About This Episode

Meet Jeremy Hill, Co-Founder and CEO of Arcana — a next generation nature resort complete with seasonally immersive science-based experiences that help guests feel nature’s true restorative powers.

Jeremy was working in banking and had climbed the proverbial and prestigious corporate ladder for years.  But one day, as he was staring out the window of his beautiful corner office, the question “what the heck am I doing with my life?” assaulted his brain!

While he couldn’t have known it at the time, this moment would be the beginning of a major career pivot…it was this moment that would ultimately lead Jeremy to leave the corporate world behind, jump into entrepreneurship, and set out on a mission to build a supernatural hospitality brand.

In this conversation, Jeremy and I discuss:

  • How to build a truly experiential and multi-sensory hospitality brand
  • How Arcana is reimagining food and beverage for its guests in a truly innovative way
  • How much money he raised to get Arcana’s first site off the ground
  • And so much more
