Facing Your Fears & Living the Life You Really Want with Marketing Strategist Emily Weichel

In this episode I speak with Emily Weichel a marketing specialist who has traveled the world as a digital nomad. We chat about how she grew up in Pennsylvania in a small town and struggled to connect with anyone who shared her dreams of travel.

Knowing it wouldn’t be easy, Emily shares the story of how she got there and how you can create a lifestyle that includes travel. Tune in as she shares the unexpected twists and turns that taught her valuable lessons along the way and how she faced her fears and said “yes” to the life she wanted anyway.  I hope Emily’s story inspires you to design the life you really want, step by step.

Covered in this episode:

  • Learning how to build the confidence to make bold moves at a young age
  • The importance of working in an office when you’re starting out
  • Lessons from taking advantage of school travel or volunteer programs when you’re young
  • Fear is long, life is short
  • Digital Nomad hot spots like Lisbon and Chiang Mai
  • How Emily now works from the road
