Here’s a list of recommended software and services that you may find helpful in your business.
List, Label, Ship
List, Label, Ship is a service that allows you to label your products as you add them to your shipping plan. This helps streamline your process, doing away with the need to handle your inventory more than twice. This service prints a label straight from your shipping plan to your Dymo or Zebra printer. It’s very affordable at $5 per month, well worth it for the streamlining of your process that it allows.

If you’re going to raise a family on the road, homeschooling is a must. While I handle most of the reading, writing, and arithmetic myself without much of an official curriculum, when it comes to teaching my children civics, government, and economics, there is no better source of information that the Ron Paul curriculum. What other program includes teaching personal finance?

There are many camping memberships you can belong to that provide discounts on nightly rates. Some are inexpensive, but only provide small 10% or so discount. There are some memberships that provide steep discounts, but are prohibitively expensive to join.
I’ve found that Passport America works best for those RVing families who are not in a position to spend thousands of dollars to join Thousand Trails. The price is only slightly more than the cheaper Good Sams membership, but their normal discount is 50%, and is good at thousands of parks across the country.

They are a very homeschool-centric group that encourages involvement by the entire family, instilling a sense of entrepreneurship in children. They also have their own private Facebook group.
