In this digitalized era, internet-savvy people are moving towards flexible careers where they can work remotely from the location of their choice.
Who would not like this lifestyle?
Not everyone is built for the digital nomad lifestyle. It is meant for people who love to travel. This way of working from remote locations gives people the liberty to choose careers that excite them and people can choose to pursue their passion while earning for themselves.
Most importantly you can choose to run your own business without having to lock your down in a city. There exist businesses in the world that do not need a traditional set-up. Instead, they allow and give you the freedom to travel the world and do what you have always wanted to. There are a lot of business ideas for people who love to travel but want to be their boss. Few of these exciting and lucrative ideas and professions are discussed below.
A TRAVELLING PERSONAL ASSISTANT
Personal assistants are individuals hired to travel with influential and busy people such as celebrities, businessman and politicians. These personal assistants travel with their employers to various countries and help them in matters regarding almost everything. Personal assistants look after accommodation, scheduling meetings, getting things done for them and also managing other staff members for the employer.
As a travel personal assistant, you need to have great management and organizational skills and should also be a quick decision-maker to excel at your job.
This one is my favorite of all. While it can be a stay-at-home business for some, many people travel and produce a travel blog if they are great with writing and taking pictures alongside. Being a travel blogger you can explore a new city, visit entertainment spots, restaurants, recommend places and take attractive pictures to engage the audience. This is a painstaking and time-consuming job as you may not be able to reap the fruits of your effort soon because it can more than a year for you to establish yourself as a renowned blogger. But once you attain that level, then you should get ready to be paid to explore the world.
You can generate revenue from your blog through affiliate programs or selling ad space all of which depends on your audience reach and number of followers which in turn most likely determines your success as a travel blogger.
SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCER
If you have a lot of subscribers or fan following and people wait for your social media updates and follow your set trends then count yourself as a social media influencer. You can generate stable income being a social media influencer through affiliate marketing and sponsorship posts or pictures. A lot of well-known brands use social media influencer to advertise their product among the masses and use this way to introduce or penetrate their target market. Being an influencer you not only get paid in monetary terms but also receive PR packages and freebies to review. Some brands invite social media influencers to their events and pay them to review the event and spread the word among the masses. Some famous social media influencers charge an arm and leg for a single post or review and get rich doing so.
If you are passionate about photography and love to travel then this is the right business for you. All you need is a great camera and funds to travel to exotic places and take mesmerizing photos. Keep a record of your photos and showcase them on your blog on social media. You may get a chance to exhibit your collection in or sell your collection to a publication. People can hire you to cover their wedding events, professional magazine shoots, and corporate events. This is a great way to monetize your passion and one of the most lucrative professions for people who have a knack for traveling and exploring the world.
If you love to travel and can speak write and read multiple languages then you may choose this as your bread and butter. Many people who are affluent in other languages choose to be translators for various institutions and also people who travel often around the world for work and leisure. They can help to translate the work in written documents as well as can do it verbally. When it comes to business dealings, translators an e helpful as they help communicate and negotiate for business deals between two parties. Translators can also choose to translate books, emails, and other work-related documents for employers.
This business idea is quite similar to blogging where you utilize your creative writing skill to run your log. However, as a travel writer, you can write articles for publications and magazines, journals that pay a handsome amount for your work. Some agencies hire travel writers to write travel books. As a travel writer, you may face challenges when finding work which is not readily available but when you get work, you need to follow the guidelines of the employer to deliver work of his interest.
With the increase in the number of digital nomads around the world, people prefer to have flexible timings for their jobs which are why being a digital nomad is a perfect choice for many. Also, the desire to be their own boss makes it easier for people to opt for a business option that allows them to travel the world and explore new countries.
