You can probably guess what I’m about to say from the subject line but it needs to be said again…
I BOUGHT MY DREAM RV!
Let me set the stage for you.
It was September 18, 2020. I felt frustrated because Nick and I (if you’re new around here, Nick’s my fiance) had been scouring RVTrader, Facebook Marketplace, and Craigslist since the beginning of August when we found out we didn’t qualify for a house.
I joined a Facebook Group (y’all know my love for them) for FT RVers and decided to stop waiting for one to come to me. I set an intention to get clear on what I wanted and VOICE MY DESIRES, no matter how insane they seemed to others.
Here’s what that looked like:
I was met with mixed responses. Most people were super excited to follow along on our journey, many people offered tips and links to low-budget, but there were a few that had to bring me back down to Earth.
Well, they THOUGHT it was their job to.
“You’ll need a budget 2x that!”
“It took YEARS for me to find mine, you need to be patient.”
I really let what they said get to me. For a few days, I wasn’t so sure all my big RV plans would become my reality.
Maybe I WAS dreaming too big.
Maybe I SHOULDN’T expect to get everything I want for so little.
Maybe I AM expecting too much, too quickly.
But, you already know how this story ends…
September 26, 2020.
We bought our dream RV.

COME ON, PEOPLE.
When I brought up to my life coach that I feel like I don’t set goals for myself — or when I do, I never seem to achieve them — she was quick to point out how untrue that was.
“You set big, scary, Earth-shattering goals, Erin. Just because you don’t set menial monthly goals doesn’t mean you don’t set them,” she told me.
Want to know my goals?
These are massive goals. And every day, the actions I take get me closer to them. Like buying the RV… I just got myself one step closer to traveling the world with my love.
Where do we go from here? Well, from now on, I’m releasing what no longer serves me. That includes those minuscule goals that I set for my business because someone on Instagram told me I had to set them.
Because it’s not about selling 5 First-Time Freelancer Bundles (a real goal I had back in May). It’s about making a decision and going after what you want… what you TRULY want.
So, what massive goals are you setting for yourself and your freelance business? Leave them in the comments below so I can support and encourage you!
