Infinite happiness that comes from doing something that is so core to your belief systems and makes your toes tingle when you can change people’s lives.

Tuesday night we held the 3rd annual Meet Plan Go! event across the country with the sole goal of getting more people to take a break and travel. This year it was a personal journey for me to take as my business partner and friend Michaela took a break from the project this year. I learned that working solo on a project like this wasn’t nearly as fulfilling to me. I always knew that it was going to be a lot of work to pull it off this year, but I pushed forward because I knew how wildly fulfilling it would be the night of the event as I have an opportunity to change people’s lives – and that’s a drug I can’t get enough of.

There is no better feeling than looking out among a sea of people who are looking to make a change in their life – knowing that you have an answer for them. There’s nothing better than realizing that your good friends would do anything for you when you need a hand. There no better emotion than the success you feel when you work together as a team towards a common goal.

All of these things happened last night for me. It was one of those perfect nights which makes you believe in the world and your place in it.

We Met, Planned, and Went – and here’s what some people had to say about it.

 

 

Year 3 – it’s a wrap! Now….back to traveling!
