    RVE 197: How to Stand Out from the Noise & Attract Brand Partnerships as a Content Creator

    This episode is all about how to stand out from the noise and stay front of mind when you're trying to attract and work with large brands. 

    I talk about:


    The one thing I believe is a disproportionate way to get in front of and actually win over potential brands/clients
    How we originally pitched Winnebago on partnering up and they said no (but ended up doing a lot more work together)
    Ways you can boost the odds of hearing back from brands you're interested in working with

    Brittany and Adam both left Voicemails in my Anchor inbox and I was able to pull both their questions into the show and answer them (best I could). 

    If you want to leave a question and be included in an upcoming episode for the RV Entrepreneur, you can drop a voicemail here. :)

    RVE 196: Making money as nomadic healthcare professionals

    RVE 196: Making money as nomadic healthcare professionals

    Most of the people I bring on RVE are running a remote business from their RV. While Kim and Erran don't fit this bill, they have a really interesting story and something I've been wanting to talk about on the show for a while: being a traveling healthcare professional (related, but slightly different than travel nursing).

    What we cover in this episode: 


    What does it mean to be a traveling healthcare professional
    How much you can make
    How to handle things like personal health insurance and how to find travel jobs

    RVE 195: Would you quit if you lost your entire initial investment?

    RVE 195: Would you quit if you lost your entire initial investment?

    Losing your money is never fun, but losing the money that is the seed investment to your company is even worse. This happened to Jess, but she didn't let it stop her from creating a company that has now donated over half a million headbands to kids all over the world.

    In this episode we cover a lot of awesomeness, we talk about:


    How Jess was able to recover from her initial investment loss and push past the "failure"
    Why business plans are overrated
    The power of "putting yourself out there"
    Changing your mindset from being "destination centered" to present-oriented

    RVE 194: Don't Ditch the 9-5 to Work a 9-9

    RVE 194: Don't Ditch the 9-5 to Work a 9-9

    How do you build a business that supports your family while also leaving enough room to live the RV lifestyle? That's the question Dani asked when she saw other entrepreneurs posting Instagram photos of their laptops in pretty places but complaining about how overwhelmed they were with their business.

    After opening business after business, Dani realized the thing that she was best at, the thing that lit her up, was the process of starting, building, and streamlining a business. Now Dani helps entrepreneurs develop processes so they can spend less time working and more time living.

    This episode is a bit of a kick in the butt for anyone who feels like they are doing everything in their business and is maybe struggling to loosen the reins and let someone else pick up the slack (AKA Alyssa & I). If you've ever thought about outsourcing or finding ways to work fewer hours, this episode with Dani is a must-listen.

    RVE 193: Bootstrapping Your Way to Success

    RVE 193: Bootstrapping Your Way to Success

    A few years ago, I saw a tweet that has stuck with me. Someone asked what was the best way to fund a new company. The person replied “Customers.”

    There are a few routes you can go when you start a business. You can find investment, fund it yourself, fund it with presales, and so on. And each method will be different for each business you start.

    With Campground Booking, Heath had a few false starts. He tried going to an angel investor, partnering with an existing company to fund development, and ultimately landed on bootstrapping.

    In this final Startup series podcast, Heath shares why he decided to bootstrap the company and how that decision has affected the business and his personal life.

    RVE 192: Turning Users into Fans through Awesome Customer Support

    RVE 192: Turning Users into Fans through Awesome Customer Support

    When you're an entrepreneur, sometimes you have to do it all. Sales, marketing, IT, support—you'll wear every hat in a day. But as your business grows, you won't have time to do it all well. Once Heath hired Scarlett, he noticed an immediate improvement in customer experience. Support response times dropped, there were fewer support requests, and more resources to empower campgrounds to learn how to solve minor problems.
