One Year of Family Travel Interviews

As 2016 comes to a close, I want to wish you an amazing new year and also give you a short guide through one full year of amazing family travel interviews.

In this episode, I walk through one family travel interview at a time. I’ve learned a lot from my guests, and I stop on some of these family travel interviews to talk about a few things I’ve learned from guests. There are a few excerpts, as well. I hope you find these family travel interviews and conversations as inspiring and useful as I do.

Over half of the guests on Epic Education Radio are traveling for extended periods of time. Some are traveling slow, staying in one place for long periods of time. Others work online as they go. Then there are many who are traveling indefinitely, or for a set amount of years. The below two family travel interviews are just the tip of the iceberg.
