Tune Out the World And Travel Onward, A Mental Fitness Journey With Amy Yip
This episode is an amazing story about strength, trusting the voice within and what it takes to walk away from the life you were told to live in order to travel to the life you were destined to live. Amy Yip talks about what mental fitness actually means and how traveling to Ghana, Africa, and tuning out the rest of the world changed her destiny forever.
Amy Yip is the founder of AmyYipCoaching.com. She’s a Life Transformation and Mental Fitness coach who works with high-achieving women to let go of the ‘shoulds’ and be the author of their own life story (because if you don’t tell your story, someone else will). After 16+ years of building and leading global teams in organizations like Google, Clorox, and Booz Allen, Amy left the corporate world in January 2020, sold all her belongings in her NYC apartment, and took a 1-way flight to Ghana with her husband to volunteer at a breast cancer non-profit. The plan was to volunteer until May then travel the world, but COVID changed those plans and she ended up stuck in Ghana for 7 months.
One of the greatest learnings on her life journey so far is that: Your mindset, NOT your circumstance, makes all the difference in your happiness and success.
