Hi, I’m Heather Markel. I provide midlifers with the tools, resources and confidence to quit your job to travel the world, (or pursue your passion) so you can change your present without ruining your future.

About Heather

After more than 25 years working in corporate, I quit my job to pursue my passion of traveling the world and meeting great people. Since then I’ve spent two years traveling around the globe and meeting countless others who, over the age of 40, walked away from stability to travel full time. I’ve come to realize how important it is to live a fulfilled life, and that it can be done without ruining your future, as long as you go about it with intentional steps.

My goal is to inspire people in their 40’s and 50’s who aren’t ready to retire, but are ready to do something more fulfilling than work for a paycheck, to have the resources and belief that you’re not too old to radically change your life. You’re not crazy for wanting to do something different, like quit and travel the world, and, your life may just be better if you do it.
