Have you thought of traveling and still being able to meet your job demands? It sounds impractical but not beyond the bounds of possibility. In this episode, we get insights from Ashley Logsdon, who has been traveling full-time from state to state with her family.
Ashley takes families from surviving to thriving by helping them uncover how “the uniqueness in each of us strengthens all of us”. She guides parents through identifying their strengths – and also their triggers – to live with intention and not simply a reaction to the chaos of an ever-growing family. Through her podcast, blogging, coaching and personality “snapshots”, she provides tools and action steps to aid families in creating a life they love to come home to. Ashley, her husband (and Mama Says Namaste podcast co-host), three unschooling daughters and dog are RVing the States full-time. They focus on authenticity, awareness, and embracing love in the present moment.

Where were you today and how long are you there?
As of the time of writing, Ashley and family are in the state of Florida for a month or so.
Why did you decide to travel?
She always dreamed of travel and most of the time she had this bucket list of things that they wanted to do one day. Unfortunately, this ‘one day’ never happened until they put a date on it and set off. Eventually, it became a lifestyle and they’ve been doing it more often.
What opportunities have opened up because of your travel?
To her, it has been a mix of social media and the actual travel. For instance, they get to meet people whom they’ve been interacting with on social media. It has also allowed them to meet people that they work with online and even fostered their business relationships further. Likewise, they get to meet up with other like-minded travelers and share experiences together.
You’re a very creative person and you think out of the box in every area of your life. How do you think and act creatively to find unique and better solutions?
First of all, Ashley grew up in an entrepreneurial family and she claimed to have learned so much from her father. She likes to think that she possesses the knack for problem-solving. For instance, the issue back then was how she could enjoy traveling and still earn a living. And so she thought of renting out their place to Airbnb and also looked for virtual assistant jobs, which she does remotely from wherever they go. So it’s always about figuring out a way from any tricky situation. And like her dad always told her, “it’s not a problem, it’s an opportunity for a solution”.
How do you earn money traveling with family?
Ashley has multiple sources of income. She has her own company – Mama Says Namaste – and she’s a family coach and virtual assistant for a number of businesses. Her house that she rents out through Airbnb is also an important asset for her.
What opportunities are out there for entrepreneurs who want to travel?
There are tons of communities out there to meet including RV entrepreneurs and digital nomads. You can do service work, virtual work, work seasonally in different places, just to mention, but there are a lot of creative activities that one can do.
Why did you decide to create an online course?
Ashley always wanted to do a course down the road but she never knew how to start. Not until her friend, who has a company that creates courses, approached her about creating a course for RVs. Together, they decided to make it happen and came up with a course called https://onlinecoursecoach.com/roadtripwebinar. Truth is, it takes 90 days to lay an old habit to rest and create a new habit. So they gave it 90 days and afterward decided they were in it for the long haul. Among the goals of their course include educating people on how to RV with family and still handle a busy working lifestyle.
Talk about the power of collaboration and how you leverage it with your network?
She does do affiliate programs with other course creators and related online businesses. It has helped widen her audience as well as the scope of her business. She also earns commissions from affiliate programs, while creating a win situation for her partners too.
