“I reached a certain point where I realized that this is my life and I need to start listening to myself about what is important.”

Jake Newell does his artwork at night to fund his true passion, which is building houses for Habitat for Humanity. He’s traveled the country full-time since 2011 building houses, fly fishing and running his hand engraving business from the road.

In this episode we cover a lot, but really dive into both of our internal struggles to find meaningful work on the road.

A few things we talk about on this episode:

  • Who are the RV Care-A-Vanners and what do they do?
  • How asking for help from experts can grow your business
  • The importance of finding community on the road
  • Finding meaningful work while traveling
  • Funding a Nomad Lifestyle through hand engraving
