Whether backpacking across the world, flying from tourist spot to tourist spot, driving from coast to coast or traveling full time in your RV, you will somehow need to finance this adventure. It is very possible to convert your life from “living to work” to a “living to travel” lifestyle and start traveling full time while working part time. This post is a continuation of my previous post “Full Time Living or Bust!” – Step 2: How to Make Money on the Road.
Last year, I started what I thought would be a long term traveling adventure, but I quickly found out that I would need to have a way to make money while traveling or I would return home broke. Well, I did return home but not quite broke. I needed to re-evaluate my situation and figure out how I would earn an income while traveling. I didn’t like the idea of working for 3 months then traveling for a month then back to work for 3 months, so I needed a plan. I wanted to be able to make money while traveling but I needed to do something that allowed me to work while moving about the country or becoming Location Independent.
My Super-Huge Make Money on the Road Job List!!
You would be surprised just how many options we have for working on the road or working at home for that matter. If you are planning to take up this exciting lifestyle now or in the future, please use some ideas from this list to start building multiple streams of income. Don’t settle on one job, one skill, one craft. You need to diversify and give yourself options in case one opportunity dries up.
Below you will see my “ways to make money on the road” list with brief descriptions.
- Job Name
- Job Type
- Skill Rating – Ranges from * (easy jobs) to **** (complex jobs)
- Avg Pay – Ranges from $ (low pay) to $$$$ (high pay)
- Avg Hours Worked Weekly
The chart below lists a number of work possibilities. I have broken the list down into “Job Types” so that if you feel stronger with technology then look over the “Digital Entrepreneur” section, but if you are good with your hands then the “RV Services” section may be best for you. Don’t rely on one form of income. Try to give yourself a few different options for making money.
