Update From Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Follow the lead of those who are succeeding.

Along that same line, if someone frequently has "bad luck," consistently runs into problems, or can't make it, maybe he isn't the best person from which to take advice.

I was going to use the above as a "Working RVer Tip," but it is important enough that it deserves to be featured at the beginning of this newsletter. It's true in finding a job, being happy at your job, building a business, and with most things in life.

Bob and I have been busy this week catching up on mail and email that accumulated while we were on the Watkins grand prize Caribbean Cruise. To brag a bit, we ranked 18th company-wide in Performance Reward Points for 2008. In the 2008 International Award Rankings, manager division, we received the fourth place award.

There's a need for more Watkins Independent Associates. If you'd like to join our team, we'd love to help you. You'll find details at the following link.

Wherever you are in your work and travels, we wish you joy and prosperity,

Working RVer Tip

Sluggish Business Can Mean Increased Workcamper Jobs

Campgrounds that have fewer than normal reservations on the books may be more likely to seek campers to work part-time in exchange for an RV site than they are to hire full-time employees. This means more workamper opportunities.

Working RVer Tip

Personal Referrals

Ask your current employer if he has a colleague in another area who might need help. Employers often know others within their industry, including those who live across the country. A written referral is nice. However, a quick phone call to a fellow businessman, giving a personal referral, is a whole lot better.

Disgruntled Work Camper Urges Caution

~ Comments from Wesley

Caution is something to use on a frequent basis. Not all work camping jobs are as good as they sound. This is where caution should be used. As a work camping couple, we have had two episodes that we feel need to be shared.

After two-and-a-half weeks of 70 plus hours per week, the owner not present, and no pay, we decided we had to leave. We later found out the owner had gone to South America to perform missionary work. Needless to say we had been taken for a very expensive ride.

After three months we inquired about no check stubs and no taxes being withheld, and were promptly fired. When we filed our taxes, we found out that we owed more than $1,200.00 in taxes to the federal government because this employer refused to withhold any tax money.

Read the rest of his story on the website. Also, please post your comments and share how you would have handled the situations.

Working RVer Tip

Make Yourself (or Your Product or Service) Necessary

Market yourself, your product, or your service as a necessity. Employers may be cutting back on personnel, but they still need, and will hire, key staff. People may be cutting back on discretionary spending, but they are still buying essential products and services. Show them how they need what you have to offer.

We started this site after corresponding with thousands of RVers, sharing what we’ve learned from our personal experience as full-time RVers, as well as what we've gleaned from employers and managers who hire and work with work campers and other RV workers.

We do hope we've been instrumental in helping you find the right work situation for your RV lifestyle.

We believe there are many advantages to having an RV home based business that we can take on the road with us. We've found a Watkins Summit Group business works for us.

We are also thankful for SBI!, the "do-all-the-techy-stuff-for-you" e-business building platform that made creating this RV resource site possible.

If you have questions, we're always happy to help. Simply submit them here....
