Have you ever watched Indiana Jones? When I think of that movie I think about adventure, awesome hats and fascinating ancient history.
Well, my guest on today's show Laura Grier @lauragriertravel, is known as the “Indiana Jones of Adventure Travel Photography”. She was named on Discovery Channel UK’s “20 Richest People in the World List”; people who are rich in life experiences. Living overseas and working for the CIA by age 18, she began what would become a lifelong wanderlust. As a photojournalist for the past 20 years, she has photographed weddings and travel on all 7 continents making a career out of exploring and documenting the world. She's passionate about storytelling, mentoring, women’s education and empowerment, photography and travel.
Laura leads workshops, expeditions, and has recently launched Andeana Hats, her passion project with National Geographic working with Quechua Artisans in Peru.
On today's show Laura opens up about what it was like growing up with her parents working for the CIA and later working for them herself, why she was dubbed the Indians Jones of the adventure travel photography, how her company supports the native Peruvian tribes, how to create a sustainable fashion brand and how to create your dream job with purpose.
I really loved my chat with Laura and learned a great deal from it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
