Managing Travel Full Time With Jordan Verni

Meet Jordan Verni, the marketing mind and partner in life + business behind pro surfer, Ben Gravy.

Tied to a mutual love for legendary swells, the ocean, & a rock solid brand, Jordan & Ben have been taking the nation by storm (and surf). Keep reading to see what I mean!

As a fellow surf-loving, globe-trotting, wife & husband duo, it makes sense why I feel so aligned with Jordan. I’m grateful to have this opportunity to share a little of her story with you. It’s a glorious coming together of marketing, Mother Earth & the magic of doing what you love.

It’s tempting to think you have little in common with the business behind a pro surfing brand, but I have a feeling you’ll be able to relate to Jordan & Ben’s experience. As entrepreneurs, “it never stops” probably sounds familiar no matter what business you’re running.

Here’s what Jordan has to share:

“Before working with Ben, I hardly traveled but that quickly changed. Our business depends on traveling & going where the best swell is to surf. Working while traveling can be difficult. Ben & I are a team. In the beginning, it was just the two of us on the road. I would help film everything for our YouTube channel, from surfing to daily life. Then, Ben would edit all night to upload the video in the morning. For the past 4 years, we’ve been working on a documentary of Ben surfing in all fifty states–it’s called ‘For The Dream.’ Traveling for work is a blessing–I’m grateful we get to do it together and with the small team we’ve built over the years.

When you work for yourself, it never stops. Keeping a presence on social media doesn’t stop. We have to continuously create ideas to film & upload content no matter what’s going on. My day to day schedule changes, but mostly I handle our monthly schedules, point of content for brands & handle freelance marketing I do on the side.

Staying organized is my main goal in business. Keeping a schedule isn't always easy while traveling, as things pop up constantly, but if I keep our team focused on the main goal every day, everything usually works out. Every day is a new lesson, too. Even if something isn't perfect, I learn from it & don't beat myself up about it.”

Hi there! Welcome to my free resources page, where I share all kinds of freebies, templates and guides for creative business owners, artists, and entrepreneurs.

If we haven't met yet, hi! I'm Magi. I'm lawyer, educator, photographer, storyteller, traveler, and entrepreneur. My journey has taken her from photographing professional surfers while swimming in some of the world's most epic waves to receiving a Juris Doctorate from Rutgers Law.

If I'm not photographing a wedding with my husband, Scott, in a remote locale, managing our team of Associate Photographers, or providing legal counsel to creative business owners, then you can probably find me eating an açai bowl, chasing my pup, Arti, around the beach, or watching SVU reruns in our bungalow.

I hope you find these intentionally-crafted resources useful, and if there's anything else I can do for you and your business, please reach out!
