RV myths and misconceptions
There are a lot of misconceptions about RVing or living in an RV. I know because I was the person who had all these misconceptions before I ever considered living in one:

- Very limited storage space
- Expensive to own and use

We’re all guilty of it.
It has become such a part of our lives that our daily routines don’t feel complete unless we’ve checked Facebook, email, RSS feeds, etc.

On the contrary, the information age has empowered us more than ever. But, it has also hindered us more than ever.
I like to feel connected to what’s going on in the world. But, there are times when falling into information holes can prevent you from taking action in your life.
What prompted my remote job search
Before my partner and I decided to live in an RV, we lived in an 800 square foot apartment in a suburb near Oklahoma City. We both had jobs we commuted to and quickly realized this lifestyle didn’t work for us.

We loved the mountains and longed to live a lifestyle where we could spend more time outdoors, pursue peace, and live more simply. We decided it was time to move, but where?

In this post, I interviewed Chanell Alexander from The Remote Work Life. I met Chanell in a #remotechat Twitter talk and was curious about her journey to remote work through freelancing as a writer.
Freelancing is a great way to start working remotely, whether you want to get experience as a remote worker or simply start your own business and escape corporate America.
Before you have a remote job, you need to prepare for the eventuality of having a video conference. You could have a video interview for a potential remote job as well.
When you have a remote job, it’s important that you be your professional self on video as you would in person in an office. Non-verbal communication still makes up 90% of all communication even if you work from home.
In this article, I’m going to cover the 11 ways you should prepare before you have a video conference from home.
