Live Interview Tuesday October 25th - Mike Marriner from Roadtrip Nation

Join me Tuesday, October 25th, for another live and interactive webinar with Mike Marriner co-founder of Roadtrip Nation. "Roadtrip Nation began in 2001 as an idea Mike, Nathan, Brian and Amanda, four friends fresh out of college, formed when they were not sure what to do with their lives. Initially, the scope of the plan was relatively small – climb aboard an old RV, paint it green, and traverse the country with the purpose of interviewing people who inspired them by living lives that centered around what was meaningful to them. Along the way, the four realized that the conversations that they were having on the road could not remain within the confines of their own RV, but held relevancy that could be shared with a world that was losing the know-how of living lives that pulse on personal passion rather than someone else’s expectations." Roadtrip Nation now helps students take education out of classrooms and into the real world by encouraging them to find what they love, gather a team to interview people that inspire them in order to learn from their stories, and then to share these experiences with others.
