Money, Money, Money!
Being a full time RVer is exciting, filled with opportunities for fun, but it takes money. I know, you are shocked, but seriously this is a fact of life no matter how you live. Those of us who travel full time are not independently wealthy, but each of us finds a unique way to support our freedom-based lifestyle. So, how do we do it?
Well, sit down because this will take some explaining and, like our individual uniqueness as people, the same applies to how we earn a living in our RVs. Some RVers work remotely for other businesses; some are bloggers; others are business coaches; there are even traveling nurses; and others work for RV campgrounds. The list goes on and on, but at the end of the day, work is work. The one difference I have noticed about RVers is they usually work or create businesses where they can live their passion just like they live their passion with full time RVing.
Right now, you are probably thinking……”Well, that is all well and good, but I need to make money and I need to do it now!” So, how can I help YOU fund your dream? Below you will find a compiled list of resources for finding the perfect job just for you. Valid work from home jobs exist and the trend just keeps growing!
The Penny Hoarder: https://www.thepennyhoarder.com/
Take some time to look around this website as it is filled with penny pinching ideas that can help you budget, find inexpensive ways to stretch your dollar, and they have a “make money” section all geared on earning income.
Rat Race Rebellion: https://ratracerebellion.com/
This website caters to individuals who are looking to work in non-traditional ways, and you can receive periodic updates in your email with new opportunities that come available. These are real companies looking to hire real people. I have seen Apple jobs, customer service jobs, technical support positions and so much more! Currently, there are even opportunities for at home work and non-profit organizations.
RV Job Exchange: https://www.rverjobexchange.com/
The RV Job exchange is a powerhouse website that offers different types of work for the RVer. It ranges from telecommuting, to consulting, and even has workamping positions. (Work camping is working at a private/public campground in exchange for a free site/electricity/internet, etc., and some even pay a salary).
Workers on Wheels : https://www.work-for-rvers-and-campers.com/
Workers on Wheels is a listing site for countless on the road jobs. This website is incredibly useful for the workcamper, and you will find ongoing job listings located all over the United States. You can subscribe to their newsletter and get up to date listing opportunities delivered to your inbox. Workers on Wheels’ blog is filled with resources so be sure to see what they have to offer you.
If you are not on Facebook, you will want to join today as the resources available are endless. Look into Full Time Families, Escapees, Xscapers, or do a search for RV jobs. There is no wrong way to find the right job or business opportunity, but the one thing that sets full time RVers apart is they are an extremely tight knit community. You will have an instant bond with your new-found RVing friends, and you will be accepted into the family. This family is here to help you, and no matter how small or silly the question is, your RV community will be there to help you! We just can’t help it!
Yeah, yeah, we have heard it a million times. Networking is EVERYTHING and it is what makes us successful as entrepreneurs. RVers take networking to the next level, and each and every one of us works hard every day to help our fellow RV family succeed. Before RVing full time, I would not have thought this was possible. How can people who do not see each other often actually establish and maintain relationships that grow their businesses? Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are just a few ways we connect, and all you have to do is reach out and ask for help. You will be pleasantly surprised at how helpful an RVer can be….I know I was!
So, what do we do for CASH?
Well, once you think outside the box and allow abundance and opportunity to flow into your life, unbelievable opportunities present themselves. I have Multiple Sclerosis and cannot work full time, but that does not stop me from making a difference in the world. Keith and I discovered Young Living essential oils last fall, and life has never been better. Keith has lost over 34 pounds and I have substituted some of my western medicine prescriptions that help me with my symptoms. We love Young Living, and much to our surprise, (we were total skeptics in the beginning) we are 100% believers and have created a business to support our lifestyle. Young Living has an incredible business opportunity that pays quite well. Our business allows us to help others proactively support their health and wellness and provides us with income at the same time.
Each RVer creates a life that works for them, and it looks differently for everyone. Rest assured, there is no wrong way to do it, and if you need help, we are here to help you in any way we can. So, feel free to send us an email, and keep on Driving & Thriving!
