Today’s Topic

I'm excited to introduce this week's guest, Allison Boyle. I first discovered her on Instagram, where she posts all you need to know to have outdoor adventures. Allison posts about backcountry hygiene, solo hiking for women, and more.

As you know, I tend to over plan my life, which sometimes leads to overwhelm and frustration. I absolutely love this concept of planning life around themes that last for a season, and then measuring success based on how my experiences matched up with that theme. I hope you find this episode interesting and inspiring!
