This week's guest is Jeff Rasley and, today, he has some very interesting travel stories for us; including the time he woke up in a hospital in Mexico with an armed guard outside his room and learned he was under arrest without knowing why.

We also hear about his experiences hitching across the United States for six weeks (with only $65 dollars in his pocket) when he was fresh out of high school and the time he and his then-girlfriend accidentally wandered onto a military base in Greece.

Tune in to hear these stories and more!

This week's Friday episode is a special treat! Former guest, Kathleen Ventura, is back on the show one year (almost to the exact day) after her first appearance to give us an update on what's changed in her life.

I'm incredibly honored to say, in this episode, she publicly announces for the first time a major shift she's making in her business. I'll be the first to say, I can't wait to see where this new direction will take her.

If you haven't listened to Kathleen's original appearance yet, both of the episodes are linked in the show notes.

This week's guest is Emma McLaren and we're getting down to the nitty-gritty of what life is really like as a digital (or more traditional) nomad.

I found Emma's no B.S. attitude, and passion for the nomadic way of being, incredibly refreshing and hope you do as well.

In today's special episode, I'm doing another Living Unconventionally Facebook Community Member Spotlight.

Today's spotlight is on Mimi Schector and we talk about her epic 5-week trek across the African Serengeti as part of a documentary for National Geographic in which she was starved (less than 400 calories/day while walking for 6-8 hours each day), chased by wild animals, and forced to swim across crocodile-infested waters.

We also talk about how she's currently finding the balance between working a "stable" corporate job and experiencing the adventure she craves.
