summerFrom the LATEST We Said Go Travel NEWS:

Thank you to Wharton Business Magazine for inviting me to write for them! Enjoy my first article: Content Marketing is Conquering Your Customers!! More articles coming SOON! Including one on Angel Investing and Venture Capital Funding.

My latest article for the Jewish Journal is about DANCING TO DISCOVER FREEDOM! Do you have a secret desire to share? I want to know! Hope to see you at dance class or hula hoop class or on the beach somewhere! Happy 4th of July! Lisa

Thank you to the winners and all the participants in theInspiration Travel Writing Contest. Thank you for reading, commenting and being in our community! I hope you will be inspired to join in our Summer 2014 Independence Writing Contest! The entries so far are really fantastic! Click here to read them all!

We are looking for an article about your act of freedom-a place you chose or that allows you to feel free. Be inspired by Sara Barielles’ song, Brave, and share “What you want to say.” We want to “See you Be Brave…and start speaking up!” Where are you most able to be your true self? In Nellie Bennett’s Only in Spain, she watches a flamenco dancer and shares wanting “to attack my life with that passion, to live with her joy and her devotion to her art… I’d wanted to feel and smell and taste life, and live like that dancer on the stage in Seville, risking that triple turn, never sure she wouldn’t spin right off the stage.” Your place of freedom might be far across the globe or in your own backyard.
