Lancaster. She and her daughter Caroline also
invited me to be their houseguest while I was
After the seminars were finished on Saturday, I
was ready for an early bedtime so headed
upstairs to the guest room. I could faintly hear
voices coming from the living room. When I awoke

and daughter was still going on.
In the morning, Gillian excitedly told me that
she and Caroline had spent the evening

Colorado Free University in
Denver was one of the first places I began

Marketing is on the agenda there, too.

Those two trips are warm-ups for the final
Joyfully Jobless Weekend which is
happening in Boise, ID. This is
the final Weekend for 2013 and includes my most
popular programs: Making a Living Without a
Job, Establish Yourself as an Expert
and How to Support Your Wanderlust. You
can sign up for all 3 (if you hurry) and get a
discount on the idea-filled event.

From Boise, I zip to Phoenix
for the first ever Fund Your Life
Overseas Conference where I'll be doing
three presentations and listening eagerly to all
the other great speakers they've assembled. If
you've dreamed of living abroad or creating a
portable business to fund your travels, this is
the place to gather your power tools.
Would love to have you join me at one-or
several-of these learning adventures.
