“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.”—David Bowie

Great Escape Radio host, Jody Maberry and Great Escape Publishing Director, Lori Allen bring back Janette Tepas to the show. You can listen to our last episode with Janette here.

In the past, people came to Great Escape Publishing to either study travel writing or photography. Generally, the two didn’t overlap. But things have changed, and Janette is a great example of that change.

Janette is living the “gig life” which means she’s doing multiple things at a time. She doesn’t have a corporate job that pays her a salary every two weeks. Instead, she’s doing all types of things which is fairly common with creative types.

Janette leads tours, takes photographs, dabbles in digital painting and she’s a seasonal stylist.

Baby boomers like Janette have been taught to value longevity but many boomers are changing direction and learning to value creativity over longevity.

Listen in as Janette shares more about her life and why the “gig life” appeals to her. She also offers advice to others who are interested in pursuing a life less ordinary.

If you’re interested in pursuing something different, one of our favorite opportunities is travel writing. You can visit: and check out the video to learn more about getting started.
