Welcome Dream Catchers! If you’re just finding the show, be sure to check out our Facebook page and take the time to leave us a review on iTunes. On today’s show, we chat with Keona Harris, a Houston, Texas-based mother and entrepreneur. After going through a divorce, buying a new home, and starting her own business — all within the last year! — Keona decided there was no better time to plan a cross country road trip with her 9-year-old daughter. “I was one of those people who when I had PTO days I couldn’t or wouldn’t use them because work would get backed up,” Keona told us. “I just had to look at my situation and ask myself what is more important to me? My child was going to daycare and school all day. I didn’t get home until it was time to put her to bed. I didn’t want that life for her. I didn’t want that life for us… I don’t need to give the best of my years and my times to an institution when my daughter needs me most.” We talked to Keona about why she decided to plan this journey for her daughter and, of course, how she saved up the money to fund it.
