To travel the world, there are many things you have to do: you have to find ways to save on the costs of hotel rooms and flights, you have to find a reliable remittance service so you can transfer money from one currency to another, and of course, you have to visit some truly scenic locations and landmarks too. And one more thing that you may have (or at least want) to do while traveling the world is to make money. Thanks to the post-modern digital age in which we live, it’s easier to make money from your laptop while traveling than ever before. The side hustle is here to stay.
Here are the top jobs you can do while traveling the world:
Perhaps the most obvious way to make money while traveling the world is through travel blogging. That being said, the competition is very stiff when it comes to the travel blog world, and it’s going to take a lot of work to make your blog stand up from the crowd before you can earn a real income from it. But as long as you commit to it, it can be done.
If you are a natural writer, it will be much easier to find a side hustle as a freelance writer on writing websites then it will as a travel blogger. You can write eBooks, blog articles, website content, technical writing copywriting, and so on.
Create a portfolio on the major freelancing websites and upload your resume and examples of your past work. At that point, you just have to start applying for gigs, whether they be one-time jobs or long-term work.
Freelance Website Designer
If your talents lie in website design overwriting, then you can absolutely pursue a career as a freelancer website designer (or graphic designer, for that matter). As with freelance writing, your best bet lies in setting up accounts in freelancing websites and applying for work from there. You’ll likely be doing one time gigs over long-term work, but each job will likely pay good money (several hundred to possibly even a few thousand dollars each).
Run A YouTube Channel
As with blogging, getting a YouTube channel up and running is tough work because there’s stiff competition. Furthermore, you have to gain at least 10,000 subscribers before you’ll be able to monetize your videos to make any money from them.
For this reason, running a YouTube channel while making money is best done if you already have a viable channel up and running that stands a greater chance of growing quickly. Just make sure that your content is quality and that you upload videos consistently.
Working While Traveling The World
Regardless of whether you want to work while traveling the world full time or if you just want to make a little money with a side hustle while going on a trip, most if not all of these options we have covered here today should work for you.
