"Travel opens you up to new ways of living, new ways of the world. It allows you to see that at our core, we’re all the same." - Brittany Pierce
In this episode, Audrey sits down with creator of Rhythm Abroad, Brittany Pierce, about having a business that’s an extension of your personality. Brittany goes on to talk about how she made her own path despite many obstacles.
“I thought, ‘gosh is there really no space for me?’ I know there are other people my age that are traveling and want to explore... why do we have no space?”
Even though Brittany travels the world, she talks about how fear is the most foreign word of all to her.
“We can be fearful of a lot of things, I think the moment you allow fear to creep into your life it prevents you from moving forward. I’m going to live my life as if there is going to be another tomorrow.”
Audrey talks about her travels and seeking a community that encourages diversity + inclusion.
"The moment you allow fear to creep into your life, it prevents you from moving forward." - Brittany Pierce
