You mentioned how much the trip is going to cost to get started, but what about along the way? Do you have money saved up or do you have some source of income? (this question is from my husband)
-Bonnie Wright (and husband...obviously)
So....where do I start? The short answer is no, we don't have money saved up for this - we will be working on the road. The long answer? Here it goes....
We have some savings, but it is only for emergencies, not for living on. Right now, Jeff works full time (well...super full time - 12 hours a day/7 days a week) helping farmers. He also works as a book-keeper for a mortgage company in Utah, which he does remotely from here. He's been helping them with their books for about 3 years now and it works out well.
Back to the dough - Jeff will work with the farmers until the first week of October, when we will go back to Utah to a) get ready for this baby to come - she's due October 26th and b) get ready for the wrestling season to start. Jeff is the head coach for a high school wrestling team down there. The season doesn't start until November, but he's got to recruit and get organized before hand. He will have a little bit of income from coaching and teaching the wrestling class. And when I say a little bit, I mean he's mostly a volunteer like all other high school coaches. :)
Jeff is also a network-marketer. His focus is teaching people how to recruit without alienating their friends and family. He is awesome at what he does. Check out his blog - www.askjeffmaughan.com.
Side-note -- my husband is honestly superman. Now you know part of the reason I believe that....plus look:
I am seriously suspicious. But that's a post for another day. What was I even talking about? Oh ya.
I also work very part time for an organization called Brave Girls Club (www.bravegirlsclub.com). Among other things, they do retreats for women called "Brave Girl Camp". I am the camp manager, and will be able to do most of what I do from anywhere.
Wow - does that answer your question? After all that I guess the real answer is we'll be working on the road and we'll do whatever it takes to get where we want to go (both physically and finacially). :)
