Michael Gebben spent 7 years building a video company that was the envy of everyone in his field, GebbsTV. Until, one day, he woke up to the realization that he’d built a cage of his own making. And given up so much of his life in the name of something that didn’t really mean a whole lot. So he hit reset, and over the last three years, rebuilt his life and his career around what matters and even launched a new inspirational Youtube channel. Michael’s current company Jumpstarters helps creative entrepreneurs to get over the same hurdles that he was able to conquer, allowing him to work with individuals such as Tim Ferris, Tony Robbins and Richard Branson. Michael is a big believer in Massive Imperfect Action rather than getting stuck in the minutia and never moving forward.
