What is the Paradise Pursuit about?
The Paradise Pursuit helps creative people imagine their way to the perfect slice of paradise and then establish a strategy to make that paradise their own.
Our concept is based on the idea that creative people with an entrepreneurial spirit can find a place where all the things they love and are inspired by exist, along with the opportunity to successfully pursue their creative ambitions.
No matter how small a budget, how simple the aspiration and how unique the talent and interests of each person, the world is big enough to accommodate.
For us, paradise is about more than beaches and warm weather. It's about being in the place that feeds your spirit and empowers you to be more of yourself, whether you're looking to relocate entirely or acquire a vacation property that allows you to explore your ambitions.
During the last fifteen years of traveling, I visited local real estate offices everywhere I went. I saw romantic Italian villas and pictured my life there, I visited beachfront condos in the south of France and imagined a permanent glass of wine in my hand. I drafted a life in Portugal, Nicaragua, Australia, Spain, Scotland and many more.
As I went, I started to build a list of all the things I would find in my perfect place. After almost 40 countries, I started looking for something that fit my list of criteria.
I was extremely specific about what I wanted but completely open minded about where I would find it.
Since then, I have become the proud owner of a beautiful old house on a tropical island with enough space to accommodate guests, plenty of room for an art studio, gallery and cafe, a separate building to run a b&b and all less than two blocks from the water's edge. Most importantly, I did it on an extremely tight budget. The world is varied enough that no matter your budget, anything is possible.
As someone who spends her winters in the Caribbean within a town that boasts her favorite things, this is a gift I would love to help you give yourself
