Evita Robinson launched Nomadness Travel Tribe on Facebook when she was on unemployment and looking for a way to connect with other world travelers who were having some of the same challenges that she was at that time in her life — wanting a space to share their experiences and longing to travel to even more far-reaching places. The New York native had no idea that this small group that began with about 100 people would grow to the community it is today, five years later, with 15,000+ people and nearly 30 international trips under its belt.
Much like many of her extravagant trips organized for her tribe, Evita’s entrepreneurial journey has been sometimes complicated. She’s clear, in fact, that entrepreneurship can make you feel kinda crazy (I relate!) and she is candid about the important role therapy played throughout her life. On this episode, Evita opens up about how she built her mega brand, how she got over being a people pleaser, why she chooses to use her platform to discuss mental health, and the importance of having her brand’s evolution reflect her personal journey.
She talks about why you have to be a little delusional to be an entrepreneur, making biz decisions that piss people off, shutting out the white noise and make self care a sacred priority.
On this episode you’ll learn:
- Why you have to be a little delusional to be an entrepreneur.
- Getting comfortable making business decision that piss people off.
- Shutting out the white noise and making self care a sacred priority.
- How to maintain your sanity as an entrepreneur.
- The importance of lifting the taboo of discussing mental health.
- Why writing in a journal is the cheapest form of therapy for her.
- Why she shuts down the idea that she’s fearless.
- The dangers of scaring yourself into analysis paralysis.
