As someone who travels for the majority of the year, the biggest question I get asked is, "How do you afford to travel all the time?" People think I'm constantly on a permanent vacation, but the secret lies in the work I do when I'm not posting about my travels on social media. It isn't the easiest at times, but I've definitely figured out how to travel full-time and still make money when I'm on the road.
I freelance write and edit as my full-time job while I'm traveling, which has proven to be both challenging and rewarding in so many ways. I love the flexibility my job offers, I'm able to do something I'm passionate about, and I have the opportunity to share my experiences with the rest of the world. Through my travels, I've met other people who run social media for brands, do graphic design, teach music lessons via Skype, and more, all from their hotels, Airbnbs, and hostels across the globe.
So, if you've been thinking about trying out the digital nomad lifestyle, but aren't sure where to begin, here are a few job options that can help you continue to earn money when you're on the road. As someone who has lived and breathed this lifestyle for the past two and a half years, I can safely say that taking a chance on it is 100% worth it.
