West

DSC_1140

All indications are that we’re heading west. We’ve received a number of invitations for the fall to connect and participate in Outerblue conversations. It is such a thrill when you begin to see dreams take shape. Connections lead to conversations which lead to collaborations leading finally to contributions. These contributions make all the difference in the world. They are the first real glimpses of a reality that exists beyond our wildest dreams. Time to hit the road. Westward bound!

Why are we tripN?

DSC_1140

Someone has to take up this duty. Someone has to get this country back on the road to somewhere. Someone has to start tipping the scales and the service providers like only a roadtripN’er can or this whole situation may just get out of hand.

It is with this reasoning and the fact that we qualify as someones that we take up the mantle. Follow along if you dare, we are going tripN for America. May our mission be successful because failure is really not an alternative that any of us may wish to face.

Galleries

sunsets

theSpace Galleries are now opening everywhere. Sometimes, this is not as easily recognized as maybe it should be. Maybe, it is because we are just too busy to slow down for a moment and look out the window. However, if you have the chance to take a more leisurely little roadtripN tour around the areas and take in the sights, you’re going to see some masterpieces that are so good they’re unable to be fully captured. Hit the road, the galleries are open 24/7.

Sherpas

Sherpa

There is wisdom in going up the mountain with someone who has already made the climb and has an experienced compass. Whenever we come to that life pass where a change in direction is necessary, it would seem the best course of action would be to invite the help of a sherpa.

Can you imagine being an astronaut on your first space mission and being called upon to spacewalk outside the shuttle? Can you imagine if you hadn’t received any training in the simulator? What would you do?

Why is it that when life throws a man a curve that is comparable to spacewalking many men choose to walk out into the foreign unknown without seeking for someone who has been there and done that?

If we could offer any advice from our past mistakes, find a sherpa. Whenever you come to that life pass where a change in direction is imperative, find a sherpa.

And then? Head out! Let’s climb!

Sail

Boat

Setting sail for the Riviera and looking forward to the time on the beach and the opportunity to reflect on the rocks and the coves that helped shape the voyage. It used to be that we got a little agitated when we went and scoped the crash sites. Now, we smile and find a sense of depth from knowing we’d never be here in the cove had we not landed there as well. Grab a rope, feel the breeze, RoadtripN the high seas is ready to push out into the blue.

Translations to the Nations

Out making the rounds into the Silicon Bay and a conversation ensued. “I know you travel all across North America and the world, do you by chance know how to translate what we are doing to local cities in North America?”

It took a few minutes to take hold and then it hit us, we have the means to translate 28 languages. We do so for our clients all of the time. It is part of our services. Do other companies need our services?

It took a few minutes more for it to take hold again, after you translate a language you may need messengers. Wow, this is what we do. Maybe, we’ve been going about this all wrong? Maybe, there are more companies seeking our abilities to translate and carry their project messages outbound and local? This is what started us to go RoadtripN years ago. Maybe, we just missed the starting gate of language translation vs. project translation?

We’ve been translating projects around the globe for 20+ years. Perhaps, the next venture for us is to assist you in all of the languages that we’ve picked up along the way? Drop us a line if you have a need for language translation. We’re always ready to help you wherever you may be located.

Beta: Expedition Mach UP

Given the recent announcement of our Beta: Learning Com, we have another beta roadtripN ahead – Beta: Expedition Mach UP

We have to get the word out about Beta: Learning Com. We need to get our boots on the ground and share the news. We have to do this and while so doing have this activity pay for itself. It has to pay for itself or we will have to charge an arm and a leg for the learning communities. This is simply – “No bueno!”

Now the experts have told us to just do inbound marketing. Their guidance is that we just need to use blogs and tweets and inbound funnels and the like to get the word out. As we were listening to them and questioning how it all works and how does it proof up, they asked us if we knew of any sales teams they could work with that go outbound.

Go outbound? That’s a roadtripN dream!

We love to travel, hit the trade shows, make friends and engage clients face-to-face. We love it so much that we struggle to find time to share to the blog, or tweet, or check the funnels. We get so wound up going outbound that going inbound suffers. We can be weird like that.

So, here’s our plan just in case you have any interest in participating or referring us to one of your friends. We are hitting the road all across the U.S. to introduce our new Beta: Learning Com and to meet others who may want to join in the learning or start their own com. As we go, we are going to offer our abilities to translate English into 28 different languages and vice versa. As we go, we are also going to offer our abilities to meet and share what you may have going on with your business. We are open to seeing how this all shapes up.

The thing we keep hearing over and over and over is, we are really interested to have U.S. sales teams and representatives with boots on the ground and a ready vehicle to roll. And that’s us. We aren’t overly flashy. We aren’t exactly who all the experts would point to. We are however pretty solid when it comes to developing a crew that pays for itself. Practice makes towards perfection?

If you have an interest to participate, or if you need your services translated into local markets, or if you just need a letter translated to German, we’re you’re sales team with boots on the ground. Beta: Expedition Mach UP to share our Beta: Learning Coms hits the road February 10th. Want to thumb a lift?

Beta: Learning Com

After years of drafting and sketching, the beta group of learning communities are now enrolling for the first spring semester of theSpace. To share that we are over the moon is an understatement. As readers of our travelers blog know, we have been out and about roadtripN this concept for years. The ups and downs and turns and twists of this road to finally arrive here have been adventurous to say the least. Thanks for riding along with us and helping to see us to this destination.

So, now we are here – what’s next?

It looks like the first four beta groups of learning to be formed are as diverse as our fellow roadtrippers.

First Semester Offerings:

– Chemistry
– Music
– Physical Training
– Dog Training

If any of these subjects interest you, drop us a line. Our group leaders are excited to share their knowledge on these subjects and develop communities that explore these interests in very practical and interactive ways.

Again, WOW! Just as we were puttering to a near stop, the idea that applying ourselves to search further into the unknown of our dreams proved itself yet once more. This is the way of learning moving into the future. Come and see for yourselves if you would like. We welcome you to test our beta: learning com and look forward to seeing where else this may lead.
