Why Are Digital Nomads A Thing?
The lifestyle of being a ‘digital nomad’ has caught the fancy of many across the world, and a growing number of young people in their 20s and their 30s are now opting in for this lifestyle. However, we understand that earning while you are traveling is not a piece of cake. Yet, so many young men are taking the great risk of trying their hands with this millennial way of living.
If you know that digital nomad lifestyle is your call, these 10 jobs will help you sustain it for a good time in the long run.
#1. Freelance For Remote Clients:
This is an umbrella term for a number of jobs that you can do online, and the list of freelancing websites is long. However, you have to need to establish yourself first as a competent and serious freelance professional who is doing the gigs for passion and not for small-time pocket money. You should also be habitual in maintaining a schedule and deliver on time to your clients.
#2. Travel Blogging:
Your travel is your work when you are a travel blogger and its fun if you are passionate about it. However, building a blog takes time, and while you are still garnering readers who will provide you a steady income, you should preferably continue with your gigs. Google Ad Words, metrics and other tools will help you monitor and monetize your blog as you keep learning.
#3. Hostel Helper:
You can volunteer for popular hostel chains or local bread and breakfast living accommodations such as making beds, manning the reception, doing small errands, etc. However, you may not find such facilities everywhere.
#4. Teach English:
We know that it is quite a cliché and it has been beaten far many times even after it died. Surprisingly, it still works to an extent in poorer South East Asian countries and to now even some Latin American countries. However, you should be armed with a college degree and some kind of certification such as TESOL or TEFL.
