In part 2 of my interview with Amy from Nomadtopia, she uses her background in the book publishing industry and experience as a freelance editor to provide advice to those wanting to publish their own book.

She also provides advice for those wanting to rent out their own home while traveling, and discusses her podcast and why she might be changing the format after almost two years. The reason is something all aspiring podcasters should keep in mind so you're not going to want to miss it.

In this week's solo episode I answer some questions/concerns a listener posted in the Living Unconventionally Facebook Group. She's working towards selling her home and traveling full-time in our RV, like us, and wants to know if she can count on the WiFi in campgrounds and if she'll have any issues taking her 3 bully breed dogs in campgrounds. 

 

Not only do I respond to those questions but I also talk about our experiences so far in Moab, Utah. This quick episode is packed with resources so you definitely don't want to miss it!
