MOTM #266: State of the Union: Building Your Best Life with Skip and Jazz Johnson

Monday, December 21st, 2020

Well, friends… we made it. This is our final State of the Union episode of 2020, and I wanted to say thank you for sticking with me on this journey. We had a lot of incredible conversations and learned a ton, and I’m so happy to see that so many of my pals and colleagues are doing so well, even in the most uncertain of times.

To send of this series on a high note, I asked on Skip and Jazz Johnson to tell their inspiring story and to show you all how a couple of “proud millennial hippies” make their dreams of van-life and travel possible. 

Skip and Jazz wanted an unconventional life, so they created their own dream situation. Even without all the right answers or even knowing the first thing about life on the road, they built a tiny home on wheels and took off on the adventure of a lifetime. Skip and Jazz do what sets their soul on fire, and they won’t settle for anything less.
