Some people just have travel in their bones; a compulsion to discover the wonders of the world and live a nomadic lifestyle is just a normal state for some people.
But there is a few things that can quickly stunt those plans to fly around the world and live that kind of lifestyle, one of the main things being money. While it may be possible to travel on a shoestring budget, you still need some money, particularly if you want to fully embrace your travels. A great way to overcome this problem is to combine work and travel.
While this might sound difficult to begin with, there are plenty of traditional job openings around the world, you just need to choose a job that will either guarantee travel or increase the chance that travel will be part of your job. If you thought that working and traveling was only reserves for bloggers and other internet businesses, then you’d be wrong – more traditional jobs are still required around the world.
And while it isn’t included on this particular graphic, coaching is a great job for any would-be globe trotter. Coaching skills transcend international borders, so long as you can overcome any language barriers, you will be able to deliver great coaching services anywhere in the world. If you are looking to take that direction with your career, you may want to consider hiring your own coach first.
The ongoing digital revolution is changing many industries and careers and will continue to do so at an ever-increasing rate, meaning the possibilities for completing jobs from anywhere in the world are also growing.
There is a lag between the technological capabilities and adoption; meaning the technology is there but many companies are slow to change their practices. However, studies show that giving employees greater flexibility is extremely beneficial to productivity and employee happiness. Still, it will still take some time before companies overcome old-fashioned presenteeism and fully embrace these changes.
