PEOPLE Behind the Places

By Steven Rea

Behind every place is a story and behind every story are the people. Thank you for joining our conversation with the PEOPLE Behind the Places, sponsored by BE Local. We’ll explore their lives, inspirations, challenges, lessons learned and anything interesting in between. What can we learn of how they craft a good life pursuing their passion and sharing it with the world in the places we love? For those natural places which no person can claim creation of, we’ll talk with those intimately familiar with them, share experiences and learn how we can experience and preserve them. BE Local introduces the Art of Experience Curation to inspire the lives of people through sharing experiences uniquely matched for them and simplifying their travel planning process. Please subscribe and join us on this journey of exploring the PEOPLE Behind the Places.
