It's Wise Women Wednesday, each week I interview a woman that I believe is inspiring, living abundantly and following her passions. These are all women who live a life of abundance and bring creativity into the world.

Q. Who are you? What is your background?
A. Hi everyone, I am Brie Goumaz an entrepreneur, digital nomad, sometimes blogger, dachshund lover and overall travel addict. I have been traveling as much as I can for the past 6 years and cannot get enough. I started in the digital marketing world with a travel blog and learned so much from it which led me to my digital marketing business.
Q. What is your work?
A. I am the owner of WildGoose Creatives a Digital Marketing company focusing on Pinterest and Social Media Strategy. I love helping other people’s dreams come true by growing their business!
Q. What is one project you are excited to be working on right now?
A. I am super excited that my boyfriend Shawn and I are working on building our sprinter van into a tiny home on wheels. We plan on living in it full time and eventually taking it on the road.
Q. What is one thing you've done recently that's scared you and took courage, but you're glad you did?
A. This past month we had to make a choice, speed up building our camper van (by 6 months) or play it safe and get an apartment which would delay Van Life by a year or longer. My boyfriend and I decided it was time to take a chance and are currently trying to build our van into a livable home and travel-mobile!
Q. What is the work you most want to be doing and are you doing it? If not, why not? What's stopping you?
A. I have always envisioned myself doing more to help people and animals (One day maybe I’ll tell you about my dream of a dachshund café). Simply put, I’m not there yet. I’ll find my way eventually :)
Q. What would you tell your high school or college self?
A. I would tell my college self to always follow your gut. It’s NEVER wrong.
Q. What's one piece of advice or motto you love and use in your daily life that you would like to share with my sweet readers?
A. If there is something you want to do- do it. Make a plan and figure out how to make these wild dreams of yours come true. It’s all up to you and your dreams are valid and worthy of coming true.
Q. What keeps you creating when you don't feel like it?
A. Naps haha. Probably not what you meant but if I’m not in the mood to create then I simply take a break (maybe a cuddle sesh with my dachshund) and come back to it in an hour. If I can’t take a break then why become an entrepreneur in the first place?
Q. Anything else you'd like to share?
A. If you want to follow my Van Life progress or ask me any questions about traveling or entrepreneurship feel free to catch up with me on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/chasingthewildgoose
Q. What's your favorite yoga pose?
A. Hmmm probably tree pose with a heart opener mixed in.
Q. How do you live a life of abundance?
A. I feel that this is a current work in progress. Every week I find myself trying to new things to keep myself centered and happy. For me finding alone time to be quiet and reflect always helps to recharge my batteries and keep me in a flow state. I’ve also learned the opposite can be true and that by surrounding myself by brave, encouraging women I in turn become a better entrepreneur and person.
