I’m Teri Karl, Joyedian™!
I am continually morphing as a person, so expect this site to be chameleon-like as well! BUT I’ve always been fascinated by dreams and love to see others experience joy, fulfillment, and success.
My main dream is creating experiences of adventure, particularly through travel. It all began with studying abroad my junior year in college in Monterrey, Mexico (and then taking a fantastic “Backpack por Mexico” class.) My gift to myself in landing my first career was a Rick Steve’s trip to Europe. Since then I returned to Mexico for one of my Masters classes, biked the Canadian Rockies a few times, and took the Silk Road through China. In the summer of 2017 I walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain (the Camino Frances) in 31 days and absolutely loved it, and in January of 2018 I married the love of my life in one of the most beautiful places in the U.S. — Fiscalini Ranch in Cambria, CA. My next dream is to live the “van life,” and to explore the U.S. as the nomad I really am.
I also love to travel within. Through my blog you’ll come to know my love for all things metaphysical. In this lifetime I seek to increase connectivity through exploring the beauty of accepting ourselves and each other. I emphasize the power of our thoughts, the power we all share to be a force for change in our lives an in creating a world that serves the good of all concerned.
In my work three things stand out for me: creativity, impact, and empowerment. I envision successful, self-empowered individuals who are enjoying life! I’m not quite 40, but I’ve already had a very interesting work life; I’ve done a little of many things. I spent a few summers in retail, spent 9 years toward a career for the state (a public school teacher), 1 year working blue collar (a textbook warehouse worker), 6 years contractual work (tutoring and writing), and a half year of white collar work (an office assistant). As an entrepreneur I’ve also started two businesses: a franchised LLC called Early Education Enrichment (preschool small group tutoring) and an S-Corp: Teri Karl, Inc. (coaching and tutoring). Right now I’m still working three of those!
My current efforts fuel continued self-development and movement toward my mobile dream. I aspire to inspire other dreamers as we all step into the lives of our dreams. Thank you for joining me on my journey, and here’s to yours! ❤
