Kelsey SchaeferAbout our guest: Kelsey Schaefer believes there is so much more to life than working in a cubicle and waiting until retirement to see the world. She feels that travel has taught her more about herself and the world than any degree or job ever could. Her goal is to help others step out of their ‘stable’ situations and take the leap to become the version of themselves they’ve always wanted to be. She truly believes that traveling helps achieve this transformation. Kelsey emphasizes that stepping out of our comfort zone is the key to becoming a better version of ourselves. It allows us to decide who we are when we’re not surrounded by the things that typically define us.
