Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

It seems September is flying by. It will soon be time to start winter positions. Bob and I aren't sure where we will be working this winter. For now, we are certainly busy here in Alaska with the websites, Watkins, and our secondhand business.

Campgrounds, both private and public, are now looking for summer of 2012 work campers. Information on both follows in this issue.

Should you be so inclined, next time you are on either or, if you'd hit the Facebook Like and Share buttons I'd be grateful.

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

How We Earn Our Living - Watkins Summit Group Bus. Info

I don't know if you know it or not, but I have a part-time business as a Watkins associate. I help people get Watkins products, and I help people across the U.S. and Canada earn income as associates, too. I build my business almost totally on referrals, so I'd like to ask for your help…. Would you please mention me and Watkins to everyone you talk to this week (including your Facebook friends)? And, if you hear anyone wanting a way to earn more income, or if they mention loving Watkins products, or if you just know that they like to keep their home, health, and cooking as natural and healthy as possible, PLEASE have them get in touch with me.

Since you are reading this newsletter, chances are good that you are looking for a way to make some extra money. You could do what I do. Part of our income comes from my being an Independent Watkins Associate (ID #362289) within the Summit Group. You could be one, too.

Reader Feedback

~ Fran writes: We are in the process of selling our house and plan on going RVing for the next several years. We really were interested in the want ads, as they were helping to give a direction to our travels. By you removing them, we are now having to look for other ways to find where our travels should take us.

~ My reply: Why don't you let your travels take you where you WANT to go? Campground and other seasonal jobs exist all over the country. We've never needed to look at a classified ad to find a campground that needed help and I doubt that you would need to, either. Short-term jobs are relatively easy to find all over the USA. Another option is to work for yourself, with a business you can do on the road.
