Ep 019 // Your Life's Purpose, Simplicity & World Travels with a Family (Tsh Oxenreider, Courage)

We've all heard about "the dream" of a nomadic lifestyle, working anywhere in the world with an internet connection from the comfort of our laptops. 

But what about those of us with, you know, families and stuff?

 

Tsh is a writer, podcaster and a coach focused on the angle of living simply and unconventionally. She's been running a blog for 9 years called The Art of Simple, hosts a podcast called The Simple Show, and is the author of a book coming out this month, At Home in the World. 

In this week's Courage story, Tsh tells us all about how she and her husband found themselves in Turkey, a completely foreign country, and how her anxiety and discomfort led her to writing as a creative outlet.

From this scary experience, her blog was born -- and now she's been at it for nearly a decade. 

Tsh and her husband spent five years devising a plan to save up enough cash to take their whole family on the road -- including their three young children.

What happened over that year is truly inspiring, and might have you rethinking what you'd like your life to look like. 

In this episode you'll hear:

  • The fears Tsh faced when she decided to take both her family and her business on the road 
  • What it means to live simply according to your own unique life's purpose (and each of us may have our own definition of "simplicity")
  • A new, refreshing spin on what it takes to be "an expert"
  • How Tsh has stayed engaged in her area of expertise for close to 10 years, despite some lackluster moments

Enjoy this episode, and then join us in Episode 20 where Tsh shares the exact steps she took to take her business & family on the road for a year!
