In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Amy and Joe Rogan.

Amy and Joe are fellow full-time nomads, traveling in a van, rolling with the punches that life throws at them, and making wonderful memories.

They are currently working on their first book, Happy Medium, which is scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2023.  You can pre-order your copy now by clicking here.

Amy has had extensive personal and professional experiences. All of these experiences combine into a powerful perspective of technical expertise with consideration for creative and emotional wellbeing.

Professionally, Amy had an extensive career in the fashion industry as a technical fashion designer before transitioning into an entrepreneur. She has worked for companies such as QVC and Disney in product development.  She then partnered up with Joe in their entrepreneurial adventures with their granola bar business, elite coffee catering business, network marketing businesses, and more. She keeps them organized with the back-office details and planning events.

Personally, Amy has triumphed over multiple serious health issues including Fibromyalgia, Manic Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia, as well as having multiple surgeries: Appendectomy, Cholecystectomy (Gallbladder), Hemithyroidectomy (removal of half the Thyroid), Supracervical Hysterectomy with Unilateral ⁠Oophorectomy (removal of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and left ovary with large endometrial cyst as well as endometriosis adhesions.)  The chronic and severe pains have given Amy a different view of life and what’s most important to her. Gratitude is the foundation of happiness.

After Joe was labeled as “learning disabled” he discovered self-reliance and determination to experience the world as he sees it, from a different point of view. That label drives him to prove they did not understand how to teach a creative mind.

After getting a Bachelor’s degree in computer art and traditional animation, Joe has always kept drawing even though he gave up pursuing his career to take care of Amy. He worked various jobs, each leading to new and exciting experiences building to the next one.  As a UPS driver, Graphic Artist for a T-shirt printing company, Bartender, Catering Floor Captain, PR for his own YoYo Business, Published Illustrator, and Gig Economy worker, he has learned valuable life skills and built lasting relationships. His entrepreneurial heart and persistence have created multiple businesses and explored high-risk/high-reward opportunities. His ability to see the bigger picture takes us to places we never thought possible.
