Rafting Durango waters is freeeezing, but FUN!
After a fantastic two-day master-mind meeting with the other Platinum Partner 'Product Launch Managers' trained by Jeff Walker, a small group of us went to enjoy the water rafting in Durango, Colorado.
James Klobasa, Eugenie Verney, Jane Tabachnick, Ralph Watkins and I had a blast enjoying this sporting experience, witnessing the gorgeous scenery surrounding us.
The water was cold. VERY cold. 47 degrees Fahrenheit (8 degrees Celsius!)
The rafting lasted two hours. Then for the rest of the day we enjoyed the sunshine on an outdoor deck at a restaurant, sipping margaritas and eating a lunch of blackened catfish and salad.
Rafting Durango waters was a highlight of visiting this scenic town. If you want to do it, opt for the wetsuit!

"Cyclone" the Coney Island Roller Coaster is incredible! What a ride!
It's a historic hybrid roller coaster in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn, New York. It's the oldest wooden roller coaster!
Built in 1927, the Coney island Roller Coaster is a rickety old ride, but a powerful one and a tad scary! There were a few times I felt the cart almost lift off the rails, and equally as many times I was almost rattled out of my seat!
My friend Croix Sather and I had a blast on the Coney Island boardwalk and amusement park area. But the "Cyclone" roller coaster ride was my favorite highlight for the day.
Check out the Coney Island Roller Coaster for some awesome fun if you come to this part of the world.

"The Barefoot Investor" is a book, a brand and a man.
If you haven't 'met' him already, meet Scott Pape.
He is an Aussie man who has his financial act together, and teaching many others (particularly targeting those in their 20s and 30s) how to do the same.
Personally, I'm 'a-foot' again, traveling the world, which is how I have come to 'meet' Scott.
Having left Perth International airport (heading for New York) 27 hours ago, I'm currently 'resting' at Heathrow airport in London. I'm still enjoying reading Scott's book "The Barefoot Investor" which I picked up at the bookstore at the airport.
It's a little like reading my own thoughts, with a slightly more 'ocker' 'accent'.
Scott's background is as a Stockbroker and his advice on finance, lifestyle, living life on your terms and money carries a flair of a cross between Tim Ferriss and Robert Kyosaki... no wonder I have an instant love for the way this man thinks!
I'm already half way through the book - The Barefoot Investor - (I did also watch two movies and slept 8 hours on the flight from Perth to Singapore to London!) and feel inspired to share this fabulous resource with you.
His website also carries the same name:
Why do I LOVE this book (and the man) so much?
Because he's another YOUNG AUSTRALIAN who's figured it out.
He's figured out how to USE MONEY and not have money use him.
He gets it!
He understands the power of this tool we use as a currency to get the THINGS WE WANT and he teaches how to direct your finances to get more of what YOU value, while also creating your own 'Barefoot Investor' pathway to your financial freedom.
If you want your own copy, click the link below (and yes, this is my affiliate link, so I will get all of a few bucks if you click through me! Seriously, I don't care if you want to find your own way to buy his book. Support him. Support yourself. And find your own pathway to financial freedom!)
The Barefoot Investor: Five Steps to Financial Freedom in Your 20s and 30s
Help support the man, who's passion is to help so many!
I am a woman on a mission to encourage you to live YOUR life on YOUR terms...
To encourage you to create your OWN unique footprint on the path of life...
Scott Pape, the author of The Barefoot Investor is also encouraging you to go along your own 'Barefoot Path' and live life on your terms! He gives you financial strategies to do so.
I'm always excited when I come across other like-minded people, and especially so with another young Aussie. It also makes the journey of teaching and inspiring others to do the same (live life on their terms) so much more gratifying and rewarding...
So.. with a bottoms up of my glass of wine while I finish up this blog at Heathrow airport (British Airways Lounge) ..here's a "CHEERS!" to celebrating your life on YOUR terms!
P.s. remember to come back and comment on this blog post what you think about Scott's Book.
