Kim Frank, Episode 4, Part 1: a Passion for Writing

How she got from a motel apartment on the Jersey Shore to Sun Valley and joy.

No transcript...

In Part 1 of Episode 4, I talk to Kim Frank, an Idaho writer, explorer, and documentary filmmaker about how she got from her childhood on the Jersey Shore to Sun Valley and beyond. These days Kim is an award-winning writer working on a documentary film to tell the story of the largely unknown (in the West) human/Asian Elephant conflict on the border of India and Nepal.

Her memoir, Where the Forest Roars, will be out next January. It chronicles her transformation as she stepped up to help bring attention and awareness to the conflict. She's someone who isn't content to take well-worn paths in her career but is blazing her own way - building that new boat.

Her favorite quote is now mine: "We have two lives, the second one begins when we realize we only have one." Yes! For all of us living the carpe diem life (or wanting to), Kim’s a wicked smart inspiration with a big heart. I can’t wait for you to meet her.

A friend once told me, "Teri, you'll never meet anyone who doesn't know at least one thing you don't." It's true. Teri's Doing It! podcasts feature inspiring people from whom I've learned a lot. I hope the stories they tell do the same for you.
I'm a travel writer and podcaster who has realized that time is finite and I'm getting closer to the end than the beginning. Because I don't want to go out with a long, undone to-do list, I'm doing things these days I always wanted to do but hadn't made time for.
Join me. Hear from inspiring people who aren't letting grass grow under their feet no matter their age, who have found their passion and pursue it with all their hearts. And then go out and mark things off your to-do list.
