How to Make a Living from the Road, Soon to be a Documentary



Yeah, we’ve written just about everything you need to know about how to make a living from the road, but wouldn’t you like to see it as a documentary as well?

While we’re not a part of the documentary, nor do we even really know the folks who are making it, various good friends of ours have nothing but wonderful things to say about Drew and Christine Gilbert, digital nomads and filmmakers currently running a Kickstarter campaign to get their documentary, The Wireless Generation, off the ground.

Do me a favor, and head over to their Kickstarter campaign, watch their video, and pledge something to the project. $1, $5, or $100, it all helps. They’re less than $3000 away from success, and I’d love to know that some of us Wanderers helped them get the rest of the way there!

If you’re not familiar with Kickstarter, it’s a way for people to raise money to get their next project off the ground. It could be a small business or an art project. People can ask for $1500 or $100,000. It’s not charity, you’re not “donating” to the project. You’re pledging an amount of money to see something you can benefit come to life. In the case of the Wireless Generation, you could walk away with a copy of the documentary once it’s produced, tickets to one of their live premiers, a t-shirt or your name in the credits, depending on how much you pledge. But more importantly, we’ll all have a chance to see what promises to be an amazing piece of film.

The thing is though, if they don’t meet their goal of $35,000 in the next 40 hours, they get nothing. None of it. Nada. It’s not a scheme, it’s not a game, it’s the way Kickstarter ensures that projects that aren’t fully funded won’t end up being only partially funded, leaving the creators short on the necessary funds and the backers possibly empty handed as well.

What are you waiting for? Make it happen!
