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.
