Wheels and Wonders: Balancing Motherhood, Entrepreneurship, and RV Adventures- Conversation with Brooke Happe
Show Notes

Brooke and I got a chance to sit down and talk about transitioning from a career that feels like a forever, starting a new business from a passion project, and choosing to live life as a family in a different lane (In an RV!). If you are a mother who is feeling a pull to do something differently but not seeing how you can make it work, take a listen. Brooke is a beautiful example of trusting her intuition and bringing dreams to live while living in the moment.

In 2015, Brooke Happe stepped away from her dream job.  She was practicing as a Doctorate in Physical Therapy and was working in the career she had spent a decade training for. But with two young kids at home and another on the way, she realized her heart was yearning to be home with my family. Right before her daughter was born, she left her job and became a full-time mom. 

In 2016, she started a business without meaning to.  She started crocheting to keep her hands strong, intending to go back to practice one day. Then she realized the hat she designed to hide her greasy mom hair could help other moms feel put together too. 

 When people started asking where she got my slouch hat, she tarted selling the beanies locally. b.e.happe was born. 

In 2019 Brooke knew her kiddos weren’t going to be kids forever. But instead of spending time together, they felt stuck in the monotony of their daily routines. That’s when Brooke and her husband sold their home and all their belongings and moved into a 41ft 5th wheel and hit the road full time.

Brooke and I got a chance to sit down and talk about walking away from a career that feels like a forever, starting a new business from a passion project, and choosing to live life as a family in a different lane  (In an RV!). If you are a mother who is feeling a pull to do something differently but not seeing how you can make it work, take a listen. Brooke is a beautiful example of trusting her intuition and living life in the moment.
