Episode Notes

Sometimes you need the support of other people, strangers even, to make your dreams a reality. Other people who’ve gone before you, who know the pitfalls and who have sage advice to help you on your way.

That’s how I found Jason Jenkins and the Epic Education podcast. On his show, Jason speaks to families who’ve taken the bold decision to travel together, often full time, each with their own recipe to make it work for them.

It's fascinating that what feels like balance to one family doesn’t feel like balance to another. Every travelling family has their own wants, needs and appetites. I admit I was addicted to An Epic Education before we set off on our adventure, absorbing as much wisdom as I could.

This may not, of course, be your dream. But what I loved about talking to Jason was seeing how he and his family balance all their different wants and needs, something that I’ve been thinking a lot about recently.

How do you ensure you get your needs met and live a life that’s balanced for you whilst still respecting the needs of the other people who matter to you? What does work life balance look life when it has to work for you, your partner, your kids and whoever else is in your heart?
