Episode Show Notes

“Really on that beach in Maui when I was watching those SUP boarders surf those waves, and play around and just have the time of their life, I was like, “Wow, I really need to rethink my priorities” (…) It was really depressing because I was like, ”OK, I’ve got the marriage, I’ve got the house, I’ve got the cars and I’ve checked these boxes and there’s something that’s drastically unhappy in my life”. I didn’t have that sense of adventure.“ — Jenn Biestman, Co-Founder, Local-ish.

“Local-ish is all about adventure, respecting the land, the people, everyone you’re around, and you get that sense of community and belonging. Essentially, we aim to foster that sense of community and a place for people to belong.” — Jenn Biestman, Co-Founder Local-ish
