You're invited to meet author, Sonia Marsh and listen to her discuss her new book, "Freeways to Flip-Flops."
What do you do when life in sunny Southern California starts to seem plastic, materialistic and just plain hellish?
For Sonia and Duke Marsh, the answer was to sell their worldly goods and move to the Central American island of Belize, a third-world country without all the comforts -- or distractions -- of life in the developed world.
Sonia hopes the move will bring her shattered family back together. Instead, things begin to go wrong immediately. As the days turn into months, Sonia finds herself questioning the family’s decision to move on a nearly daily basis.
Today, back in the United States after her family’s adventure in Belize, Sonia has chronicled her story in Freeways to Flip-Flops: A Family’s Year of Gutsy Living on a Tropical Island. Her book is now available at Amazon.com and in bookstores.
Sonia also is a speaker who guides and motivates others to get out of their comfort zone, take a risk and pursue their gutsy dreams. She writes the Gutsy Living blog at http://www.soniamarsh.com and created the popular "My Gutsy Story" series, now an e-book that celebrates inspiring and life-changing experiences.
