Welcome, All Who Wander! I’m Anne, founder of Hip Travel Mama + Exec PR coach and if you are new here, I help you explore the world with your people + be more intentional with your time to create space for the work and shared adventures that bring you joy.
I’m excited to share my latest adventure launching May 11 on Apple Podcasts + Spotify. Aptly called the All Who Wander Podcast, I tap my personal and professional network to bring you real stories about how the path to success in work and life is never a direct flight. ✈️
My own journey is a bit of an intentional, wandering path. I left a full-time corporate agency + tech startup career nearly 20 years ago to launch my own freelance PR + marketing business when I was pregnant with our first daughter. When our second daughter was born, I launched this blog, Hip Travel Mama and it brought some incredible opportunities for my career and travel adventures for our family. This entrepreneurial path, while not easy, gave me the flexibility to be the mom + professional I wanted to be. It was hard to leave the known path for one less certain and there were plenty of moments when things did not go as planned. But I kept at it, and it led to amazing work with great people, being more present as a parent, and raising a family traveling the world and sharing our travel adventures. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
My husband and I (who I met at 17) now have two teenage daughters – one who has left the nest and the other not far behind. In this season of transition, I’m reflecting on what I’ve learned along the way and sharing the stories of others who have taken the path less traveled to pursue the work + life they are passionate about and how they made it all work. We remind our college student about this all the time – we all have our own unique path and where you start, isn’t where you have to finish. We need to give ourselves more permission to Wander and find our own way.
