It was inspiration that lead to Epic Road's early development. Lakin, then a lawyer, underwent a personal transformation while on a trip to Africa. "I had my eyes opened," he said. "I went from believing happiness was defined by a specific path involving success and money to witnessing happiness in poverty." The perspective shift lead to his realization that "a full belly, a nice sunset, a laugh with a mother" were transformative. Epic Road seeks to expose others to exactly that. Lakin's passion, as much as his relationships, fuels Epic Road's offerings.
