Ordinary Sherpa: Family Adventure Coaching and Design

May 4, 2022

I am coming down from an intense and yet completely fulfilling weekend at Travel Con.  It was my first conference for travel based creators and all I can say is it was nourishing for my soul.  The 80 degree weather and Memphis gems added to my delight as well.  The keynote from Pico Iyer was truly the most prophetic thing I have ever heard.  But others such as break outs on monetizing a travel website, Being a successful digital Nomad, how to pitch to brands, and keynotes from Pauline Frommer (her dad was the grandfather of travel guides) and Jeff Goins, author of Artists Don’t Starve.  They are offering a virtual pass for $99.  I am an affiliate and if you use my link you will also be supporting Ordinary Sherpa in the process.

All that to say, I was up to late, I was over energized and I got home REALLY early on Monday morning and went to work.  I am tired.  If anyone wants to help kickstart me into May which is a huge month with over a dozen podcast recordings, a book launch (Beyond Normal Luanches May 17, 2022) and the final leg of spring activities before we embark on our summer trek we are calling Northern RV Exposure into Canada and Alaska.  I will accept your coffee donations!

I really enjoy podcasting and having conversation without all the ads and interruptions many podcasters use.  If you enjoy the ideas, find joy or inspiration from my work, you can buy me a coffee to say thanks and support the show.  If you want to go deeper with the content and/or get more engaged you can find additional ways to support the show through the links below.

As read on Linked In:
Today marks 2 years without alcohol. 
While I know that LinkedIn is supposed to be a *~professional~* place, I won't stop talking about sobriety here. The more we see it out in the open, the more it is normalized, the more we elevate our compassion and empathy for others, the more others who are struggling can feel seen.
This past year was all about living. The first year seemed to be about thinking, about therapy, looking inward, and in the second year, I've been trying to actually live the values and beliefs I've reclaimed as my own.
Giving up alcohol is still the best decision that I've ever made.
I don't think I would have quit my job and started my own business with alcohol still in my life.
I don't think I would be actively trying new things, like skiing or Ukulele.
I don't think I would be as STOKED as I am.

So here's to keeping this thing going and to year three and all the lessons it will bring.

If you look at Linked In, You might find that our guest is a podcast Coach, consultant and strategist, copywriter and Editor from Boulder Colorado.  But we are more than the titles on Linked In and the public profiles we share with the world. In recent years Emily is uncovering stories in herself and others that have been hushed or overlooked to favor the normal life trajectory.  As the host and producer of the Nature Untold Podcast, she tells stories of sobriety, addiction, and recovery within the outdoor community and industry I am so honored to have Emily Holland as a guest today.
