Travel story + a magical wish for you It's Linda here with a travel story and a wish for you in 2019. This time 3 years ago, I was on a remote island off the coast of northern Norway. It took me THREE flights from Amsterdam to get there! See the red dot below? The one that's even closer to the North Pole than Iceland? That's where I was, in the tiny village of Laukvik (population maybe 50!) with not much more than the vast Norwegian Sea out my window. I was there to see the Northern Lights, [...]

Do You Know Why Your Customer Chose YOU? The answer is that you provide some kind of value to them. They did not choose you because your price was cheapest, or because you’re the only one out there. They chose you because in some way you were able to convince them that your value was higher than someone else’s. They believed your promise enough to pay good money to you to provide to them that value. What makes customers believe the promise? Your Lead Magnet Was High Quality We’ve talked before about your giveaway being relevant, high-quality and something [...]
Apply for Barcelona in 2018 & Save BIG You know how, when you're in the market for a new car, all of a sudden you see gazillions of the car that you're interested in? In the same color?? That's what happens when you say, "I'm going to Barcelona." All of a sudden, everyone you talk to is crazy about Barcelona and has it at the top of their bucket list! That's what's happening now, as Pam and I are interviewing people for our 2019 Adventurous Life co-working trips. It's "Barcelona everywhere!" What makes Barcelona so enticing? Ahhh, let me [...]
Postcard from Bali It's WILD here in Bali! We've been here in Bali with our Adventurous Life group for only a week now, and have already had some amazing experiences! I (Linda) sit now in our gorgeous coworking space, rivaled only by the even more gorgeous villas we live in, and I have several fun highlights to share with you. Before I do, I want to make sure you know that THIS weekend through what we're calling Travel Tuesday is an opportunity for you to save $1,000 off of Adventurous Life 2019 trip rates! All you have to do [...]
Pug in a Blanket Pam here. Cute picture huh? This is pretty much what I look like as I'm writing to you. The cold weather has hit Ontario and I've been wrapping myself up in blankets and lamenting about the summer past. It's actually snowing - ick. It's the first time I've seen the white stuff this year and it's not one of my favourite sights. :( If you're like me and hate the cold and want to chase the summer, come along with us to the gloriously warm beauty of Southeast Asia. We have two spots left [...]
$10 Massages? One of the things Pam and I are MOST looking forward to on our next Adventurous Life co-working trip to BALI is the $10 massages! YES, you read that right: $10 for a 60-minute massage! We're thinking we might just have to get one every day while we're there! I mean, how much goodness can we stand?!As a reminder, Pam and I are taking a group of entrepreneurs to BALI in mid-November for an experience like no other. It's part retreat, part live-abroad experience, part workshop, part business mastermind, part tour -- and because it's Bali, part [...]
Freestyle Fridays: What are they all about? When Pam and I talk and write about our Adventurous Life trips, we tend to focus on the locations we're in...or headed to. I mean, of course! They ARE amazing. And beautiful. And exciting. Portugal, Rome, Bali. (And our soon-to-be-announced 2019 destinations!) They're the stars of the experience, for sure.But what's interesting is that when we ask our participants for highlights of their experience, almost all of them mention our Freestyle Friday get-togethers. They are what truly make the experience of an Adventurous Life trip so unique -- and SO VALUABLE to [...]
The Bali Way Five days into our Adventurous Life month-long co-working trip in Rome, we are absolutely LOVING it!Some of our Rome participants get up at the crack of dawn and walk the streets of historic Rome without the crowds of tourists. Gorgeous! Others stay up late drinking delicious red wine, enjoying the fresh night air and getting to know new friends. In our 5 short days here, we've all gotten situated in our local apartments (a 5-minute walk from St. Peter's Basilica!), taken a tour highlighting the magnificence of Rome, shared dinner AND enjoyed a potluck, learned [...]
ROME REGISTRATION CLOSING THIS WEEK. Pam here and truthfully, if I let fear dictate, I wouldn't be writing to you today. I was in your position less than two years ago when I traveled to Buenos Aires with a group similar to Adventurous Life (but with younger - much younger participants). I really wanted to travel, just not alone, and it was really hard to find friends who could travel as often and for as long as I wanted. I took the leap. And let me tell you, that leap was SO far outside my comfort zone... AND [...]
Like Birds on a Wire Have you ever had "magic mushrooms?" When I (Linda) was 30, I traveled with 3 friends to the highlands of southern Mexico and had my one and only experience with them. But what a memory! It's not the sort of thing I'd normally write you about. But one thing that happened during the experience perfectly illustrates something I wanted to describe to you about the way our Adventurous Life trips work. :-)One of my 3 friends with me in Mexico was the daring sort and discovered where to find fresh mushrooms, so we [...]
