The Best Remote Work Opportunities For People Who Live To Travel


digital nomad

If you were born with itchy feet and adore travelling the world and experiencing new cultures, you’ve likely dreamt about having enough money to spend the rest of your life on the road.


While winning the Lotto is likely off the cards, it doesn’t mean that travelling the world is out of your reach. In fact, many people today are travelling full time and the best part? You don’t have to be rich (although it certainly can’t hurt, can it?).


In this article, we’re going to look at some of the best remote work opportunities for people who live to travel! Are you ready to jet off on an adventure?


Teaching English


As you may have guessed, the first and most obvious remote work opportunity that is accessible to anyone who is proficient enough in English: teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL / TESOL).


There is plenty of opportunity to work in desirable locations all over the world if you are willing to pursue this option.


Want to live and work on a tropical island in Thailand? Fancy a stint in Columbia? How about a year or two in Japan?


While teaching English certainly isn’t for everyone, and the salary isn’t exactly renowned for promoting a life of luxury, it still remains one of the most popular and accessible remote work opportunities for people who live to travel!


Hospitality


Whether you are an experienced chef, a restaurant manager, or you have experience working in hotels, there are plenty of opportunities in the hospitality industry overseas.


Can you imagine snatching up a gig as a bar manager in the Maldives? Or running your own kitchen in New Zealand?


Put yourself out there, and you’ll be amazed at what remote working opportunities you can find!


Sales and Marketing


Sales and marketing are excellent options for those who have no desire to teach and can’t imagine working in a bar or hotel.


If, however, you’ve got the gift of gab and feel like you can sell ice to the Eskimo, you’ll find no shortage of sales jobs abroad – whether it be in recruitment, SEO, or something entirely else.


Of course, you can sell SEO in Sydney, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to stay put! Once you’ve gathered plenty of experience and you are ready to move onto the next destination, you can continue your career in search engine optimisation, only in a more flexible capacity.


How?


There’s a new breed of remote worker: the digital nomad…

The Digital Nomad Life


When it comes to remote work, you can’t beat the life of a digital nomad. If you have a laptop, a stable WiFi connection, and have any of the following skills, you’ll be laughing:


  • Copywriting.

  • VA.

  • Trading crypto.

  • Social media management.

  • E-commerce.

  • Affiliate marketing.

  • Online teaching.

  • Video production.

  • Graphic design.

  • Translations.

  • Programming.

  • Illustration.

  • Web design.

  • Voice acting.

  • Blogging.

  • And so much more!


Make no mistake: The life of a digital nomad isn’t for everyone. It takes a certain level of discipline, as in most cases, you will be freelancing.


This means that you are in full control of your earnings, (which isn’t always a good thing if you have a few bad months).


In any case, being able to work from anywhere you want and build your own business and side hustles is the ultimate way to earn a living – especially if you are obsessed with the prospect of travelling and have many beautiful cultures to tick off your bucket list.
