About Jim Gale
Jim has spent his adult life exploring, he backpacked through 37 countries, lived with the Maasai, experienced Island life in Hawaii for a time all learning about cultures and fine tuning his interests. At 29, he set new goals starting with “to be retired in 3 years,” and then created a billion dollar mortgage company in three years helping him accomplish that life goal.
Following the achievement of his mortgage success, he bought a boat and lived on the ocean for a year, then moved to Costa Rica to build eco-villages where he discovered permaculture. This was a life-changing experience, the A-HA moment where he set a new mission to bring this concept to every household in the world.
Our team is proud to work for a company that aims to make the world a better place.
