Day 256 // Our Escape Plan!

Okay, we have a plan! 

I had to get it out, so I put it all in a list organized by month.

PLAN SUMMARY:

  1. NOV – FOCUS ON CLIENTS / START MARKETING
  2. DEC – FOCUS ON CLIENTS / BOOKING CLIENTS
  3. JAN – FOCUS ON CLIENTS / BOOKING CLIENTS
  4. FEB – FULL TIME @ HOME! MARKETING IS #1
  5. MAR – CLEAR HOUSE / SELL STUFF + VEHICLES
  6. APR – SELL STUFF DOWN TO WHAT TAKING W/ US
  7. MAY – BUY RV IN CASH / FIX IT UP: BARE MIN.
  8. JUNE – GET RV/LIFE SETUP FOR FULL-TIMING
  9. JULY – HIT THE ROAD! SPEND MOST TIME IN OR.

I will work at VT for three more months, then I’ll be a full time business owner and designer!

That’s when we will be able to focus on clearing out the house, selling all of our things, and saving up for our RV, which we will buy cash.

Laith has found a ton of RVs under $10,000 that are in very good shape, are Chevy diesel, with all the things we want in an RV. So, there’s options out there, and we will find the right one when it’s time!

UPDATE 11/11/18 – WE ARE GOING TO LIVE IN OUR POP UP!

I can now update our countdown timer to a more realistic timeline. I’ve set the date to 7/20/19 to give us over a week to drive to Washington.

Seven months until we are free birds with only ourselves to rely on!

I feel like this is a very solid plan, and writing it all out I’m realizing that we can make this happen! Just have to work work work work work work work as much as I can to make it a reality, then I can take a bit of a break after we are settled on the road and business is going well.

LUXE DESIGN CO. UPDATE:

I got a lot done design-wise this weekend. I stayed up from 7am Sunday to 7am today, Monday. A full 24 hours I was working non-stop on finishing up one of my client’s sites.

I figured out how I’m going to share every aspect of a client project with the client as well. It’s called ClickUp and it’s similar to Asana, but it’s not $40 a month. It allows the client to see exactly where I’m at in my process, with timelines, comments, a calendar, a task list, and communication. I’m going to add my next client project to it as soon as I can.

I’m still behind on logos, I have two clients that need logos like yesterday. I’ll get it done. I’ve worked since I got up today at 1:30pm, so now it’s time for bed, I’m beat.
