Daring World of Adventure

Armando Cruz Are You a RICH Modern Man? | Ep. 208Armando views the world from a different lens. To him, adventure is an opportunity to extract wonder from each experience that life has to offer. It motivates him both as a father as a coach.

Changing Perspectives

It was not always the same thing for Armando. Growing up, he learned that anything is possible through hard work. Little did he know that his perspective was going to change.

“I was missing everything that was happening because I was working so hard to start life, not realizing that I was living it right there.” – Armando Cruz

All his attention was geared towards earning a Master’s degree at a particular university. When things failed, he came to a halt and questioned the purpose of all his hard work. He realized that he was just allowing life to pass by.

Exploring the West in 3 Months

Not long after, his friend invited him to explore the west. For three and a half months, they lived in the car and traveled around the country.

He learned to appreciate the beauty there was as they went to Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, California, Las Vegas, Texas, and back to Miami. The experience definitely marked a new beginning in his life.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
