Michelle Fetsch: Taking the shortest route
November 12, 2014 | Podcast
In January 2014, Michelle Fetsch was feeling fed up and decided she needed a change. Two weeks later, she’d quit her job, packed up her apartment, and was on a plane to Bali. In this episode, we talk about how she made it happen so quickly, the rewards of taking big risks, and more.

Most Memorable Location-Independent Experiences
Realizing that the world and our lives can be so much more than we are taught and every new pathway or decision leads to a new pathway or decision. The most memorable experience is opening up to the grandness that life has to offer and realizing that it just keeps getting better. The more I know, the more I know I don’t know.
Biggest Surprise along the Way
It can be really challenging to not have a home base and to live from a suitcase, but I believe that the bigger the risks you take, the greater the reward. Every time I’ve quit the status quo and gone down another path, I’ve ended up making more money, finding more clarity and confidence, and learning to be with myself on a new level.
