Risk Blossoming / A story of taking the RISKS to align your Life with your Dreams

What happens when you take a risk to leave behind your home, your job, your possessions and take off in a 40 foot Motorcoach to “see the world?”

In this entertaining and candid presentation, Deborah shares, with her own authenticity and humor, what happened to her.

She’ll share:

  • what she gave up and let-go,
  • what she modified,
  • what she gained in the process, and
  • how “Risk Blossoming” has become a way of life for her and her husband, Tim.

“there came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful that the risk it took to blossom.”
- Anais Nin

Travel is Transformational

Allow Deborah to share with you how a girlfriend’s trip to witness the Wildebeest migration in the Maasi Mara in Kenya transformed her life, and why she now offers annual “Wisdom Quests” in partnership with Dr. J’Lien Liese to help change their traveler’s lives.

Travel in any form, whether you’re relaxing on a beach in Hawaii,  trekking for silverback gorillas in the Impenetrable Jungle in Uganda, experiencing the architectural ruins of Machu Picchu, or just taking a business trip to Chicago, can be meaningful. Most everyone will agree that ravel has the power to transform - no matter where you go and for how long

So how does that differ from transformational travel? When it comes to deliberate transformational travel, it’s not only about where you go and with whom, it’s also about tapping into the potential, for that trip, to impact you in a positive way and that you can use going forward in your daily life.

The process of transformational travel is about doing something when you travel that opens your mind in a way that resists closing back up again once you’re home and back into your daily routine. It’s one thing to push yourself beyond your comfort zone, but it’s another thing entirely to then use that experience to learn and grow as a person and apply what you’ve learned or how your worldview has shifted to your life going forward.
