Since November 2015 we have been traveling through parts of Latin America and Europe. We split our time between traveling, volunteering and working.

Our philosophy is to work with great people on great projects and then donate the rest of our time and money to causes that we discover on our travels.

Without a strict plan of where to go next, we can stop and concentrate our time on your business. In 2018 we plan to spend the first half in Central America and from July we will live in the Amazon Jungle.

Ben McMahon

I’ve always had the travel bug. After university I spent 2 years abroad and during the next 8 years working in various corporate roles I always hoped I’d get to ditch the suit and live a digital nomad lifestyle.

When Emma and I realised we had the same crazy way of thinking it was only 3 months before we were on a plane to Chile without a return date in mind. After experiencing this side of life we’re resolved to use our skills to turn our extended holiday in to our lifestyle.

My corporate experience covers time working directly in Process Improvement, Service Delivery, Product Development and Marketing Management. I completed my MBA with AUT in 2008 and was once on a comedy radio show. Seriously.

Emma Harfield

Travel has always been a huge part of my life, I can’t remember when I haven’t been lusting over a new destination for adventures! What Ben and I have created is a life of balance, where we can travel and experience the world, but also spend time working with causes we love and on projects that can make a difference.

I have a passion for people – BE Business enables me to apply my experience in relationship management, and help clients to build and maintain connections with customers.

Strengths from my previous corporate life lie in business planning, building sales strategies, creating marketing campaigns and understanding how to generate new business opportunities.
