My guest today, Erin Carey, is, as she explains, your average wife, mother to three young boys, overworked, stressed and tied, who lives in suburbia in South Australia, nothing special.
And Erin describes herself like this so when you listen to her story, you realise that you can do it too, that you can “get out there and do whatever your dream may be.”
One of the biggest takeaways from this episode is the power in making the decision. Erin and her husband made the decision that they wanted to take their boys and sail around the world for a few years. They didn’t know how they were going to make it happen, but they made the decision.
Erin and I go quite deep on a number of topics—the confidence in finding other people that have already achieved what you’re hoping to do, the importance of having a common goal, how ideas change and evolve over time, learning new skills along the way, and how time allows you to discover more qualities about your kids and loved ones.
Erin also talks about how she saved to make this adventure a reality, because when she made the decision Erin had eight grand of credit card debt and no savings. I know you will love some of the things that Erin did to save money. What I really love about what Erin did is that she made changes to her daily life so her daily life could change.
This is an episode that will inspire you to make the decision in your life, to create change, and dare to dream big.
I hope you enjoy x
