Introducing the Original Roadtrip and Interview Archive

Kick off your journey with the story of the Original Roadtrip:

Roadtrip Nation started when its founders, Nathan, Mike, and Brian, weren’t sure what to do with their lives, so they went on a Roadtrip to learn the stories of Leaders who built lives around their passions. The conversations generated such powerful insights that the original roadtrippers decided to start Roadtrip Nation as a platform to share the stories of people who have defined their own roads.

The Interview Archive is a collection of all the stories Roadtrip Nation has gathered on the road over the years. It contains the stories of people who have pushed through roadblocks to create their livelihoods around their interests—everyone from CEOs of big companies to costume designers, magazine writers, biologists, chocolatiers, and beyond. You will see how successful people made life decisions, and then apply those insights to your own lives as you start to define your own roads.
