Thursday Bram has taken her work with her to Ireland, Israel and Iowa: in order to travel, she built her writing business to be as mobile as she is. In Working Your Way Across the World, Thursday shares the tips and tricks she’s learned over the course of years in business for herself — as well as information from scores of other women who found themselves with the urge to travel and a need to support themselves in the process.
In between tipping back a few pints in Dublin and watching the aspens turn in Colorado, Thursday has written for Cnet, Lifehack, FreelanceSwitch and many other websites. She’s currently based in Laurel, Maryland.
Frequently Asked Questions
Isn’t it expensive to travel for months at a time?
When you think of long-term travel, you probably see some pretty big dollar signs. But the truth of the matter is that you can actually travel for less than you would need to live at home: depending on what countries you want to visit, you may find much lower costs of living. That means you can live on income earned with just a few hours of work, rather than your usual forty hours per week.
Is it really practical to travel long-term with your family?
Seeing the world can be an incredible experience for your whole family — moreso if you can actually spend sometime in a culture. There’s certainly an adjustment period, but don’t let the fact that you have a family keep you from traveling
What kind of work do you recommend for supporting long-term travel?
My first instinct is to recommend building your own business, because that was my own approach. I like having both the flexibility and responsibility of my own business. But there are plenty of benefits to both taking a job wherever you want to visit or taking a telecommuting position — like significantly more job security. It really depends on where you want to go and what work you’re comfortable with.
Working Your Way Around the World was written with female readers in mind — and covers topics like family in more depth than other books covering long-term travel. It covers the three key approaches a person can take to supporting herself while moving around the world: taking a job in her destination job, telecommuting and creating a mobile business.
In addition to providing information on the tools necessary to make each approach work, the book gives a basic introduction to finding a job or projects for each approach.
