“I always say, the more we experience, the more we have to offer to others.”
- Jesse

JESSE ITZLER only eats fruit ’til noon, loves (and managed!) Run-D.M.C., and enjoys living life “out of the box.” In fact, he doesn’t even have a box. As one of the world's top rated live speakers, Jesse is the author of the New York Times bestselling book “Living With a Seal” as well as the hit “Living With The Monks.” He is the co-founder of Marquis Jet, the world’s largest private jet card company which he and his partner sold to Warren Buffett’s NetJets; Zico Coconut Water, which he and his partners sold to The Coca-Cola Company; and 29029 which he and his team sold to iFit.

Jesse has had a very unconventional journey as an entrepreneur. With no traditional background in any of the companies he’s built, he’s created success through fostering relationships, trusting his gut and thinking outside of the box. He’s lived on a monastery with monks, ran several 100-mile races, and trained with Wim Hof in the art of cold therapy and breath work. He started Build Your Life Resume® as a way to share his best practices in business, wellness and mindset, as well as his approach to living life to the fullest with as many people as possible.

He’s a former rapper on MTV and wrote and performed the NBA’s Emmy Award-winning “I Love This Game” music campaign and the popular New York Knicks anthem “Go NY Go.” When he’s not running ultra-marathons, eating vegan food or being a dad to his four kids, Jesse can be found at the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks games, where he’s an owner of the team. He is married to Spanx founder Sara Blakely.

“As the founder of BYLR®, I’ve set up a curriculum of simple actionable takeaways to act as a guide for people to seek success in MULTIPLE buckets: Business, health, mindset, relationships, etc. Our goal is to get THE MOST OUT OF LIFE while we can. Our bus ride is short and we have to optimize our time here. Through BYLR® we’ve created an incredible Calendar Club™ Community of people who prioritize adventure, relationships and striving for our greatest potential.”
