Curious about what is your source of income?

My fiancé and I have been looking into building a skoolie and traveling the country. We’ve been doing a ton of research and this forum is extremely helpful! Hardest part is finding a reliable source of income that allows us to travel. I’m a chef and my fiancé works in an office. I’ve been thinking of becoming an illustrator/photographer but I know that will be a tough start to run. It did lead me to think how anyone else receive their source of income? How do you prepare for emergencies when it comes to having money for such a thing?

I don't consider it lucky at all, I had to lose both my parents in the last 6 months.

That sounds a little happy to me, but we all grieve in different ways I guess.
My brother died last year, definitely ruined all my plans for the year and has had me so bummed my bus and everything got put on hold.

The rofl was referring to my current lack of income. I lost my oldest brother, 2 years older, 2 years ago. My father in Aug. and my mother on News Years day. I have a 10 month older brother who is battling right now to save his only good kidney. If it were not for me burying myself in this bus build I'd be in much worse shape. That's why I'm anxious to get a bus to take up my time. Actually haven't gotten any of my inheritance yet. My bus money right now is what I made from selling my AIRSTREAM trailer.

Being a chef, you could stop in small towns and work in a diner or few then travel on or something.

My family of 4 has been fulltiming for a few years. My wife and I both go to college online at a very low $ per credit school. All the extra gov't student loans/grants get sent to us after classes are paid for. Ends up being around 5000 in feb, 5000 in april, 5000 in aug., then 5000 in oct.

And yes, we are getting a college education from it too - not just hustling the system. Both honor roll students usually

I own an internet based company (insurance billing) and run it out of my bus. My staff all work from home.
