Found this in JLee’s instagram, I think it’s in Myanmar again…
It’s often in the in-between spaces of life that we grow the most. Last year, our own JLee negotiated some time off before leaving sunny Los Angeles for new work in by the canals of Amsterdam. Serendipitously, I took over her apartment, a beautiful one bedroom that had been handed down by the girls in our church fellowship. I watched JLee stuff all of her belongings into our hall closet, and cram a month’s worth of life supplies into a gigantic backpack. First stop was Nepal, then Myanmar with a final pitstop in Korea. Not bad at all, it’s amazing the things you can get away with a little scheming… ahem… planning. JLee plans. I just kind of just wing it. This is why we love working with each other!
Some amazing expeditions begin with a dream and inspiration. My journey began in jest. Three years into my job, I had managed to build a very successful business from scratch within a major mobile tech company and was knee-deep in starting up my second. It had been a transformational ride from boot-strap social entrepreneur to corporate manager jet-setting Asia and Europe in the name of product and profit.
