Oftentimes we're asked on the road, "so, how do you guys make money to perpetuate your travels?" I'll be honest, sometimes people ask that question and it's really condescending. It's almost as if they assume we were given trust funds as teenagers and just live life in pure bliss all the time. Reality = we work. Just like everybody else. Okay, maybe not exactly like everybody else. We don't spend all day in an office, or behind a desk. We did, at one point. Which is what prompted us to get the heck outta dodge in our RV. We weren't being fulfilled with 9-5 desk jobs. Vanessa and I crave experience, adventure, and change. That's why we pick up odd jobs while we travel full-time in our RV.
But also as a writer by trade, I'm able to pick up freelance work on the road. Writing for different companies along the way has allowed me to feel fulfilled, but also continue to travel as much as we do. One of the freelance gigs that I absolutely love, is with the stationery and invitation company, Polka Dot Design. I've officially worked with them for over a year, coming up with clever content, SEO-friendly landing pages, and working on their blog articles. Truthfully, the company is amazing, and Phillip Vanarsdel is the type of guy most people wish to have as a idea generator and email companion.
Check out the guest post I recently did for Polka Dot Design, and see for yourselves why this company is so great.
