Have you ever dreamed of breaking free from the ‘rat race’ and working for yourself doing something that you love? Being able to earn a living and enjoy doing it is something a lot of people can only dream of. Up until a couple of years ago, I was the same.
But since taking this blog a little bit more seriously and investing some time, effort and a little money, I am lucky to say it is helping me earn an income and support my little family. Sure, I still work part-time but I do love my little job so being able to supplement my income is perfect.
How do you go about changing careers?
That’s the hard part, isn’t it? How to know what to do and when the best time to do it is? There are many real and viable ways of building your own business and becoming your own boss. There are many different ways of being able to change your career regardless of where you are in life and the direction you choose to take.
Choosing Travel as your New Career.
Branching out in the world of travel could be a great way to earn an income and become your own boss. If you like to travel and have a knack for exploring not only the world but also finding the best deals around this could be for you.
If you have the time and finances you could become a travel blogger, working your way around the world as you explore different hotspots and countries bringing your travels to life via video and words. There is a huge travel blogging community and whilst it will take time, dedication and a hefty amount of funds, think of all the amazing adventures you could have as you make your way around the world and share your journey with like-minded people.
Work as You Travel
Maybe your skills could lead to you being able to work whilst you travel? Could you use your talents to work on the go and earn an income stream as you flit from one country to the next? That way choosing travel as your new career wouldn’t be as big a leap as it first appears.
If this isn’t a viable option for you, have you thought of becoming a self-employed travel advisor? You don’t have to work in a high street branch to be able to sell holidays. If you are looking for work that you can build around your family life and develop from home, maybe looking at options like a buying a franchise from Explorer Travel could be what you are looking for. With full training provided to help you make the most out opportunities available, it is definitely worth considering if you would like to build your business as you work from home.
