Melissa Nance & Wade Smith
Co-Owners, The Penny Pinching Globetrotter Before hitting the road Melissa was the executive director for a nonprofit organization. It was here that she learned to pinch pennies and accomplish things with few resources. These skills enabled Melissa and her husband Wade, along with their two cats to live two years and counting as fulltime travelers without a steady job or retirement to rely on. In fact, they have more money now than when they started the RV Life.
About this speaker
Cancer changed my life. A few years ago I was laying on my couch sick from chemo dreaming about what I wanted to do when I was better. Turns out most of my bucket list revolved around travel. So we rented out our house, paid cash for an older RV, left our careers, and set out to travel with $10,000 for as long as we could.
It has been almost 2 years since we hit the road. We have visited 15 National Parks & 20 National Monuments, camped in 21 states, gone to 7 countries and logged 20,000 miles on our RV.
We have done all of this on a budget and have even learned how to do some things for FREE. Yes, for FREE!!! In fact after almost two years we have more money than when we started!
