The challenges of writing, editing, and publishing your first book

    Some of the eerie experiences they had on the road that made it into the storyline

    RVing Across America: A Quest to Visit All 50 States with Alyssa Padgett | RVE 252

    RVing Across America: A Quest to Visit All 50 States with Alyssa Padgett | RVE 252

    Today we have the pleasure of talking with Alyssa Padgett. Alyssa is a co founder of the RV Entrepreneur community and  has just published her second book: RVing Across America: A Quest to Visit All 50 States. Back in 2014 when she and Heath got married Alyssa convinced Heath to take her to all 50 states for their honeymoon. Somehow he go her into doing it all in an RV.

     While traveling, Alyssa directed and produced Hourly America, their documentary film about their 50-state honeymoon, and Heath’s working an hourly job in each state that was featured on CBS, CNN, Fox, People, Yahoo, Huffington Post, and more. After visiting all 50 states in  that year, Alyssa fell even more in love with travel and spent the following years RVing all over the world. Today Alyssa and her family still travel as much as they can and will actually be enjoying Italy when the book and this podcast release.

    In this episode Alyssa and I talk about:

    How this book is the memoir version of the documentary and why she felt the desire to share that year’s experiences with the world
    How it feels to be the pioneers with a lifestyle that has now gained so much traction and popularity
    Why Alyssa took this year of experiences and decided to write a book instead of publishing blog posts
    The process of writing a book that was actually written twice and overall took almost 8 years to complete

    RVE 251: Why Niching Down Geographically Can Be An Awesome Business Strategy with Brooks Smothers from RV Out West

    RVE 251: Why Niching Down Geographically Can Be An Awesome Business Strategy with Brooks Smothers from RV Out West

    Today we have the pleasure of talking with Brooks Smothers.

Brooks is a marketing consultant by day and a podcast host for a show called RV Out West by night. Born & raised in the Pacific Northwest he grew up camping; from backpacking, car camping, van life (before it was a thing), to a tent trailer and now with a travel trailer.



    In this episode Brooks and I talk about:


    Some of the pros and cons to a geographically focused podcast - his is focused on the Pacific Northwest

    How as a content creator you need to create and play within your own sandbox, not worry about the castles everyone else is building in theirs

    How you can bridge the search engine gap between storytelling and information about a specific location

    How Brooks identified his target audience and then took one specific metric unique to them - average one way commute - and  has tailored his podcast to fit that time span



    I hope you enjoy the episode!

Inspiring, fun and engaging !

I started listening to this podcast in the morning at work, as we are planning on full timing but wanting to make a passive income doing so...I am so inspired by this podcast and the success stories that keep my husband and I on the path to follow our dreams. I love the questions you ask
Other entrepreneurs on here and how engaging each episode is...I finally resigned my current management “career” and purchased a fifth wheel to begin our journeys. I aspire to be a host on here some day when we settle in and find our niche! Thank you so much!!
