I’m An Adventure Junkie, Are You?

Adventures of Dubai
I’ve experienced imposter syndrome and so has pretty much every Mompreneur going after what she wants.
Written by Susan Vernicek

I’ve always been an adrenaline and an adventure junkie. My high school besties and I worked at the same butcher shop (slicing roast beef) to save for the adventure of a lifetime: a 15-day backpacking trip across the UK.

Being a Mom now, I don’t why or how our parents let us go, but we had such an adventure and I’m so grateful they did.

Four years later, I wanted that adrenaline and adventure again so I moved to London for the summer where I freelanced as a Graphic Designer from a bunk bed in a hostel to landing a fun bartending job at a club with free room and board above it.

I had adventures and adrenaline almost every night as I worked and traveled to France, Dubai, and South Africa, all in one summer.

I took a risk with my life by not getting a job right away, charging my travels away, and possibly meeting the wrong strangers. 

We take risks quite often, but I don’t think we realize how often.

We take risks… 

Buying homes
Leaving careers or switching careers
Getting married
Having kids
Starting a side hustle
Starting a business
Writing a book
Taking a loan
Having surgery
Filing bankruptcy

We take risks in believing in ourselves and trusting ourselves when it comes to taking action for the life we want. Right?

Bankruptcy was a risk I took to explore the world to then discover I wanted a life of freedom and flexibility. I had surgery and I happened to have complications, which was a small risk. But, it was a risk I chose for my body.

Investing in coaches and teams was a risk that challenged me to uplevel my success threshold. 

I take risks for MY adventurous life, and that includes all things as a woman, mother, and business owner. 

From risks, I’ve gained deeper belief, confidence, self-respect, self-love, new skills, weight loss, mental and physical strength—and what just like a preach, a thriving MomLife + BizLife. 

My husband, my kids, friends, or family will never be responsible for my happiness, success, and adventure. I accept full responsibility as it’s my life’s adventure. 

Risks can be scary and adventurous. You don’t always lose when you take a risk. You can lean into the adventure.

What are the risks that you’ve taken? What are some you want to take, but holding back?

Make a list of all the risks you’ve come out stronger from and make your decisions from that place of self-trust, power, and strength.

What if…taking a risk on coaching with me could pay off on the greatest adventure of your life?
