It took Courtney Sanford moving to Seattle after college to start really appreciating the outdoors. But it turned out that Seattle wasn’t exactly the best place for her to do that. And before long, Courtney found herself packing up her Subaru and hitting the road.
As she traveled across the country, she had a huge “a-ha!” moment: “I started to realize the power of dabbling, and in trying a bunch of different things,” she says. “And also the importance of taking a pause and reflecting on what’s working and what’s not working.”
Eventually, the stars aligned: During an episode of the Adventurepreneur podcast, host Jeremy Jensen and Courtney’s best friend, life coach Sanni McCandless, talked about Sanni’s practice and her observation that while many people wanted to spend more time outside, they weren’t sure how to do it.
“They started talking about having a retreat,” Courtney says. “And eventually, the three of us came together with the idea of creating a three-day weekend that allows people to build a life that feels value-driven and also incorporates a lot of time outside.”
For two years, Outwild thrived—until, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic began. To keep their business viable, Courtney, Sanni, and Jeremy decided to take Outwild online. Within months, the Outwild Hub was born.
Today, members can join the Outwild Hub community for free. They can also register for a membership, priced at $150 a year, that includes access to monthly speaker and workshop series, early registration for in-person events, and more.
