When Nicole Dreon had a work contract that took her to France and left her journey open-ended, she decided to follow her heart and go to Africa on a mission to write about female athletes. The way things fell into place once she got there is unbelievable, yet it’s just one of the many examples she shares in this episode about how she has leveraged her passion for travel to find her mission in life. Her experience and passion for travel and inspiring other women to travel has led her to start a company called She Guides, which connects women travelers with local women guides, a scenario where everybody wins. Listen to this episode to hear about Nicole’s journey and mission going forward.
