The Secret To Making Money While You Travel
At Divas With A Purpose, I’m here to help empower people to reach their goals. It’s all about motivation and inspiration. Now, I know that many of you have a deep motivation to get out there and see the world. It’s an amazing way to build life experiences, and connect with new culture. It’s a way to become the best you possible.
The one thing that holds a lot of people back is money. Even the most frugal travelers know that flights, accommodation, and food is expensive. Luckily, I’m also somewhat of a budgeting and finance guru! And, I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help you earn money while you’re on your travels. Here are just a few of the best ways to earn on the go.
Become an instructor or tour guide
Rather than being a tourist, why not be the guide? Flip the tables, and get paid for showing people the world. It’s a wonderful way to learn more about the places you’re visiting. Plus, it’s particularly well paid compared to the traditional bar or waiting jobs. Plus, you can tailor it to your own hobbies. You could take a ski instructor course, and spend your day on the slopes. You could teach rock climbing, or become an art gallery guide. Use your passions and experience!
The best thing about freelancing is that you need nothing more than a laptop and an internet connection. Luckily, you can find that just about anywhere in the world these days. All you need is a cafe or hotel with wifi, and you’re all set. It’s the perfect way to earn for freelance writers and photographers.
Write a blog
if you don’t like the idea of freelancing for others, why not start your own blog or website? It’s easier than ever to start making money from your own website. Combine it with your travels, and turn it into a travel blog. Use adverts, affiliate sales or an online shop to monetise the site, and start collecting an income. Simple.
Training to be an au pair is another lucrative way to make money while traveling. Foreign families will pay good money for their child care. Even better, they often love an au pair who speaks English, and can teach their children during the day.
Teach English as a Foreign Language
Speaking of teaching people English, why not make that your traveling job? All you need is a TEFL qualification, and you can teach anywhere in the world. Some of the most popular destinations are China, Japan, and South America.
Of course, there is always the option to take on season work. This is often a great route if you just need a week or two of wages to help you on your travels. Anything from fruit picking to manning a ski lift to waiting tables will bring in some quick cash.
If your life goal is to travel, make sure you find a way to keep the money flowing. Good luck, and send me a postcard!
