“There are definitely times that are deeply uncomfortable. It’s too hot, it’s too cold, I'm thirsty, I'm hungry, the bus is broken down, I wanna cry. But it’s the trade-off... I’m also having breakfast in Sedona and having really amazing experiences.” - Spike
“Get outside of your comfort zone. It’s definitely worth taking the risk and putting yourself out there to make the mobile income work.” - Elizabeth
