Raise your on the road commitment to the next level by partnering both day to day living and working for profit from your RV. The free and easy life of an RV full-timer, moving with the seasons or your whims requires an influx of earnings, particularly for pre-retirement enthusiasts. By using the tools of software and apps, WiFi and the internet, the avid RVer can be in business anywhere. When you take your livelihood along the RV life becomes a full-time proposition. The challenge is finding jobs that are as portable as your chosen lifestyle. Younger RVers have many years of gainful employment ahead and need to be creative about combining travel and work, all the while reaping the benefits of reduced household expenses.
Renegotiate Rather Than Resign
Before you cut ties with your employer investigate whether you can do your current job remotely. With a reliable WiFi hotspot on your laptop at many campgrounds, you may be able to do much of your tasks as you roam. If your employer can use Skype or other meeting apps or if you can log on to your work computer remotely you may have a seamless transition from the cubicle to the RV.
To go about this, you must convince your boss that you are even more efficient working from home than while sitting in the office. This might be the hard part.
Connect With Online Job Boards
The freelance life combines well with the RV life and younger RVers know this. Check out job boards on RV club websites just like Xscapers, perhaps turning your travel experiences into money through reviews and travel guides. Many websites exist that look for remote workers to write content, enter data, design websites and graphics and other tasks that easily can be done anywhere you have a laptop and a WiFi signal or hotspot. It can be as simple as following up on an online search for freelance or remote jobs. See the listings below for some leads and know these types of jobs are increasing and evolving so keep looking.
