Going Places?

When setting out on a journey
Do not seek advice from someone
Who has never left home.

Feeding Your Wanderlust

Postcard from Barbara

Ah, springtime. It’s not just plants and trees that awaken at this time of year. You may find new ideas, new projects popping up all over the place.

Writer and entrepreneur Paul Hawken suggests that gardening is the best training for running a business. It’s a perfect metaphor. As every farmer knows, what happens in the fall depends on what you’ve planted in the spring. 

Despite a freak accident that left me with a bruised rib and housebound this past week,I’ve been consumed with plans for traveling in the coming months. My wanderlust is demanding to be fed.

Since wanderlust is fueled by curiosity, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that those of us who revel in creating a business also are eager to explore the world. I recently read that there are an estimated 1,000,000 Americans who are full-time RVers. That’s only one way of traveling, of course.

I’ve written about my years of frustration in wanting to travel and not making it happen. It wasn’t until my entrepreneurial mindset woke up that I discovered I could create a business that paid me to travel. 

That revelation plus some great information, has taken me farther than I’d ever imagined possible. That’s also why I’m so excited about the new version of How to Support Your Wanderlust that’s coming up in Las Vegas on May 15.

I’ve expanded the seminar to include even more useful options for nomadic entrepreneurs and am eager to share.

PS I would love to take this new version on the road. If you’d like to collaborate, send me a message and we’ll look at the options.

Feeding Your Wanderlust

I recently came across this message from a former participant in my Wanderlust seminar:

A few years ago, my wife and I took your How to Support Your Wanderlust class. I think we began brainstorming on the drive home and it didn’t stop. We quit our jobs, sold our house and furnishings. It took a great deal of time and effort, but I’m happy to report that we are now full-time RVers.

We also started a business selling at flea markets which has proved to be both fun and profitable. Not only are we supporting our wanderlust, we’re having the best time we’ve ever had earning money and meeting people. And we’ve never forgotten that it all began with your terrific class. Thank you so much.
