Heath and I’ve only a few regrets about our time full-time RVing.

  1. Not putting in photo voltaic on our Winnebago.
  2. Spending so a few years in an RV with out a Truma. That scorching water heater is ideal.
  3. And the way we spent the summer time of 2018.

We had simply gotten again into our Winnebago after spending three months in New Zealand and Australia and two weeks in Hawaii celebrating a marriage. Earlier than we left the nation, we transitioned out of shopper work to offer ourselves extra freedom with our time.

With the intention to preserve full-time touring, we had been producing movies for manufacturers throughout the nation. Wherever we wanted to movie, that’s the place we traveled that 12 months. 2018 was our first 12 months to get to decide on the place we might journey and when and we had been loving it.

After which our buddy Nate referred to as Heath and invited us to hitch them in Italy. Nate and his spouse, Kara, had been about to host a month of Vespa excursions throughout Italy and we desperately needed to go.

Across the identical time, Campground Reserving was rising and certainly one of Heath’s prospects needed images of all of the parks and factors of curiosity throughout Canada for his or her journey planner product. We would wish to drive as much as Canada and journey throughout your entire nation stopping at particular spots.

It was an enormous venture and it will pay us $2,500/month for 3 months of labor.

In hindsight, we actually ought to’ve clarified American {dollars}, not Canadian.

We took on the venture, made a bit of cash, and helped Campground Reserving develop a product as a substitute of flying out to assist our pals. Wanting again, we made the mistaken resolution and wished we might’ve chosen to spend extra time with individuals we love.

Final week Heath shared his CB journey and the way when he began the corporate, it was all about constructing one thing that gave us the liberty to journey. You may learn the entire put up right here, however spoiler alert, it seems tech startups really take years of consideration and don’t actually offer you a ton of freedom.

Going into 2022, Heath and I saved coming again to this theme of giving ourselves the liberty to pursue the issues we love. 

What issues can we let go that can permit us to get again to touring now that our son is right here? How can we steadiness journey with two children two-and-under and nonetheless run our enterprise? How can we prioritize time with family and friends?

We made a grasp record of every thing on our plates, plus all of our concepts for issues we had been already planning on doing in 2022—like me publishing a ebook stuffed with RV life tales and Heath publishing a enterprise ebook. And we begin crossing off the issues that we weren’t enthusiastic about anymore or wouldn’t give us the liberty to spend time touring with our household this 12 months.

Some issues had been onerous to cross off, like one enterprise concept Heath has needed to begin for over three years, however by no means gotten round to. Some had been simpler, like passing off the RV Entrepreneur Podcast to a brand new host so the present might thrive with out us.

Saying no to so many issues opened us to say sure to the issues we’re actually enthusiastic about.

Like Heath biking the Tuscany Path with pals this spring.

Like reserving two months on a seaside in Tuscany with our youngsters 🏝🍷

Like planning an epic RV highway journey throughout France, Spain, and Portugal with pals this fall 🥖🚐

Like prioritizing automating our enterprise to create extra passive earnings.

And spending extra time collectively as a household whereas these two are tiny and cute

We’ve at all times stated there’s a positive line between RV and entrepreneur. Journey and work butt heads typically. For years, work was the precedence whereas we paid off all our pupil debt after which grew our software program firm.

Now we’re able to lean extra into the journey facet of issues once more and prioritize RVing everywhere in the world with our pals.
