Family Adventure: How to Plan for an Epic RV Trip

We've been talking in a series of episodes about travel all this month- how to plan these different types of trips for your family that you'll enjoy and remember for a long time. But have you thought about doing something bigger?

Something where you don't just go away for a week on a vacation or a cruise, but actually take a break from your job, your house, and explore a different part of the world for a while?

Sounds pretty crazy, right? I think most people would have a few things. That immediately come to mind about why it wouldn't work.

  • How would we pay for this?
  • Would we be able to find a job after we return?
  • Could we sell your house?
  • If you have kids, how would they deal with things?

They're normal questions and concerns to have. I'd take it as a sign that you're someone who thinks things through. But wouldn't it be fun to shake up things a little?

Mike Heroux of Dividend Guy is on the show to help you go from dream to reality by sharing his story and take on things. He and his wife are wrapping a trip they took as a family five through the Americas.

In this episode, we look into:

  • how they prepare their finances and themselves for their RV trip
  • dealing with difficulties on the road
  • how you can start building some income on the side for your own adventure

Hope you enjoy it!

Rollover Your 401(k) Easily with Capitalize

We’re grateful for wonderful partners like Capitalize. Not only do they support the podcast, but they help make managing your money so much easier.

Did you know that it’s estimated that there are currently over 24 million “forgotten” 401(k) accounts? In fact, the average American changes jobs every 4 years.

And because of the Great Resignation, you or someone you know might be changing jobs even more.

It’s an extreme case of out of sight and out of mind. Is your old 401(k) in there somewhere, left behind at a job you're no longer with?

One huge benefit of an IRA is choosing how your money is invested, not your old employer.

If you want to consolidate your old 401(k) and have more options with how you invest, it may be time to roll them over into an IRA.

With Capitalize, they handle the process from start to finish – for FREE. And yes, that includes calling the 401(k) provider on your behalf.
