I was a middle school English teacher. I had been teaching for five years, and even though the job had been a huge personal challenge for me. I wished for a job that wasn’t so demanding of my time and energy.
I have a lot of respect for teachers, but I didn’t want to be one forever
The problem was, I felt stuck. At that time, my husband Josiah’s income from freelance web design was sporadic, and we depended on my paycheck to pay our bills. At times I considered looking for a different job.
A few months later, I handed in my resignation, and we pooled all of our resources to purchase the commercial real estate training course and embark on our new career as commercial real estate investors.
My career options didn’t have to be limited to jobs I was already qualified for
Our dream of living in an RV started one night when we both woke up in the middle of the night, and out of the blue, Josiah said to me, “I think at some point we’ll be living and traveling around in an RV.”
After that conversation (which happened sometime in 2015), we started spending a lot of time looking at RVs online and even touring them at local dealerships. I also started saving RV decor and organization ideas on Pinterest.
“I think at some point we’ll be living and traveling around in an RV.”
It seemed to us like the perfect opportunity to make our dream of living in an RV come true. We found a fifth wheel we liked and decided to finance it (we applied for the loan before I quit my job and we sold our house!).
