// Meet Stephanie Linder of Lost In Linderland //
It's Been 1 Year Since I Changed My Life
I am a born and raised Midwestern girl. I grew up in Chicago and spent my 32 years of life there.
My adult career was spent in Medical Sales, specifically in fertility, which is why I choose to freeze my eggs 2 years ago. But that's a story for another blog post.
Deep in my gut, I ALWAYS knew I wanted to live abroad. I compare it to how some women know they want to be mothers. They just know. I had that same feeling in my gut, but it was desiring a different culture, language, people and place.
In April 2017, I officially quit my corporate job, sold most of my things, and began a new adventure. I moved to to Medellin, Colombia with plans to travel long term volunteering, networking and building some outline of a business. Welp, 1 year later and I've spent 11 of those months in Medellin. The other month was Mexico City (which I plan to head to soon and it's amazing).
I couldn't be happier with my decision and new life path.
I've been forced to learn a new language, have fallen in love with salsa dancing and met a whole slew of people who have inspired me more than you can imagine. I'm starting to *really* build a freelance business and am *really* enjoying being creative.
If you'd like to learn more about Medellin, traveling solo or how I make money while working traveling - please subscribe to my newsletter or follow along on Facebook OR Instagram. I will share everything I've experienced in hopes of one day inspiring you to do the same.
