  1. Great episode. I love Michelle’s honest and straightforward approach, she’s very genuine. With the amount of money she’s bringing in and the fact that she and her husband live so simply, she shows amazing discipline and financial humility.

  2. This was a great podcast! I’ve learned a lot from Michelle and you guys. Rv life is a future goal. Keep up the great content!
