““Sail beyond the horizon; fly higher than you ever thought possible; magnify your existence by helping others; be kind to people and animals of all shapes and sizes; be true to what you value most; shine your light on the world; and be the person you were born to be.” –Blake Beattie”
Thank you for checking out the Raising Miro Web Site & Podcast! We hope that you will find our journey inspiring and our Podcasts & Youtube channel entertaining and informative. As you might have figured, I’m self-employed recovering brand strategist, designer, marketer, writer and web developer, but after suffering a bad case of professional burnout bordering on absentee parenting combined with a failing state economy, our lifestyle redesign includes focusing on living in the moment, and enjoying our journey together. Yes on the practical side, we still need to earn a little money to continue our journey and this is why this page was created. If you support our journey, please consider extending that support in the following ways:
Supporting our journey means a lot to us. If you can afford to donate a few bucks, we’ll really be grateful.
“Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion if we can simply learn that as well as giving, it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart.”
–Sarah Ban Breathnach
Any amount is appreciated. Your donation goes a long way as we live consciously and own very little. We value the basics, and live off $1000 a month. We pay it forward everyday as live in the moment, bring smiles to peoples faces and offer help everywhere we are. This is our path, and if can help by sponsoring us for 1 week – $250, 2 weeks $500 or 1 month at $1000. If this is not within your reach, please feel free to donate any amount you are comfortable with and we’ll be honored. You can sponsor anywhere from 1 week of travel to several months via paypal, form located on the right side of every page.
If you have a travel related business, conscious business or regional service and you think our audience would be a fit, please consider advertising with us. You can sponsor a weekly podcast, have your ad read before or after the podcast and you will have a link to your site from the individual podcast page which will remain live for the life of this site. Miro and I hope to travel for the next 7 years, at least until he’s 18, so you’ve got a long life of live linked content which is a valuable SEO bonus.

We have our preliminary inspired reading list here with Amazon links. If you’re going to buy something from Amazon, please be so kind as to initiate the search from my website. Amazon will give me a small portion of the sale, which hey, may not support our travel, but helps, nonetheless
Thank again for your support!
