If anyone knows of a website or has an idea of where I could search… I am trying to find listings for jobs (employment for my husband or myself) that would let us move and live a less conventional life! I am in dire need to get away from this mundane life. I don’t even know where to start! My husband has mechanical experience/ works on cars and is working 60 hrs a week as a truck driver and I want to find an opportunity for him to work hard but to also have time to enjoy life and get away from this cycle of work your butt off to pay bills, have nothing left over, and start it all over again the next week – no time for life or family. Being self-employed or working doing something that you can feel good about and take pride in would be such an amazing change! And I want something that will take us away from Iowa.
Someone posted a website on here for www.coolworks.com and this is exactly the kind of thing I’m looking for except we need permanent positions as we have a 17-month old and are looking for somewhere to settle.
My husband is not sold on the off-grid idea, but if I could find somewhere with a little of both worlds or with like-minded people, I think both of us could be happy. I want to garden and plan to home school our child. My husband is a hard worker but he thinks we are just stuck in this life as it has been handed to us, I want to think outside the box and find something different and provide a better life for ourselves and I would love to find community.
Any ideas would be appreciated! Thank you!!
