Corporate to Camper: Riding into the Unknown with Laura Leaton, Type 2, 3 or 7

Jan 19, 2022

Have you ever thought, even just for a minute, what it would be like to live life on the road?

Back in 2020, I became obsessed with the idea. Like pretty much everyone, I was ready to shake things up after a year of feeling isolated and trapped during a pandemic.

I started dreaming of downsizing, selling my home, and buying an RV! I joined Facebook groups (they even have single mom RV living groups!) and read articles to prep and know what to expect.

I was ready to get out there and have nature be my son's education and my therapy.

For a lot of reasons, that obviously didn't happen for me, but for my guest today, it did!

A year ago, she sold (almost!) everything, bought an RV, and started her unconventional life on the road.

Selfishly I wanted to bring her on because I wanted to hear all about it :)

But regardless if you also have had the dream of RV life, you're going to get so much from this one because who hasn't had a pull to do something unconventional? To drop the shoulds, of who you should be, or what you should do, or how you should do something? I know that's something anyone listening to this podcast has felt.

And at the same time, you've probably also felt the fear of uncertainty and of the unknown to actually go through with your "crazy" idea. 

In this episode,  executive coach and leadership development trainer, Laura Leaton, shares all about what lead up to that decision, all the fears she faced as you made plans to go through with it, and what she's learned from a year of working and living in a camper van!

You'll also hear us talk about her top three Enneagram types - 2, 3 or 7 - and how after a year of intense growth and personal development, the stereotypical tendencies and common behaviors of the types aren't really showing up for her, so you'll hear what to focus on instead.

I can't wait for you to hear from Laura inside this interview.

After you've had a chance to listen, be sure and connect with her to follow along with her adventure and to let her know what you are taking away from this episode!
