Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

We've had a busy week with our usual mix of work. I write and coach. Bob fixes and makes things. We work the secondhand and Watkins parts of our business together. The variety fits our personalities. It lets us be flexible.

There's such a huge range of work that RVers can do. What have you found that is right for you? Email me and let me know, or submit a story through the website.

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

Network marketing gives you the utmost in flexibility. If you want to move every couple of days, it lets you do that. If you want to have a workamper job to cover your RV site, you can do it during your off hours. You decide when and where you want to work.

Christmas Tree Sales and Other Holiday Tree Industry Jobs

Working Christmas tree farms and sales lots are one way RVers make a sizeable chunk of money in a few weeks. Besides selling, someone assembles wreaths, makes deliveries, and gives farm tours.

Holiday tree farms and retailers need workers. Laura Bilger of the National Christmas Tree Association tells me one of the biggest problems in their industry is finding temporary laborers.

Here's a partial list of jobs in the Christmas tree industry:

• yard and display decorators
• handymen around the farms and lots
• activity planners
• tree planting and care

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Why Employers Don't Respond

~~ Raymond asks: I emailed a resort about a job and haven't had any response. Can you find out why?

~~ I answered in part: When you don't get a reply it usually means one of three things:

1. They didn't get your email. You might try calling or contacting them again.

2. They have been busy and haven't gotten to it. You might try a polite follow-up to let them know you are still interested.

~~ Read the longer version of my answer on the website.

Summer Farmer's Markets thru Holiday Bazaars

Sell at farmer's markets, fairs, fall festivals, and holiday bazaars. Choose a quality product line, with products people use and want. I personally recommend Watkins products. Associates who join this month (July 2009) receive a $10 gift certificate. To buy or sell, contact me, Independent Watkins Associate Coleen Sykora.

Working RVer Tip

Employers Hire the Employed

It is easier to find a job if you already have a job. Accepting a short-term, temporary job, even if you don't particularly like it, may help you get the job you actually want.

New Favorite Work Camper Campground Nominee

Columbus KOA

~~ By Sue Lawrence

Dear hubby and I have been workampers at Columbus KOA in Columbus, TX for the past year. It is a great park. We just don't want to leave!

Hubby and I work together two days on and six days off for FHU, laundry, propane, and store discounts, plus other perks here and there. No $$, but hey, there are plenty of hours in six days if one wanted an extra part time paying job.

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....
