To his dads: ‘Just let yourself be, I love you for who you are’ Tweet This
Take a moment and put yourself back into your 16 year old self.
Remember the angst? The desire to rebel? The confusion of deciding what to do with your life?
Now imagine you, and your parents, and your siblings deciding to uproot and go volunteering around the world for as long as you can. Imagine leaving your friends behind. Imagine being stuck in stressful situations, half way around the world with only your family for support.
That was Riley Temple’s experience just a few years ago when his family went travelling and volunteering for 9 months around the world.
Join us as we dive into being a 19 year old entrepreneur, growing up with influential male role models and how a trip around the world changes you forever.

Riley’s family adventure: The Courage Vibe
Here are some of the things we get into:
- Growing up with two Dads: Our Dad’s have a huge influence over our lives. Riley’s biological parents separated when he was 2 years old so he ended up with two strong father figures in his life, his Dad and his Step-Dad. Riley tells us how that ended up being really positive for him as his Dad’s are quite different.

- Travelling with the family: We chat about how Riley dealt with frustration on his trip and settling family conflicts. He tells us a story about getting separated in Indonesia.
- Returning to normal life: After Riley got back from his trip he found settling back in to normal school and life a little hard. Things that used to seem so important just didn’t anymore.
