Explore Every Day Available Nov 19

When we travel, we see the world with new eyes, eat new foods, and meet people from different cultures. We learn, we explore, we challenge ourselves — and return all the better for having refreshed and renewed our outlook. 

Explore Every Day encourages you to apply the same sense of adventure at home to discover your creativity, your inner adventurer and your community.

Her ‘Finding Your Voice’ exercises completely changed the way I view my professional writing style… her knowledge and passion for her art form is enormous.

Alex has an incisive mind that cuts through the static. She has gently but powerfully nudged me in the direction of clarity and purpose.
