Ever since the internet caught on, people have been figuring out how to use a laptop to connect with money-making opportunities all over the world. As a result, there’s now between 3.3 million and 8 million completely untethered workers roaming the globe.
I’m thrilled to be one of them.
With just a few regular projects, I have more than enough to live well anywhere in the world.
For my husband and I, that means Cuenca, Ecuador, where we keep a three-bedroom apartment with a beautiful skyline view and a weekly maid. But if we wanted to, we could pick up tomorrow and move to Europe…spend time back in the States…or explore the next exotic “must-see” place that falls onto our bucket list.
After all, when you can communicate via email with anyone, anywhere—and earn a living via technology—why on earth would you stay in a place you didn’t want to live?
Want to spend winter somewhere warm and cheap, and then summer in Europe? You can.
Need to spend a few months with family helping out before bouncing back to travel? You can.
All you need is a computer and a skill that’s worth money.
For some, that means studying graphic design or computer programming. But there’s a faster and easier path to the well-paid nomadic life—copywriting.
That’s the formal name for the art of persuasive writing and you can use it to write sales letters, brochure copy, internet content, and all manner of promotional material.
You don’t need any particular background. In fact, a life rich with varied work experiences is one of your best assets!
As a copywriter you can earn $250 for a simple marketing email…$1,500 to $5,000 for a bigger project…or even $2,000 to $10,000 (even more when you include royalties) for a single sales letter.
My copywriter’s life makes it possible for us to be as nomadic as we like (or not, depending on the season). So whatever the mainstream media wants to call me—digital nomad, mobile creative, or even location-independent-professional—I’m happy my work gives me total freedom.
