“We want other people feel unstuck when it comes to seeing the world.”

—  Garrett Oler

If you have chronic wanderlust or just want to experience a change of scenery after being locked down for the past couple of years, you’ll want to check out this episode!

My guest, Garrett Oler, is the co-founder of Connected Family Travel, a business that is dedicated to helping families experience the dream vacations they never thought they could afford, through ‘travel hacking’ with travel points and smart action plans!

While Garrett identifies as introverted, he enjoys doing Lives and showing up in front of his audience. In this conversation, we talk about how to avoid being pigeonholed by labels and expectations, the state of the travel industry post-lockdowns, and why it really does take a village, whether we’re talking about raising a family, starting a business, or even doing your marketing!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • Why you shouldn’t feel boxed in by your introvert label — and how to work in ways that work for YOU
  • The importance of balancing respect for your capacity with the need to take opportunities as they come  
  • How to plan your work around your natural energy levels and claim the breaks you need
