How To Quit Your Job, Live In An RV, & Get Paid To Fish


If you like traveling, fishing, and adventuring, you’re going to love this episode!

Robert Field shares his amazing story of becoming homeless, unemployed, and losing a close family member in just a matter of days… to now getting paid to fish, travel the world, live in his RV, and be happier than ever.

Sounds like quite the turnaround, right?

This is such an inspiring story because just five years ago, Robert had never fished!

He had his master’s degree and was working a job where he had to wear a suit and tie every day, chasing the “American Dream.”

After he hit rock bottom, his life changed for the better and he hasn’t looked back since.

In this episode he shares:

  • Why there’s never the “perfect time” to take the leap
  • What the worst-case scenario of chasing your dreams is (hint: it’s actually not that bad)
  • RV life tips (plus a hack for getting free parking)
  • How he gets paid as a YouTuber
  • The secret to catching fish in a new place (he’s used this tip to catch fish all over the world!)

What an awesome story!

I love that at his lowest point, instead of letting life continue to beat him down, Robert made a change and started really living and enjoying his life.

If you’re in a similar situation, whether you’re at rock bottom, or just stuck, I hope you can find inspiration in Robert’s story and make a change for the better.

Very cool podcast ???? After 40 years of long distance trucking I decided the fun was gone, the money just wasn’t worth it anymore. Sold everything trucking related, real estate, the whole enchalada! Moved to the big bend area and decided I’m to old to be strangled by payments and a job I hate. I’ve always been an outdoor guy. Love fishing. Now that I’ve tried saltwater,,,, WOW! I’m hooked all over again. I work enough to support myself and my fishing addiction. I am reasonably happy with it. Will never be on his scale but there are a lot of folks who think my priorities are misplaced. lol. I just made up my mind I’m not going to be held hostage to a lousy job, and big payments. I’m going to enjoy myself doing what I enjoy most! Fishing. Between what I have learned on Salt Strong and from a good friend down Crystal River way,,,,, plus basic fishing knowledge over the years,,,,, I’ve gotten to be pretty fair at this. Not to mention all the time in trial and error ???? I’m still learning this salt stuff but loving it!
