I’ve met so many people online and in person over the last few years who envy what I’ve done and say “I’m lucky.”
But it all came down to a decision to change my life and do something I really wanted to do.
It may seem daunting to break out of your life mold and go off that ever-so-beaten path. But, I truly believe that no matter what your circumstances, it is possible. I mean isn’t everything?
I’ve been humbled by much of the feedback I receive each week and thankful for all the new friends I’ve made from and because of my travels and this very blog. I am excited to truly help others do something like this IF IT MAKES THEM HAPPY.
You may recall, I hosted an event back in September called Meet, Plan, Go. It was the Chicago portion of a national chain of simultaneous travel events.
We had nearly 200 participants try to sign up (unfortunately, we didn’t have the room for everyone) to attend. So, I was personally encouraged at how many people out there want to go on extended travels and take some sort of career break.
Get ready to kick your travel ass into gear! Drop and give me 20 countries!
The Career Break Boot Camp is a one-of-a-kind online course and social learning platform chock full of inspiration, tips, tales, social networking with other travelers, community learning and more. For 8 weeks, travel experts will provide structure, resources, tools and motivation that will get you one step further to following your dreams.
“By the end of the course you will have a date circled in your calendar and will be ready to travel with a support structure behind you, pulling for you. And these will probably be people you will keep in touch with while you travel cheering you on and providing you continued support,” says Sherry Ott, co-founder of Briefcase to Backpack (and my friend currently sleeping on my futon–hi Sherry) .

Registration for the Inaugural Course starts now and class begins on January 9, 2011. Because we believe so much in the community/ group-class aspect, spaces are limited.
***But wait, there’s more!!
The first 20 people who register will receive a $100 gift certificate towards the Unconventional Guides by Chris Guillebeau and every person who registers will receive a free copy of his book, The Art of Non-Conformity.
