When Heath & Alyssa Padgett got married, they decided they didn’t want the traditional honeymoon. Instead, they ditched their 9-5 jobs and headed out on an adventure in a tiny RV named, Franklin. Heath & Alyssa traveled to 50 states and worked one job in each state while Alyssa filmed the journey for their upcoming documentary, Hourly America.
While you might be thinking, “Sure, that’s easy to do if you have a trust fund,” they are quick to share all of their financial lessons from along the road, including the fact that they had to become instant entrepreneurs to fund this journey (hence, there was no trust fund to fund this journey). What started as a unique honeymoon adventure has turned into a budding business for these two who continue to live and travel in their RV.
Hopefully, their story inspires you to chase after unconventional careers and not to settle for the things as they are. If there’s a dream that you’ve hoped for, take a positive step today to make that dream come to pass. Take a leap, try something new, be brave…you never know where it might lead you.
