E42: NATE & CANDICE LEAVITT, WILD ROOTS OUTDOORS

11/14/2017  | 65 MINUTES

This week’s guest: Nate and Candice Leavitt – a Utah-based couple with four boys, ages 3–9. They had an idea, sparked by Candice and executed by Nate, which turned into a blog and Instagram account that inspires people to get out and plant wild roots. This power couple has a goal to share genuine content and create relationships with real moments. Don’t skip out on hearing their birthday camping story!

PERSONAL TICKS:

  • Camping and getting outdoors with the family.
  • Seeing life from children’s eyes. Life slows down because everything is new.
  • Good Design - branding (Mostly Nate, but I’m sure Candice knows a thing or two).

PERSONAL TICK-OFF:

  • Bad User Interfaces.
  • Nate’s ADD (It’s actually a tick-off for both).
  • Fakers, Gossip, Drama (This is one is all Candice).

PROFESSIONAL TICKS:

  • Meeting people that are doing cool things. People finding new ways to do things. People doing things differently. The sense of community.
  • Sharing genuine content.
  • Starting something and just seeing where it takes you.
  • Exploring new places and trying to find obscure spots away from people.
  • Receiving messages where people went and camped for the first time, or followed a nugget of their advice.

PROFESSIONAL TICK-OFFS:

  • Pictures of people starring into the distance and taking social media so seriously.
  • When people ghost you as a means of saying no, instead of telling you “no.”
  • Finding balance and priorities in life (soccer is taking over life!)
