How to Freelance While Traveling the World

One of the advantages of freelancing is that you are not confined to your office. Instead of spending days in the office from 9 am to 5 pm, a freelancer works any time of the day and anywhere – in a café, in a park or at an airport in anticipation of a flight. You can record a webinar, conduct an advertising campaign, polish your website and all this can be done on the way to Paris or Bangkok.

With today’s challenging economy, freelance and travel can be the best way to simultaneously enjoy life and make a living. The main question: how to freelance effectively while traveling?

Here are the ultimate tips on how to combine freelancing and traveling:

1) The most important thing is to allocate hours that you will dedicate only to work while traveling. At this time, no one should disturb you. Neither relatives, nor pets, nor TV shows. For example, I work for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening. During the day, I do personal things. During my freelance hours, I do not check my personal mail or messages, and I answer only urgent calls from my business customers.

What’s a Travel Grant, and How Do I Get One?

The ability to travel opens your eyes to worlds apart from your own. While this type of experience is invaluable, it does cost money — sometimes, a lot of money.

That’s where a travel grant comes in. This type of allowance provides the funds you need to get yourself around the world and back again.

What Is a Travel Grant?

In general, federal or state governments — as well as educational institutions — can provide you with a grant. As far as travel goes, though, they’re most often awarded by the latter.

Students who propose to travel to a far-flung destination should come to the awarding officer with a detailed proposal as to why this trip is essential. In most cases, they’ll have to show the type of research they’ll be able to conduct while they’re out of the country. If the university or organization providing the grant sees the value in the trip — say, it’s for research instead of relaxation — they will likely give a plan the go-ahead.

There’s a slight difference between travel grants and scholarships. To obtain the latter, one typically has to show proof of academic excellence or another exceptional talent. The money awarded often goes toward tuition fees incurred while studying abroad, which might make it harder to obtain a scholarship for research pursuits or cultural immersion.
