Today on the podcast I bring on my friend Cortni from the Flipping Nomad. Cortni's story is unbelievably inspiring.  Six years ago she was borderline homeless, struggling to take over her dad's businesses (who recently had a stroke), and moved into a fifth wheel as her only housing option.  Just six years later, Cortni has built a thriving RV renovation (aka flipping) business and recently partnered with Keystone to create a truly unique and never before seen fifth wheel. Some people even refer to her as the "Joanna Gaines of the RV industry". In this episode we talk about how: Cortni stumbled backwards into RV life and then made the most of a bad situation Pre-sold her RV renovations on Instagram Went from zero experience in renovations to making $5,500 in one week on her favorite flip ever She caught the attention of one of the biggest RV companies who extended a once in a lifetime opportunity for her This podcast was a blast to record. I hope you like it. If you do, give Cortni a shout on Instagram and tell her she's awesome.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rve/message
This episode is all about how to stand out from the noise and stay front of mind when you're trying to attract and work with large brands.  I talk about: The one thing I believe is a disproportionate way to get in front of and actually win over potential brands/clients How we originally pitched Winnebago on partnering up and they said no (but ended up doing a lot more work together) Ways you can boost the odds of hearing back from brands you're interested in working with Brittany and Adam both left Voicemails in my Anchor inbox and I was able to pull both their questions into the show and answer them (best I could).  If you want to leave a question and be included in an upcoming episode for the RV Entrepreneur, you can drop a voicemail here. :)  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rve/message
Most of the people I bring on RVE are running a remote business from their RV. While Kim and Erran don't fit this bill, they have a really interesting story and something I've been wanting to talk about on the show for a while: being a traveling healthcare professional (related, but slightly different than travel nursing). What we cover in this episode:  What does it mean to be a traveling healthcare professional How much you can make How to handle things like personal health insurance and how to find travel jobs Connect with Kim & Erran on their: Website Podcast Facebook group --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rve/message
Losing your money is never fun, but losing the money that is the seed investment to your company is even worse. This happened to Jess, but she didn't let it stop her from creating a company that has now donated over half a million headbands to kids all over the world. In this episode we cover a lot of awesomeness, we talk about: How Jess was able to recover from her initial investment loss and push past the "failure" Why business plans are overrated The power of "putting yourself out there" Changing your mindset from being "destination centered" to present-oriented Connect with Jess: Headbands of Hope Jessekstrom.com Jess on Instagram If you enjoyed today's episode, I'd love to hear from you in the Twittersphere OR better yet, drop a review in Itunes. :)  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rve/message
