What rules do you live your life by?
Are they your rules or someone else’s?
In today’s episode, we are going to talk about how to determine the rules you are living by right now and how to create your own rules for living a life that excites you and fills you with joy.
Today’s guest left a 20 year career as a corporate trainer to go in search of a life that filled her soul and sparked her creative passions.
She will share with us the emotions that came with this transition and the lessons she has learned along the way of living life by her own rules.
Today on the podcast, we are going to get into a topic that we haven’t covered too much yet, and that is careers! In today’s episode, I am interviewing Camille Attell from More Than A Wheelin’.
For 20 years, Camille and her husband Bryce both had successful careers in the corporate world. Camille worked as a corporate trainer and Bryce worked as a financial planning analyst.
Until, they decided to make a radical life change, which involved selling their home, downsizing their possessions, and leaving their very stable careers. They wanted to live a life on purpose that they could be excited about, so they jumped head first into full-time RVing and have been traveling for the past two years.
Now, Camille runs her own business and teaches her program Remote Work School, which helps others transition to a life of travel and working remotely.
Live by your own rules
There are two main topics from this interview that I found really interesting…
The first is the idea of living by your own rules. This came up from a line that Camille wrote on the about page for More Than A Wheelin'. She said:
“After 20 years, it was time to create new rules and let my inner unicorn fly free. Now, I help others do the same."
This sparked a really fascinating conversation because we are all living by some set of rules, whether that’s our own rules or rules from society, our families, our religions, etc.
Camille talks about the perspective that she grew up with and how this played out in her life, including the inner struggle of feeling successful and important in her career, yet knowing that she was also denying an important part of herself by not following her creative passions.
The emotions of transitions
The other main topic that I found interesting in this interview was how she described the emotional transition of giving up her career to live the full-time RV life. There is never a perfect time to make a big life change and she specifically mentions the fears and struggles that you overcome during this process.
She talks about the balance of “losing your identity” on the way to becoming who you want to be and also provides inspiration for going after a life and career that fills your heart with joy.
In today's episode, we talk about:
How the rules and ideals we grow up with have an effect on our mindset as adults
The balance between the practical and free spirit mindset
The emotions involved in transitioning your lifestyle
Baby steps you can take towards your dream life
How to leverage your past experience in whatever life and career you want to have
How to make fun a priority in your life
