There’s a reason I named my blog, “Saga of an RV Rookie… ” rookie being the operative term; as in, every single thing we do related to RVing is for the first time, including figuring out the right time to go full-time. At this point, I’m inclined to say something about RV virgins, but I probably should desist and move on to the overwhelmingly fascinating world of RV consignments; but more important than that, I’ll address how God reminds us He is in charge of the plans. Now, just so you know, you are number one on my mind when I write for Woodall’s. I always want to bring a benefit to you, so you think it’s worth your time to read what I have to say.

If you are an RV owner, finding a way to balance relaxation time with work time is actually much easier than you may realize. One of the beauties of owning an RV is the ability to have a mobile office AND enjoy a good ol’ American road trip Constructing a home office in your RV is the means for accomplishing such a task and believe it or not, is a very real possibility with a little creativity and elbow grease. Not only that, but you can also build an office which is comfortable as well as functional. Where Do I Start? It depends.

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: “How to Earn Money RVing: Chapter 3: Retool, Retrain, Reinvent Yourself”
Maybe you’ve read articles about ways to earn money while RVing and thought, “Easy for her to say she can do that job from her RV; she has a degree.” Or perhaps you thought, “Yeah, I could do that job from my RV, too, if I had his skills.” Does this inner dialogue reflect your thinking? If so, may I be blunt? I have found working from an RV requires a positive attitude and a commitment to doing what it takes: maybe retooling, retraining, or reinventing yourself. It’s work, not magic. For instance, let’s say you want to write for publication but grocery lists top your writing experience. So what? Just because you’ve never written articles or blogs or books, does that mean you can’t write? Of course not! Consider taking an online writing course. Read any of a million great “How to Write” books. Study the hundreds of free writing tips on the internet. Get an online degree in something (you can get low-interest government loans for accredited online degree/certificate... [Read more...]

You’ve always thought “online” referred to wet clothes in the backyard and that an “attachment” is a connection with another person (true, but it means something else in the techno world). It’s ok. You’re not alone. According to a recent Pew Foundation study, 21% of all American adults agree with you. http://techcrunch.com/2010/08/11/pew-fifth-adults-internet/ That’s right. One-fifth, just like you, avoid the internet. You’re only reading this blog because your techno-geek spouse or friend printed it out for you… because you for sure the heck aren’t getting on the internet! So does having zero interest in the internet mean you can’t earn money from your RV? Or lessen your value as a human being? Or that you’re not quite right in the head? Of course not! Earning money from an RV without the internet may be more challenging, but the work exists. Consider: What skills do you have? ... [Read more...]
