The story of how Jaimal Yogis and I met is serendipitous. A few years ago, I came across his book Saltwater Buddha and I emailed him to ask if I could interview him for The Skool of Life. Three years later, Jaimal contacted me to ask if I could help him with the marketing for his new book The Fear Project. It was a challenge I was excited to take on.
