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.

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!
Motivation to take a different path
Joe & Kait are one of my favorite YouTube channels to watch. This book will take you on the journey of how it all began and will motivate you to try something different in your life.
If you're tired of the same-ol same-ol and are interested in living life "differently", which n your own terms, changing the societal norms, this book is an inspiration and your permission slip to do so.
...it'll also motivate you to enjoy your coffee more :)
A Great Read
I’ve been following the Russo’s for over a year. Reading this book has further encouraged me to hit the road when I retire later this year. Can’t wait for book 2!!
