The Situation

Amazing Outdoor AdventureI’m just a single woman with 3 dogs, who loves the outdoors, spent most of my adult life working in it, and also crossed into other areas of business that deeply broadened my knowledge and expertise beyond the hunt-fish-camp business arena.

Needless to say I’ve been into a routine for a number of years that has provided me a decent living, an opportunity to travel beautiful south west Minnesota, and work with an amazing collection of people whom I cherish beyond being customers and colleagues. I wouldn’t trade my life for anything.  I face the challenges put forth to me each day with a can-do attitude, and give my best to everyone and in everything I do.  The downside is a little disparity between what I want to accomplish, and what I actually can. Work comes first and everything else has to fall in place after.  It’s the routine I’ve come to accept.  Until now.  Did I hear someone say it’s time for an adventure?

What If?

Bucket of Limitless PossibilitiesFirst quarter 2012 proved to be especially challenging for me. An injury I endured all fall wasn’t getting any better, resulting in Doctor visits and treatments that ended up going on for months. So did the bills.

Then my prized hunting partner–the four-legged man of the house–became very ill, almost died, and required hundreds of dollars of treatment and surgery to bring him back to prime condition.

Then one of my sweet little Lhasa girls went lame with a ruptured ACL and required surgery followed by months of recovery–and bills.  Throughout this chaos the demands of work remained constant.  The demands of my personal life remained unaddressed.  If this was any indication of what was in store for me the rest of the year…..

Then in second quarter, the epiphany came.  WHAT IF?  What if I only had 5 years left?  What if I only had a year left?  What if this is my boys last good year in the field?  It jolted me into a new perspective.  Would I have any regrets?  I realized I was at a crossroads and didn’t like what I saw.

Time for a bucket list, and a plan.  We get one pass through life and everything wonderful about it is there for us if we choose to go get it.  The possibilities are endless!

Tips and Tricks, Gear and Gadgets and Getaways Ohhh My!

Whats NewsWhen it comes to the outdoors, there are times when I have to have the latest whatsit whizmo deelie, and other times when I am not giving up until I create some nutty homemade contraption on my own.  Admittedly, sometimes, my ideas need a little massage….but there are plenty of times when I’m pure genius.  (ok maybe not exactly genius).  If it’s new to me, and I’ve tried it with great success, this is where you’ll hear about it.

In addition, this is where upcoming opportunities and adventures will be listed, news and events.  Someone once said “if you build it, they will come”.    Calling all adventurers!

Diary of a Food Baby

Killer Cookin PR Brady AdventuresThere’s food and then there’s food.

Fast food.  Not my idea of a good time.  Been there and done that. And with that routine came less energy, more pounds, and decreased health.

I’m a food baby.  I love food.  My idea of food is real home cooked food, and I love to make it.  Dad was a baker, and also big into ethnic cooking from his roots in the Ukraine.  He taught me well.  Being the creative person that I am, now I dabble with an array cooking techniques of my own, often with his wonderful influence.

People tell me I’m a good cook.  I’ve made meals for groups of 150 people.  Some of my favorite dishes are of course …come to think of it, what food isn’t a favorite? And the best twist is to be able to serve something up from the wild that I dispatched myself.

This space is reserved for fellow foodies, to enjoy a new spin on an old favorite or a new spin on what could be a new favorite!

The Outdoors Way

Words from Wild PR Brady AdventuresIf you need time in the outdoors like you need air to breathe, you know where I’m coming from.  If you don’t,  perhaps this section will help you better understand those of us who do.  Or maybe inspire you to become one of us. This space is saved to describe and express those “never enough” moments that bring me back to what matters most.

I’m Just Sayin’…

Girl Outdoors PR Brady AdventuresWhile this page is referred to as Girl Outdoors it isn’t necessarily restricted to girls only.  I don’t tend to have many traditional girl-like interests, but we ladies stick together regardless of our personal interests, because, well that’s what we do. Some of my female friends struggle to understand my passion for the outdoors, and sometimes they don’t understand my career oriented passion either.  In actuality, the same could be said of men.

I’m often asked.  “Where do you get your strength?”  At the end of the day, it all comes down to being ok with who you are, where you are, and why you are.  Having faith.  Trusting the system.  Believing.  Getting back up again, and again.  All that and a pot of coffee is usually a good start for me.

Whether it’s a home life, health, social or business setting, we can face some hard core challenges.  And how many of us were sent out into the world with an Easy button to help with those trying times?

I’m a firm believer that with knowledge comes power.  This space is reserved for the female persuasion in particular, and speaks primarily to those things we can identify with, along with gentle reminders that “you’ve got the power.”    I’m just sayin’…

Business Tidbits, Acumen and Observations

Its Just BusinessSome people are blessed with a simplified life.  I’m not really one of those people.  My background and interests are very diverse.  I’ve been engaged in many aspects of business over the years, have learned many things, shared a few ideas, made some mistakes, made some progress, made some money, and helped some folks along the way.

I bring to the table a level of business acumen that is not often seen today.  I commit, I own, I get results.  I subscribe to being a lifelong learner.  One of the things I enjoy most is helping others reach their potential—it often helps me to get closer to mine as well!  Topics that you may see on this page include things like Best Practices, The Black Box, Conflict and Resolution, Marketing Magic, Customer Service Solutions, Behavior in Business, Forward Thinking for Success Today.
