Hi! We're Dona & Vibhu Athavaria

We’re passionate about helping families live out their dreams by building online businesses that revolve around their passions.

We're a tight-knit family unit with ties to Canada, India, and the US.  Travel and family have always been the most central pieces of our life, and for years, we'd dreamt of creating a lifestyle for ourselves that would allow us to travel the world, while still spending time with family spread across the globe.  We tried to make it work with Vibhu's career as a Software Engineer, but even working remotely, the 9-to-5 lifestyle didn't work for us. We craved so much more than the daily grind that we were stuck in.  Living to pay the bills and take a 2 week vacation each year, was not our idea of a well-lived life.

So in the summer of 2018, Vibhu finally said goodbye to his six-figure, full-health benefits job as a Silicon Valley engineer and we embarked on an entrepreneurial journey to figure out how to build online businesses that we loved.

We tried a lot of things, from blogging to drop shipping to affiliate marketing.  What we learned through that process was that time is just as valuable to us as money. And we weren't willing to spend 12+ hours a day hustling behind our laptops to make a few thousand dollars a month. Even in a gorgeous location, sitting poolside, if you're working all day, you're still not free.

Now we take travel slow. We like to spend a month or two (or six!) getting to know new places and communities. We are committed to forging lasting, deep relationships with the people we meet and love that our network of friends spans dozens of countries. Now we’re on a mission to hike, camp, and surf as many spots around the globe as we can. 

We’re 100 percent living our dream life.

We are committed to forging lasting, deep relationships with the people we meet and love that our network of friends spans dozens of countries. We spent many years in Northern California and British Columbia where surfing in Half Moon Bay, camping the Gulf Islands, and hiking portions of the Pacific Crest Trail were our normal. Now we’re on a mission to hike, camp, and surf as many spots around the globe as we can. 

We’re 100 percent living our dream life.
