Transitioning from the City to the Countryside with Olivia Grundy

Tiny Farm Friends Ep. 16

Have you ever wondered what happens when your dreams take longer to take flight? How often have you caught yourself saying, "When I have this, then I'll do that?" Why do we wait for the perfect moment to chase our dreams?

And perhaps the most profound question:

What if you only had six months left to live—what would you pursue then?

These are the reflections that often echo through our minds, urging us to question our choices and embrace the present. In this episode, we embark on a journey of self-discovery and inspiration with a guest who dares to dream of a different life—one that involves moving to the countryside and co-creating a world of beauty and sustainability. She doesn't believe in waiting for the stars to align; she's all about living her dreams in the here and now. Our guest is none other than Olivia Grundy, the visionary behind the captivating blog "Shared Earth Living."

"Slow slow slow solutions... That's how the Earth moves. That’s how our lives move in many ways. That’s how our dreams move forward."
