"Conscious Living" With Rae Tashman
In this episode of Roam + Golightly: A Podcast For Creative Adventurers, I chat with one of the original conscious lifestyle bloggers out there, Rae Tashman! Rae is an ex-pat living in Berlin, a city that she loves and is constantly inspired by. As a UI designer, blogger, writer, podcaster and public speaker... Rae is one well spoken lady who doesn't believe in fitting in one type of creating. Our conversation circles around our mutual love of adventure and Rae's insight on how we can take tiny, small steps toward living a more intentional life. Check it out!
