Living Out of a Van While Working for Apple with Lauren Poillon and Katie Humphrey | Ep. 6

"You don't have to plan every single minute of your life."

Lauren Poillon (@laurenpoillon) and Katie Humphrey (@kt_humphrey) took working remotely to a whole new level when they decided to rent a van and travel the U.S. for over 5 months, all while managing global supply chains for Apple.

A journey that was supposed to last only a month, extended into nearly half a year. We had the @vanlife__bestlife girls on the show to reflect on their highs and lows, the friends they made along the way, and the lessons they learned from their adventure.

Lauren and Katie both are graduates of Pennsylvania State University. Katie previously worked for Under Armor and Lauren interned with SpaceX.
