"I knew I would always be self-employed, even my kindergarten report card said “Problems with figures of authority." "
Arlene Keith (formerly Doyle) has been a registered massage therapist since 1981 and graduated from the College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Sutton. Massage Therapy has been her full time career for 38 years now and she loves to be self-employed as she has never done well working for someone else. Arlene is the mother of three and has been described as Adventurer, Soul searcher, hiker, Balderson blueberry farm entrepreneur- which we get into about her transition from massage therapist to blueberry farmer and she is also a Blogger. Her blog is theflipsideoffity.com where she blogs about her adventure’s in life and around the world often taking months at a time to travel and hike- usually solo in a new destination. She recently completed paddling through the everglades using only a compass and a map and her next adventure brings her to New Zealand hiking the Te Aroaroa (te-are-a-roa) also known as “the long trail”. Arlene was highly recommended to me by Huguette Long who is the second episode of this podcast and Arlene was also recommended to me by her niece who was in the pop-up podcast studio when I recorded the very first episode and said “you have to meet my aunt Arlene, she is definitely a radical RMT!” Please bear with me in this episode as I was overwhelmed with how to fully capture how Radical Arlene is and feel I got off to a slow start but, we do pick up the pace and she shares some wonderful insights about how she plans to transition out of massage therapy, the advantages of solo travel, and not worrying about the money you will lose by taking time off. I hope you enjoy this episode with Arlene Keith!
