In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Billy Lahr.

As I always say, I love when I have the opportunity to connect with fellow nomads.  However, although, Billy and I share that same nomadic wanderlust, we’re going about it in two completely different ways.  Sandy and I in an RV in the United States, Canada, and Mexico while Billy is literally traveling the globe.

In 2021, Billy was one of 47 million Americans who quit their jobs due to burnout and priority re-evaluation.  Following the challenges our nation’s educators faced during the pandemic, he no longer had the passion needed to work with high school students.  For the next two years, he traveled all over the world in search of meaningful experiences to reignite his passion for helping others.  Throughout his journey, he met many incredible people along the way, and he shared with them how his mindfulness practice not only changed his life but most likely saved it as well.  When he opened up about his own mental health struggles, he found that people all over the world were also re-evaluating their priorities in life but just needed guidance to do so more intentionally and mindfully.
