You don’t think of an executive assistant working out of a backpack or an RV, but for Amber Rose, that’s exactly what happened.

EER068: From Homeless to Executive Assistant—One Single Mom's Travels

From Homeless to Executive Assistant

When her son Riley was still small, Amber Rose was evicted from her house. She also lost her car. Homeless and struggling, she was forced to live with friends and family while she and searched for ways to work online so that she could stay at home with her boy and save the money that would have gone to daycare. Slowly she began to build work and a profile as an executive assistant. Listen in as she tells me about moving into an RV…even though she had never even been inside an RV before. We discuss travel gear, educational and homeschooling resources, becoming an executive assistant, and more.

Listen in! And please share.
