RVE 152: Starting an Amazon FBA Business from Scratch with Tim and Fin

The last year of work before I left to do this, I was banging my head against the wall with management telling you your ideas aren’t right or you’re not doing your job well. When you go work for yourself, you are only responsible to yourself at the end of the day, and it can be a little scary sometimes because the risk is so high. But now that we’ve fully transitioned here, I can’t imagine going back.

 

Tim & Fin’s Story:

In 2015, Tim & Fin quit their jobs, put some clothes in a backpack, and booked a one-way ticket to Europe. After that trip, Tim & Fin tried to go back to working jobs like normal only to find they wanted to be back on the road.

At that point, they created a plan to make a life of travel more sustainable. Tim & Fin opened their Amazon store, Tripped Gear, in June of 2017, which allowed them the opportunity to work remotely and get back on the road. The adventure only continued from there!

Stories from the Road Podcast

One of my favorite parts of RVing is sitting with other people and sharing stories: the good, the bad, and the hilarious.

The Stories from the Road Podcast talks to RVers from all walks of life about what led them to the RV lifestyle, the things they like and the things they don’t like, and where they see themselves going in the future.
