8 Ways You Can Make Money When You Travel

8 Ways You Can Make Money When You TravelBy Anum Yoon

No matter how frugal you are while traveling, money also seems to go quicker than you thought it would. If there were a downside to traveling, it’d be the cost of going for as long as you want.

That’s why doing some work on your travels can extend your trip for quite a while. You won’t become rich by doing any of these jobs, but you will make enough to get by if you’re dedicated. Best of all, most of these following jobs aren’t particularly time intensive. For the most part, you can work put in a couple hours when you have some down time and enjoy your time on the road.

1. Transcription

Transcribing audio won’t exactly get the adrenaline pumping, but it’s one of the perfect gigs to do while traveling.

There’s a bit of a learning curve, but once you get good at it then it becomes easier to earn money. There are a number of online companies offering up projects. Some of the better-regarded companies include Rev and Scribie.

How to Figure out What Work at Home Job Is Right for You

How to Figure Out What Work at Home Job is Right for YouBy Holly Reisem Hanna

When I started looking for a work at home job – I didn’t care what the job entailed. I just knew that I needed to make some money and I wanted to be at home with my daughter.

I searched online, checked out the wants ads, and even asked past employers if there was ANYTHING that I could do for them. I was willing to do data entry, make phone calls, complete research, run errands, anything … I was desperate! Unfortunately, desperation is often what leads to scams. And I came across a ton of them.

When you’re looking for a work at home job you need to be clear in your intent; meaning you need to slow down and take inventory before you begin your search. What are your passions, skills, and prior experience? Do you need health insurance? Do you need a flexible schedule or can you commit to regular day-time hours? When you cast your net too wide, you fail to find the right job for you, because your search is not targeted.

To assist you on your work at home journey, here are 7 common work at home themes, companies, jobs, and ideas that will fast-track your search.

I Need a Work at Home Gig with Zero Startup Fees

When One Door Closes Another One Opens — But the Hallway Sure Sucks!

When One Door Closes Another One Opens -- But the Hallway Sure Sucks! By Kelly Robbins

Whenever you step into a new phase of life; from having a baby to working from home rather than in a corporate job, there is a transition period. The transition is that period between leaving your J-O-B and actually supporting yourself in your new business. The initial bliss of having a new baby and the reality of your 85th day in a row up at 2:00am.

Behind the new door is often what we strive to create. More money. Independence. Freedom. Happiness. Family.

I strongly believe creating all of these things is your God-given birthright. However, you have to choose it and step into creating it to make it happen.

As a business coach, I help people close one door and step into another. It’s not usually easy and it takes a strong, disciplined person to keep walking down the hallway – particularly when they can’t see the next door yet.

That hallway often feels dark, scary and unknown. It’s an in-between place and it takes faith and determination to stay the course between doors and not quit. (more…)

Here’s 15 simple career strategies that will get you noticed and hired fast!

1. Add a Case Study

What really influences us is finding a case study included in a resume or online application. Those candidates understood that when you’re looking for remote work you’re dealing with a trust issue. It is something the e-commerce industry struggled with for years. Their solution was the before/after photo or the customer testimonial. When you talk about and show results, you show you’re trustworthy and that you really know what you’re doing.
