Remote Working from a Sailboat in the Gulf of Mexico

Meet Michelle Peacock. In June or 2016, she and her family moved onto a boat and started a new life. Their experiences with homeschooling and remote working will be interesting to anyone considering doing something similar.

Michelle and family dreamed of living and working on a sailboat for ten years before they actually took the leap. Here she talks about some of the challenges they've faced, as well as the rewards of a life at sea.

They were completely new to homeschooling, and she discusses how that has worked so far for her two sons. She also talks about battling seasickness, and what it's like to be with your family 24/7.

Anyone interested in remote working from a sailboat should tune in. And please share!
