Show Notes: About Christina McEvoy

You know when you meet someone you instantly connect with and resonate so strongly with! They have the same mindset, work ethic and empowered approach to life, and you think, “Oh someone who gets me!”

No this is not a love story, but a new friendship with a fellow business woman, passionate adventure family traveler, and full-time mother.

Christina McEvoy has been a positive influence and mentor for my life recently, which was very much needed during this global crisis.

Her family of four are full-time travelers, outdoor adventure travel experts, content creators and bloggers.

They have been slow traveling through Central and South America since Jan 2019 and are currently in Chile, where they got “stuck” during the pandemic.

They have two boys and love to seek physical challenges and off-the-beaten-path places along their travels.

In addition to providing tips for adventure travel destinations, Christina also teaches people how to successfully get paid to travel using Instagram by working with brands and destinations.

I love Christina for her positive outlook, her commitment to purposeful living and work, and her thirst for seeking off the beaten path adventures, and “hard things.”

Yes. The power lies in the journey.
