Mike Brcic, the founder of Sacred Rides, never imagined he’d have the world’s #1 mountain bike tour company in the world.
All he really wanted to do was get paid to take people on awesome trails around British Columbia.
That was 21 years ago, and since, he’s not only grown his business to great heights, but he’s also been able to take people mountain biking all over the world (yes, including Greenland)!
Mike talks about how they pick destinations, where they find the guides, and what a trip entails and also discusses why anyone, even someone who has never ridden a mountain bike before, can go on a trip…and why they should.
Plus, Mike discusses the charity he has set up and of course, tells us his biggest travel mishap (which happened very far from Greenland!)
Like most of us, 15-year-old Jessica Lawrence had a dream. She knew what she wanted to do, and she was going to do it.
Except, like most of us, she put it off…and put it off…and put it off.
Until, 22 years later, she finally stopped putting it off…and just DID IT.
She cycled across the entire country, 4200+ miles, alone. Not as a college student. Not as a retiree. And not as a foreigner.
But as a 37-year-old single woman who has a job, has a career, and has a life.
And now, she’s on a mission to motivate others to take a hold of their dreams and find a way to do them, no matter how long they’ve put them off and no matter how many excuses they’ve made.
But the great part of this interview is that not only is Jessica incredibly motivating, but also hilarious.
From being asked if she’s carrying a gun with her (4 times!) to being proposed to by a 79-year-old man, Jessica recounts some of the best stories from her amazing journey and also gives insanely useful tips for anyone wishing to do the same.
