Watch and be inspired by how Eduardo chose to react when life threw him a major curveball. It’s a story of what is possible, it’s a story of how impenetrable the human spirit is, it’s a story about community, resilience in the face of adversity, and it’s a story about life.
The video was shot by Denver based production company: Citizen Pictures, Bozeman based Implement Productions and Jenny Jane. This post is a brief reflection on the video by Unreasonable founder, Daniel Epstein.
My whole life, people have asked me who I look up to. I typically don’t have any names that come to mind, other than stories of my grandpa and a long list of people who I deeply admire… but “look up to” would be the wrong choice of words. Today, my answer is obvious: I sincerely look up to Eduardo Garcia ( featured in the video above ). As a friend, an inspiration, an entrepreneur, and as someone who so clearly is “getting every drop out of life”… Eduardo is someone I sincerely look up to.
I don’t think I’ve ever met a person as optimistic, on-top of life, iconoclastic, heartfelt, and relentlessly entrepreneurial as Eduardo
I had the privilege of meeting with Eduardo Garcia just a few weeks ago in Northern California. We were both speaking at a small event called “Do Lectures,” or as everyone grew to call it, “The Do.” The best way I can describe The Do is that it felt like an intimate TED of 100+ innovators, creators, and misfits; but with a slightly different set of rules. You weren’t allowed to practice your talk, it had to be authentic, and you needed to be vulnerable (a real sense of humanness dominated the few days we spent together). And this is where Eduardo comes into play.
I don’t think I’ve ever met a person as optimistic, on-top of life, iconoclastic, heartfelt, and relentlessly entrepreneurial as Eduardo (nor as handsome for that matter). We were house mates during the 3 day retreat and quickly, I could immediately tell that our conversations were the sparks to what is going to be a lifelong friendship. If anything is evident, it is that his story MUST be told. It’s a story of shattering our conceptions of what is possible, it’s a story of how impenetrable the human spirit is, it’s a story about community, resilience in the face of adversity, damn good food, and it’s a story, in short, about life.
