What’s crazier: Jumping out of a plane every day or quitting a 6 figure job to live in a van?The first time I spoke with Mark Rickert of OTG Apps I thought he was awesome! He lives full time in a small RV, he has a well-paying mobile friendly job, he gets to camp for free most of the time and he has the ultimate thrill seeking hobby. I invited Mark to share on our Make Money and Travel series and he “jumped” at the opportunity to share his story in the hopes of convincing others to take the “leap of faith" needed to follow their dreams (I know, horrible puns, I'm sorry). I read Marks story and found I liked him even more than I expected (a real bromance on the horizon)…then I opened the photos he sent and now I hate him! Well, hate is a strong word, but come on, this is the dude's office:
I'll let Mark take over the introduction from here.
This Make Money and Travel story is a little different. It's one of those cases where work and income wasn't absolutely necessary because the guy is retired, however when an opportunity to travel while building the Keystone pipeline came up, it was too good to pass up. When Benny reached out and told us his well paying, fairly easy job not only gave him the opportunity to travel but also reach a financial goal that would allow him to buy his dream home on wheels, well... we thought there may be a few of you out there who might want the same.
Finding a way to Make Money and Travel isn't hard, but it does require some creative thinking (or outside the box as we like to say). As with any successful business, its about figuring out what people need and filling that need. That is exactly how Anne started her location independent bookkeeping business.
