99 - Beth MacMillan

Beth MacMillan wants you to prioritize travel.

In 2011, Beth and her husband, Mark, decided to use their saved up money and take a 6 month honeymoon around the world.

You don’t have to save $20,000 and buy round-the-world tickets like Beth did, but if you’re interested in travel at all, you can pick up a lot of tips by listening to Beth’s story.

To be able to travel, you need 2 things, time and money.

Maybe you have the time, but not the money, so you feel like you can’t afford to go anywhere.

Maybe you have the money, but not the time, so you can just fly somewhere for a weekend or a week and it doesn’t seem worth the effort.

There will always be barriers to travel, and if you have disposable income, there are a million things you can spend your money on instead of travelling.

However, if you have the desire to travel, there are ways to make it a priority in your life.

Every time you have extra money, you make a choice to use that money for something that is important to you. It doesn’t have to be a lot of money, as Beth and I discuss in the episode.

For Beth, travel was always top of the list. Maybe you’re the same. Maybe you don’t even realize it yet because you haven’t been anywhere.

Personally I believe every dollar spent on travelling is totally worth it. The “return on investment” of travel isn’t dollars but it’s a higher quality of life.

But that’s just me. And Beth, of course.

P.S. If you want to ask Beth any questions about travel or concussions, you can email her here.
