What if you could walk away from the pressures and stresses of corporate life, and live outside of the routines and restrictions? What if you could choose where you live on a daily basis, have a beach view on Monday and a view of the mountains on Friday? What if, instead of trading your days and weeks and years for a life deferred, you just went and lived that life right now?
These were the questions Joe and Kait Russo asked themselves as they faced endless corporate meetings, inconvenient business trips, and the crushing stress of 'making it.' It all changed when Kait asked Joe, "What if we sold our house and got an RV?"
"Take risks, and have lots of children."
That was the final advice Joe's father gave him, and it became the driving force behind Joe and Kait's decision: They would do it. They would sell it all, downsize, leave their high-paying jobs, and go out to find and explore every corner of the world.
They would take risks.
In this book, written in a very present first-person style, Joe takes the reader on a journey through the decisions, challenges, and triumphs of embracing a minimalist lifestyle, and getting on the road full time.
Full of practical insight and wisdom, and told in an almost folksy and very personal tone, Take Risks is a powerful 'how-we-did-it' tale that will inspire you and give you a starting place for your own journey. If you've ever wanted to move into a full-time RV lifestyle, this book is for you.
Take your own risks, starting right now, and embrace the rewards that come with them.
Insightful and entertaining
I was doing our research on “van life” when I came across the Russo’s YouTube channel. Everything we watched from them led me to finding out about their book. I HAD to read it. I only had to get in to the first couple of chapters and was just shaking my head in agreement with their reasons for moving into a simpler life. Additionally, understanding their journey helps me gauge and understand ours. We’ve already started selling off things we don’t need to save money for our adventure. The idea of less is more is so freeing. Thank you Joe and Kait for sharing your story!
A really good book! Get your other ones on iBooks!
Take that risk!
After following the Russo’s for the last few months, I decided it was time to explore the “let it all go” mentality.
I’ve spent months researching RVs, there options and the lifestyle, but haven’t taken the plunge. Reading this book I realize you either work and worry to live or take the risk and live to live!
Guess which one I’m choosing!
