Meet this young couple from New Zealand, who chose a slightly different mode for earning a livelihood. Well, their mode is not just different but also admirable. The couple took a lot of people with shock when they left their previous career in order to pursue their new career, which is Travelling. Who doesn’t want this life? It seems a nomadic one but every single day is exciting worth living. They don’t just travel for fun but they do earn a 6 figure income by their traveling. And now they are sharing their secret of such a life and how they are taking it.
Nathan Buchan, 26, left his previous career and chose to be a travel blogger for earning a livelihood out of it. Later, his girlfriend Hannah Martin, 25, joined him, too. And the couple earns in 6 figures from their new job.
Nathan worked as a plumber, he knew that this wasn’t his ideal job. He wanted to do something different. Something that would make him happier. It was three years ago when he decided to take up traveling as his full time job. He thought things over and started blogging.
“It was the middle of winter and it was so wet and started hailing. I was getting hit in the face with hail stones that were bouncing off the ground and I was lying in the mud. I never thought ‘screw this I want to be a travel blogger’ but I wanted to create a life on my own terms, where I could be my own boss. I knew if I could make a living online somehow I could travel more so I focused on that.”
Nathan spent some money on creating a blog and saved some for his trip to Vietnam. “I thought if I could live somewhere cheap while getting it rolling I would be able to make it work. So I lived in a cockroach infested hostel in Panama for a month, did a lot of activities around there and it paid off.”
“Numerous times I questioned what the f**k I was doing and I think most of my friends and family were wondering the same thing. My boss was angry when I quit but I just had to try something different.”
His girlfriend Hanna still had a year to complete her degree in accounting. After finishing the degree she soon joined Nathan. She says “As soon as I grabbed my pretty little piece of graduation paper I packed everything I could into a backpack and left.”
“Since then we’ve worked and traveled around countries like Ecuador, Bali, Colombia, Thailand, Canada, the states…the list goes on.” She puts on the website.
Nathan explained how they make money “I make commission per sale I make for the company I promote these posts on Facebook and over time, I can make thousands per post.”
The couple earns on based on commission they make via recommending a link to a company.
