Dreaming of leaving that desk job in favor of traveling the world? Starting a side hustle that you want to take full-time but can’t quit your day job just yet? Teaching English online has been popular amongst digital nomads for a couple of years now, and it is a great way to start making money while you travel and start your own business.
Here on the podcast today we have Rachel and Sasha from Grateful Gypsies, two festival-loving souls who travel the world and teach English online and are also helping others get started doing the same. They are talking all about their travels, how they got started teaching, what a day in their life looks like, the best places to live for digital nomads, and more!
Traveling full-time? You’ll definitely want to look into travel insurance. Our favorite is World Nomads. Get a quote here!
