- EP 011 Wesley Jacobs, Founder – Apollo Medical Travel

Wesley is the Founder of Apollo Medical Travel. An Army brat, he spent his childhood living across the United States and Europe. He calls Charlotte, North Carolina home.

Wesley is a Distinguished Graduate with Institute Honors and a Distinguished Military Graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, where he graduated with a 4.00 GPA in Economics & Business. His studies and military education took him to the Arabic Language Institutes of Fez and Meknes in Morocco, the Australian National University, and the Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy in Thailand.

Upon graduation from VMI, Wesley served as an infantry officer in the 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment based out of Joint Base Lewis McChord, Washington. During his time in the Army, he had the privilege of training alongside America’s Pacific partners, including the Indian, South Korean, Thai, and Filipino militaries in roles ranging from Rifle Platoon Leader to Battle Captain.

In our conversation, Wesley talked about his experience in the military. He shared his knowledge and insights on how to build your business through the difficult times you may face. We also discussed:

- How the pandemic added hurdles to running a company
- How advertising didn’t help as much as positive reviews and word of mouth
- Why running a business means you will have to work harder and sacrifice more than your friends who work for larger companies
- How “fear setting” is a powerful tool and exercise that helps your mind
