S1 Episode 7 - Top Ten Takeaways from Intergenerational Travel

Show Notes

I capped off 2022 with a two week family vacation - spending Christmas in Europe! During this experience, with a group that spanned ages 9 to 67, so many thoughts ran through my head. So this solo episode is a bit different, as I provided my top ten takeaways I've learned through intergenerational travel. 

Reflecting back on this trip reminds me of the song "Love Train" by The O'Jays. You can listen on the show's spotify playlist.

S1 Episode 2 - Backyard Magic

On Episode 2 I am joined by the lovely Ashley Lawson, who serves as the Vice President of Business Partnerships at Achieve Incentives & Meetings, a global meetings and travel incentive planning firm based in the Midwest. As the first of the third-generation at the family-owned company, a passion for building meaningful travel experiences is in her blood. Prior to joining the firm, Ashley spent a decade in Washington, DC focused on ending veteran homelessness in the Nation's Capital. There, she led Miriam’s Kitchen’s fundraising events and strategic partnerships with fortune 100 companies. Most recently, Ashley has become the meetings industry’s “Safe Travel Ambassador.” She has been living in a new country each month and experiencing first-hand how the world is responding to the pandemic and preparing for the return of travel and events. Engaging in more than 100 site visits in South and Central America, the Caribbean and Africa, Ashley gains critical insights and shares them with meetings professionals worldwide. With so many lessons learned as a Safe Travel Ambassador, she was eager to equip the events industry with the right tools for our safe return. She started a blog highlighting how event planners could navigate ever-changing international rules, shared the best practices she had experience in safety protocols, and provided step-by-step guidance to prepare event planners on how to lead safe events. Join our discussion as we dissect her safe travel ambassador experience while creating some "Backyard Magic" along the way.

S2: Episode 7 Celebrating Small Wins with Marisa Ciesluk

This week, I am joined by Marisa Wheeling Cielsuk, a Transformative Leadership and Executive coach for women. As a lover of the outdoors, Marisa is no stranger to challenges. She faced her profound fear of heights and submitted to Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, which eventually helped her to find joy and purpose in her life. As we dived deeper into the conversation, Marisa shared her journey on climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and how it helped her create a new perspective and purpose in life.  In this episode, Marisa emphasizes the value and learnings you can get in embracing your journey and how your successes or failures in life don’t define you. She also gave insights about climbing our regular summits and the value of being content in the valley. In this reflective episode, listeners will understand why we need to celebrate the small wins in our lives every day.
