How do nomads earn money for their travels ? I am a student and i want to live like a nomad as soon as a finish school . How to start ?
How to start earning money to live like a nomad ? Where can i find some experienced travelers or nomads to chat with ? Thanks in advance !
First you need a marketable skill. There are some people that have managed a nomadic lifestyle after being a student, but most have a few years of work experience under their belt. They have marketable skills that they take on the road.
Alternatively you can set up a web business. Have a look at www.locationindependent.com and travel blogs of nomadic travellers (like http://almostfearless.com/about/). http://www.businessbackpacker.com/.
Lots of them detail how and what they do to sustain their lifestyle. You could also contact them to ask advice.
Have a look at the book 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss.

I believe there is no simple answer to your question but I agree with Vickie-you need either skills or capital, which means skills again. It took me 12years to get both, now I am independent. I know that once you young it looks like ages to wait but it is nothing like that(I am bearly 31). I believe you can get there much quicker, but still experience is essential. Plus remember that maybe one day you will get tired of nomadic life and than good college and good cv will be very useful. Good luck! almost 5 years ago
