In my third year of living location independent. Splitting my time between running business as usual, a few different personal projects, client projects and while I struggle to finish my book, Integrate. Excited to get back have started into disciplined writing mode this month with new routines and a mastermind group for accountability. Exploring Lisbon and surrounding area in Portugal. Excited to book more speaking gigs in Lisbon. Cooking up a storm like a proper European grandma for my three housemates. Still unclear where I'll be living post October, have tickets to SE Asia but considering staying in Europe or heading to South America. Will be headed to Eastern Europe for September and Thailand in October.
