"So what IS this SayYesMore thing anyway?"
It means different things to different people, but the interpretation that makes most sense to me is that it's a message to encourage us all to make positive life choices and challenge ourselves, using social media to bring people together in the real world, all with the backdrop of the great outdoors.
Pioneered by the trailblazer and adventurer that is Dave Cornthwaite, the YesTribe is a social enterprise that has grown from a loyal band of Facebook followers into a now global not-for-profit community dedicated to nudging people into finding out what they're really capable of.
We create events, spaces and situations that help people, ideas and mindsets blossom. Whether it's supporting brave decisions, encouraging adventurous thinking, finding (or creating) work that we love or simply designing a lifestyle that fits perfectly with our individual personalities and needs, we figure that if we look after ourselves and those around us and don't forget to have fun along the way, the world will be a much better place.
The SayYesMore team are a wonderfully driven, infectiously enthusiastic bunch of humans all undertaking and overcoming challenges of their own. I firmly encourage you to find out more about them, how SayYesMore has influenced them, and what it can do for you too. There is a huge Facebook following, including regional groups who regularly meet up for adventures - search for The Yes Tribe where you are certain to find a warm welcome.
I wrote a little post about it here and you can follow my own adventures on my personal Instagram page at www.instagram.com/gemmabrunton
