This week we had the pleasure of chatting with Jimmy Stice, founder of the Panamanian sustainable community Kalu Yala. Currently accessible only by two miles of rough dirt road, the valley is located 50 minutes from downtown Panama City and 35 minutes from the international airport. On the tropical frontier, a settlement is being established with plans to grow into a thriving town. In our conversation, Jimmy shares the incredible story of bringing his vision to life and the adversity he’s overcome along the way. From his desire to challenge the current real estate model, the overcoming press from the JungleTown, to advice for any entrepreneur looking to dream big and find a way to succeed.


  • How to create a vision and get people to buy-in
  • How to assess risk in your venture
  • The key role marketing has in your product’s success
  • The mindset you should have when designing your product
  • And much, much more.
