On our very first day w/ Tony Robbins….We broke through a piece of wood with our bare hands….It was a powerful moment!!⁣

We’re Back From Our 4 Day DIGITAL DETOX!! ⁣
We got to totally disconnect from all the things & fully immerse ourselves in the UPW experience and it felt AH-mazing!! ⁣

Unleash The Power Within was very powerful ….but our experience was very different then what we had expected…& we didn’t walk away feeling…the way we thought we would once it was all over!!⁣

That being said...⁣
We did take away some super valuable and powerful lessons that we wanted to share with you so that's what this weeks podcast episode is all about! ⁣

We chat about our overall experience & thoughts + share our 5 biggest takeaways!!⁣

We’re Going Off The Grid For The Next 4 Days!!! ⁣

We are attending the Tony Robbins Conference: Unleash The Power Within and it kicks off tomorrow!! ⁣

This is something we’ve wanted to do for some time now….we actually bought tickets last year, but then ended up returning them bc with the cost of travel and hotel and food etc….it just felt like too much at the time!⁣

But due to Covid19….they are hosting the conference virtually this year!! ⁣

Which means we get to enjoy this 4 day event from the comfort of our cozy condo….in our JAMMIES at a fraction of the cost!! ⁣

WOOHOO!!! #Winning!!! ⁣

We are really really excited about it….⁣

And we want to totally disconnect from all outside noise & distractions…so we can truly show up…BE PRESENT and give all of our time, attention and focus on our UPW experience!!!

So we plan to turn our phones off completely…⁣

No SOCIAL MEDIA FOR 4 WHOLE DAYS!! No IG Story for 4 days…..⁣
OMG….We’ve never done this before…..I’m kind of nervous….Will we survive????…stay tuned!! lol⁣

So if you follow along with us on IG story...and you don’t hear from us for awhile…or if we don’t get back to you until next week…now you know we’re alive & well and we haven’t ghosted you….LOL!!!⁣

Ok that’s all for now….We will chat next week!! ⁣

Is anyone else doing UPW?

Our BUDGET For ONE YEAR OF TRAVEL & How We Saved For It!!⁣
We get asked all the time about this….⁣

So in this weeks episode on The Freedom In Scrubs Podcast we are going to share exactly what our budget is for our year long trip..and the steps we took to save for it!! ⁣

This episode is part 3 of a Budget Travel Series we created on the podcast!⁣

If you haven’t listened to part 1 or 2 yet…definitely listen to those first ….because the episodes build on each other!! ⁣
You can listen to episode 54 with the link in our bio!!!⁣

Traveling is a lot more affordable than people think….⁣
And we hope after listening to this Travel Budget series you now have a sense of what kind of traveler you may be, and what type of budget you’ll need for your own trip!!⁣

Longer periods of travel are totally doable for most of us…..if it’s really something we want to do!! (especially for us healthcare travelers)⁣

it’s just about getting clear on what your goals are, making a game plan… and then taking the steps…DOING THE WORK…and making the choices that help support that goal!⁣

Again we understand that none of us are traveling anywhere right now, but this is the perfect time to dream about it....get excited and explore places you want to go....get a plan....create a budget...pay down debts....start saving...minimize your things...simplify your life....⁣

This is a great time to get started!! ⁣

Us taking a year off to travel the world...didn't just happen over night…⁣
It took a BIG DREAM & a PLAN and lots of Thought…Intention...HARD WORK...Motivation & Desire!! ⁣

You can listen to The Freedom In Scrubs Podcast on any platform:)⁣

We would love and so appreciate a review if your enjoying the podcast! Make sure it share it out with your travel friends!! ⁣

How much did we save for our year long trip around the world? 🌎✈️❤️⁣
(aka...our Adult Gap Year 😝)

We get asked all the time about the Money & budgeting aspect of our trip ...⁣
How much money does a trip like this cost?⁣
How do you set a daily budget?⁣
How have we saved for this trip? ⁣

So we Decided to do an entire travel budget series on our podcast where we are gonna walk you through step by step..⁣
how we planned, budgeted and prepped for (financially) our Adult Gap Year!! ⁣

Side note: we’re not talking about budgeting for a 2 week vacation in Hawaii...This series focuses on long term travel ...(3 months ...6 months ....a year etc) ⁣

Part one is about figuring what type of traveler you are ...⁣
That way you can get a sense of what your budget will look like and how you can save from There !! ⁣

You can listen to part one on the Freedom In Scrubs Podcast right now...⁣
Where ever you listen to pods :)⁣
(Link in bio)

Listen I know we can’t travel right now...but if you’ve ever thought about taking some time off to travel...whether it be a month or a year....now is the time to start planning, prepping & dreaming!!⁣

Use this “PAUSE”...or this down time...to get a game plan and then start slowly taking steps towards your next adventure:)!!! ⁣

When traveling becomes⁣
A thing again...have you thought about taking some Time off to travel for a little bit? where would you want to go first?⁣
