Episode-1784- RV Living and Freedom From the Corporate Grind

joekaitJoe and Kait Russo are two 30 somethings who took a leap of faith to live their dream of leaving California and the corporate rat race to travel, work for themselves and live a healthier lifestyle.

This dream started almost 6 years ago when they realized California was becoming a very unfriendly place to live with increasing gun control, excessive taxes and limited freedoms. They also had jobs that made taking vacations difficult (and stressful) and found themselves spending more time at work than with each other and their dogs. So in 2015, they quit their jobs, bought a 29’ RV and sold almost everything they owned, including their home, to live life on the road with their Husky while traveling around the U.S. full time. (Their other dog passed away at the beginning of the trip)

Getting to this point took a tremendous amount of planning and discipline. The key for them was gaining financial freedom and the willingness to take a few well calculated risks. Though its not yet supporting them, Joe and Kait make money through their website and YouTube channel where they share their experiences and try to inspire others to make a positive change and take a step towards living the life that they want.

  1. This is perfect timing as yesterday the better half and I were talking about doing this next year. How did you know Jack?!

  2. James Belleau

    I was going to pass over this episode and very glad I didn’t.

  3. What great timing, I just bought my first RV yesterday.

  4. have you looked into drop shipping as a way to make money? I dont know much about it but I know you could do that on the road. Is your mom coming around now Kait, supporting you in this lifestyle?

    • When we started figuring out what we wanted to do to earn income, we did discuss the drop shipping route. There’s actually a great book called “The 4hr Workweek” and the author talks about this at length. Its not something that we felt very passionate about, hence why we chose to document our travels and adventures (plus it doesn’t feel like “work”).
      Now that we’ve been on the road for a bit and Kait’s mom has seen how much happier we are and that we’re starting to make money, she has become one of our biggest supporters. To be honest, this would have been much harder for us had our families not been so supportive.
