Brett Niebergall is an entrepreneurial professional residing in California. As someone who has enjoyed achieving new heights and taking new leaps in his career for 15+ years, Brett ended up bringing this passion to a very literal extreme about ten years ago: skydiving. The first time he tried it, he knew he’d found something special — and he’s pursued it ever since.

Brett usually jumps in Byron, California, but he’s been fortunate enough to skydive in locations all over the United States. He’s done all types of jumps, including jumping from a hot air balloon, a helicopter, an antique aircraft, and a huge jet. He’s also jumped at night, which makes a world of difference, and has jumped in large formations with other adventurous individuals.

Skydiving is an experience like no other. For first timers, Brett Niebergall has some very simple but very true advice: be prepared to be amazed! If you pursue it, it can change your life over and over again. Each experience naturally brings its own adrenaline rush and feeling of accomplishment, both during and after the jump. However, it is also an incredibly beautiful, peaceful, liberating, profound spiritual experience when you are playing that close to death. It gives one an overview perspective of life to get out of the monotony of daily life and see everything from above. It gives one a view of Earth in the universe.

Brett created this blog to share some of his favorite experiences, photos, and recommendations when it comes to all things skydiving. For more, head over to his leadership blog or golf blog.
