The RebelRebel Podcast is a regular dive into the hearts and minds of creative rebels and entrepreneurs.

We talk about life, the universe, and what makes us get up every morning with a bounce in our step; or hard-earned advice on how to best claw your way across the kitchen floor to get that first cup of coffee.

Sometimes it’s about deadlines and exploring limitations, but mostly it’s about challenging ourselves and the world to make a difference and not play small.

From dreams of the big leagues, to 20,000 leagues under the sea. 

Take a deep dive with Jeff Barnes as he navigates from Navy life to entrepreneurship. Learn how he leverages automation and systems to disrupt traditional business norms.

From the roaring engines of a Navy fast-attack submarine to the quiet hum of setting up events for the Angel Investors Network, Jeff Barnes knows a thing or two about adapting and conquering. Not just a man with a nuclear engineering technology degree in his arsenal, Jeff’s passion lies in dissecting businesses and infusing them with the magic sauce of automation and systems.

In this high-octane discussion, we dive deep. Jeff unfolds the complexities of his transition from military life to the civilian hustle, navigating choppy waters and uncharted territories. He talks about feeling the constraints of a nine-to-five, despite having all the outward markers of success. Talk about a guy who doesn’t just rest on his laurels—Jeff's the poster child for rebounding from adversity, and he's got the scars to prove it. But let’s not forget, those scars tell stories of resilience and a damn-good Rebel spirit.
