5 Tips for Running a Business as a Full-Time Traveler - by Guest Contributor Lauren Wiseman

Mere years ago, the idea of carrying your career in your laptop was not just impractical, but ridiculed. And yet, here we are, living the dream! Working remotely is not all rainbows and unicorns, of course, especially when you’re stuck at an airport with an eerily close deadline for a VIP client, or wondering if your computer will ever connect to a cafe’s Wi-Fi.

But we somehow make it work. We live to tell the tale of how our business-on-the-go flourishes despite any setbacks we may come across.

Here are the five tips you can use to kick-start your own nomadic lifestyle while you build your lucrative career!

How to Make Money While Traveling - A Guest Post by Lauren Wiseman

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness,” wrote Mark Twain in The Innocents Abroad. And indeed, traveling is a great way to broaden your horizons, explore new cultures, and get in touch with your inner self.

Wouldn’t it be great to just pack your bags and hit the road? Sure it would, but such motivational quotes don’t have much in common with how things work in real life. It’s hard to drop everything and travel when you work a 9 to 5.

Before I knock the wind out of your sails, here are a few ways to make money while traveling that I’ve personally learned over the years. Who knows, maybe that can turn one of these tips into a digital nomad lifestyle!

How to Take Photos of Yourself While Traveling Solo - A Guest Post by Max Therry

When you’re traveling, it’s important to take photos as a reminder of your journey. But what if you want to create memories of these great locations and you’re traveling alone?

If you don’t have a companion to take photos of you, all is not lost. It’s quite simple to set up a decent self-portrait regardless of whether you use a camera phone, a DSLR, or a compact camera. All you need is a little time and preparation, and hopefully this short guide will give you a few ideas to put into practice.

Reclaiming My Own Power Through Travel - A Guest Post by Ashley Greenway

Growing up, my family wasn’t exactly the travel type of family. In fact, my first experience on a plane wasn't until I was 22. At that time, my job required me to fly to Dallas. This trip wasn't a vacation, but I would have a chance to see a new city.

It was my first taste of the travel life, and I had dreamed about this day forever!

As the trip approached, doubt and fear began to creep into my mind. Most of the stories I had heard about heavier people flying were terrifying. We’ve all heard them. . . the stories of heavier people having to purchase two seats just so they can fit, or of average-sized people getting angry because they feel too crowded sitting next to a heavier person. 

Finding a Work-Life Balance While Traveling

Most people can forget about work during their annual vacations. Digital nomads, however, never really stop working, but they never really get off vacation, either.

The life of a digital nomad can be quite hectic, and finding a proper work-life balance is, therefore, extremely important.

I have been traveling and working for 5 years now, and I’m proud to have picked up a lot over the course of half a decade (damn, time moves quickly!). Here's some of the “wisdom” I've gained during that time.
