How to Finance a Travel Lifestyle

It is quite a mystery for a lot of people how prominent influencers on social media could sustain their lifestyle traveling to different places. But of course, if you are not really a billionaire, traveling and living the life of what you see on Instagram can easily drain your funds. So how exactly do you maintain a travel-friendly lifestyle?

Don’t get a 9 to 5 job in an office


The first thing that you don’t want to do is to get a nine-to-five job that gets you stuck in your office. What you want is a job that allows you to be mobile. You want to be given the freedom wherever you want to go. And because of this, you also want to stick to a job that doesn’t require you to stay in one location. Perhaps, you want to be a consultant that requires only skype interviews every now and then. Or perhaps, you want to take on a freelancing career

wherein you can actually take the job anywhere that has an internet connection.

So what type of jobs can you get as a freelancer? Maybe, you can earn some money as a copywriter? As a copywriter, you will be able to write about things that you are knowledgeable about or maybe things that you are very passionate about. You can even stick to editing work of copywriters.

Earn From A Website

You can also earn some money from a high-traffic website. This can be a good way to earn money for your travel. There are other travelers who actually write their travel stories and earn from them via traffic. You can also earn from reviewing items that are relevant to your niche. In fact, some travel bloggers are actually earning money from commissions.

Earn From YouTube

Having your own YouTube channel can make a huge difference in the long run. But of course, you have to be aware of the latest rules implemented by Youtube. You will need to meet the minimum number of views and followers before you can even get to receive money from YouTube. Most of the time, people don’t realize just how expensive it can get in order for you to become a travel blogger that can earn from your video content. You will need to invest in a good camera and even have an idea how to edit. For a lot of people, this process can be taxing and may not be feasible at all.

Have your own business online

Dropshipping is a great business that you can run even in your own living room. You can have this business with minimal risks. You can actually get high selling products and even choose how much profits you can keep. You will just have to be aware how to use online marketing.

Maintaining the travel lifestyle can be very difficult especially if you don’t have an idea how to fund all the cost that is related to it. You will have to understand that these are just some tips that can help sustain the lifestyle that you want. But of course, there is still no guarantee.
