If you could walk away from your current job, what would you do instead?
Margaret Roach traded in the fast lane for a dirt road. She left the glamour of New York City and her job as editorial director of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and took up organic gardening. She writes "A Way to Garden" blog that inspires others to coexist with nature and live close to the earth.
As she describes it, "She went from She Who Lives in the World to She Who Lives in the Woods." She pulled her own rug out from under herself. She had to be still and listen to that voice within to forge a new path.
She's loving her new life. You can read about it in her book, "And I Shall Have Some Peace There: Trading in the fast lane for my own dirt road."
What would it mean to live as your authentic, true self? Find out.

As Mark Twain said, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
The boat leaves on Wednesday at 7.
