How I Make Money to Travel the World (135+ Countries)


The most common question I get is “HOW CAN YOU AFFORD TO TRAVEL THE WORLD” — so I have dedicated this entire video to explain (in detail) the various revenue streams I have, which enable me to fund a life of constant travel to 136 countries since 2012.

In summary, my top 5 top revenue streams (in order) are:
#1 Sponsored trips
#2 Youtube ads
#3 Affiliate marketing
#4 Social media promotions
#5 Travel blogging

I want to stress the point that I am not rich, nor have rich parents or a big saving account. I am not a famous moviestar or a NYT best-selling author. I am just a regular 20-something kid from Arizona, who has worked very hard and has had enormous patience to get to this level.

It has been a very gradual process over the last 5 years, and I’ve had to make several pivots (in terms of my primary source of income) from Teaching English — Travel Blogging — Snapchat — Video, but it can be done by anyone who is motivated and disciplined enough, and there has never been a better time to start than RIGHT NOW.

If you have any further questions about this lifestyle, how you can get started or extra tips to make money on the road, please comment them below and I’ll do my best to get back to you. And as always, thanks for watching!
