Do you love to travel? If you want to explore the world, but be able to make money as you do just that, then it can be the dream for some. Starting your own business doesn’t have to keep you in one place, especially if your business is based on a love of travel. Many businesses, this day and age, don’t need to have a fixed store, and some businesses can even take you to visit the destinations of your dreams.
Traveling and owning a business isn’t something that you should go into lightly, as there is a lot to think about, plan, and look into, especially if it involves working in countries other than your own. Take someone like Markus Wischenbart, for example. He is a successful entrepreneur in the timeshare and vacation club industry, all around the world. His drive and success got him to where he is now, so it can be possible, but you need to really want it. But if you’re determined to make it work, then you can travel, do what you love, and build an empire at the same time. Here are some ideas to help.
If you are someone who likes to write, loves to take photos, and likes to share your advice and tips, then working as a travel blogger could be the thing that could work well for you. As a travel blogger you can visit new places, work with tourism boards, and create some helpful guides for prospective travelers. Before you get into this, you need to know that it can be a bit of a slog to get to the point where you’re paid to take these trips. It can require a lot of time and effort building up a blog, and writing about the places you visit on your own first, before a paid job. But for many, it will be worth it in the end. If you find it easier with video content, then vlogging is something to consider too, as YouTube is a go-to for a lot of travel content.
Having people to come to for some honest and some helpful advice is what people want when booking a trip. They are parting with their cash and they want to know that they will get something good for their money. Travel agents have a lot of niches and could specialize with expertise in a particular country. If you love to travel, want to travel as you work, and want to help others to book holidays, then work as a travel agent to arrange things for others, including things like tours and day trips, then it can easily be done remotely, as well as in new places. The only thing is that you might need to look at getting certification, and there could be some fees associated with that.
No matter what you do as a career, if you can do it flexibly, and you only need a laptop and internet connection to get it done, then you can do it from anywhere. You can fund your travels around the work, taking on jobs as you would as normal, but from anywhere in the world. Without rent or a mortgage in your home country to think about, you can spend your earnings on accommodation, recreation, and flights, and move around as and when you want to. No matter if you’re a tutor, accountant, graphic designer, or copywriter, you can do these things from anywhere.
