LOOTB Travels Out of the USA

Life Out of the Box Leaves USA

Our time back in the States has been wonderful. The goal here was to spread Life Out of the Box to more people in person and that’s exactly what we did. We gave presentations to universities throughout California & Arizona, we attended various events where we sold bracelets, we did several interviews for various media outlets and met with many awesome people about expanding LOOTB.

Along the way, we even got to cross the Mexico border and give school supplies to hundreds of kids in Nogales to fulfill the amount giving we needed to do to keep up with sales.

We gave ourselves this goal in the USA, because, like this week’s weekend wisdom says “Without a goal, you can’t score”.

Our goal of spreading Life Out of the Box, however, is a large one that we believe must grow beyond just one country. So, we have decided to take this goal and spread Life Out of the Box across the pond to Europe as well. We’re going to learn, explore, get inspired, share, meet new people and see new things. We are still in the start up phase of our business, however, and must therefore stick to our boot strapping budget in Europe. It won’t be easy with limited funds there, but we’re willing to do anything to make this business grow. Life Out of the Box is all about pushing yourself to new boundaries and that’s exactly what we plan on doing every day in this new part of the world.

Our supporters come from all over the world, particularly from countries in Europe. From England to Belgium, Spain, The Netherlands, France and other countries in between–we’ve seen people from all of these beautiful countries show support for what Life Out of the Box is doing and what it means to them individually. We want to get a better understanding of what life is like in some of these countries so that we can better connect with each of the cultures and understand what Life Out of the Box means there.

Our time here in California has been amazing with our friends (both old and new) & family. We learned more than we ever thought we could about ourselves, about Life Out of the Box here and the people here who have similar dreams and passions to change the world as we do. The students we have met here through our presentations give us both confidence that the world’s future is in very good hands and we can’t wait to come back and talk to more students around the USA in the future.

As for now, however, we’re excited to learn as much as we can in our travels across the pond about the people, the culture and the market over there for LOOTB. We’ll of course be doing everything in LOOTB fashion–full of adventures off of the beaten path and way under your typical European travel budget. In order for us to be able to travel there we know that we must live off of only simple basic needs, but we are more than willing to do this so that we can pursuit our life dream.

There is a lot of unknown, but that’s part of the fun & the adventure. With our goal in mind for Life Out of the Box, we hope that our trip to Europe will be one that scores. Join us and see what’s next for the exciting future of LOOTB.
