Settle Down, Don’t Settle For with Linda Jämsén

Ep. 30

What are the different ways your life has been redirected? Our plans might not always work out, but usually because there is something better out there for us if we follow our heart. 

In this episode, I am so excited to be joined from across the world by Linda Jämsén. Originally from New York, Linda is an American expat living in Finland with her husband. You might be wondering how a New York girl ends up in Finland, and the answer is: true love. Linda’s book, Odyssey of Love: A Memoir of Seeking and Finding, explains her international search for love and the adventures that came with it. 

After Linda’s engagement unexpectedly ended, she sought out spiritual guidance where she was told that her future husband was overseas in Europe. Linda left everything behind, went on an international quest for love, and successfully met the love of her life. Throughout this episode, you will hear Linda’s story of how she went from a failed engagement to living abroad with her current husband, her spiritual journey, the details of her book, and more.  Linda’s journey is a reminder that life is too short to not follow our heart and I can’t wait for you to listen to our conversation.
