Photo by Carina Retaliack Tiffiney Credits two women with making her family's new venture a reality -- Bagby and Amy Schulz, the woman behind the entrepreneurial classes at Feather River College. Both Katie Bagby and Tfffiney took her courses, and members of Schulz's current class were in the audience. "I'm honored to be at Katie's launch," Schulz said. "Tonight is about taking a dream and running with it." Schulz's classes prepare people to become their own boss -- from writing an effective business plan, to handling finances, to marketing their own products and services. She also offers a class devoted to virtual entrepreneurship. "Everything we do is applied to your own business," Schulz said. Wild Child Travels While Diego and Tiffiney knew that their current lifestyle wasn't working-- both admit to having "'itchy feet" -- they didn't know if it would be possible to travel with children and earn a living. So they began to research what others were doing, especially those who had children. The couple found inspiration in the Vogel family, who had bicycled from Alaska to Argentina and, although Tiffiney labeled it "my personal idea of hell," it proved that families could follow their dreams and enjoy an alternative lifestyle. There were others as well, including the Gilbert family, who were just named National Geographic's Travelers of the Year. The Gilberts began traveling in 2008 by bicycle and haven't stopped. The couple and their children, Cole, 4, and Stella, 20 months, are temporarily staying in Barcelona, where the Lozanos will join them in early November. "They have become our mentors," Tiffiney said of the couple. The Gilberts create videos and document their travels to support their lifestyle. They recently completed "The Wireless Generation," a documentary about people who quit their jobs to travel. The Lozano children, Jaxon, 5, and Serafina, 3, will spend their time on a boat rather than a bike. When the family arrives in Barcelona, Diego and Tiffiney will begin~ looking for the appropriate vessel to take them on their travels. As for how they are going to support their family, the pair plans to focus on their strengths and doing what they love. For Diego it is Videography and for Tiffiney it's writing. "We plan to tell the stories that make life meaningful," she said. Tiffiney admits that the : couple doesn't have a detailed business plan, but they are moving forward anyway. "The key to success is to start before you're ready," she said. Friends and family can follow the Lozanos' progress on their website, wildchildtravels.com.
