A Life Well Lived

a life well lived jim whittaker

Fifty years ago, Jim Whittaker became the first American to summit Mt. Everest.  Today he’s still an adventurer and and avid environmentalist.  He was the first full-time employee of REI, and retired as President and CEO after 25 years with the company.

He has a couple of things to say. And we’re all ears.

 

“Being out on the edge, with everything at risk, is where you learn and grow the most.” – Jim Whittaker
