Much like myself, Jason Havey has lived a super interesting life, rich with amazing experiences. A successful businessman, Jason is the COO of Onnit Labs global health and wellness brand, formerly an award winning Hotelier with 16 years of experience, most recently as General Manager of both the Hilton Madison Monona Terrace and the Sheraton Madison at the same time and originally an infantry mortarman, which eventually lead to him becoming a Military Intelligence Analyst for a Blackhawk helicopter unit.
This has honestly been one of the most fascinating explorations of another person’s life that I’ve ever had the pleasure of featuring on the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast.
We cover a vast array of subject matter from growing up super poor in Wisconsin as the child of a single mother, surviving a horrific car crash, breaking 3 vertebrae and having to learn how to walk again, the impact that float tanks make to how he operates, taking Iowaska in Peru not once, but twice, Reverend Jim Jones and the Jonestown massacre in Guatemala, being taken far outside his comfort zone and feeling like his eyes were opened for the first time the jungles of Central America during his military service and the joys of becoming a bone marrow donor and the privilege of being able to save the life of another person.
This Wisconsin native now resides in Austin (Texas) and for the past 3 years Jason has been the host of the Spinning Logic Podcast with over 150 episodes to date, where the goal of Spinning Logic is to thread together the unique stories of unique guests and to celebrate the vast array of people that represent humankind.
Jason Havey is an aggressive optimist, who believes strongly in the power of the individual to improve themselves and thus, the world. He also believes in the beauty of all things he finds true joy in interacting with unique individuals, places, events and stories.
