About Me

Hi, I’m Elaina and I want to help you live life on your terms, find a career you love, and travel as often as you want. These are the best years of your life and you deserve to be FREE! 

 

I’ve lived, worked, and traveled to more than 60 countries, including some pretty off-the-beaten path destinations like Mongolia, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Paraguay. I lived out of a suitcase as a full-time nomad for 5.5 years, ever since leaving my management consulting gig in New York in 2013. You can read my full story here. I’m now living my dream, settled in Bali, Indonesia, fully independent and working happily on projects that support my deepest passion! 

 

What makes my story unique is that I’ve traveled AND built a professional career, working for companies like IBM and Uber over the years. I’ve also spent long stretches of time freelancing and traveling adventurously through South America, Asia, and Africa. I now make my living helping others break out of ordinary living and get clear on their mission in life. I get paid to help people MANIFEST THEIR DREAMS like I did — how cool is that?  

 

I write about self-development, digital nomadism, charting unconventional life paths, finding jobs overseas, pursuing long-term travel, and living purposefully in a fast-paced, confusing world. There’s simply no one-size-fits-all model for creating a life you love. I’ve always done things a bit differently and I think there are SO many feasible ways for people to live “off the beaten path”. I hope my blog lets you see what’s both possible and practical.  

 

I started this blog because I want to help you find an exciting career, travel the world, break the norms, and develop yourself both personally and professionally. Drop me a line at elaina@lifebefore30.com or apply to work with me directly! 

Work With Me

Hey friend, thanks for finding me!

 

I’m sure there’s a reason you landed here. Maybe we’re meant to work together and your whole life is about to flip upside down… That tends to happen with my clients as they transform from the inside out.

 

I work with extraordinary, brave, and self-inquiring souls who are ready to do the inner work required to launch them into the next huge chapter of their life. I work with people who are willing and ready to wake up and become more alive and aligned than ever before! 

 

Does any of this sound like you?

  • Successful on paper but not fulfilled inside
  • Feeling like you’re working so hard but not getting anywhere
  • Knowing you’re destined to do something besides what you’re doing right now, yet you don’t know what it is
  • Watching other people have the things you want and know you can get: money, jobs, relationships, adventure, etc.
  • Feeling alone because you know you’re different
  • Tired of superficial connection around you, craving more DEPTH in every part of your life
  • You’re restless in your pursuit of self-growth and inquiry 
  • Realize you have some self-imposed limits or unconscious beliefs that are holding you back and you’d love to uncover those and kick them to the curb
  • Confused or anxious about life in some way
  • At a turning point in life 
  • Exhausted, from putting up with things that just aren’t in your highest 
  • Not feeling in your full power in work and relationships, perhaps not fully understanding your own self-worth 
  • Money issues
  • Difficulty coming up with the right vision of your ideal future 

Would you rather feel more like this? 

  • Absolutely LIT UP by what you are doing
  • Constantly having breakthroughs and ah-ha moments
  • Knowing you’re on the right path in life
  • Fully stepped into the next-level you
  • Connected to a sense of purpose and meaning
  • Deeper, rewarding connection to self and others
  • More ease and flow in work, life, and relationships
  • Master of your own universe — equipped with the tools to do deep inner work
  • Clarity about the future, acceptance of the past
  • TRUST in knowing you’re doing exactly the right thing at all times?

…Or maybe you just want to do more DEEP soul-level exploration and transformation and just know you’d find that with me (from one soul-searching, deep-diving, spirit warrior to another, I got you). 

 

I currently have two slots left on my coaching roster! Are you ready to stop going it alone in your life and seek support from someone who’s been there, gets you, and will help capacitate you with the tools you need to change not only WHAT you’re doing in life, but HOW you’re living live, HOW you’re showing up in the world, and HOW you’re feeling about what you’re doing.

 

If you are like yes, that’s what matters in life! That’s what I want to focus on! That’s the gift I’m ready to give myself! — then we are a good match.

 

My 90-Day Life Transformation From the Inside Out program includes:

  • 12 1:1 deep dive sessions with me (video calls on Zoom from anywhere in the world, 1 call per week every week for 3 months) 
  • Access to my full online course Escape the Matrix 
  • Membership in a secret Facebook group with other amazing, soul-searching, driven, and anything-but-ordinary clients
  • 30 Days dedicated to deepening your relationship to your self
  • 30 Days dedicated to harmonizing your relationship to others
  • 30 Days dedicated to expanding your relationship to spirit/your connection to EVERYTHING
  • Personalized homework assignments between every session
  • Extensive resource and reading list 
  • Access to my personal network (where applicable) 
  • Accountability every step of the way

 

You can read more about my story and testimonials from my clients below, but if you already think you’re ready to work with me, let’s hop on a call and see if that’s the case! 

 

 

Six years ago, I changed my whole life in 30 days. I scored the job of my dreams, quit my job in New York, sold everything I owned, moved to West Africa, and never looked back. Read about that first flying leap into the unknown here

  • Had 2 dream jobs traveling internationally in management roles for major companies, including Uber 
  • Lived in and traveled to over 60 countries!
  • Traveled for over 3 years professionally, paid by companies to live abroad
  • Traveled independently for 14 months through all of Asia, India, and Europe as a freelancer
  • Left my last job with Uber in 2017 and haven’t gone back to working for someone else
  • Moved to Bali
  • Started my own small business 
  • Make my home between India, Bali, and the USA
  • Gotten deeply connected to my purpose
  • Had a profound spiritual awakening
  • Done an insane amount of self-healing and inner work

What do people say about working with me?

 

 

“With keen insights, Elaina challenged me to cut through the complex decision-making landscape to identify my core interests and passions. She pressed me to honestly reflect on the direction I want to take my career and provided a framework for working through the process. She also offered useful tools for pursuing the job I truly want. And maybe most of all, she helped me to shake off the anxiety of pursuing my goals, especially the risky ones, always with enthusiastic encouragement rooted in her own experiences.  I couldn’t recommend Elaina’s coaching services more highly.” — Ben M., Washington, D.C., USA

 

 

“I worked with Elaina specifically to prepare myself for career transition to another industry and country. Her experience and enthusiasm initially piqued my interest, but I would stay her strongest abilities come from the concrete recommendations that she made to my professional network social media and resume. They helped me tremendously and I would recommend anyone who is serious about making a change to at least speak with her about their options. Career transitions are not impossible, with the right mindset, Elaina gives you the tools to make effective changes because she has been in your shoes.” — Pathana I., USA

 

 

“Elaina has provided me with sound advice on options for graduate schools, and helped me channel positive energy towards the accomplishment of my application. Elaina is very patient and focused, she helped me define my career goals and find the relevant graduate programme. Working with Elaina opened my mind to options I would never have considered otherwise, and honed my writing skills for college applications. I was recently accepted into a graduate programme in my field of interest, with a scholarship. I could not have done it without Elaina and highly recommend consulting her if you have reached a turning point in your career.” — Rachida A., Switzlerland

 

 

“My first session with Elaina was very helpful. It helped me think more about the steps I need to take to reach my short and long-term goals. I am looking forward to seeing how implementing the advice she gave me will help me reach my goals.” — Savannah C., North Carolina

 

 

“The coaching session with Elaina helped me to realize some blind spots I didn’t see before in job hunting strategies, resume construction, and social media presence. Her opinion is very on point. Elaina went through rigorous recruiting processes only a few years ago so her insight is very updated. In addition, I am very pleasantly surprised by her effort to introduce me to her network. Overall I found the coaching session very beneficial.” — Kenny Xi Chen, Vancouver, Canada

 

“I already felt like I had received my money’s worth while answering the preliminary questions Elaina asked me to tackle, even before our Skype call. She has you come up with answers to tough and necessary questions, which can make all the difference. Elaina was incredibly professional and helpful throughout our session, and I look forward to another!” — Melissa W., USA
