Life and Work with Karen Akpan

Today we’d like to introduce you to Karen Akpan.

Karen is a wife, mom, public speaker, writer, entrepreneur, and family travel expert who has traveled to over 30 countries with her six years old. Her love for travel and her mission to inspire and encourage parents to continue to travel the world even after having children led her to create The MOM Trotter. She is also the founder of Black Kids Do Travel which is an organization and a community created to bring about diversity in family travel and bridge the gap. On her blog, she writes about the importance of family travel through her quote “All Travel Is Travel,” as well as shares tips on homeschooling/world schooling and budget travel.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There have been lots of struggles along the way, especially starting out in a field that you don’t know much about. I started my blog initially for fun and then turned my passion into a business.

Don’t give up!!! It sounds cliche but there is so much truth in this.
Be consistent!! I didn’t see a change in my business until I became consistent.
