Whistle...or Work While You Travel

Traveling with a pet and sleeping in a tent wasn't really conducive to a lot of work options.  However, they are out there.  People are always wanting to know how to live this lifestyle while being able to earn money.  Especially those of us who don't have work-at-home online jobs!!  Now that I have a camper for Lillie to stay in, I CAN work!  "Where?", you ask.  Ha!  That is the question I wanted to hear!

I can do wine tastings for companies nationwide, as I was in Texas.  I just need to find out what the state requirements are and comply (ie. Texas required you to be TABC certified), find companies providing tastings for wine, beer, etc, apply online then simply find jobs that I want to and am able to do.

While waiting to sell my home in Dallas, I temporarily worked for a Canadian silk bedding company who have road shows nationwide at Costcos.  The owner of the company is good with me contacting them to work when I'm in an area where they have shows.  But that is just a bonus for me!

Other than that?  SO MUCH MORE!
