The Offbeat Life - Be Free. Work From Anywhere

Feb 24, 2020

In this week’s episode, I speak with Alana who is a Chicago based attorney turned travel writer and founder of Course Charted, a source for slow and sustainable travel. 

As a child, Alana fled Kyiv after the Chernobyl disaster to eventually move to the United States. She learned to be entrepreneurial when she left her homeland with just a handful of suitcase and eventually became a lawyer to follow the American dream. 

However, this changed when she realized that the typical American Dream was not for her and left to become a travel writer and remote entrepreneur. 

Listen on to find out how Alana left the American dream to pursue her personal freedom.

Hey Offbeat Family, I really your listening to this episode. I would love to hear more from you and what you think of the podcast.
