Sooooo, for those of you that don't know, Hubby and I decided to sell the house, sell or donate 2/3 of our possessions, buy an RV and travel the U.S.A for the next few years. Ok, we didn't just wake up one morning and make this decision. We have been planning this since I became an Independent Consultant with Pink Zebra Home. Full-time RVing was a retirement goal of ours. After a year of Pinterest post, running numbers and a genuine drive to make this happen, we took the plunge.
As a certified teacher, road schooling the kids was the easiest decision we had to make during our preparation. Our home school district has been extremely supportive and I had the kid's curriculum written within weeks. I was nervous that the kids would be upset, missing their friends, but they are SO EXCITED!! We let them help with planning since it is their adventure too and their friends can follow them along the way.
We get asked A LOT how we are able to "afford" this adventure. After selling our house, we were able to pay off all of our debt (minus the student loans) and have money for a down payment on the RV. We also had enough for an emergency fund, which we believe is a necessity.
As for our "income", both Brad and I are Independent Consultants with Pink Zebra Home. We have an amazing team that we regularly coach and our passive income is more than I made as a full-time teacher. Our goal is to travel the good ole U.S.A sprinkling the country with Pink Zebra Love! We have several fairs and festivals scheduled throughout and are excited to help others change their lives the way Pink Zebra has changed ours.
Never in a million years did we think we would be embarking on our retirement goal before our 40s, simply because we decided to get involved with wax melts. Coming from the traditional work world, having the freedom to work when and where we would like, truly is life changing. We are so excited to give our kiddos the opportunity of a lifetime. While their classmates are reading about history and geography, our two will be immersed in it.
Please! Follow our adventure! We know it won't be easy but it is going to be wicked FUN!!
After 7 years of teaching full time, I was able to quit teaching and work full time from home! I love that I can spend so much time with my family. No more missed life events, even the little ones. Pink Zebra has changed my life. Now, I help others create their own strong economy allowing them to work from home, pay off debt and follow their dreams.
