About Today’s Guests, Rob and Kim Murgatroyd:

Rob and Kim MurgatroydRob and Kim Murgatroyd are just like every other married couple with a young child…if every couple with a young child traveled around the world to interesting places such as Capri, Italy and Rio De Janeiro and wrote insider guidebooks about it. Not a bad way to make a living, eh?

Rob and Kim spend 13 weeks a year traveling the world shooting videos and writing guidebooks for their brand Jet Set Life. They stay in the coolest hotels & find the interesting hot spots that most people don’t know about (away from people with fanny packs).

In this conversation, we chat about everything from world travel to their Jet Set Life brand to what it is like working with your significant other.

  • Rob and Kim are great peeps.

    I had them on the VBL Podcast about 6 months ago and the episode was a big hit.

    They’re joint zest for life is remarkable. They’re a great couple.

    Keep rockin’, David.

    I enjoy watching your interviews, but you gotta figure out how to balance the audio on these. The interviewees are too loud while sometimes I can’t hear anything from you. Makes it kind of a chore to watch. Keep up the good work though!

    • David Siteman Garland

      LOL – I like “anonymous coward” – But thanks for being tactful. Definitely something I’m always trying to improve always up for ideas on how to do it better. I do know what you mean though!

    • David Siteman Garland

      Wanted to let you know I figured out the leveling issue and future eps will now be leveled like a beast πŸ™‚

  • anita foss

    Hey David, thanks for delving into this and giving us a glimpse of the research and planning that goes into the JetSet Life videos and guides.

    • David Siteman Garland

      My pleasure, Anita!

  • This is one of my favorite interviews thus far David. It’s great to know there are other adventurous, serial entrepreneur couples, with kids, experiencing the world. This was a really fun interview to watch. It’s great to find like minded people out there.

    • David Siteman Garland

      Thanks, Chuck. They are great people with an awesome story.

  • This is awesome about @jetsetlife:disqus and what a concept! Love the new Rise too! πŸ™‚

    • David Siteman Garland

      Aww Ashley you rock.

  • Sarah

    Rob and Kim should have their own TV show!

    • David Siteman Garland

    I agree with Kim, Rob looked better being on the Right (from the viewer perspective). As always great interview, however, this couple do a great job of sharing their love, interests and talents. Thanks so much for more insight

    • David Siteman Garland

      D- All about camera placement πŸ™‚

  • Cool couple Kim and Rob, tnx for some business advice.
    I still follow.
