How to Pay for Your Next Trip
People write to me all the time asking if it really is possible to get paid to travel. My response? YES, IT IS!
In fact, armed with a few simple secrets, you could be doing it in a handful of weeks. That’s all it took for Bonnie Keough, a fellow reader, to launch her new life.
This time last year, she made a commitment to turn 2006 into the year she followed her dream. Today, she’s getting paid to travel.
And I have to tell you: She’s not doing anything you can’t learn to do, too.
Here’s her story…
“I love to travel, but since I’m not independently wealthy, I also need to make money. That’s why I attended your Lucrative Traveler’s workshop last year in San Antonio. You promised a great lineup of experienced travel writers and photographers, but what really put me over the edge (or on the airplane) was the addition of Gary and Merri Scott. Second to traveling, I love to shop, especially for unique, handmade items. So, how could I resist the temptation to learn how to cash in on my two passions!
Each speaker educated us with their experiences, they actually do earn money following their passions, they don’t just talk about it. I gained years worth of hard-earned education in just two days, but the most important things I took home with me were inspiration and confidence. I could do this too; and I did!
In March 2006, I made one of my dreams come true. I went to Ecuador. I attended the Scott’s import/export seminar, we visited artists, markets and villages. It was a treat to see the great variety of handmade items and meet the friendly artists. I started to see the possibilities. I filled my suitcases in no time. Most of those things were sold to coworkers and friends and covered the costs of my trip. Yeah!
I returned to Ecuador in October, 2006. I spent two weeks attending Spanish classes in Quito and the next two weeks shopping. Once home, I sold my goods at an international bazaar and again paid for my trip expenses.
Do I plan to continue? You bet! I have ideas for other places to sell my goods and some great material for travel articles. I am learning more each trip and gaining experience and confidence and most importantly, I love doing it!
Attending your workshop was the catalyst that gave me the courage to take the plunge. Thank you for enriching my life.”
Last year at this time, Bonnie was in your shoes. Getting paid to travel sounded nice… it was a dream…
But then she did something you can do right now — she reserved a place at our Lucrative Traveler’s Conference. And today, she’s living that dream.
She took action. And you can, too.
We hold travel writing and photography workshops all over the world. Check out our upcoming workshops and reserve your spot today.
