Podcast Episode 71: How to Make a Major Life Transition, an Interview with Jeff Jones

Feb 2, 2013 | Podcasts

In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by Andy Traub.

On today’s podcast, professional drummer Jeff Jones, formerly of the band Big Daddy Weave, joins Andy and A.T. to talk about transitioning your life and career.


After reading The Traveler’s Gift and listening to the podcast, Jeff decided it was time to transition from being a drummer to becoming a speaker.

  • He had been the drummer for Big Daddy Weave, touring all over the country and the world, for 13 years.
  • He had been gone about 140 days per year for his family’s entire life.


Jeff came up with the acronym WISE, which has become the crux of his message.

  • It stands for What I Sacrifice Every Day.
  • The acronym embodies the choices you make in order to achieve the results you want in your life.
  • When he was a kid and decided he wanted to play drums for a living, he began making sacrifices every single day in order to achieve that dream.


Andy’s Storms of Perfection series also inspired Jeff to create a custom pair of drumsticks for camouflage company Mossy Oak.

  • The series inspired him to take action.
  • It taught him that almost every successful person started out overcoming adversity.
  • You don’t have to be “special” to be successful.
  • All you have to do is seek wisdom and take action.
