Working Mom, Traveling Mom With Carol Cain: The Home Hour Episode 51

Carol Cain, Girl Gone Travel, podcast
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel for a living? What if it meant taking your kids on exotic trips – and sometimes, leaving them home so you could do your job?

Building a career as a travel writer takes a lot of work and determination…and when you have a family, it also requires attention to the delicate balance between your career and what’s going on at home. Today I’m thrilled to talk to Carol Cain of about what’s really involved in being a travel writer with kids, how she keeps her kids involved in her career (and keeps them on board when they need to stay behind,) how she and her spouse keep the home fires burning while she’s away, and how she evolved her line presence from “mom blogger” to “travel blogger.” We also talk about parenting teens, buying a new house, and more!

PS: In the show’s intro I mentioned Live: Creating A Life You Love, a year-long e-course brought to you by Mandi Ehman from I’m thrilled to be this month’s guest host, writing and speaking about the topic of LOVE. If you could use a little more love in your life – or just want to take some time this year to focus on creating a more fulfilling life for yourself and your family – head over and sign up!
