Quit Your Job With Eagle Creek

Lisa Marie Jackson is the third of six lucky winners who get to travel anywhere in the world, courtesy of adventure travel gear brand Eagle Creek. She believes that tourists should make an effort to leave a place in better condition that they found it and one of the ways she wants to make a difference is to be able to teach marketing and entrepreneurship.

Her journey starts in Lisbon, Portugal, before travelling to Morocco, connecting with youth interested in entrepreneurship along the way. She said, “Working with teens is extremely rewarding, you’ll never be the same after talking to and working with teens from other places. I hope to discover another side of me, getting closer to self-actualization and becoming a better person through the people I meet while traveling.”

Eagle Creek launched the ‘Quit Your Job and Travel‘ contest to award six working professionals around the USA the chance to travel anywhere in the world after learning that 700m vacation hours go unused each year. As travellers themselves, they believe that ‘travel can enhance your life and research proves traveling makes you a better worker, and even twice as likely to get a raise.’

Director of Marketing Monica Rigali added, “Lisa Marie is a perfect QYJ ambassador for Eagle Creek. Her mission to pay it forward, and leaving destinations better than she found them is admirable and aligns perfectly with Eagle Creek’s ethos. We’re excited to help Lisa Marie help those who need it.”
