An Honest Look at Life. Luxury Down to Earth.

Erin Woodward Kivo Daily Serious

Hi.  You may have read about me in Forbes, Entrepreneur, Yahoo Finance , NY Weekly, Business Insider, and Tech Times.  Informally, you may have seen my travel profile from my carefree Tastemaker days with The World's 50 Best Restaurants, after all, I won an award for international travel in 2018, for which I am forever grateful and inspired.  Maybe we crossed paths in Asset Management, or maybe one of my medical spas re-contoured your body and boosted your confidence. We may know each other, or we may not, but I am here to let you know that I am available to you (at no charge) as a sounding board, resource or consultant.  I've towed the corporate line, and I've worked for myself. I have taken core-shaking risks that have failed, and I have taken life-changing risks that have succeeded.  I have traveled the world 6 x's over, founded 3 successful, profitable, multimillion dollar businesses, I employ over 75 people, and I strive each day to learn and grow and GIVE back to as many people as possible.  I am here for you.  Reach out when you are ready.

Effective October 22, 2021, I sold off both of my medical aesthetics boutiques that I founded, grew, owned and operated between 2017 - 2021.  I am a freelance author, entrepreneur, consultant, and medical professional. With a background in finance, business administration, marketing, fine-dining, world-travel, social media, public-speaking, web-design, start-ups, medical laboratories and medical spas.  I am well-rounded to help you meet your own objectives in these area - don't hesitate to reach out, I am extremely approachable and very happy to help.  I'm not special or impressive, just disciplined.

Rule #1 of Travel: Leave it better than you find it.

At this point, I've ventured around the entire world conserving wildlife in Asia, Africa and Australia, scholastically sponsoring orphans in Kenya, funding children's camps in Kentucky, supporting research and development around the world.  For my Antarctic adventure,  I love penguins so much, I am STILL raising money for wildlife and climate research.  In December of 2019, my husband and I, along with a group of friends ventured to Antarctica for two weeks and our web developer JUMPED into the ice cold Antarctic Ocean with the actual penguins.  If you feel called to support the cause, you can still donate here!  Many thanks in advance. We video'd the whole ordeal and posted it to Antarctic Highlights.  We reached almost $1,700 in December of 2019! Donations may be tax deductible, and this cause is driven by Platinum Sculpt CoolSculpting in conjunction with - WE LOVE TO FREEZE!



Welcome to my award winning blog according to UK Blog Awards 2018 -voted top 8 international and travel blog.  I am so happy you found me, and I hope that you find my memoirs useful, refreshing, and inspirational.  I am a very down to earth person who has a genuine love for mankind, so if there is anything you want to ask, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. If there is something I've written that you disagree with, speak up!  I want to be dynamic and engaging, otherwise, what's the point! I are here to live my truth just doing what I love, and I hope (without consequence or fear) that you will love my style too.  Happy traveling you Rambling Nomads. Eat. Travel. Repeat.

Travel Resources

I've been to some magical places and seen some amazing things. From sleeping in a tent on the Serengeti during the Great Migration to walking the red carpet at the World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards in Melbourne, to swimming with sting rays in Bora Bora.

A Different Mentality

Lifestyle Advice: Read The 4-Hour Work Week then pick up a copy of 'Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart'

Fashion Advice: Confidence is in character not expensive labels.

I focus on what's working.  If I've written about it, it's worth your time! I'm a fan not a critic.
