It already sounds like heaven doesn’t it? To become mobile and successfully make money online while traveling?
The great news is that it is most definitely possible! But are you willing to put in the effort to see these seeds bear fruit? Here are 5 hustles that allow you to work from practically anywhere in the world.
Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where I publish posts on personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and trending investing news.
Let’s get started!
#1. Take On a Commission Based Sales Position
An outside sales position is going to provide you with the freedom to travel as you please while earning money based on your monthly performance.
These types of positions don’t ground you to an office which makes it easier to become mobile.
You can take on one of these commission-based sales positions from all type of industries. The premise would be to sell a service or product for a business where you’d take a piece of the cake at the end of the month.
When you have a nice basket of clients your living expenses will be taken care of quite easily.
You can then shift your focus on creating another source of income that can either surpass your commission based sales position or continue to build both ventures while doing it from essentially anywhere in the world.
How much do commission based sales positions offer?
Commission percentage will vary from business to business in a given industry.
Expect to see from low to high anywhere from 5% to 35%.
Do I need a degree to be in sales?
More often times than not, you don’t need a degree to be in sales. Sales are based on results, not on what school you went to. Although I majored in Business Administration, we never went through sale scenarios or physically worked on that aspect.
Schools are businesses too, and professors are human beings too. Book theory is nothing compared to the real world.
#2. Create And Sell Digital Goods Online
Are you a great designer or professional in creating digital services and goods? You might want to consider selling your talents online.
Here is a list of digital services and goods you might want to consider providing online:
- Album covers
- Eye-catching thumbnails
- Posters and fliers
- Automated spreadsheets
- Vectorizing or digitizing
- Personalized business templates
- Mockups and other virtual designs
This is what makes creating and selling digital goods such an awesome gig. Not only do you get to have fun doing what you’re really good at but you get to make money online while traveling.
Like all of these hustles, you’ll see that all you need is a laptop and an internet connection to make money online.
You can make money online and you don’t even need a degree for this! If you’re good at designing, then you can make more money than the person who got a degree but never pursued the career.
Find your target audience and begin to market your service or product.
How much money can I make with designing artworks?
Depending on your niche, designers are charging anywhere between $10-$100 per design.
For example: Digitizers and vector creators can charge $10-$45 while business logo designers can charge upwards of $100 for an art with consultation included.
#3. Dropship Hard Goods on eBay or Amazon
For those of you who have read that drop shipping is dead, it simply isn’t. Drop shipping is a great way to provide value to those looking for a specific product that you are able to provide exclusively to them.
What I personally love about drop shipping is that you can be anywhere in the world and out of nowhere you receive a notification that an item sold. The following notification advises the buyer has paid and now it’s time to ship.
I pull out the laptop, order the item, and have it ship directly to my customer. Boom! Takes five minutes and there’s no labor included.
Drop shipping hard goods has allowed me to make money online while traveling with my family. It feels amazing when you learn to make money outside of a job that doesn’t require you to clock in for 8+ hours.
How much money can I make drop shipping?
If you start a drop shipping business you can earn as high as six figures in revenue. If you’re drop shipping as a side hustle, expect to earn anywhere from a few hundred dollars to thousand per month.
Clothing and apparel is a very successful niche but you can sell just about anything online.
#4. Start Consulting Online Using Fiverr
A lot of people still don’t know about Fiverr which is very surprising.
Fiverr allows you to sell consulting services online, teach a language online, show people how to level up on games, proof-read peoples papers, and so much more! Yup, all from anywhere in the world.
Do you have a passion for teaching or helping people advance in certain areas of their career? Fiverr is a great platform for you to sell online services and tutorials.
Another benefit of using Fiverr is that you can also buy other peoples services. This can further help you excel in your business endeavors.
Say your business needs a logo. Many graphic designers sell their services here for as little as $10! Now say you need an animated advertisement video with music and compelling visuals for your business. You can use Fiverr to find professionals who sell these services to you.
So, I can sell my own services AND buy other services?
This is why Fiverr should be a website all upcoming entrepreneurs need to have bookmarked.
This platform allows you to sell your service, and purchase other services without having to hire a team or spend money on an overhead.
#5. Monetize a Blog
Not only is blogging an awesome platform for you as an individual to express your opinions, but it’s also a platform where you can provide lots of value and information to the rest of the world.
When your blog begins to consistently attract traffic, you can monetize it and begin making money online.
Here are a three ways bloggers are making money online while they travel:
- Advertising their blog with Google Ads
- Selling their own product or service to their readers
- Commission from affiliate programs
If you’ve ever thought of blogging about cars, music, travel, health, fitness, or even sports, you will find blogging is a very fun way to earn money from a writers perspective.

Why wouldn’t you make money online today?
Everyone can make money online. Yes, even you. It doesn’t even have to be with any of the mentioned topics. You can create your own means of providing value to the marketplace online.
One of my first side hustles online was doing reviews. I created a website, put my creative touch on it and took action. People saw a need for what I was offering and it was the first time I made money online.
I knew that that side hustle was just the beginning.
How long does it take to make money online?
Honestly, it takes as long as you prolong it. But it’s more than that. I monetized my blog with Google AdSense the first month of inception. Yes, I got rejected multiple times, but I didn’t quit.
It’s going to take as long as you see it through. And although it took me a month to make money online from blogging, it was only cents.
It then took 15 months for my blog to be bringing in hundreds of dollars per month. Franknez.com then began to earn its first $1,000 and eventually thousands per month with some months earning 5-figures. I just kept putting the work in.
If you truly want to make money online you will find a way to do it. I support you 1000%.
