Ep. 153 - Defying Travel Stereotypes with Nomadness Founder Evita Robinson

#Almost30nation! Hello friends! Excited to introduce you to this week’s guest. Evita Robinson founded the NOMADNESS Travel Tribe, a first-of-its-kind movement bringing together and representing the underrepresented in mainstream travel. Their mission is to show the world that travel has no racial, gender, religious, economic, or interest limitations through community representation and relevancy (like the $50,000,000 being injected into the travel industry every year).   In today’s political climate, it’s more important than ever to get out and travel, meet different people, and immerse yourself in diverse cultures. It allows us to gain perspective and see ourselves as just a part of humanity; something to keep you modest, keep you grounded, and keep you connected to what’s REAL! We love the way Evita embodies this, and we know you are all going to love her.   We discuss…   A stark view of how people of color are underrepresented in the travel industry The highs and lows of NOMADNESS’ group travel events (but mostly highs) How NOMADNESS came to be Reverse culture shock: when home feels like a foreign country How Evita approaches building a community Navigating a new challenge + stepping into your light How social media changed travel Evita’s relationship with spirituality The Airbnb experience for people of color + partnering with Airbnb Why you need people of color in your marketing teams + HR Creating safe + sacred spaces What’s next for NOMADNESS: the first U.S. festival for travelers of color!   Find more to love at almost30podcast.com!   Resources: Learn more | nomadnesstv.com Instagram | @evierobbie Twitter | @evierobbie Look glam & give back with Evita’s lipstick | compassbyevita.com Brass Clothing | Use code ALMOST30 for 15% off your first order at www.brassclothing.com WOO FOR PLAY | Use code ALMOST30 for 10% off at wooforplay.com Uwila Warrior | Use code ALMOST30 for 10% off at uwilawarrior.com/almost30 FabFitFun | Use code ALMOST30 for $10 off at fabfitfun.com Mowellens | Use code ALMOST30 for 10% off your first purchase at mowellens.com Chosen Foods | Use code ALMOST30 for 50% off at chosenfoods.com/almost30
