Today on podcast, I’m interviewing David Blackmon.  David is an explorer and a traveler, web developer, and a creative free spirit that enjoys learning and sharing his knowledge with the world.  He travels full time with his wife, while running Aspen Grove Studios, which is a WordPress design company that creates child themes and plugins.

David is also an upcoming speaker at The RV Entrepreneur summit we’re hosting in February.

A few things we talk about on this episode:

  • How David has grown Aspen Grove Studios by producing consistent content
  • How he went from building websites to launching his own wordpress theme company
  • How to leverage the power of Facebook groups
  • How to manage a growing team and expanding business

Listener Stories:

Submitted from Zach Starr. In 2015, after a military service injury, Zach hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (2,650 miles)… which many people said he’d never be able to do. During that time he also made his first feature length documentary about his journey and did it all in four months. In 2016 he built up a speaking career, debuted his film, and in 2017 is planning a cross country RV tour to promote veteran advocacy groups.

Such an epic story Zach and wish you the best of luck in your upcoming adventure man… thank you for reaching out. You can check out Zach’s film at epicmile.com and we linked up to it in the shownotes.

Again, if you have a story you’d like to share, are running a business from your RV, or planning a departure of your own into the travel lifestyle… send me an email so I can share your story, [email protected]

“Google absolutely loves relevant content”

“Blogging is massive for helping a business grow”

“Find a community of like-minded people that are doing what you are doing.  Get their experience, join Mastermind groups, join Facebook groups.  Be helpful and give back to that community that you’re trying to break into and you’ll be surprised by what happens.”
