iTREKKERS founder and CEO Tom Mulliez recently appeared on The Dr. Jaime Show. The popular podcast was named in the Health and Wellness category of Huffington Post’s Top Rising and Popular Podcasts Of 2017.
In addition to being a captivating and energetic host, Dr. Jaime Kulaga maintains a highly regarded reputation as a successful Author, Motivational Speaker, Educator, Coach, and Entrepreneur.
Tom created iTREKKERS as a result of his passion for nature and the mission to connect individuals with nature. He believes that in modern, tech-focused society, there is a lost generation that has yet to connect with Mother Nature. In fact, he says, their connection with the great outdoors is so weakened that many don’t know where or how to get involved. The iTREKKERS.com platform aims to rekindle our connection with nature by providing those individuals with outdoor experiences in a healthy and secure setting.
Because The Dr. Jaime Show focuses on providing viewers with speakers and topics that inspire wellness, goals and happiness, iTREKKERS is a natural fit. To begin every show, Dr. Jaime reads a quote to her guest and asks the speaker their thoughts. This time there were two – one was the Henry David Thoreau quote, “I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.” Tom explains that the quote resonates with him because he embraces life and feels connected with something much bigger than him.
Tom, a husband and father of three children, understands the importance of exploring and connecting with nature at all ages. Through iTREKKERS, Tom aims to facilitate a bond with nature for everyone, through exposure to the outdoors. iTREKKERS aims to promote advocacy and empathy towards the environment and the earth. He believes that establishing emotional connections with nature helps create a very positive impact on an individual and will inspire others to do the same.
Tom created iTREKKERS as a solution: as easy way to unite a guide with those individuals who are new to the outdoors and have not yet experienced that connection to nature. He realized that because of their expertise, guides would be a perfect way to make an outdoor experience even better. iTREKKERS guides are experts in their field and are able to safely take you through your own unique journey. Whether it is Shark Fishing, Sandbar Funday, Nighttime Bowfishing, Camping, or Hiking, your guide brings the gear and sets everything up making your experience completely hassle-free.
The iTREKKERS experience acts as a jumpstart to developing the skills and processes of being your own guide. Tom compares this concept to the question, “How do you grow a forest?” He describes the process by beginning with a tree that grows nuts, but then the nuts fall, and then those nuts will grow into their own trees.
Tom’s message: Do you feel stuck inside and want to reconnect through outdoor experiences? Get outside with iTREKKERS!
Dr. Jaime notes that families can combat the generational disconnect with nature by completing an outdoor experience as a family and adapting to spending more time outdoors. iTREKKERS exemplifies an innovative way to bond with family, friends, or even individually, all while cultivating a connection with the outdoors.
