Your Bio: 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. Four years, 14 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. They are both following their interests on the road, as the planet has been transformed into their classroom. Often you will hear Lainie say “we are blessed to be accidental unschoolers” and has become and an advocate for “life learning” at any age. In fact, Lainie & Miro have taken this philosophy to heart and are producing a family and teen oriented unschooling retreat in Peru called Project Unschool Peru.  (ProjectUnschoolPeru.com)  The duo describe their greatest accomplishment as the ability to participate in the world without fear. 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 can’t help but to naturally learn along the way.

cool insight on Lainie’s last name ..
talking about how mellow their session was at the homeschool conference. and how desperately that is needed. so Lainine shared that she wasn’t that mellow 5 years ago.. and added:
It’s liberation, actually. That’s why I (legally) changed my name to Liberti (Liberty) I liked the “i” better.
love that.
