Bridget Hilton | Keynote Speaker | Burnout Mental Health Motivation Workplace Belonging | Author Experiential Billionaire


Frequently, we find ourselves postponing our dreams, thinking they'll happen “someday.” But today we questioned this tendency, inviting a contemplation of life's richness that extends far beyond the conventional metrics of wealth. In this episode, Bridget Hilton, Joe Huff and Aileen Xu navigate the art, science, and path to constructing a life abundant in meaningful experiences.

Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff are entrepreneurs who have dedicated themselves to the pursuit of experiences. In a world fixated on financial success, they remind us that the regrets of those at life's end barely revolve around money. Instead, the regrets echo the experiences left unexplored. Their journey is a testament to the richness of a life lived intentionally. Their recently released book, “Build a Life Rich in Experiences and Die With No Regrets,” serves as a blueprint backed by research on the art, science, and path to building a life rich in experiences.
