To those of you that aren't technical, what do you do to earn money?

 

by @theblakemoore | 5yr  | 27 comments

Hey guys!

Iโ€™m new around here and thought Iโ€™d ask a question Iโ€™ve been wondering for a while now. Iโ€™m set to sample the nomadic lifestyle soon and Iโ€™m currently trying to define what my skillset is, and what Iโ€™m going to do long term.

Iโ€™m sure many of you have been through this, but itโ€™s difficult knowing what youโ€™re good at! Iโ€™m not a developer and I know there must be so many of you that arenโ€™t working in technical roles. So I was just curious, for those of you that arenโ€™t developers (or even those of you that are with an additional side-hussle) what do you do to earn money on the road?

Thanks for re-opening this @elisha!

So my nomadic journey is still going strong. Iโ€™ve done some pretty varied stuff over the past 8/9 months. I started off freelancing on PeoplePerHour and Upwork but didnโ€™t really make much money from that (competition was crazy).

I then went on a bit of a mission to pick up a remote job, and I did. I was working on a growth executive with a startup based out of NYC for 6 months. I learnt a tonne and felt I made some real steps forward in an industry I really enjoy!

I recently finished up on that though, because travelling around a tonne has really sparked my entrepreneurial spirit and I really want to start something on my own. This has been helped a lot by being in Chiang Mai for the last couple of months, there are so many business owners here who are killing it. I couldnโ€™t help myself.

So now Iโ€™ve just launched my own business called Websitely (www.websitely.co) that is a Wordpress design agency. Idea is to apply to same growth hacking principles I learnt in my previous contract to this and see what happens.

In terms of the money, Iโ€™ve got a pretty decent runway by being pretty frugal and some cash stored in the bank, so Iโ€™ve got a few months to make it happen.

So happy I made the jump though. I know working out on the way isnโ€™t for everyone and I wouldnโ€™t advise you necessarily do it the way I am doing it. One thing I did take away though is that you can learn as much (if not more) through a remote job than you can in a traditional office environment. I had so much responsibility and autonomy it was crazy. I became really strong on the project management side of things too, as planning and implementation was key when you werenโ€™t in the same location as the rest of the team!

If youโ€™ve got any more questions about anything, hit me up!

Also I was actually just interviewed for a podcast about my journey so far, if youโ€™re interested, check it out: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/01-blake-moore-on-growthhacking/id1130647335?i=1000371784277&mt=2 :slight_smile:

Iโ€™m a coach and I teach online courses on writing and practical magic.

I work with clients on Skype and I teach via webinar and Facebook groups.

Itโ€™s a pretty awesome location-independent life, and I couldnโ€™t code to save my life :wink:

I guess I have โ€œtechโ€ skills in the sense that I can set up wordpress websites and email marketing funnels, but it only took me a month or two to learn to do that, and also itโ€™s totally possible to just hire folks to build business websites for you of course.

So yes, thereโ€™s plenty of options for nomadic work that donโ€™t involve tech skillz.

When I decided to go down this path, I really wondered what I would do to put all those beers in my hand while overseas. I donโ€™t have any tech skills and did feel kind of lost and hopeless when looking for remote/freelance jobs. After a month or so of kicking ideas around in my office, I kind of woke up and realized I could just keep doing what I was doing, but as a freelancer. So I became a freelance attorney. I just told people I met through my career what I was doing, signed up on some websites, and the work started coming in! I think everyone has a skill set, or work experience, that they can translate to an income to live the lifestyle. Itโ€™s just a matter of figuring out what it is, and how to market it.

@yeoa | 5yr

Just asked this as my question in my introduction @blake and I often wonder the same thing. Reading all the responses here, it seems writing/blogging/translating are the common themes but what @gigigriffis and @ani rightly pointed out, it definitely isnโ€™t an easy way to make money for a few reasons.

Iโ€™m personally a freelance food writer (Iโ€™ve been writing for free on the side just because I love trying new food) as it is but what Iโ€™ve found is:

  • Once you use it to pay bills, it becomes quite a chore to churn out words onto a page especially if thatโ€™s not your background
  • Standing out from the crowd is not the easiest job and hitting deadlines sucks
  • Iโ€™ve never asked, but Iโ€™m not 100% sure the money you make is necessarily scalable enough to support the lifestyle unless youโ€™re quite professional - aka. the ramp up time is quite steep

Those are my thoughts anyway, not to say itโ€™s impossible, but it does seem much more difficult which is why Iโ€™m trying to find other alternatives. Learning to code/develop might not be a bad skill set to have in the long run.

Iโ€™d love to hear what others have to say outside of translating/writing - like consultancy services they may have started and their journey to success from there?

I read a LOT of travel / DN blogs and so many of them write for their blog, for other publications, other blogs etc, with NO prior experience as a writer. And itโ€™s how they make money! It seems that as a traveler, your perspective is already in demand, so much so that writing experience or skills fall second to being in a cool location that someone wants you to write about. After I learned this, it was really a, โ€œwow, anyone can do thisโ€ realization :slight_smile:

If you are a skilled and talented writer and love doing it, by all means, go for it! But please donโ€™t think itโ€™s an easy way to become a nomad or make money.

Agreed. The same goes for being a literary translator. You have to be a skillful and sensitive writer as well as have an excellent command of the languages involved. When I first started out, I had live on next to nothing, and even now I have to supplement my translation (itโ€™s all literary - commercial translation is a different story) with proofreading and editing work to make sure Iโ€™ve got something to invoice for at the end of the month.

Lucha, I translate from Russian, and itโ€™s pretty much all literary translation.

All of the work has come through word of mouth.

How do I get Travel/Medical Insurance for Portugal for visa application from Australia?

 

in Portugal by @jonathanpoh | 2d 2 days ago | 5 comments

I'm preparing my Portuguese D7 long-term visa application and one of the required documents is proof of travel insurance with medical coverage. However, as an Australian citizen, if put that as my country of residence in many travel insurance companies' quick quote forms, I'm unable to get ANY insurance coverage at all because of the current travel ban out of Australia, and the Australian govt's 'Do Not Travel' advice to ALL countries. I know that Aussies are applying for, and successfully getting visas from the Portuguese Consulate here, so where and how are they fulfilling this insurance requirement if insurers aren't selling any coverage? Does anybody know or have any ideas?

I am new to working out of coworking spaces. My business entails a lot of video conferences. I haven't chosen a specific coworking space yet but generally, what are the potential solutions for this?

Are there usually options to rent a private room by the hour with just enough room to set up my microphone and laptop? Sidenote: any coworking space recommendations in Florianapolis, Brazil would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Tax advisor for permanent nomads?


by @eljaques | 11d 10 days ago | 1 comment

I'm in need of a tax advisor who understands "our" typical situation. I'm all good on being legal on taxes at this point, but as I'm doing more investing and there's more compliance and KYC and such, it's getting more complicated to deal with this topic. Not living in my country of citizenship, company in another country, resident in yet another country, banking in a different country ... you know how it is, a pile of red flags.

Would be great to find a good tax advisor to sort things in a way that makes my situation as "explainable" and easily dealt with as possible. Any leads?

I'm thinking about taking a sailing (yachting) course in the Mediterranean Sea this coming September or October. Thus far from my research, it seems that most courses are held in locations with not many digital nomads. My thinking is that it would be more fun to go to a place with like-minded people. Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone else is interested in taking a sailing course in the Mediterranean this fall? If not, do you know a location that offers good sailing courses, where there is also many digital nomads / nomad infrastructure?

Good Place to Exercise and Learn to Paint?


by @superquest | 3yr 2 years ago | 0 comments

Hi everybody.

I want to spend a month or two learning to paint and exercising intensely. I know, itโ€™s kind of a random question but maybe someone here can help. Below a little more detail about what Iโ€™m looking for.

Painting

  • Natural or urban beauty
  • Cultural inspiration โ€“ art museum, for example
  • Some kind of non-academic visual art school would be ideal

Exercise

  • Not a gym
  • Outdoor exercise is more enjoyable to me than indoor
  • Preferably not yoga
  • Never tried martial arts, but Iโ€™m open to it

If you have any suggestion please share!

What are some good Spanish language learning resources?


by @anon82020850 | 3yr 3 years ago | 8 comments

Hey all,

I am planning to move over to South America next year, and in preparation I want to start learning Spanish.

I have started working with Duolingo, but would love to hear some advice from others in the community as to resources (apps, podcasts etc) that will help with this? Does anyone else have any suggestion as to what worked for you?

I am under no illusion that an app or podcast will probably not make me speak the language particularly well, but it will at least place me in a better position than if I made no effort to learn the language.

Once I am between native speakers and have more opportunity to practice I am sure I will improve a lot, but for now I am looking into getting a bit of a jumpstart.

Thanks :smile:

What would you like to learn?


by @munly_leong | 5yr 5 years ago | 0 comments

Just had this fun idea, what would everyone like to learn? especially if it may assist/enable/continue your nomad life possibly in another direction? I was thinking that if there was to be a nomadforum retreat this could be useful for all of us to figure out ideas for talks that we could give to teach each other :slight_smile:

Starting with me.
Internet Marketing/Analytics - Iโ€™m already diving headfirst into this currently as part of dropshipping but itโ€™ll probably be awhile before Iโ€™ve got enough experience to do this for others. Seems to be something that can co-exist well with bootstrapping.

Xamarin mobile development - Not a strong priority depending if I need to contract or if there are even remote roles out there to contract on. Currently it seems the typical full stack JS/Rails type dev is far more in demand in a remote capacity.

Unity/Unreal game engine - Ironically most of my Unity experience comes from actually successfully debugging or helping rewrite friendsโ€™ projects despite having no experience building anything of my own yet lol. Often similar problems that occur with any game development or engine though, yay for experience :wink: Similar to Xamarin the problem is laying the down the foundation for time to focus but my most immediate projects wonโ€™t be built in either quite yet.

Hello!

Iโ€™m Marta from Barcelona. Iโ€™ve studied advertising but Iโ€™ve been working all these years in costumer service and tourism. Iโ€™m very curious person and I have knowledge a little bit of everything but I donโ€™t have a special skill developed.
I have been looking for a job in costumer service remotely but spanish spoken countries to work in that way is not very common yet.

I would like to work remotely and I would like to focus in one/two specific skills (SOcial media, wordpress, seoโ€ฆ?).

Any advice from your own experience?

Anyone that have been started from zero?

Thank you! :smile:
