Sarah Lavender Smith is a bit of a renaissance woman and in this episode she talks about how that came about. We chat about her path away from her original journalism career plan and how she found herself a runner much to her own surprise. Then how running became a career of its own.
Sarah and her husband have also followed some not so traditional life and career moves including taking nearly a year off to travel the world with their two kids. I ask her to explain how you can go about doing that financially and whether it was really all it was cracked up to be. For anyone interested in a non traditional career path Sarah’s candor and insights will really be helpful.
