AboutUsCollageFrom Riches To Rags – On Purpose

Hi everyone, we’re Jim and Carol!

We used to live in a 4000-square-foot house with a built-in pool on an acre in suburban Chicago. We also owned TWO other properties – an older home that was used as a photography studio, and a business condominium that we used for our main business that we have run for over 25 years.

And then we sold it all!! Every stick and every brick. Our family and friends pretty much think we’re nuts, but we’re having a blast!! We took off in July, 2015 and are traveling the United States at our own pace and loving it! We’re in our mid fifties, so we do still work in order to afford this lifestyle. You can read all about what we do to earn an income on the road here.

Our current Monaco Diesel Pusher has been a member of our family since 2010. She gives us a smooth quiet ride, and plenty of room for our high-school-aged son and our 3 crazy but cute dogs.

We’ve owned our own business(es) for 25 years, and we hope to be able to semi-retire soon. We will keep portions of our business, which you can find here – www.bestprepress.com.

Carol is also a professional photographer. You can find her landscape and nature photography for sale on Fine Art America, and her stock photography on Taking Stock Images. We’re looking forward to spending our time traveling this great country, taking amazing photographs, and eventually settling someplace way more interesting than suburban Chicago.
