The 20 Lessons of Moving from Brooklyn to Boulder

Remember my friend Gina, who left Brooklyn a year and a half ago for a fresh start in Boulder? Well she gave a funny and inspiring talk about the lessons she learned along the way, as part of Ignite Boulder's monthly series of quirky 5 minute presentations. This video made me smile when I first saw it. When you take a risk, you are never sure what you're going to get, which is why I am so happy for her that she was able to create a good life there, and that we both found our way out of our ruts to venture forward in life's journey. I had the pleasure of visiting her in Colorado this fall and at some point (hopefully) soon, I will share my own Brooklyn versus Boulder experiences from my visit here on this blog.

So check out her video below. Gina's words are guaranteed to make you smile too and maybe even take a chance of your own. The big takeaway - If it's reversible, just do it!
