ABOUT OUR HOST
Thanks to the generosity of his grandmother, Aaron Schlein traveled to four continents and a dozen countries before he was old enough to vote. Those early trips convinced him that travel is an essential part of life.
More than two decades later, Aaron remains inspired by his grandmother’s generosity. He is committed to honoring her legacy by sharing the gift of travel with his own kids—and by helping other parents do the same.
Aaron also helps new entrepreneurs use their personal stories to build a network, expand influence, and strengthen relationships.
Aaron lives in Sacramento, California with his wife and two children (who are growing up too fast!)
