Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live without regrets?  Today I am joined by author, speaker, and nomad, Geri Suster, to deep dive into her newest book Graceful Exits: Making the Case for Getting Good at Goodbye, and learn how to build skills in navigating exits and preventing regretful goodbyes.  In 2017 Geri sold her seaside home and all her belongings to travel the United States in a 33’ Class A RV with her 2 dogs. Life on the road gave Geri the confidence and space to realize her calling to write a book geared toward helping others find grace in making difficult exits. She has since traded in her RV for a self-converted sprinter van and found a home base in Bend, Oregon but is gearing up to hit the road again to spread the word about Graceful Exits. Want Geri Suster to come to your town? Reach out! If you have ever regretted how something ended, you will not want to miss this episode. Geri gives practical advice for preventing difficult goodbyes, shares the top questions to ask yourself before any exit, explains why travel gave her the courage to follow her dreams, and so much more.  Is there an exit you wish you could have done differently?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel like a great historical adventurer?  Today I am joined by Elise Wortley, a journalist on a mission to quite literally walk in the shoes of some of history’s most fierce female explorers. After reading Alexandra David-Néel’s book My Journey to Lhasa at age 16 (and again at 28), Elise was left with many questions about the trials and tribulations Alexandra must have faced being a female traveler in the early 1900s. In search of answers, she set off to India to follow in the author’s footsteps, using only items that would have been available during the original journey - a Yak wool coat and wooden backpack. This trip has snowballed into multiple adventures sprinkled throughout the globe, tracing footprints from the past. If you love adventure, you will not want to miss this episode. Elise shares epic stories from her travels and describes exactly what it was like to travel without modern luxuries, important lessons she’s learned from the journeys, actions she took to start her first journey, and so much more.  Which modern technology do you think would be the hardest to give up when traveling?

The idea for the book all started when Ellen decided to set up a table on New York City street corners to converse with the community about grammar, eventually traveling throughout the U.S. to do the same.  If you have ever wanted to look at your community from a different perspective, then you don't want to miss this episode. Ellen shares her thought process behind starting Grammar Table, how to connect with your community in unique ways, the best unknown U.S. travel spots, and so much more.  Have you ever practiced a morning writing routine? I'd love to hear what they are and hope you will share them by sending me an audio message.
