An Outside idea from Michelle Goulding : Put your big girl pants on

Oi! (as the Mols’ say)


I’m really honoured to be asked to open up this week’s Outside idea and to hopefully introduce some weekend dreaming into your lives – in the form of new adventures.

I’m Michelle Goulding and I am your local trustworthy independent travel agent.
In my previous life, I was tied to a desk counting beans and known as the “Judith Chalmers of the finance world”. Over those 20 years, I managed to travel extensively across 6 of the 7 continents, experiencing new cultures, foods, languages and meeting amazing people along the way. What I didn’t realise at the time was that all my holidays were creating a knowledge bank and would lead to a big change in career.
Three years ago, I decided to put on my big girl pants, take a leap out of accountancy and follow my passion for travel. I decided to use my knowledge and experiences to create memorable trips for other people.  I absolutely love my new life and honestly have not looked back once – and that’s saying something considering what the last 12 months have bought to my industry.
My challenge to you all this week is to think about stepping outside of your comfort zone.  It is amazing what you can achieve when you are out of your routine and trying something new. A couple of weeks ago, I put my big girl pants back on (they are bigger now due to lockdown) and stepped out again to do something that I’ve wanted to do for at least a decade – watch this space…….


Be brave, give it a go and let us know what you achieve…….
