• A self-mapped guide to creating a rewarding and satisfying work life

Roadtrip Nation, based in Costa Mesa, was founded by Nathan Gebhard, Mike Marriner, and Brian McAllister in 2001, and has grown into a national career exploration movement, educational organization, and PBS series.

Since its original publication in 2015, the team at Roadtrip Nation has continued to travel the world and interview accomplished individuals about their path to success.

• A great gift for recent college graduates, interns, or anyone questioning their career path and in need of advice and a fresh perspective
• Useful as a resource for career advisers, educators, and companies who want to foster an engaged workforce

About the Author

Roadtrip Nation started when fresh-out-of-college grads Nathan Gebhard, Mike Marriner, and Brian McAllister hit the road in a beat-up RV to interview people who had forged livelihoods doing what they love. Almost two decades later, Roadtrip Nation has grown into a long-running public television series, a nonprofit career exploration organization, and a movement of people committed to living lives true to their interests.
