And Now I'm Yours

Before the boom of #DigitalNomads, Sunni VonMutius lived a nomadic lifestyle. After a very early retirement, Sunni packed her life in a suitcase, sold her home, and hit the road, intending to make meaningful connections and simply to see what life on the road had to offer her.

During her nomadic adventures, Sunni traveled the world staying sharing space with others – some she knew well, some she wanted to know better and others she had never met before! It was quite a ride. n

Playing in Energy

A nomadic lifestyle doesn't come cheap; as a result, Sunni learned that money was just one form of exchanging energy. In order to become the catalyst for others, she quickly learned unconventional ways of exchanging energy. As a result, she was able to trade $95,000 of goods simply by bartering.

Outgoing Introvert

In due time Sunni learned more about herself than she ever thought possible. She soon found out that she was not an extrovert but rather an outgoing introvert (just like our host, Heather Vickery!). She discovered her deep-seeded need for regular recharging and the power she held when she exchanged energy.

Chosen Family

Finally ready to settle down and reclaim a home of her own, Sunni had a tough decision to make, “where was home?” Having made new families worldwide, she had to look inside and decide which location she would call home. After much deliberation, Sunni moved back to Orlando where she eventually, started a family of her own with her husband, Kirk, and their adorable child, Alex (affectionately called “Nugget”.”

Sunni brings so much love, light, and feel-good energy into a room (in person or virtual). Trust us, you're going to want to connect with her!

Giving is Good

Sunni supports the Zebra Coalition because they hold space for LGBTQ+ youth. Sunni believes that all people should have support as they transition into adulthood, and the Zebra Coalition provides this support to transgender kids who have been kicked out of their homes when they come out. The mission of Zebra Coalition is to support and inspire LGBTQ+ youth. Zebra Coalition is a network of organizations, which provide services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and all youth (LGBTQ+) ages 13 – 24. The Coalition assists young people facing homelessness, bullying, isolation from their families, and physical, sexual, and drug abuse with individualized programs to guide them to recovery and stability.

"When you add me to a situation the energy changes."
