Because it’s OK to not have it all figured out. We interview Erin Sullivan, the writer behind “Erin Outdoors” about finding your path (in the outdoors and otherwise) through vulnerability, saying no, and self-awareness.

We don’t think there’s any such thing as a straight path and Erin holds her life up as proof. After years of guiding outdoor, adventure, and travel excursions, Erin starting writing and blogging full time. While the site is named “Erin Outdoors”, it’s rife with lessons learned because at the heart of Erin’s work is helping others.

Find Erin on Instagram: @erinoutdoors. Learn more about her coaching and guided trips on her website, www.erinoutdoors.com.

Note from host Gale: In the spirit of imperfection, there’s a rather glaring audio error 23 minutes in. Bear with us for about 5 seconds – it goes back to normal! I’m embarrassed and mad at myself but happy it happened on Erin’s episode because she knows as much as anyone that life doesn’t always go as planned.
