Note from the founder:
The concept for New Trailblazers came from my own quest for inspiration and a desire to live more fully. On my journey I found that I am most inspired by visionary people who have taken leaps of faith and ventured into un-chartered territories to pursue their passions. They are the New Trailblazers of our time.
This venue features their stories and interviews which primarily focus on inspired travel and creative enterprise to inspire and ignite the adventurous spirit in us all. - Stacy Matthews
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things
you didn’t do than the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain
The New Trailblazers team is dedicated to producing quality writing and rich visual imagery to give life to our features.
