Todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired podcast interview is one of those ladies, who will inspire so many people out there that would love to leave the safety of their positions and travel the world feeling inspired.
The kind of freedom that comes with choices and excitement at every turn.
Your sitting at your work and you start wondering where you could go if you weren't chained to the desk.
Your mind wanders. You love the image. But then you shake it off and get back to living in the real world.
Well our guest today had those same feeings but instead of staying in the office environment, following the career she had created, she made living in the real world all about travelling new paths, experiencing adventure on every corner and having a kick ass life.
She was an investment banker in California and worked in the stressful environment until she realised that it was burn out time.
She realised that she had travelled a path that was not for her, and as Duran Duran once sang "Im on a ride and I wanna get off, but they won't slow down the roundabout"
So she jumped off the roundabout herself.,bought a one way ticket to Thailand, sold her belongings and left everything she knew behind on September 27, 2012, with nothing but a carry-on backpack.
She had never done this before, and certainly had never travelled on her own, but she still did it.
Was she scared to say goodbye to everything ?
Was she able to plan enough to make sure that she wasn't literlaly going into the unknown?
And of course the key question that everyone will want to now is how has she managed to fund the travelling lifestyle?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, on the top rated business podcast, the one and only Kristin Addis.
