  • E357 - Karen Gershowitz - Tourist vs Traveller - 95 Countries Visited and How to See The World

    Episode 357 - Karen Gershowitz - Tourist vs Traveller - 95 Countries Visited and How to See The World

    About Karen Gershowitz

    I was 17 years old, traveling alone, when I boarded a plane to Europe. Living in a different culture I experienced the world in new and surprising ways and discovered myself. My love of travel was born. I didn’t return to the US for three years.

    Since then I’ve traveled to more than 90 countries. I climbed Kilimanjaro, conquered my fear of falling to go on an elephant trek in Thailand, spent time in Berlin shortly after the wall came down, stayed with a Japanese family who taught me to make sushi and made friends across the globe.

    In pursuit of my passion for travel I’ve lost and gained friends and lovers and made a radical career change. Travel is my addiction, and I don’t want treatment

    I studied ceramics in college and graduate school but abandoned that career and switched to marketing so that employers would pay for my travel. In my new career as a marketing strategist and researcher I’ve traveled the world conducting thousands of meetings, focus groups and interviews. My skills as an interviewer have persuaded total strangers to talk candidly about the most intimate of subjects, personal bankruptcy, illness, and religion. When traveling for pleasure, those same skills helped me to draw out people’s stories. I’ve learned about their lives, as well as local customs and fashions and what makes them laugh. These conversations often led to invitations for dinner and personal tours.

    Travel Mania is a compilation of stories that explore how travel can change a life. Like my readers, I am an ordinary person. Through travel I’ve learned courage and risk taking and succeeded at things I didn’t know I could do.

    Each story can be read and enjoyed independently. My hope is that they will tickle the travel bug in readers and encourage them to set off on their own adventures.

    I live in New York City.

  • E356 - Debra Atlas - You Aren't Depression's Victim - Powerful Questions to Ask Yourself
    Apr 22 2024

    Episode 356 - Debra Atlas - You Aren't Depression's Victim - Powerful Questions to Ask Yourself

    You Aren't Depression's Victim, a departure from Debra Atlas's usual journalistic writing, is designed to be uplifting and empowering. It offers readers thought-provoking ideas and possibilities.

    Have you ever wondered if you had a choice when faced with depression? We often think we must automatically fall into the depression pit, that there's no other option. But what if you could see and recognize depression before it hit? What if we didn't have to fall down into that dark pit but could see it coming and do something to step back from it?

    This intimate look into Ms. Atlas's lifelong journey with depression:

    * reveals how to identify where the edge of depression actually is,

    * provides tools to help you recognize depression before it hits,

    * shines a light on simple actions that can help us step back from the edge.

    Living an "odd man out", roller coaster-like life, Atlas kept her depression hidden from family and friends – until she attempted suicide at age 14. From her emotional recovery to life at college, grad school and on to the Big Apple, Atlas strove to find meaning and balance while lacking the words or skills for her search. Living with a deep sense of inadequacy, her "I'm not good enough" constantly put a lid on her ability to be a star in her life.

    A chance meeting with a therapist became a lifeline when Atlas faced an overwhelming emotional crisis. The therapy that followed opened the door to life-changing insights and to desperately needed tools that helped her gain clarity, confidence and equilibrium. This book is the culmination of that work. Through her hard work and the lessons learned from it, Atlas discovered that we have a choice, that we don't have to be a victim of depression, and this unlocked a bright path to living a balanced and fulfilled life.
