Looking to work online and travel the world, but don’t know where to start? Do you have 30+ tabs open on your browser with various “get paid to travel” blog posts, recommending anything from working in a hostel to learning how to code? After getting a LOT of emails and DMs from people asking more questions on how to create a digital nomad lifestyle, I wanted to go a little more in depth on one of the methods I’ve used to work online and why I recommend it for most people!
How did you grow your following on social media? Have you ever bought fake followers for Instagram? Have you ever bought something because an influencer advertised it? Spilling my answers to ALL of the above in this post in this completely transparent blog post. I was interviewed by my girl Ashley earlier this year on Instagram, influence as a blogger, and social media marketing in today’s age - here it is!
There is often one thing that prevents those who seek a true “digital nomad” lifestyle from actually doing so: building and creating a profitable online income that is sustainable, and flexible enough to support themselves while they travel the world. It is no easy feat. Working online for yourself requires self-motivation, commitment, and drive to be able to be accountable to yourself and bring enough money in monthly to make it happen.If you dream of living a lifestyle where you can live wherever and work whenever, then this post is for you.
doTERRA, a brand known for its soothing and energy-inducing oils, is also making an impact around the world.
They reached out to me about an event their foundation, Healing Hands, was putting on in San Diego recently. Since I was traveling out of the country, they offered to send some oils my way in exchange for spreading their message about Healing Hands. After taking a look at what their foundation and Wellness Advocates are doing around the world with Healing Hands, I was happy to do so!
I asked if we could do an in-depth interview about Healing Hands Foundation, what they do to impact the people around the globe, and if there are opportunities people can get involved with to work, volunteer, or support around the world!
A few years ago when I was getting the itch to travel more and be at my cubicle less, I would scour the internet for articles, inspiration, jobs, something that could help me create a meaningful career but still allow me to do it while seeing the world. Fast-forward to 2019, and I've not only replaced my desk job salary with my online income, but I've been living this location-independent lifestyle for almost 2.5 years.
From reading your email replies and messages, many of you have expressed the desire to be able to have a meaningful career while not giving up the ability to travel the world whenever you want to. Here are some popular routes to creating an online income I came across, that I've since learned are typically a "slower route" for earning an online income.
Since many of you post travel photos on Instagram and often use the platform for blogging, landing freelance work, or to support your resume for your work + travel lifestyle, I have to share with you the exciting new update that Tailwind (a scheduling app for Pinterest and Instagram) came out with that helps you find the best hashtags for your posts!
