A PRIMER for those who are “on the road” and wish to maintain an income – OR – for those who wish to generate income from a “sticks and bricks” home as well…
No this is NOT a sales pitch – we ALL know how much we enjoy those! My intent here is to inform, prompt thought, and perhaps advise. Watch my video – then read on for additional thoughts and details.
Lets face it… we live at a time where these times have created uncertainty – along with amazing potential and frankly to those who think “out of the box” – its exciting!
I hope through my first video in this series I was able to provide a few “starting” ideas. My 2nd video will go into the “800 Pound Gorilla” in the “work from anywhere” world. Recapping here are a few ideas to ponder…
- handyman/RV Repair – a basic set of tools could be sufficient here; no one expects you to be stocked like Camping World, and thanks to Amazon, you can get almost anything you need in 2 days to even the most remote locations
- computer tech/repair – most folks just need the “junk” cleaned up; viruses removed**; good anti virus software installed and MSConfig set up so that nothing runs unless it needs to be running
- create something! can you sew? make quilts? sweaters? hats? the world is waiting for YOU to show your creativity!
- BONUS Suggestion: This came to me after creating the video – ever heard of “fiverr” or “gigbucks” (google ’em)- take a look at ’em. You can offer “gigs” for a few $ and work online through them. Example: If you can write, you can do “copy-writing” on a “per job” basis.
A note on “work-camping” – I’ve done it on the volunteer level. Last summer I was at Steamboat Lake in Colorado and served as a camp host. This summer, I will be in Idaho and serve as a “nature guide” and “star party astronomer” (I do have a background in science – earth science in particular.) These have been UNPAID volunteer positions. From what I can see, I prefer this to being paid at a campground. The paid employees work MUCH harder and longer. For me, I’d rather enjoy the state/national park experience and not have a full time job (working for them). I believe there are MUCH better options – perhaps I have detailed one earlier in this post – or perhaps I will hit on one in my next video, which will serve as “Part 2” of this post.
Care to “sound off” – got something to say (perhaps something YOU do to “earn on the road”) or contribute? Use the “leave a reply” area below to speak and be heard!
