How do you afford to travel full-time???
How do you afford to travel full-time? This is the #1 question our followers generally have. Of course this is a natural question and one we ourselves had for those already living out this lifestyle of location independence when we first started on this adventure.
Before I jump right in and answer this question… Let me give you a little background of where we started…
When we decided we wanted to travel full-time with our boys, Jeremy was working in the automotive industry as a master technician. While this job allowed us to pay our bills monthly it was definitely NOT a location independent job! As we talked more and more about this “Dream” we realized that Jeremy was going to have to change careers if we were ever going to acquire the ability to be location independent.
Making this change initially did not seem as difficult as it would eventually turn out to be… it wasn’t until we were about 5 months into our initial 6 month deadline (can you say “in denial”) that we realized Jeremy was going to have to go back to school in order to get a stable remote job that would allow him to both work remotely and fully support our growing family.
We are aware that there are jobs out there that do not require a specific degree in order to work from home.
