RVE 78: RVE Podcast Takeover with Alyssa Padgett

posted in: Podcast | 18

Hey RV Entrepreneurs! Alyssa here. This week I’m taking over the podcast!

It’s been a beyond crazy week for Heath and I, involving two computer crashes, Heath losing his podcast recordings for this week, and a business trip for Heath that left me alone in the RV for four days! (AND there isn’t a single place that sells wine without a 30 mile radius of this campground. What is going on with the world?!)

That’s when Kelsey, our podcast, and editor and I started texting and came up with a solution…

We are obviously TOTALLY prepared and professional podcast hosts. It took us 4+ hours to figure out how to record this episode and it was a really fun learning experience. But Heath…please come home soon. I am not cut out for this!

BONUS, at the end of the interview, we will also be announcing the dates of next RV Entrepreneur Summit!

A few things we talk about on this episode:

  • A typical day in the dream life of rving – is it really all s’mores and campfires?
  • What am I working on behind the scenes at Heath and Alyssa?
  • Progress on the vlog – how long does it take to get new projects up and running?
  • Evolution of writing skills and tips for new bloggers
  • My new guide to RVing is out!  We have exciting plans for a second launch
  • RV Entrepreneur Summit 2018 – top secret information!

Quotes from this episode:

“If you are working towards something and you just keep hitting a wall, take a break! Go do something else. Come back to it later whenever you have the fresh motivation and you actually want to be there doing it.”

“So, waiting to live your life… don’t do it.  Make a plan.  Get that date on the calendar.  Work for it!”

“If there is something that you want to learn and you don’t have time and you don’t have the bandwidth, it’s worth it 100% to invest in someone else.”

Thanks for Listening!

You’re awesome. It’s because of people like you that I get to sit around in my RV and record podcast episodes with really interesting people. If you’ve been enjoying the show and want to help others find it, I’d love a review from you in iTunes. Each and every review helps more people find the show (seriously, each one counts).

    Just finished listening to the podcast and you did a great job Alyssa! 🙂 Way to go.

    • Thanks Emily!!!!! It was fun (and weird and awkward and stressful and memorable!) 😉

      • Emily

        I’m sure. I’m really happy for you and Heath. We hope to meet you at the NEXT RV Entrepreneur Summit. 🙂

  • Kevin Strauss

    Great job Alyssa! Tons of great tips, advice and experiences I’m sure many people can learn from and put into practice. I’m also happy to get on the waitlist for the Summit since I missed it last year. You guys continue to inspire and educate so many people every day. Cheers! -Kevin

  • DominiqueVF

    Relatively new listener and follower, you did a great job with the podcast Alyssa! Congrats! Hope to hear you more frequently with Heath. 🙂

  • Ryan Bell

    Alyssa, this is my first time ever commenting on your site because I finally felt compelled.
    I learned things from you I just didn’t from Heath. You brought a new personality to the show I don’t want to listen to without from now on. You speak from the heart and I like that. You should definitely take over the podcast full time from now on and let Heath handle the CFO business. All hail Alyssa the new CEO!!!

    Your loyal listener,
    Ryan

    • Hahahaha, thanks Ryan!!! I’m sure we’d end up jailed for tax evasion or get hunted down by creditors if I left all the CFO duties to Heath, but I do like taking over a CEO every once in a while 🙂

      • Ryan Bell

        That’s quite scary. It’s also amesome knowing your side of things though and I would like to hear more of your full story in a future episode. Like… some of the stuff you talked about was more eye opening because you focused more on the little details. Really made me think.

        Also, I agree 100%, let your youtube show all the life as it really is. That would differentiate you and have me coming back for more at least… not that I won’t see everything you guys post anyway.

  • Denise Jaunsem

    Alyssa, great job! This was a wonderful, informative podcast. I’m planning my move to full time RV life and am learning so much from you guys. I will be coming to the summit, just a short drive from Austin where I am currently living.

  • Woo! I got a mention. I’m famous now, right? Holla atcha girl! But my url is lizwilcox.com, because I can’t NOT correct you.

    Great job chica. I’d definitely love to see more RV work life on your youtube. It’s kinda your thing and that other stuff, like wow! Look where I was, is not fun to watch, imo. Unless you’re LJMJ, but that might be because they’re a family of 3 and so am I. Also, Tennessee accents. Anyway, working in the rv, how you’re building your businesses, I would 100% watch that.
