Claire Thomas recently hit the road in a 4x4 Sprinter with her partner, Jared. Over the years, she has created a powerful community by sharing all about her health (both mental & physical), fitness and overall wellness. She opens up about what got her on this journey and how much she enjoys helping others now. We talk van life, relationships, health and much more! Follow her @clairepthomas & support her (and yourself) by checking out some of her guides!
Christian Schaffer lived and traveled in her Nissan Xterra while saving up enough money to buy and convert a Promaster. She is another solo woman traveling full-time and has so much knowledge to share about working with brands and creating an online business. We talk safety, social media and so much more!
Nat & Abi from Let's Play Ride & Seek sit down with us to share what lead them to van life, if they've found community while traveling, how their dogs adjusted to the new lifestyle & how they hustle on the road for remote income! Check them out @letsplayrideandseek & @vanlifepride !
Eamon & Bec have been traveling the world in their Sprinter van, Trinity while filming everything for their Youtube community.

We even get to meet the infamous Bob! Follow them: @eamonandbec or watch their Youtube channel: Eamon & Bec
It feels so overwhelming to look at van life and wonder... HOW DO I GET THERE?! It seems like a far off dream, right? Well here are some actionable steps to take to get you there. Let's talk from house & 9-5 job to traveling the world in your converted van.
I can't be fake like overnight parking is on my mind right now. I'm a human going through some thangs. So that's what I'm choosing to share. I learned in therapy that trauma can be remembered in your body even better than it is in your mind. Also, white privilege on the road is super real. Lastly, hi hello I'm starting a coffee brand. Random episode? Yes. Helpful? Hopefully.
It's been awhile since I just sat down & chatted with you about mental health, anxiety & all things my brain. I wanted to share everything that has been going on with me lately, what I have done to drastically decrease my *social* anxiety (general anxiety will always be there, whaddup) and why I have fallen in love with therapy. ALSO how does van life help my mental health?! Let's talk!
It's not all about big numbers or lots of "likes". It's about loving your mission so much that you want the whole damn world to hear it. When you're determined to share your message with the masses, you do care about growth. I can't promise you the results... That's on you. I can, however, tell you exactly what I did to get myself where I am today. I believe in you to do with that what you will.. We are all waiting to hear your voice.
After Lee & I discussed our break up, I thought it would be helpful to hear from two people who have been together for 30 years, my sweet parents. They bring us through their journey together starting at a nightclub. We listen to how they've moved through difficult times, come to accept the other person's flaws and continue choosing each other every day. This is a *real* love story... imperfect & all.
