When we began, we knew four simple things:
1. We wanted to journal our personal growth, and give tips for a healthy lifestyle. MINDFULNESS.
2. We wanted to inspire others to go outside their comfort zone. EMPOWERMENT.
3. We wanted to create a beautiful, supportive community. AUTHENTICITY.
4. We wanted to become a reputable network for travelers (or travel newbies!). EXPERT ADVICE.
Our first year of Wander was a learning experience...to word it kindly.
We weren't bloggers or content creators,
we knew nothing about hash-tagging
or interaction rates or SEO optimization.
But we had the dedication. So we learned as we went.
We were, and still are, busy figuring it out.
Exactly how to present ourselves to the world.
How to properly engage with our community that we are building.
When to allot time for organically growing this passion project
through personal engagement, as well as for actually
living the lives we were writing about.
We made mistakes.
We hemorrhaged money in with no return, in mind or in sight.
We disagreed on a little, we compromised on a lot.
But then, something amazing happened.
We started to grow.
We built the community we dreamt about;
connecting with women all over the world,
building REAL friendships,
actually MEETING our wander babes!
WBH continues to grow every single day.
Here, there is a beautiful community behind you,
whether your dream is to become
an entrepreneur, or a world wanderer,
to make it to that Wednesday evening yoga class,
or to just simply know that you have a friend, anywhere in the world.
Whoever you are. Wherever you are.
We welcome you with love!
Come, Wander Beyond Her.
