When Katy Colins was broken up with days before her wedding, she could have sunk into a tub of Ben and Jerry's. Instead, she sold all her belongings and traveled the world. Her blog, Not Wed or Dead, ended up becoming much more than a travel blog, but a community for those recovering from heartache. Katy's experiences inspired her to write the Destination series, beginning with Destination Thailand. She shares her publishing experience, life lessons, and so much more.

To know Lourdes Juan is to know a busy person.
Named one of Calgary's Top 40 Under 40, I had to get Lourdes onto the podcast. I first came to hear about Lourdes through the Leftovers Foundation, a non-profit that rescues perfectly good food that was destined for the landfill and diverts it to people and organizations in need. She's also the owner of Soma Spa with the only Turkish hammam experience in Calgary and Hive Developments, an urban planning consultancy.
Did I mention she's in her early 30s?
