The Digital Nomad Lifestyle is quickly becoming one of the most desirable and sought after ways to create an income online, ditch the daily 9-to-5 grind, and allow people the freedom to be their own boss.
I feel like 10-15 years ago, these people would have been looked at as absolutely crazy.
They were either quitting their careers or day jobs, dropping out of college and/or moving off to far away 2nd/3rd world countries.
It seems like more and more the past few years, people have been popping up all over social media calling themselves, Digital Nomads. Who work remotely (meaning wherever they feel like), using solely their laptops/devices and the internet.
But Everything Online is a Scam Though, right? …WRONG!
The whole world is moving online and using the internet more and more for business purposes. Those individuals were just the first ones to take advantage of this new way to make a living and have a career, or even better, a business of their own.
So, What Are They Doing?
- Selling products on Amazon/E-bay
- Writing blogs
- Business Consultants
- Social Media Ad Agency
- Affiliate Marketing
- Network Marketing
- Social Media Influencers
- Creating their own courses and books, teaching others how they can become digital nomads.
As you can see, there are many different ways to make a living online. Some focus on becoming experts in one area, while others do a couple of these at the same time.
It is all personal preference and whatever your energy, time, money, and skill-sets will allow you to do.
Many of these, if not all of them, can be learned. So, if you are like us and didn’t know how to do any of this, don’t worry. There are a lot of different ways to learn how to do these things.
You can watch videos on Youtube, join Facebook Groups, purchase people’s books, find coaches and mentors willing to teach you personally what to do.
The best and most efficient way to start making a living online is to invest in yourself. Start reading books on business and personal development. Search Facebook and other social media platforms for people doing what it is you’d like to do and follow them. Invest in courses, training, and setting up a proper business.
Anyone who tells you their business opportunity is “free to join” and doesn’t involve any “upfront cost” is selling you a bag of fool’s gold and false hopes.
It takes money to make money in this world.
It doesn’t have to be an extravagant amount of money, but if free is all you are willing to invest in yourself and your business, then chances are that business isn’t going to get you where you want to be.
Nothing worth it comes free or easy. Remember that.
You need to first focus on your, “Why“. Why do you want to create a living online? Is that “Why” strong enough to push you during the days you don’t want to do it or feel like quitting.
Then think about your, “What“. What is your business going to revolve around? What issues will it solve? What kind of impact will it have?
Next you need to find your, “How“. How will you be creating this business? How will you choose the proper platform to run your business? How will you finance this business?
Lastly, ask yourself, “Am I going to see this through without quitting on myself, my family and future?” If the answer is, “Yes“, then you are ready to get started creating!
Take the options above and try out the ones that make the most sense to you.
The hardest part is not giving up. Make sure to have an accountability partner that holds your feet to the fire when those moments come where you want to pack it all in and just go back to your day job.
Failure is not an option.
Know that failures are merely lessons and steps closer to getting where you want to be.
Which Of These Are We Doing?
We have combined a couple different things together to get WisdomInWander off of the ground and on the path we’re on today.
Writing Our Blog, Affiliate Marketing, Network Marketing, and Direct Sales of High-Ticket Products.
During our journey of trying to figure out how to actually create an income online, we met these Freelance Digital Marketers who were living the type of lifestyles we wanted for ourselves.
They were willing to take us in and teach us everything they knew. Plugging us into their Step-by-Step Training Academy and giving us access to the 90% automated business platform they were using.
Selling high-ticket products has allowed them to live comfortably off of even a handful of sales a month if they wanted.
Which relieved the stress of having to sell hundreds of products like t-shirts and essential oils.
The system they used also came with it’s own landing pages, sales funnels, automated email marketing, and sales team. Plus, an exclusive partnership with the manufacturer and distributor of the high-ticket products they sold.
All that is required of us is marketing on social media and being ourselves. Placing our offers in front of the right audiences and then making a commission off of the sales that come from our marketing efforts.
It’s an honor to now be able to say that those Freelance Digital Marketers, are our personal coaches and mentors who we work with on a weekly basis. Updating each other on our wins for the week (accountability partner) and sharing tips/tricks we discovered over the week.
After years of struggling to figure out how to actually create a real sustainable business online, we’re finally making it happen!
