These are the show notes of episode #014 of the podcast ‘The Business of Glamping and Unique Holiday Rentals’ with Sarah Riley from Inspired Camping and Inspired Courses.
This episode is a little bit different. This is my story and how I ended up doing what I do now in the unique hospitality and glamping industry.
This one is personal, raw and unedited so forgive me that I get a bit tearful at one point. I also get a bit geeky and woo, woo so you will have to forgive me for that too. As always, your comments and reviews on iTunes will be really appreciated… especially as I have really bared my soul in this episode.
You know it’s really interesting that after the 2008 recession when many people lost their jobs, lots of them took up a new vocation and suddenly found that they were finally following their dream.
Lots of them are highly successful professionals so it seems a shame that hard times and trauma were the things that rocked them out of their mediocre life.
I am someone who – for one reason or another – had dreams of doing something different, to live passionately and to make my life worthwhile.
Yes there’s been hardship and I can definitely say that following this path has been no bed or roses. No easy journey. But it is a journey nevertheless and something I have raved about here on Inspired Camping for years.
In fact, I’m going to read you a bit of the Inspired Camping Mantra…
Be excited about the open road ahead but wander from it often. Don’t be afraid to get lost – you may find yourself. Share your dreams with passion to inspire others. Smell the campfire and respect nature. Pause. Switch off. reflect. For a time become truly happy.
Here’s the full version…
The next time I release a podcast episode it will be back to the usual content, I promise. I’ve got some really inspiring interviews coming up including one from a business owner who started from nothing and now has a multi-million luxury camping and glamping business.
