The concept I like to promote to clients (both pre-existing and potential) is this idea of a “Lush Life.”

That basically means creating wonderful experiences that contain magic and passion with the whole family (or, if need be, just one couple or sub-section therein).

I’ve been doing this for about six years now, but before that I was an actuary. It’s interesting to think about the vast differences and periodic parallels between those two worlds — we talk a lot about ROI (conventional return on investment) and then ROL (or return on life). I dealt a lot with ROI in the actuarial world, and I deal hourly with ROL in this one. In a way, it’s as if I went from being a true actuary to a happiness actuary — and I’ve never been happier.

This whole role is about building memories: what are you looking to bring away from this travel experience? I can coordinate what I call the “fly n’ flop,” which is essentially an off-the-grid weekend near a beach, but I can also go much bigger. I recently did a backroads Hawaii trip for a family who wanted some time to bond with their getting-older-before-you-realize children before they left home. Again, it’s about the experience involved. 

In this world, I believe value is more important than price. I’d love to work with you to get started on your own Lush Life.
