Theme: Where did you find the spark to follow your dreams?
Seth Godin says “The self starter creates a spark, turning nothing, or what certainly appears to everyone else as nothing, into something. The self starter doesn’t see it that way. That ‘nothingness’ was actually an opportunity, a chance to make a connection, to do something a little better than the status quo, to get things moving.”
When you look at a blank page which you turn into magic with your words, where did that begin for you? What place began your love of travel? Or your love of writing? What place are you most grateful for? Is there one location that changed your life?
The We Said Go Travel community is waiting to hear your tale about a place that makes you be ready to lead the way.
