Episode 101: Ginger Kern is a transformational coach, TEDx speaker, a Fulbright alumna and the Curator of Global Shapers’ Boulder Hub. After working in Europe for over three years and traveling to 25 countries around the world by the age of 25, Ginger wanted to bring the ‘traveler’s mindset’ back to the United States. She saw that only 38% of Americans have their passport, she has since founded travelersmindset.com along with a non-profit called The Passport Project to change that stat.
Through her transformative coaching and keynote speeches across the U.S., Ginger’s work creates adventurous people who are confident and powerful on the road and in their everyday lives.
