Selling Everything And Hitting The Road...With The Bacons

Have you ever just wanted to leave everything behind and drive off into the sunset?

Hey guys! Stephen and Chelsea here with another episode of The Rainmaker Family Podcast. If you said yes to the question above, you are going to love this episode! That’s exactly what today’s guests did. Wesley and Mallory Bacon, along with their 3 boys are living their dream life on the go as an RV family. 

Within a 4 month span, Mallory and Wesley Bacon worked on upgrading their home, sold it for a profit, downsized up to 90% of their possessions, bought a 5th wheel, refurbished it, moved in, and started their adventure as a totally mobile family.

If you're reading this and thinking “FAMILY GOALS!..but I don’t want to do all that in 4-months.” No worries! Whether you’ve ever considered becoming an RV family, or just thought about taking a nice long road trip, this is an episode that will make sure you are packed, prepared, and ready for adventure! 

The Bacons share the nitty-gritty of how they transitioned from home to RV, going from office jobs to flexible digital contracting and Amazon FBA, learning how and where to stay while traveling, how they stay in a strong community with people despite location,  homeschooling on the road, and more. These tips are great for any family who wants to dream bigger and see more of what the world has to offer. 

So push play and join us and the Bacons on their journey in RV life!
