OC Family chucks it all and moves to Belize to reconnect in "Freeways to Flip-Flops" book
What do you do when life in sunny Southern California starts to seem plastic, materialistic and just plain hellish? For Sonia and Duke Marsh, the answer was to sell their worldly goods and move to the Central American island of Belize.
Today, back in the United States after her family’s adventure in Belize, Sonia has chronicled her story in Freeways to Flip-Flops: A Family’s Year of Gutsy Living on a Tropical Island. The book will be released on August 21st and launched on August 30th at Laguna Beach Books, 6pm-7:30pm, 1200 S. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, 92651.
Sonia also is a speaker who guides and motivates others to get out of their comfort zone, take a risk and pursue their gutsy dreams. She writes the Gutsy Living blog at http://www.soniamarsh.com and created the popular "My Gutsy Story" series, now an e-book that celebrates inspiring and life-changing experiences.
Sonia is available for interviews and speaking engagements on a variety of topics:
