I’m in Arizona for now. We arrived in the middle of May (from Italy) and we’re excited to be here! It’s great to see family, and it’s great to have so much sunshine. And it’s great to have access to so many awesome supplements and products and easy online ordering. :)
Moving My Ass! Walking or Swimming?
When we first arrived, I got into a great routine of walking every morning with earbuds and listening to my Coffee Self-Talk scripts I recorded on MP3.
But it quickly became too hot in the desert to do that, so I switched to walking in the evening, once the sun is down, and the temperature drops to a mere 100 degrees F.
And so for the morning, I jumped into my favorite summer exercise activity, which is swimming. But when I switched to swimming, I was not able to listen to my Coffee Self-Talk because I was in the pool.
But I got to thinking…
I don’t usually swim with my head under the water, and I wondered if I could find some water proof earbuds that were wireless.
Seek and ya find.
I found this amazing pair of wireless earbuds that are water resistant. *Note they are not waterproof for going underwater, but they’re water resistant so if I keep my head above the water and there’s a little splash here and there, no big deal.
And? They do a great job. Now I’m swimming every morning and getting my second daily does of Coffee Self-Talk (first dose is with my coffee before my swim!). Where there’s a will there’s a way.
As usual, I am writing every day. I absolutely love being a writer. Currently, I’m working on my non-fiction projects with the Coffee Self-Talk family but there are some fiction stories percolating in the back of my head.
I have four books coming this summer in the Coffee Self-Talk family: The Coffee Self-Talk Daily Reader, The Coffee Self-Talk Guided Journal (the current journal is blank), Pillow Self-Talk (for your evening routine), and…
Coffee Self-Talk for Teen Girls. (Boys to follow.) I’ve been getting requests for taking my book Coffee Self-Talk and making it for kids. I will have a bigger announcement for this closer to the publishing date.
Interviews About Coffee Self-Talk
I have done a number of interviews about Coffee Self-Talk and one of them is available to listen to now. I had a most lovely conversation with the host, Margaux Joy, of Live Your Music radio. You can listen here.
I also got my hands on some new collagen that I was excited to try by CB. Dr. Cate convinced me a collagen supplement was worth it… for skin, joints, etc. The fascinating thing about this collagen is it comes from five different sources and the people who use it, love it. It’s the only collagen so far that Dr. Cate endorses and I am a fan of Dr. Cate. Ergo, I bought the collagen.
The unflavored taste like most other collagen powders which is not awesome but easily mixes with other things. The chocolate is absolutely delicious though.
When I bought the collagen, the company kindly sent me samples of their vanilla and their strawberry-lemonade flavor, and both of those were good too. So I am a fan of their products, and I am subscribing and saving on a monthly basis with them.
So that’s it. I’m drinking a new collagen, I’m writing books like crazy and loving every single second of it. I’m in Arizona for now. That’s my update!
I’m sending love and energy to you reading this, imagining you’re having an awesome summer, too.
OH!~ Check out my romance novels if you want extra heat for your summer. :) They’re a great pool read to let your mind escape to some sexy romance. I write them under my pen name, Brisa Starr.
The Future of Housesitting
When my family first sold it all to travel the world, we primarily traveled by doing housesits for people. My family housesat for over a year in places around the United States, UK, Denmark, and France.
I’ve written about it in numerous places on the blog and shared how it’s a fantastic way to travel for many reasons: save money (especially for international travel), see amazing places you might not see with a traditional travel plan, meet new people, make friends, be with animals (especially great for traveling alone or if you have kids).
Today, I sat thinking about how housesitting is going to become extremely popular in the near future, which is great!
Because during the pandemic many people adopted animals.
So many pets have been adopted during the pandemic that shelters are running out
“They’re going like hot cakes,” said one operator of an animal shelter in Maryland
So there are a lot of new pet owners out there, and as traveling opens up, everybody is going to want to travel, and these pet owners are going to need housesitters! (Kennels will be overbooked, too.)
But getting the best housesit takes a strategy.
I share in my book, How to Win at Housesitting, how you can score some of the best housesits and travel the world doing it… and why it’s such an incredible opportunity.
Housesitting can change your life!
For starters, it’s fun. And beautiful… my family now has life-long friends all over the world, just because we watched people’s homes and pets. I had never known that such an incredible way to travel existed, until I tried it myself. :) Housesitting is a secret world that few people know about.
Best of all…
If you’d love to travel more but thought it costs too much, then housesitting is for you! You can save money and travel to places you might not have considered before due to the cost. Housesitters usually pay for their own travel, but once you’re there, it typically means staying in free accommodations.
You can even eliminate your monthly rent or mortgage by traveling full-time, rent-free! Imagine paying off debt while you travel. Crazy? It’s possible!
I wrote this book to give you step-by-step instructions and teach you everything you need to know about housesitting, including how to score the best houses against competing applicants.
You’re going to discover…
- HOW to get the BEST housesits
- How to build your profile and reputation if you’re just beginning
- 12 reasons WHY you should be housesitting (whether you’re single, married, have a family, or a senior citizen)
- HOW to find housesits all over the world: United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Latin America, South Africa, and more!
- Real-life housesitting stories that teach and entertain
- Learn how to line up back-to-back housesits to travel the world full-time!
How to Win at Housesitting is packed with all the practical tips for housesitting you need to know, including checklists! It shows you how to make your housesitting experience the best ever, and win the housesits of your choice.
Pack your bags and get ready for an unforgettable travel experience.
