Episode 117. "I think it's always kind of a struggle of not feeling like I'm fully fulfilling my purpose. As much as I love my business and I love the freedom, especially, that it gives me - I mean, what entrepreneur doesn't love that? - but I still feel that lack of purpose." ~Rebekah Read
Listen to The Creative Impostor’s current series, and you’ll quickly pick up on a theme: travel as a love story. The guests differ in age and background, but all have prioritized travel, building a professional life on the go. These inspiring people share a love for the places and people off the beaten path, some backing into romance on the road, while others have found forever homes in foreign lands.
Rebekah Read's story is a bit different but no less love-filled. “All of a sudden, I was thrown into motherhood and was not expecting that. I was 22, you know? I thought I was going to be doing marketing.”
Now 28, the Seattle-based owner of Rebekah Read Creative, a website branding agency, looks back at her younger self and knows with complete conviction that her trajectory pointed in one direction.
Rebekah first visited Central America as a student fulfilling college degree requirements. She returned as a grad with her marketing degree in hand and big dreams of assisting a local non-profit with its messaging. Reality quickly settled in. Rebekah shifted gears, working on a foster care program for orphaned children while also providing ad hoc care in the nursery.
The physically, spiritually, and emotionally exhausting experience crystalized Rebekah’s desire to combine passion with purpose.
Digital nomads and skill seekers take note: Rebekah’s offering a Squarespace SEO course for $97 which includes a Facebook group for community support during your website revamp process. She’ll also host Round 2 of her online mastermind program in 2021! Space is limited and registration begins in November. Check out all the details at rebekahreadcreative.com
