· “Danielle LaPorte keeps it real on her blog, podcasts and IG. The “Fire Starter” book was the first book I read by her.  And just like that – bam 💥!  I was hooked!  Inspirational without being holier-than-thou, it’s one of my top 5 favorite books of all time. The “Desire Map” book is a personal, clear-cut path to figuring out what matters to you. Her #Truthbomb series on IG is a quick hit of daily motivation, too. Excited to read her latest book soon (“White Hot Truth”).  Learn more: http://www.daniellelaporte.com/about/

· Ever considered giving your bucket list a deadline? Well, Danny Dover did just that and his story will inspire even the most determined cynic. Check it out: https://www.lifelisted.com

· Cupcakes, travel, a new book and an irreverent sense of humor. Geraldine (a.k.a. “The Everywhereist”) is the high priestess of living a bad-ass life. Inspiration and humor at: http://www.everywhereist.com

· Travel works for me to feel free and alive. And I do my best thinking at 35,000 feet. Google Flights “explore destinations” map is my crack.  I choose my closest airport, look at the world map of airports and click on cities around the globe to get flight pricing.  It helps me narrow down what/where I’m MOST interested in going next. WARNING: highly addictive. https://www.google.com/flights/

· https://www.flexjobs.com to find more flexible work. Anyone daydreaming of quitting their 9 to 5 job should check it out. There are other options than the daily rat race (🚫🐀🏁) and this site has a curated, legit list of possibiities.

The Beginning is Here…a new year, a clean slate

IMG_8367

HELLO & WELCOME to my little incubator for hatching fresh ideas to enjoy & celebrate life!  Some of these baby-faced notions will gain wobbly footing, take a few tentative glides and eventually soar effortlessly above the clouds.

It’s the beginning of a mishmash of travel tales, inspiration, links to cool stuff and random ramblings.  All bets are off…the only constants will be relentless optimism and a scrappy determination to spread my wings & live more fully.  Objects may shift during flight, so buckle up and thanks for flying along!
