How to run a business while traveling the world — Gigi Griffis

Gigi Griffis on Traveling the world

Gigi Griffis, world traveler

Gigi Griffis dreamed of traveling the world since she was a small child. But, like most people, she fell into the typical corporate 9-5. While she was working in marketing, she strarted getting the itch to do something different. She wanted a business she could run while traveling the world. She couldn’t just quit her job without a plan, so she figured out a really smart and creative way to make the transition. Gigi will tell us how she created this amazing lifestyle business and how you can too on this episode of the How to Quit Working Show.

Keep Going — Gigi Griffis

What success means to Gigi:

Success is Freedom. It’s being able to work from where I want to work , when I want to work and work on projects mean something to me and are going to help people.


About Gigi:

Speaking of writing books…
My second book (and first travel guide) just launched! It’s called Italy: 100 Locals Tell You Where to Go, What to Eat, and How to Fit In. Think of it as your new Italian best friend—the one who can give you directions to that off-the-beaten path winery, help you find the best pizzeria in town, and clue you in on how to spot real gelato. If you’re dreaming of Italy, you should probably buy it.

I also wrote a memoir.
It’s called And, Also, My Palms Are Sweaty. It’s about love and dating misadventures (emphasis on the misadventures) on two continents. And I wrote it because I want to make you laugh, make you think, and let you know that you’re not alone. Life and love are ridiculous. For all of us.

Now, I’ve got four more books in the works: The Good Girl’s Guide to Living a Badass Life, and new 100 Locals guides to Paris, Prague, Barcelona, and Switzerland.

Oh, yeah. I live this crazy, travel-filled life with my dog.
Yessir. My traveling pooch is called Luna – after the character in Harry Potter. I found her in 2009 and she changed my life. Now, she’s a seasoned world-traveler, a trained therapy dog, and a papered ESA. When she’s not sleeping in weird positions, Luna enjoys bringing me my slippers, staring at me quizzically, and hiding behind me anytime a cat comes near her. (Because cats are terrifying. Duh.)

The world needs more people who go after their dreams. It needs more people who are afraid to fail – and jump off the edge anyway. It needs more people willing to love, laugh, and adventure with abandon.

So let’s do that.
