Lainie Liberti is a recovering branding expert, who's 18 year career once focused on creating campaigns for green - eco business, non-profits & conscious business. In 2008, California's economy took a turn and Lainie decided to “be the change” instead of a victim. She and her then 9-year-old son, Miro began the process of redesigning their lives, with the dream of spending stress-free quality time together. After closing her business, selling and giving away all of their possessions, the pair hit the road for a permanent adventure in mid 2009. Five years, 15 countries and many personal changes later, Lainie & Miro continue to slow travel around the globe, living an inspired possession-free-lifestyle, volunteering and learning naturally. In fact, Lainie & Miro have taken this philosophy to heart and are producing a series of family and teen oriented retreats in Peru called Project World School Peru. They invite you to follow along as a single mom and her teen-age son live the history & culture of foreign lands, encounter amazing people, interact as global citizens, serve as volunteers, and naturally learn along the way at RaisingMiro.com.
