How to Travel More: Lessons with Lisa Niver

 

As a teacher, I am always looking for ways to share my travel knowledge. I loved being invited to speak at the World Traveled Meet-up in Santa Monica. We filmed the talk and the question and answer session which you can peruse below. It was exciting to meet fellow travelers and learn from each other. I even put a new location on my bucket list based on someone else’s experiences traveling.

Learning with Lisa Niver at ZeqrRecently I joined Zeqr which is “a new global knowledge hub set to change how people across the world exchange information. Zeqr allows experts in any field to create classes and deliver their knowledge via one-to-one live video sessions to those seeking their advice.” It was very easy to set up my profile and record a video on their site.

During my recent travel talk, I promised to return and teach a class called: Video 101. That will be my first class on Zeqr as well. This new platform is a way that I can offer personalized learning experiences that work with my travel schedule. Visit my profile on Zeqr to learn more about this class and let me know what other classes you would like to see from me.

I currently have over one million views on my videos on Roku, Amazon and YouTube. In the beginning, I bought a used Cisco Flip on ebay for $50 and went to Taiwan. After two weeks of filming, I returned to my science classroom and told a group of 5th graders, “I took all this video but now what do I do?” Hannah came up to me at the end of class and said, “Ms. Niver, I am going to stay in at recess and teach your iMovie.” That seven minute lesson launched me to many great opportunities including filming two webseries with Orbitz in Bermuda and Puerto Rico and being interviewed by Business Insider, Jet Set TV and many others.

At We Said Go Travel, I have hosted twelve international writing competitions and published nearly 2000 writers from 75 countries. Many people have asked me about writing courses. The incredible judges from my awards are all published and talented writers who have courses. I will ask them to share more of their knowledge on Zeqr which has peer-to-peer, real-time sessions and courses! Another question, I always get asked when I am speaking is how do travel writers make money. Set up your profile now as Zeqr can help experts develop a new source of income with their classes.
