A weekly podcast interviewing nomadic entrepreneurs on how they run a remote business.
People actually run a business from a van down by the river?

Our generation is realizing that “the dream” of buying a bunch of crap, putting half of it in storage, and signing your life away on a mortgage is a terrible way to live. We no longer have to choose between meaningful work and a geographic location—we can have both.
The RV Entrepreneur documents how a new generation of tech-savvy, location independent entrepreneurs are building businesses that allow them to travel anywhere.
For most people, the biggest hurdle to RVing or traveling full-time is finding a way to support themselves on the road. But with the internet and the rise of location independence, it’s easier than ever to find remote jobs for digital nomads. You can start with this list of 38 job boards that post remote, work from home jobs in multiple industries.

Tools For Starting A Business
Bluehost is essential for anyone who has a website. We’ve used Bluehost to set up all of our blogs. They make it insanely easy to launch a new WordPress site and you can sign up for $3.45/month. Everyone who starts a website or blog has to host it somewhere and Bluehost is the best place to start!
You can click here to grab an account with them for $3.45/month.
(Overwhelmed with starting your blog? We’ve been there. Take our free course!)
The first thing you’ll need once you start your business is a website and second is an email address. That’s where G Suite comes in. We use Gmail, Google Drive, and basically every Google app there is because it’s the absolute best option for small business owners.
Raise your hand if numbers and records and spreadsheets are the WORST part of running your business!
You should spend more time on the parts of the business you love, not the boring stuff. That’s why we use and recommend FreshBooks for making accounting a million times easier!
Tools For Managing A Growing Business
This is the email service we use to send newsletters to our email list. It’s an incredible email marketing service that caters towards professional bloggers (meaning people who make money from their blog). We’ve used ConvertKit for years and won’t stop any time soon.
Customer support can make or break a new business. We use Help Scout to manage customer support requests for all our businesses. Helpscout integrates with Slack, so we are notified when emails come in and then we can run reports on important metrics like “time it takes to initially reply to the customer”. Helpscout also will allow you to manage multiple mailboxes if you have different kinds of customers.
Tools For Creators
The BEST way to make custom images for your website (especially bloggers!) Completely free to join, but we use the pro version for extra tools like stock photos and making logos.
Most of our client work to date has been filming and launching courses for clients. With every launch, we use Teachable for quite a few reasons. It is incredibly easy to use and set up your course; they have a sleek, easy to modify design, AND they offer built-in affiliate programs. We use Teachable for all of our courses!

For Remote Workers
Flexjobs is easily the most well known and recommended online job board for remote work. They also have a great blog with resources on how to make money from home and job search tips.
Use the code FLEXLIFE when you sign up for 30% off your membership.
Everyone’s biggest concern about working on the road is the same: how will I get internet? RV park wifi is unreliable at best. We use an unlimited AT&T plan and a cell booster can help ensure that you have service everywhere. We use a cell booster to help get extra bars of service and this is MUST HAVE for anyone working from their RV.
For the RV
There are a lot of places to buy RV gadgets, but we love and trust TechnoRV. They are our go-to for high-tech gadgets like a tire pressure monitoring system, a good surge protector, and wifi boosters. If you’re looking to upgrade your rig, TechnoRV is the place to look for new gear!
After you buy an RV, you’ll need to pick up a few things before your first trip. This shopping list includes everything you’ll need for setting up your RV such as leveling blocks, hose connections, water filters, and electrical adapters. We use everything on this list on a daily basis and could not camp full-time without them.
Please, PLEASE, before you spend $100K on an RV, rent out an RV for a week and check it out! Outdoorsy offers peer-to-peer RV rentals, which means you can rent a real person’s real RV. This is the best and easiest way to find out which type of rig you want, what full-time life is like, and BONUS, it’s usually way cheaper than your classic hotel + airfare vacation.
Already have an RV? Click “List Your RV” on this page to learn how to make money renting your RV. (We’ve made over $5K renting out our RV during the holidays)
We are big fans of travel and even bigger fans of saving money traveling. We recently booked flights to Italy for under $500—and they are normally well over $1200! We found the awesome flight deal using FareDrop. FareDrop will send you emails or texts giving you alerts on flight deals to top destinations. I have a feeling there are a lot more flights in our future 😍
People who are location independent fall between the cracks, without proper access to insurance or national safety nets. We know this because we are nomads ourselves.
Safety Wing—who offers nomad insurance for travelers as well as remote worker insurance—can cover you and your family in 180 countries worldwide. (This might be the most affordable healthcare for travelers that there is!)

A free seven-day course on how to travel full-time on a budget.
We quit our full-time jobs in search of an epic adventure and spent a year traveling to all fifty states in our 1994 class C motorhome. During our journey, we camped in national parks, toured scenic highways, visited major cities, and experienced life in an entirely different realm than we had ever known.
The best part is we did it for cheap, really cheap.
The goal of this course is to walk you through exactly how we budgeted for our trip, from basic travel expenses to what you can cut back on, and some custom rules we’ve learned to live by while on the road.
