Full-time traveling is a dream for a lot of people. Most people think that it is only that and will stay that. A DREAM. Creating a full-time traveling income can be a deterrent to making that dream happen. There are many opportunities to explore when trying to make a stream of income so you can travel full-time. What is really takes is a paradigm shift in your thinking. Are you ready to shift?
How to Create A Full-Time Traveling Income
Bryan and I fell in love with RVing when we bought our first motorhome on a whim. I can’t recommend whim buying, but it worked out for us. It helped us realize an opportunity for a revised path for our lives. We began changing our thinking about what we wanted to do in retirement….then it changed to: “Why do we have to wait for retirement?” Well, practical me…said because these are our power earning years and we have to be responsible and fund our 401K’s! As our thinking shifted…we realized that we could change gears and start a business on the road. We researched other people doing the same thing and got inspired (and scared) but really inspired.
When wanting to make a change in your life, your thinking has to change first. Thinking it can’t or won’t happen will probably get you that result….no where. Your thinking can make you be stuck. Stuck in a job, stuck in a relationship, stuck in life. There can be real obstacles to overcome but the way to change things starts in your head.
The Journey to Freedom Starts in your head!
You may want to full-time RV. You also may not have a job that naturally transitions to the road. Bryan and I didn’t but our travel bug got so big we had to find solutions.
The first thing we did was look at workamping. Workamper News patented this definition: “Workampers are adventuresome individuals and couples who have chosen a wonderful lifestyle that combines any kind of part-time or full-time work with RV camping.” This kind of income can lessen your monthly living expenses by giving you a free campsite in exchange for hours worked and often includes extra paid hours depending on the needs of the campground. The type of work to be done is varied. Workamper News is a wonderful resource to find workamping jobs all over the United States. They offer a membership to help employers and campers find each other. The membership has an intro level that is free so you can scope out what they have to offer. The annual membership is $47. We found it well worth it! This help us understand this aspect of opportunity on the road. We became RV Lifestyle Ambassadors through them as one of our streams of income. Please us our Ambassador code if you sign up for a membership….AMB130. Thanks!
Another thing Workamper News does for RVers is offer an annual event called Workamper Rendezvous. This year it will be in Heber Springs, Arkansas on October 16th to the 20th. We attended last year and gleaned so much information on not only workamping but starting our own business to run from the road. This is a great event to help get your thinking shifted from I can’t have this lifestyle to I HAVE this Lifestyle!
Many Income Producing Opportunities!
If you begin to think outside of the normal 9-5 job, you will find many opportunities to create something for yourself. What are your skills? Can you take what you are doing now and do it remotely? Luann did! But she didn’t see that right off the bat. We were determined to change our lives so the wheels were turning. We had heard a speaker tell us to set a goal (for us that was the day we wanted to be full-time) and work towards that end with the goal in mind. It wasn’t magic, but because we wrote it down, committed to it and circled it on our calendar, it was in the forefront of our minds and we had to figure out how to make money while we lived the RV lifestyle.
Over the months, we got creative and outlandish but this brainstorming got our juices flowing. You can think this way too! You can figure out how to make this lifestyle happen for you.
We will begin to explore other things to produce revenue in upcoming posts. Make sure you subscribe to our posts and let us help you navigate the journey to a full-time lifestyle of travel! Let us know what you are interested in! Comment below, ask questions we would love to hear from you!
