Three Months of Brave-ish: Dec News 2023


Dec News 2023 with Lisa Niver & We Said Go Travel:

Thankful for your support of my memoir, BRAVE-ish!

My memoir has been out for three months now and has won several awards! Thank you for buying my book, showing up at my events, watching my videos and listening to my podcast which won an award for Diversity in TV/Streaming.

While it has been an amazing year for me as a writer with incredible press for my book from Bloomberg, NPR, Conde Nast Traveler, Travel and Leisure and many TV segments, I have been praying every day since Oct 7 for the hostages to come home safely. As 2023 comes to a close, I hope you hug your loved ones closely and have meaningful time with family and friends.

Travel influencer and writer, Lisa Niver, has lived on the road for much of her life, from working cruise ships to hostel-hopping in Asian. But it was her 50th trip around the Sun that made her decide to make a “50 in 50” bucket list to step outside her comfort zone and try new things on her own after her divorce. 

I call it her “Now or Niver” moment.
