Networking is dead.
Recently, someone had described me as an “excellent networker”. I laughed and shook my head. I never went to business school, was always terrible at selling things, and when I’m not feeling introverted, I feel like I talk with no filter. Definitely not your ideal hustling networker.
Top Moment 1: Lost Lake Hike
Given that it was only my second time ever in Whistler, I wanted to fit in at least one hike during my Wanderlust adventures. I decided that a hike out to lost lake and a quick wade in the water was the perfect way to start day 3 of my Wanderlust adventures. Signing up for a hike solo was a little intimidating for me, but I figured it would be a good challenge to step outside of my comfort zone.
Anticipation. The one word that describes the build-up before my first Wanderlust Festival experience. I knew little of the festival other then it was full of yoga and meditation, but that is the great part about going into the unknown – you have no expectation of the experiences you are walking into. You have nothing to compare it to, it’s all totally new to you and your mind. I went into the festival with an open mind, one of wanting to learn and soak up as much as possible from this experience and put it into my daily life back in Vancouver. The setting was perfect: Whistler, BC. You are instantly lost in the mountains up there, with so much beauty surrounding your every possible move, my mind was already calmed in that nature setting.
