I spent 30 minutes trying to figure out how my makeup even worked and ended up covered in powder about 5 minutes ago! Then I remembered wearing my trusty old purple hooded windbreaker in Sydney as I passed all the night clubs this summer. This jacket defines this year and Purple Hood Adventures. It only seemed appropriate that it would make the cut for NYE! Be you, friends! Happy New year to all of you!!! #purplehoodadventures #notfancy #nye2017 #beyourself

[09/12/19]   Working on reconstructing my website and it prompted me to think about what I'm really about. Today, I want to share what Purple Hood Adventures is truly about. Happy Thursday!

"People ask me..."What is your niche"?

And well...that's a good question.

My niche is not a thing, but rather a drive cultivated from of my deepest passions, which is why I'm NOT one of those billion dollar travel sites doing everything far and beyond what I could ever afford to do or invent. I single-handedly created every square inch of everything Purple Hood Adventures ever has been and is now (even with having zero technical skills, background in marketing or funds to pay someone who does)! I created Purple Hood Adventures because I wanted to. Not to become rich, but for the life I want for myself and for you.

My niche is about connecting everyone out there with the same passions and goals in a world that can be rough on creatives and wanderlusters. It's about being a personal part of a worldwide organization of fellow travel-lovers and entrepreneurs and watching bonds form all over the world. It's about regular people out there with amazing and innovative ideas with an amazing drive whom are too afraid to take the plunge and try something new because of the fear of failure. But mostly, it's about watching all of this unfold because of something I took the plunge on DESPITE being afraid of failure.

So as you read my blogs and listen to my podcasts, hear how travel has changed me and about the life lessons it has taught me from every struggle, every ridiculous mishap and every serendipitous moment. The best way to live life is to begin it.

So to answer everyone's question, my niche is to not HAVE a niche but to BE a niche."
