    She Hit Refresh Mijas, Spain Retreat RECAP! | Ep 53

    Welcome to Season 4 of the She Hit Refresh podcast. A podcast for women age 30 and up who want to break free from routine and start a life of travel. Specifically women who want to move abroad or travel the world long-term. I sit down with women who have made their refresh dreams come true and discuss how and why they moved abroad or hit the road to travel.  

    This episode is a special one as it's a recap of our 2022 She Hit Refresh Mijas, Spain retreat that I hosted in April. I sit down with Astrid Provence who is an experienced global facilitator, coach, speaker, and performance artist from South Africa who joined me at the retreat to help facilitate sessions throughout the week. Come listen as we give you an insight into what the retreat is all about!

    What we discuss


    The origins of the She Hit Retreat
    The purpose of the retreat
    What kinds of women attend the retreat
    Why they attend the retreat
    Where the retreat took place
    The workshops we led
    What excursions we had
    What we all did in our free time during the week
    and much more!


    About Astrid

    Astrid Provénce (She/Her) is an experienced global facilitator, coach, speaker, and performance artist from South Africa, now based in Madrid, Spain. 

    She has spent over 8 years studying personal development, leadership, and spiritual principles. She has worked internationally, having developed and led workshops in over 10 countries. 

    Having studied with The International Coach Federation (ICF), Landmark Worldwide, and great teachers like the late Shakti Malan at Shakti Shiva Academy and Mary Morrisey at The Brave Thinking Institute, she has honed her skills in holding groups through deep processes. 

    Like many women, she grew up in a culture that did not guide, celebrate, or support her sexual development. She embarked on her own sexual awakening in her early thirties that helped her shed layers of shame and disconnection from herself. This led her on a journey to find her passion as a guide to support women in their own re-membering of their pure and empowering erotic nature. She coaches women in sensual wellness, to find their confidence from within, and live a joyful and juicy life.

    Astrid is the co-founder and sensual embodiment coach at Into The Boudoir (ITB). ITB offers sensual experiences for women, workshops, and boudoir photography with a mission that all women celebrate their bodies and reclaim their innate sensual power.

    What It's Like to Become an (Unintentional) Digital Nomad in Your 60s! with Siobhan Farr | Ep 52

    What It's Like to Become an (Unintentional) Digital Nomad in Your 60s! with Siobhan Farr | Ep 52

    Welcome to Season 4 of the She Hit Refresh podcast. A podcast for women age 30 and up who want to break free from routine and start a life of travel. Specifically women who want to move abroad or travel the world long-term. I sit down with women who have made their refresh dreams come true and discuss how and why they moved abroad or hit the road to travel.

    In this episode I speak with Siobhan Farr who is 65 years young! In early 2020, right before the pandemic, she was embarking on her solo adventure of ‘6 Countries x 6 Months’ in her 60s! She had planned to spend 3 weeks in Ecuador but due to the pandemic that turned into 13 months! She became an unIntentional Digital Nomad which led her to start Digital Nomads Beyond 50; an online community for people in their late 40s+ who are currently travel/working, planning to, or just curious.

    What we discuss


    How and why she embarked on her 6 countries in 6 months at 60
    What it was like to get be in Ecuador for 13 months during the pandemic
    How she became an unintentional nomad
    How she makes a living as a digital nomad
    Her advice for women 50+ who feel like it's too late to change their life
    Her community Digital Nomads Beyond 50
    and much more!

    About Siobhan

    In 2019 she started selling off 30 years of her Dallas, Texas life to begin her nomad years on 4 March 2020. Siobhan was looking forward to adding new countries to the 34 she had already visited. However, the pandemic locked her in the first destination of her ‘6 Countries x 6 Months’ 2020 itinerary. Those initial three weeks in Ecuador stretched to 13 months!

    As a result, Siobhan pivoted her plans to market and manage her business full-time remotely; she became an Unintentional Digital Nomad. In search of others who are older Location Independents, her personal experience growing a meet-up to 1300 members led her to become the Spark Originator of Digital Nomads Beyond 50.

    DNB50 is an online community for people in their late 40s+ who currently travel/work, plan to, or are just curious about this life. She turned to her previous profession in corporate Learning & Development to organize the DNB50 Virtual Summit June 2021, 30+ topics presented by 28 experts. This June in Medellin, Colombia she’ll host the first Digital Nomad CoLiveWork specifically designed for older nomads!

    Siobhan is truly a home-free Digital Nomad. She has no permanent base; her home is wherever I lay my head on the pillow that night.

    September - December she's back in Dallas to work in-person Medicare and ObamaCare Annual Enrollment. The other eight months of the year, from various global locations, she serves her clients via internet.

    As a multi-income steam entrepreneur, she publishes the travel blog Bronze Abroad Nomad and, via Amazon, The Ultimate Digital Nomad Travel Planner + Journal series. As a solo Digital Nomad in her 60s, and a woman of color, Siobhan want to inspire others to banish the belief that it's too late to reinvent themselves. Flip the page, the future is still unwritten!

    How Travel & Hitting Refresh Led Jessica Ellerbrock to FInd Her Purpose and Passion | Ep 51

    Welcome to Season 4 of the She Hit Refresh podcast.  A podcast for women age 30 and up who want to break free from routine and start a life of travel. Specifically women who want to move abroad or travel the world long-term. I sit down with women who have made their refresh dreams come true and discuss how and why they moved abroad or hit the road to travel.

    In this episode I speak with Jessica Ellerbrock who is 45 years young and originally from Ohio. Jessica moved up the ranks in retail buying working for large corporations like The Men's Warehouse and Sears but when she was unexpectedly let go after a 10 year run she not only lost her job but also her identity. So she did what any refresher would do in times of uncertainty, she hit the road to travel! Travel has taken Jessica all over the world and has led her to find her purpose and passion. Listen in as Jessica tells us how her road of refreshes led her to London where she currently works as a Sales & Operations Manager for a social enterprise that employs women in creative arts.

    What we discuss


    How losing a job in corporate America led to a loss of identity
    The healing process of Walking the Camino de Santiago 
    Losing her mom at 27 to breast cancer and how (and when) she dealt with the loss
    How hitting brought awareness to her trauma and allowed her to seek help
    How a Kiva fellowship to Rwanda in microfinance set her on a whole different path
    Her subscription box Wanderkarma 
    Doing a masters at age 41 and changing careers 
    How she went to volunteer in Greece at a refugee camp and ended up getting a job in London
    How she found her passion from her refresh journey
    What helped keep her moving forward during the uncertainty
    and more!


    About Jessica

    Jessica always had wanderlust, but never had time. At 38 she lost her job in Corporate America and immediately took a refresh backpacking trip through Europe. She spent 2 months in Spain - 1 of those months was spent walking the Camino de Santiago. This journey showed her that she had a lot of work to do on healing from the death of her mother.

    Since then, the journey continues from volunteering in microfinance in Rwanda, going back for her masters, and to now working with a social enterprise employing refugee women in creative products.

    Her passion is her own small business - Wanderkarma, which is a subscription travel box supporting local artists in a new country each month. 

    Connect with Jessica on her website, at Wanderkarma, and follow her on Instagram.

    A Third Culture Kid with Five Children: Living in the Middle East with Dr. Kate Green | Ep 48

    A Third Culture Kid with Five Children: Living in the Middle East with Dr. Kate Green | Ep 48

    Welcome to Season 4 of the She Hit Refresh podcast.  A podcast for women age 30 and up who want to break free from routine and start a life of travel. Specifically women who want to move abroad or travel the world long-term. I sit down with women who have made their refresh dreams come true and discuss how and why they moved abroad or hit the road to travel.


    In this episode I speak to Dr. Kate Green, mother of 5,  who is currently a professor of psychology in the United Arab Emirates. Tune in to hear about her life in the Middle East and how she's chosen to educate her kids as they've moved around the world.



    What we discuss


    What life is like in the United Arab Emirates
    Raising a family of 5 around the world
    What exactly is unschooling and worldschooling?
    Advice for parents who want to travel and move abroad with kids
    Why having a safety net, even if you’re married, is so important
    and more!


    About Kate

    As a life-long explorer and lover of learning, Kate Green has lived and worked around the world. She is currently back in the Middle East for a year as a professor of psychology and has moved her family to this region twice before this to help start new universities.

    Kate has five children born in various places around the world who are now successful young adults and teens (two still living at home) who have all been worldschooled using an unschooling approach to learning. The older three now live in varying international locations and are now 4th generation Third Culture Kids. As a former Dean and professor of psychology and education, worldschooling has often led to interesting clashes with formal systems versus out-of-the-box learning!

    Because of these, she now helps other parents who want to step out of limiting systems to find a new path in their family’s learning journey. The family is currently using a large white board to try and map out where they should move to next summer; getting a PhD was much easier than this. The ideas are numerous!

Ep 28 - Glad You’re Back!

This honest conversation spoke directly to me! I appreciated Annette sharing her feelings about needing to leave her comfort zone in order to see and think more clearly. I could relate to her strong desire to move out of Traditional and stretch — continuing to hit refresh. Love this podcast!
