The RV Entrepreneur with Heath Padgett show

The RV Entrepreneur with Heath Padgett

Summary: Living and traveling in an RV used to be only for retirees or the occasional family vacation. But over the past few years there has been a new movement of young RVers who have intentionally chosen to live with less stuff, be mobile, and take their lives on the road. This podcast is for people who are interested in downsizing their life, creating remote income, and working from anywhere. The RV Entrepreneur Podcast is a weekly show where I interview nomadic entrepreneurs who have made the leap into the RV lifestyle and have taken their businesses with them on the road. My name is Heath Padgett and in 2014 I quit my job in software sales to go on a year long RV trip across America with my newlywed wife. After spending a year on the road and traveling to all 50 states, we realized that returning back to “life as normal” in a 9-5 job wasn’t going to fly. Instead, we spent 2015 building up a remote income through our online business and freelance video skills, paying off over $14k of student debt in the process. On this podcast, I'll share everything I learn about how to make money while traveling, based on my own experiences and full-time RVer guests. Unlike most business-related podcasts, the entrepreneurs who I bring on my show aren’t millionaires, just normal people who have created remote income streams that allow them to work from anywhere and travel the world.
