I say all the time that the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI) happens to many people at the individual level ever day, as it did one day four years ago for today’s guest Jill Elizabeth.
Indeed for some, the end of the world has already come and Jill is one of those who prepared but found herself starting over after losing her house, job, retirement, and desire to rebuild a life in the old system. What then happened has been an 8 year journey about survival, purpose, and meaning.
Having spent over 20 years as a licensed social worker was good preparation for living in a tiny trailer traveling the southwest and discovering real survival is more about who you are and working with others than the stuff you have with you.
Almost four years later survival has taken on a whole new meaning and the discovery that there is tremendous opportunity available for those who want to think outside the system and build something new – or old!
Jill has in the last few years shoveled more manure than she can weigh, built websites, made videos, started a podcast, written several books, counted cows, told her story a million times and worked with others to tell theirs as a key marketing tool. There’s a lot more, but a little mystery is a good thing!
