Ever feel like it’s time to move on? Lisa Gerber felt the pull – the proverbial mountains were calling her. She took a big leap and moved to a small mountain town in Idaho where she started her business and went from leading marketing at a ski resort to making the ski resort her first client.

Timing is everything, so they say – but Gerber shares that it’s not ever “right” timing either –

“Timing will never be right, but you know when you can’t stay on your current path. It’s scary, but when staying on the same path isn’t a viable solution – you have no choice.”

In this episode, Lisa shares more on…

  • Resilience for when business slows – and what to do with your time
  • How to break into speaking engagements
  • Staying connected, engaged and inspired when you actually live on a mountain
