Would not it be great to travel the world and get paid for doing so? When most people think about traveling, they think of the two outdated 'travel models.'
1) Work really, really hard and save a lot of money. Once you have 'enough cash,' you travel for as long as you can before going broke and getting another job (or go back to your old one).
2) Travel as a part of your job. These would be low-paying jobs like working on a cruise ship, as a tour guide, bartender, adventure sport instructor, or simply getting a regular job in an exotic location. A better option, to be sure, but …
How can you travel where your heart desires, 'working' at something that fascinates you? The answer is closer that you may imagine, and a lot more attainable. No, you do not have to sell anything to your friends or join a cult. I present to you option 3.
3) Utilize simple technology to automatically provide people with value. For doing so, you make money.
Sound like fun? It definitely is.
The underground movement of travelers who hold no jobs and 'work' out of internet café's and on laptops a few hours a day (or a week) grows larger every day. Here are some quick ways you can join this group.
Film your travel adventures and drive Internet traffic using your videos. You're taking pictures and videos anyway, so why not make some money for doing so? Did you know you can use sites like YouTube and Flickr to send traffic to websites that will pay you for the traffic?
Write about your travel adventures. Most 'travel writers' work like mad to make a few measly hundred bucks selling their stories to travel magazines. Instead, land a high-paying job on Elance or Guru … or better yet, post your stories to your own easy-to-create blog and make a Google AdSense income off of your readers.
Become a salesman for the largest store in the world … eBay! This is one of the most under-appreciated travel-income methods of all time. Most people think they have to ship a physical product on eBay … which limits your inventory to what you could fit in your luggage or backpack. Unfortunately (fortunately for you!) This is completely wrong. You can sell digital products like e-books and courses on eBay and never pay a red-cent for shipping. For physical products, you can also easily setup a fulfillment center that will ship your stuff without your ever having to lift a finger.
Drive internet traffic to sites using simple techniques. Can you get on an online forum and answer other people's questions about a subject? Then you've got enough skill to drive internet traffic! If you send traffic to websites looking for customers on your subject, you can get paid for it.
Making an income while traveling is not as difficult as it may seem … you just need to take action on a few simple steps that not many people know about. Soon, you will be making more money while traveling than you would if you had a 9-5 job! The only thing stopping you is taking action.
