The conventional, old school approach to long term travel is to work around the clock, save up all your money, and then get out there for as long as you can until money runs out, the dream comes to an end, and you are jarringly brought back into the “real world”. But the new school approach is by starting a side hustle so you can work online while on the road. This way you can harness the power of the internet and modern communication to sustain your travels indefinitely. Working remotely is a new reality for many, especially for wanderlusters and full-time RVers. Having a side hustle is great way to generate multiple streams of income! The beauty of it? Online work is in such great demand that you need virtually no education or experience to get started. Here’s a few unique opportunities you can take advantage of and start earning extra cash while on the road.
