Do-Overs! take time. And work. I remember being struck by Sylvia Acevedo’s turn-of-phrase when recalling her own Do-Over! process. The rocket-scientist-turned-entrepreneur explained how she had “done the work,” trying out everything from fast cars to salsa dancing.
When you’re looking to change-it-up, you need to get out and sample that brave new world–new places, new people, new experiences.
That’s where my pilates BFF Molly Cumming comes in. The Austin-based designer is in the midst of a Do-Over! As she tells it:
I have been searching for something for a while. I don’t know what it is. It might be a new career, it might be a hobby, or maybe simply some skill that I might be able to use somewhere, sometime. Or a skill that I may never use again.
Over the past few years, I’ve admired the way that Molly has insistently set out to find her next-thing by enrolling in a string of learning experiences that ranged from sommelier school to goat camp. (I live vicariously . . .)
So now Molly has started a new blog, “Camp Curator,” to chronicle her Do-Over! adventure and share her best camp discoveries for the rest of us. Check out “Camp Curator” to inspire your own journey and discover some great options for a Do-Over! camp getaway.
Molly’s off to stitching camp this weekend. Can’t wait to read all about it!
