Jason shares a serendipitous journey that brought the Australian native halfway around the world to Montana, USA where, over the next two decades, he was able to carve out his own piece of the American Dream.

He refers to the old saying, “You can’t teach common sense,” to explain his success as an immigrant despite lacking a college degree. “If you can’t make good, fundamental decisions,” says Jason, “then you’re probably not going to be in business for yourself.”[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider size=”20″][mk_image src=”” image_size=”full” title=”Jason Veitch & Ted Bainbridge” desc=”Bozeman, MT”][mk_padding_divider size=”20″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1633624193534{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Jason speaks on the lessons he took from his personal life that he applies to business, as well as lessons learned in business (particularly from working with ultra-wealthy clients) that he applies to his personal life.

Finally, Jason touches on how the opportunity to establish Arctic Spas of Bozeman came about, and how he overcame a period of near-bankruptcy to eventually get to the point where “the low months felt as good as the high months.”[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider size=”20″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1625782555768{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]

Key Quotes from Episode

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1633623264139{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]

  • Not having a college degree doesn’t pigeonhole you because our life takes us in different directions. And we get different experiences that are arguably more valuable than a college degree.
  • Especially in business, and maybe in relationships as well—the first person that speaks, loses.
  • People don’t know what you’ve gone through before you got lucky.
  • If you’re not trying something different, it doesn’t matter if you fail. It really doesn’t, because doing nothing is the worst thing you can do.
