Recently, I returned from the Ultimate Travel Writer's Workshop in Austin, TX, hosted by Great Escape Publishing. I team up with Great Escape Publishing to host their podcast, Great Escape Radio.
While I was at the Workshop, something big happened. The 20th anniversary of the day I moved away from my hometown of Peoria, IL was while I was in Austin.
On the day of the anniversary, I posted on Facebook to commemorate the special day. The post got some wonderful responses from people;
"I Love This"
"What a great story"
"You're amazing!! You carve out the life you wanted to live...proud of you!!"
There were many comments like this, all cheering me on for such a bold move. And someone sent me a private message asking me why I left everything I knew and set out with no money and no job prospects.
In this episode of The Jody Maberry Show, I examine why my big move still gets so much fanfare 20 years later. Why do people congratulate me? Why do people ask me why I did it?
We will discuss that and more on this episode.
