Working from home is fun. You can wear your pajamas all day, listen to Metallica on full blast, and make funny faces at your boss as she drones on during a conference call. But there is a limit to how much fun you can have cooped up in your living room. What if - instead of being confined to your house - you traveled across America while working instead?

That’s what Luke Newton (keynote speaker at the October 18 IUPUI Talent Network Forum) did. In his words:

“My wife and I sold our home and possessions, bought a 1976 Airstream that we renovated, and took to the road. For two years we traveled full-time across the country while working completely remote visiting over 20 states, dozens of beaches, mountains, National Parks, and ‘world’s biggest’ sites along the way. During the earliest beginnings of work/life integration we tested the limits of the remote workforce - using an array of saas solutions that enabled me to manage my teams and clients. For 2 years we were able to both create, execute, and manage complex marketing campaigns for some of the world’s largest brands from wherever I was at the moment. Some of my largest customers I never once met in person.”
