A little over three years ago, my dad emailed me the link to a BBC article on Australian entrepreneur, author and founder of Collective Hub, Lisa Messenger, in which she spoke about the day she decided to change her life. I had been in Australia for almost a year at this point, was in the midst of various visa and life woes, and thus my dad thought the article would provide some much-needed inspiration and reassurance that there would be a light at the end of the metaphoric tunnel I had found myself in at the time.
I was already a fan of Lisa Messenger’s at this point; her magazine – Collective Hub, was top of my dream client list, and so, after reading said article I sent her a tweet asking whether she had any work opportunities at the time. Alas, she didn’t, but I reached out again two years later, shortly after she posted a job opening on her Instagram and we later got together for a coffee.
While nothing immediate came in the wake of our meeting – we met again earlier this year to discuss some projects Lisa had in the pipeline for the ever-evolving Collective Hub brand, which is where The Ultimate Travel Journal first came to life. Unbeknown to Lisa at the time, it was my birthday that day, and being asked to join the Collective Hub team was the best birthday present I could ever have asked for.
As an avid and passionate traveller and holiday-maker, helping to write The Ultimate Travel Journal was a dream come true, and has undoubtedly been my career highlight to date. A beautiful companion for all types of traveller, it has everything from packing tips to journal prompts and is filled with tips, tricks and travel hacks a-plenty.
The perfect place for would-be wanderlusters to document their travels – we filled the journal with inspiration for anyone who wants to explore faraway lands, adventure through terrains unknown and take every opportunity to travel somewhere new.
I couldn’t be prouder – or happier – to see in the start of spring and my new chapter down under with the launch of such a special project, and if you’d like to get your hands on a copy, you can do so here.
