WHY TERMINAL 3?
The thing I am most excited about is the community and “Good Wifi.” I’ve worked remotely from many different places and it is so inconsistent to find steady internet, plus it gets very isolating and lonely. To have an accelerated work program and work alongside like minded people is a dream come true. I am also in love with the countries we will be going to. Each one is a mini adventure within itself. I looked at other remote programs, but Terminal 3 felt the most comprehensive, adventurous and consistent. From the moment I applied, Mevish and the rest of the team were excellent communicators, and I knew they had us “the workers” in their best interest.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO TRAVEL AND WORK REMOTELY?
I left my corporate job in advertising 6 years ago so I could be my own boss and work from anywhere in the world. But for the past few years I’ve only been working from my home office just outside Portland OR, USA. I have grown increasingly bored with life and have felt stuck in a routine. I’ve been craving more adventure and play; I have a website and brand called Play With the World, but I was working hard and hardly playing. It was time to dream bigger and live my message on all fronts. This program feels like an answered prayer. So happy to find it.
WHAT WILL YOU BE WORKING ON?
I write books about how to be happy and love life fully. I will be working on my next book and writing for my blog PlayWithTheWorld.com. I have a YouTube channel so I will be using my GoPro to record epic videos for my channel/website with the exotic backdrops. I am also entrepreneur/author life coach and mentor so I will continue that piece of my business as well as a freelance writer and graphic designer. I am also a Travel Writer so I plan to pitch articles from each location and just write my little heart out from amazing corners of the world.
HOW DO YOU THINK TRAVELING WILL AFFECT YOUR CURRENT WORK?
In every way possible I will grow and expand for the better. Traveling is fuel to my soul, it ignites my passion for life, reconnects me to my best self and helps me connect more with the world and others. I fully expect to up the ante in all areas of my business and life. From the inspiration I discovery in each country to the amazing new adventures I experience and people I will meet, it will make my work stronger and help me reconnect to my authentic self.
WHAT GETS YOU UP IN THE MORNING/ WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?
Humanity. I am so passionate about people and making a difference in this world. I want to be an inspiration for others to dream bigger, honor their heart's calling and live to their fullest potential. I am living my life purpose and my passion for life and the work I do (which doesn’t feel like work) gets me excited everyday.
IF YOU COULD DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 3 WORDS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
Adventurous, Passionate, Positive.
YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE?
“The world is my office and I play with it daily.”
