A couple months ago, we told you the best way to successfully make it out of your comfort zone is with a slow-and-steady approach.

Annnd because we love to contradict ourselves (but not really, because didn’t someone say once that the best way to understand life is through paradox? 🙃), now we’re going to tell you the exact opposite … and somehow, both are still true!

In this month’s Side Chat, we’re making a case for why sometimes the best way to get unstuck is by giving yourself permission to do something big and crazy. 

Listen in as we get into…

  1. Love this episode! I’m always down for dreaming up crazy life choices. Here’s my favorite one-

    Learn to renovate houses and become a house flipper for old Victorian mansions, live in one myself, and also make friends with all the ghosts I meet and have them tell me their stories which I then turn into very deep and provoking screenplays and paintings.

    1. This is fantastic! 😂 I want to watch the Netflix special they make about your life after you do this! Haha. Love it!

    2. Making friends with ghosts in Victorian mansions? Can I come? I’ll film and produce the Netflix show 😉

  2. What I WANT to do is pack whatever fits in my car, have some friends pack/store my bed (I can live without the rest of my stuff) and drive to Nevada. I have some friends I met online there and….just figure it out from there. But I’ve experienced financial fallout from doing things like that in the past, so…

    What I will probably actually do: sign a lease for another year, since the new rent amount isn’t as much as I anticipated. (Cut costs where I can, save money, and break the lease later if necessary.) Book a hotel room/AirBnb out of town for my birthday weekend so I can watch a conference virtually that I’m die hard excited about. Take tons of notes and see where it leads. Most importantly, don’t let myself get too comfortable and stagnate again!
