No limitation to Digital Nomad jobs

You have been reading all about the location independent lifestyles that people have been living, and can see the key to all their success is to be able to make money as you go. So now you’re thinking to yourself, “what can I do to make an income?”, and a few hours later you’re still twiddling your thumbs in despair as you ponder begging for your day job back.

Stop right there! There a LOADS of ways to earn an income while travelling abroad as a digital nomad. You don’t need to be a web developer or a graphic designer, you don’t need to be an SEO copywriter or video maker either. These of course a the more popular choices for the aspiring digital nomad, but don’t let anyone tell you you are limited to just these options.

With the widespread popularity of global sourcing website such as Elance and Odesk, a lot more skills and job varieties are now in high demand. If you are a legal professional, you can earn an income doing endless amount of Patent work or just general consultancy. Accountants can find online work auditing a companies books or doing tax returns from a remote location. Even engineers can find CAD or product design work easily by looking through these jobs listings.

Of course, there is always a price to pay for working as a digital nomad and using these crowd sourcing websites – the pay is often much lower. These are some of the hits you may need to take to live your location independent dream lifestyle and in a lot of cases the money you earn will be quite good compared to the local place you are in thanks to geographic arbitrage.

Don’t restrict yourself to just job listing sites either. Set up a project on Kickstarter, like writing a fiction novel or a “how to” book, and get your funding that way. Often these projects can get up to $30k in funding!

Another alternative is to find a short term job in the destination you are currently in! Why not? Could be a good tourism type job looking for an English, German, Japanese or French speaker and you may be a good fit!

The point is not to stress or get deterred by worrying about where and how you are going to sustain an income. If you work hard enough and are smart in your choices, you will succeed, regardless of your professional background.
