How do I work online, making money, while I’m on the road?
I’ve told you a little bit about my routine while I’m traveling, which involves a lot of time working online. I’ll be upfront with you guys: it’s a lot of work. I invest a lot of time for not much monetary return.
That being said, the freedom to get away from an office, do the type of work I want, pick projects that will build my portfolio, and to be traveling through our magical world…getting paid in those experiences makes it worth it for me.
Also, it feels good to stay at a hotel knowing I earned enough that day to pay for the room 😉
Cut to the chase: how am I making money online, and how much? Here we go!
What exactly are intentions and why are they worth talking about?
Heading to Burning Man on the #Cobrabus this summer, we stopped before the burn and did an activity called an intention circle. This was the first time I’d done one, but I’d heard of them. Essentially, everyone gets in a circle and takes turns sharing what they hope to get out of a particular experience. Until this point, I hadn’t consciously thought of what I wanted to gain from the awesome opportunity of attending Burning Man.

Doing an intention circle empowered me to take more control over my experience. To work toward goals, to be mindful, and to get the most of out the burn. For this trip, I’ve been thinking about my intentions so that I make the most of this once in a lifetime chance.
This is also something that I would encourage you to do at home! It can be something big – like Burning Man, but it doesn’t have to be that serious. I do intentions for small things too, like when I go out for the day. “I’m open to new experiences and I’d like to meet new people”. Voila! It’s as easy as that guys, and you’ll be amazed at how differently things start going for you. 🙂
I haven’t even left yet and I’m already missing all your beautiful faces!
