Debra & Barry Benton
As entrepreneurs and full-time RVers, we decided to follow our talents and interests to create independent income to continue this journey. We decided to start one business and then buy another, giving us an interesting perspective on the two choices.

About this Speaker
Debra and Barry hit the road two years ago when faced with an empty nest and jobs that could be done remotely.
Debra started this lifestyle doing contract marketing and community outreach work while Barry continued to work remotely for a photography company. They realized quickly the confines of this and decided they needed more independence. Building on a side business that Barry and his photography partner started while they lived in a stationary home, they adapted Benton Downs to a workshop-based photography school with a focus on teaching others how to take better images and taking them to great destinations to practice.
Seeing a need for greater community as they traveled, they bought The Virtual Campground earlier this year. Their vision with this online business is to develop stronger community to offset feelings of isolation, especially among full-timers, and provide resources to all RVers.
