332: Become an Experiential Billionaire: the path to a rich and meaningful life - Joe Huff, Bridget Hilton

Joe huff bridget hilton on air with ella

A rich life doesn't need to correlate with your financial status

Our experiences are the real wealth of our lives. But if that’s the case, why aren't we taught how we seek out and invest in them above all else? Instead, we postpone our personal goals to a vague "someday," and put them off until it’s too late.

Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff are obsessed with experiences. They spent years interviewing social science experts, conducting the largest study ever done on 'life experiences,' and turning themselves into experiential guinea pigs.

What would your life look like if you invested in your own life story?

Bridget and Joe's journey to becoming 'experiential billionaires' began when they met in 2012 and embarked on a series of adventures together. Their shared passion for meaningful experiences led them to create a social enterprise where they provided hearing aids to more than 50,000 people through the proceeds from their headphones, earbuds and speakers. Through their work and personal experiences, they have come to understand that living a life rich in experiences has profound impact on our overall well-being and happiness.

Build a life rich in experiences and die with no regrets

We're talking in this episode about how to live a rich life, filled with worthwhile experiences and avoiding life's regrets for what we didn't do.

Your calendar holds your real wealth.


  • What is an Experiential Billionaire?

  • Humble beginnings do not dictate your opportunities for adventure

  • We all want to live a life with purpose - but, how do we do it?

  • "We can make more money, and we can never make more time."

  • The role of radical accountability in a purposeful life

  • The importance of play - why did we stop?

  • The role of community and connection

  • "Show me your friends and I'll show you your future."

  • Wealth and material possessions do not necessarily equate to a rich and fulfilling life

  • Building enriching friendships through experiences, and enriching experiences with friends
