How This Former Monk Became A Social Media Superstar [Video]

In the season four premier of Leaders Create Leaders, Gerard Adams sits down to discuss what it means to be a conscious creator and balance the ego with the inspiring Jay Shetty.

Born and raised in London, Jay was a shy, introverted young boy who always strived to make a positive difference.

As a child, he was bullied for being overweight and a little nerdy but he never let these experiences affect him.

Like any teenager, Jay spent most of those years experimenting with what the world had to offer.

Tired of being simply “good,”

After meeting a monk when he was 18, Jay started redefining success for himself. He now wanted a life of service, impact and passion as opposed to money, fame and power.

Shetty is an award winning host, storyteller, interviewer and producer who is on a mission to make wisdom go viral.

Since launching his video channel in 2016, Jay’s viral wisdom videos have garnered over 1 billion views and gained over 3 million followers globally. This makes him one of the most viewed people on the internet internationally.

Jay aims to share knowledge at the pace we want entertainment, something he likes to call “making wisdom go viral.” He has created content for and partnered with Snapchat, Facebook, National Geographic, Nasdaq and HuffPost to name a few.

In this episode, Shetty shares the journey he took as a former monk all the way to his personal awakening and what it means to really be “WOKE.”
