50 Jobs in 50 States: How to Have an Unconventional CareerWould you trade your job to travel in an RV with your spouse…and film it? Heath & Alyssa Padgett said yes for their new documentary, Hourly America.

When Heath & Alyssa Padgett got married, they decided they didn’t want the traditional honeymoon. Instead, they ditched their 9-5 jobs and headed out on an adventure in a tiny RV named Franklin. Heath & Alyssa traveled to 50 states and did one job in each state while Alyssa filmed the journey for their documentary, Hourly America.

While you might be thinking, “Sure, that’s easy to do if you have a trust fund,” they are quick to share all of their financial lessons from along the road, including the fact that they had to become quick entrepreneurs to fund this journey. What started as a unique honeymoon adventure has turned into a budding business for these two who continue to live and travel in their RV.

Heath & Alyssa are in the final stages of putting together their documentary and have turned to us to help fund Hourly America. I don’t know about you, but I’d love to see this go mainstream. I can’t imagine how a newly married couple could live in an RV for over a year, let alone add in the pressures to film, work and document their life.Screen Shot 2016-01-15 at 1.54.34 PM

Hopefully, their story inspires you to take a risk and not settle for the status-quo. If there’s a dream career you’ve been wishing for, today is the day to chase after it. Take a risk, be brave, try something new…and ask yourself, “What’s the worst that could happen?” My guess is that you’ll probably uncover hidden talents that you possess and a whole new world that was waiting for you to discover!
