Post-it Note Advice For a Quarter-Life Crisis

The other night I made mac and cheese for dinner and joked to my friends on social media about the fact that I’m definitely not a grown-up.   Instagrammed Evidence, Exhibit A: After all, grown-ups eat vegetables for dinner. They have recipe books and they’re not afraid to use 'em, right? My Pinterest account seems to suggest that the answer is yes, but I’m beginning to become skeptical. Conversely, my...

Weekly Mixtape: “I think I can I think I can!”

Weekly Mixtape: “I think I can I think I can!” “I think I can. I think I can.” What’s your personal mantra during tough times? We all occasionally need a little extra push to keep us truckin’ along. This weekend playlist is all about perseverance--not giving up when the going gets tough.   Read More →

“If You Fail, That’s Just A Chapter in the Story…”

I like to think of life as a series of chapters in a book, where each individual gets to write his or her own story. Roadtrip Nation encourages people to find their own Roads in life. But what happens when you feel like you’ve wandered off the path? How do you deal with writer’s block? This weekend’s youtube playlist is full of Leaders who have gotten creative, followed their hearts, and...

Failure! Failure! Abort! Abort! NO! Stick it out!

Oh, failure. The big ‘F word.’ The downfall; the third strike, you’re out; the moment you realize, “Yup, that definitely didn’t work.” We’ve all had a failure (or like, 3,000 of them). Some of us have even been able to deem them ‘epic’ fails. But as negative as failure may seem, is it really as bad as we are made to believe?   Read More →

Weekly Playlist: Tension is a good thing…

  My mum always taught me never to back down from a challenge. To always put your all into something, even if it’s difficult or it seems too hard or out of reach. But I never really understood. I wanted to be lazy, I didn’t want to work hard, I wanted an easy path that involved very little effort. It was only after I entered my mid-twenties and went on a Roadtrip that I...

Weekly Playlist: Lights, Camera, ACTION! Let’s talk about action!

This week, we’re talking about taking action and what it means to just start doing.  At times, we can get so stuck in our own head, overanalyzing and waiting for that “perfect” time to create a life that’s driven by passion, that we never go ahead and just do it! The truth is, there’s never going to be a “perfect” time to tackle something, and we can be our own...

Weekly Playlist: Under Pressure like Bowie (But Not as Fun).

Pressure can come in many forms: family, friends, and society. There’s even that inner dialogue we have with ourselves that can weigh us down by saying ‘You suck! You’ll never be good enough!’   Let’s face it: while we’re out defining our own Roads, there’s plenty of pressures that can put a halt to our track. Even the most successful people we’ve talked to have had to deal with negative...

The Cold Hard Facts!

Hey blogosphere, Sasha here, ready to share this week’s playlist. And this time around, we’re keepin’ it real. Not that we’ve been fooling you this whole time, but the truth is: while we like to inspire you guys, we don’t want to hide the fact that following your passion can be tough. It’s not all fairy dust and unicorns.   As magazine editor Debbie Stoller puts it, following a passion...

Weekly Playlist: Risky Business

Hello! This is Sasha, and I’m the new online community assistant here at Roadtrip Nation.  I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone to be a part of Roadtrip and funny enough, this week’s mix tape is all about risk.   We’ve highlighted some Leaders who have found success by taking risk. In Season Four of our TV series, our Roadtrippers sat down with Gibson Guitar CEO Henry Jusckiewicz to hear his...
