If we told you that it’s possible to have a family, run a profitable business, home-school your kids, AND travel the world all at the same time – you’d probably think we’re crazy.
After all, it’s easy to feel that one of the downsides of being successful in business, or raising your family, is that you can’t travel for extended periods, and you must stay in one place.
That is why today’s guest, Rachel Denning, is so interesting! Not only are she and her husband both running successful businesses, they have taken a different approach to education by World Schooling their family of six kids at the same time as travelling the world. Together the family have been to 17 countries, they love to travel and experience things and her kids have developed a wonderful love of learning.
Listen in to find out how Rachel and her husband Greg started out on their World School, traveling journey, and how they successfully run their businesses and take care of their kids’ education while moving to a new country every couple of months!
