33: Happliy Family: Jason and Cecilia Hilkey on their journey from teaching preschool to building an online business and their search for an intentional living community.
In episode 33, we chat with Jason and Cecilia Hilkey about how they went from teaching preschool (as a married couple teaching in the same classroom!) to serving parents through their online business, Happily Family. We talk about their deeper reasons for starting an online business and how they focus on serving families and creating relationships with others in the field of parenting and education.
They also share a fun story about their desire for community, and how that led them to make a big move out of Los Angeles to a co-housing eco village in Oregon.
This is a super fun episode about an inspiring family who chased their dreams and discovered more than they could have imagined along the way.
It's perfect for anyone interested in compassionate parenting, education, entrepreneurship, online business, non-violent communication, the Reggio Emilia approach, intentional living, community, and manifestation.
