Jolene Brink is an independent copywriter for fiery, big-personality entrepreneurs. She is living the life of her dreams, making a living doing things she loves, has the freedom to take extended trips with her fiancée, and is looking to go to New Zealand this weekend. I mean… why not, right?
Is there something priviledged about Jolene and what she is doing? Are her parents loaded? Is she a trust fund baby? Is she just freakishly gifted?
No – she is just awesome. She takes the fact that her life is a CHOICE and she is asking the world for what she wants and then doing something about it. What’s awesome is that everything she is doing is replicatable. You can do this, too!
On this call, Jolene shares some stories about the places she’s been, how she organized a cross country bike ride, took off to India by herself to teach, and then came home to launch her own copy writing business (which is flourishing, by the way!).
Give it a listen, learn from her, be inspired, and then write your big (scary?) dream in the comments section. To get more understanding about this call to action, give the short, sweet, and awesome podcast a listen!
More Awesome Background on Jolene Brink
I applied for a Fulbright to teach in Thailand my senior year of college, but wasn’t accepted. I found out about the opportunity to teach in India 3 days later. It was a volunteer position that didn’t pay but gave room & board. So going into the Trek, I knew I was going to leave for India almost immediately after the bike tour was over.
I’ve also been with my fiance for 4+ years, and I went to India to prove that I could travel alone … and give him time to adjust to his new job at the Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center. We wanted our own adventures to be sure we were ready to stay together. I would have stayed overseas longer, but I missed him too much.
He’s finishing his second year at the ELC (which is why we’re living in Finland, MN … seriously, Googlemap it), which is why I’m living in the middle of nowhere … which also happens to be right next to Lake Superior.
John was a major supporter of everything I did that year, and continues to be, and is a huge reason why I was sucessful. He never questioned me or held me back … which is why getting married at 24 is just another part of the adventure.
