From 1993 to 1999, I traveled and lived all over the world.
And during that time, I got to experience wonderful places like the white-sand beaches of the British Virgin Islands…the cafes of Aix-en-Provence, France…the wild summer parties of Corfu, Greece…the exotic culture of Bali, Indonesia…and more.
I also got the chance to make friends with people from all over the world.
Those were some of the greatest years of my life.
Unfortunately, I ran out of money.
You see, I never had a job that could fully support my “globetrotting” lifestyle indefinitely. So I was forced to return to the U.S., find a full-time desk job, and wonder just what in the world I was going to do next.
I wasn’t happy about it. Not one bit.
You see, the “travel bug” had really sunk its teeth in. And just about every day I was back—even when I was living in warm, sunny Hawaii—I dreamed of “getting back out there” and traveling, living, and earning income from all over the world.
But this time, I wanted to do it bigger and better than ever before.
As it turns out, freelance copywriting lets you do just that. When you’re a freelance copywriter, you can earn income from anywhere in the world.
All you need a laptop and an Internet connection.
And once you’ve got that handled—and you’ve established yourself as a freelance copywriter—you can wind up earning more money than you ever did back home!
So how much can you make? A few established writers I know pull in over six-figures per year. And some of them live and earn income in fantastic places like Hong Kong, Melbourne, and Buenos Aires…to name just a few overseas hotspots.
My first overseas destination as a globetrotting copywriter was Paris. The City Of Light! I mean…what American writer wouldn’t want to experience making money as a writer in Paris?
I wound up spending half a year in Paris—writing copy and enjoying a fantastic “Parisian” lifestyle.
I loved it.
But after six months—and way too many fresh-baked baguettes and tasty French cheeses—my feet got itchy. That travel bug was back. And I craved to “get out there” once again and see more.
So, after a brief return to the U.S. in early 2006, I set out overseas once again with my backpack and my laptop—ready to earn income while exploring the world.
And that’s exactly what I did.
When I wasn’t writing copy, I got to do things like run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain…attend the raucous beer halls at Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany…dance the night away in Ibiza, Spain…wash down pints of Guinness in Dublin, Ireland…tour the ancient highlands of Scotland…and so much more.
Eventually, my travels led me to South East Asia…which is where I live today.
My current home base is on the island of Koh Phangan. And it’s my favorite place in the world.
Here, you can enjoy postcard perfect beaches…a balmy year-round tropical climate…a sizeable expat community…amazing nightlife…tasty, exotic cuisine… and close proximity to many of South East Asia’s finest destinations.
None of this would have been possible without my copywriting income.
Freelance copywriting has helped me realize an extremely fulfilling “globetrotting” lifestyle—a lifestyle in which I can make money from anywhere in the world—above and beyond all those dreams I had for all those years.
