Hello! Who are you and what business did you start?

Hey there! My name is Kristin Hanes and I’m the publisher at The Wayward Home and podcaster at The Wayward Home Podcast, an online business dedicated to helping people achieve alternative living dreams, whether that’s van life, RVing, living on a sailboat or buying a tiny home.

Over the past six years, I’ve grown my site to make up to $28,000 per month during peak season. Unfortunately, I was recently hit by a Google update called the Helpful Content Update in September of 2023, bringing my monthly revenue down to $10,000.

But this is just part of blogging, and I’m resilient and dedicated to bringing my revenue back up, and even to higher levels. Blips in the road are just one part of entrepreneurship and something all of us must…
