Courtney Condy was a recent college grad who felt disillusioned with the corporate grind while living and working in San Francisco. A last-minute trip to Nepal in 2015 changed her life forever when her trekking group got caught in the middle of an 8.1 magnitude earthquake two days away from Everest Basecamp. Upon returning to the US she quit her job and became an Adventure Travel Guide and began leading trips all around the US and the world. In 2018, She founded Occupation Wild, a job board for the outdoor, adventure, and travel industry, based on the belief that if it’s just for a season or a lifetime, there is nothing more rewarding than working in the outdoors.
How fitting is that? I love Courtney’s story – I love when people bring their idea to life. We talk about that – it’s incredible, we are a generation apart, and both had similar experiences where we weren’t exposed to all that is possible when growing up, so she pursued what she thought she was supposed to. I love it when people reconcile what they want to do with what they are supposed to do.
With that, let’s listen in to our conversation.
