Episode 13: Success, My Son, and Escaping the Boxed Life
Featuring Bionca Smith, “Off the Grid with a Kid”
Bionca Smith was living a comfortable life that most people would define as successful - a business where she created her own schedule and could work from home, a comfortable place to live, a new car, and a 9-year-old son she adores. But in her success, she still felt boxed in - by her environment, by debt, and by the constraints of a more traditional lifestyle.
So she did something about it. She gave herself 30 days to move out of her apartment with her son with one goal in mind: travel the world together.
In under a year, this vision has led them to several continents and now into a vintage Ford conversion van as they travel the States. In her zeal for a more spontaneous, connected life with her son, Bionca let go of many things - but what she gained in return is her own definition of success.
Bionca wrote a book on overcoming life challenges titled Promise to Prosper. Read it now on iBook →
