Find Work You Love – Lessons Learned from Roadtrip Nation

Find work you love –  everyone wants it. But how do  you figure out who you are, what you love and how to make your dreams reality?

Roadtrip Nation started in 2001 when three friends fresh out of college weren’t sure what to do with their lives. Their solution? To road-trip around the country and ask people who do what they love how they got to where they are today.

Determined to collect the advice of those leading fulfilling lives, Nathan, Mike, and Brian made cold-calls to people from a variety of careers and hit the road in a beat-up RV. Three months and 17,000 miles later, they had interviewed an eclectic group of 85 individuals, including: the CEO of Starbucks, the scientist who decoded the human genome, an Oscar-winning filmmaker, a Supreme Court justice, a lobsterman, educators, photographers, and many more who had connected their passions to their work.

The insights revealed in these conversations left an indelible mark, and it was the lessons learned on the road that led to the Roadtrip Nation movement dedicated to helping individuals define their own roads in life. I interview one of the founders, Nathan Gebhard, to find out what he’s learned along the way.
