Jerry's Take

Meet Jerry Norton...

Working Virtually:

While traveling the country full time in our RV, we often drew a lot of attention. It's not very often you see a home school family with six kids traveling the country in an RV! Most people are very interested in what we're doing and ask a lot of questions. One of the questions I'm asked most frequently is, "how do you work while traveling in an RV?" I usually say something like, "I am a real estate investor" but that doesn't really explain how I'm able to still work while traveling. So I hope to be able to explain a little more here...

First of all, I'm an entrepreneur, business owner and real estate investor. I'm also an infopreneur. (information marketer). Check out my free podcast on iTunes. search "flipguys" or go here. What's unique is that my businesses are virtual. What I mean by "virtual" is that I don't have an office or employees. I manage my investments and training company right from my cell phone, iPad or laptop. This allows me to work when I want and where I want. It gives me the freedom to still be a home school dad and travel and pursue my other interests. My typical day includes waking up with the kids, having breakfast with them and kicking off the home school day with our family devotional. Then I grab my backpack and bicycle and find a place nearby (usually a gym) to set up my mobile office. 

I made a quick video while in Florida about my "virtual office." (Warning: this video promotes one of my real estate training products.) 

How Jerry Invests in Real Estate Virtually While Traveling the Country with his Wife and Six Kids...

I am a big believer in creating a "lifestyle by design," meaning you decide how you want to live your life. When my wife and I decided we wanted to travel the country in our RV with our kids, I made a conscious, concerted effort to change the way I was earning income to allow for such a trip. It took me 2 years but I never lost sight. Now when we're traveling and meet people, they often say, "I wish I could do that." I say to them, "you should, why don't you?" They often reply with something like, "I can't with my job" or "it costs too much" (by the way, it costs us less then owning a house!)

I believe if you want it enough and you take your desires to God, he and you will find a way. To me that means, being self employed and working for yourself. Do you have an idea, product or service? Learn in this presentation why 80% of businesses fail and how you can succeed.

I'm amazed at how many people are stuck in the antiquated industrial age when it comes to earning income. It's time to enter the information age. In this presentation, learn how to be truly fulfilled doing what you love (and making a lot of money too!)...

  1. Oh my gosh I'm so glad i accidentally stumbled upon this website!!! Such good info!

  2. I wish so bad that my husband could do this sort of thing. It's horrible to say, and I love him, but he is absolutely terrified of any risk whatsoever and so will be stuck in a desk job till he retires.
