Take The Risk: Travel the World
Although I’m now living in South America, I knew since I was a little girl that I would travel the world someday. I clearly remember my oldest sister flying away to Thailand for the summer. I stayed up all night and rode with my mom to drop her off at the airport at 4am, just to feel like I was a little part of the action.
I considered many different careers as I went through high school and college, always ALWAYS asking myself, can I travel with this job? How can I work and live around the world?
Working with the State Department was a clear choice, but unfortunately, I’m absolutely horrible at learning other languages, a major requirement. I considered the Peace Corp, international development jobs, and even taught abroad for two years in the UAE. I never found what I was looking for.
Finally, in 2016, I took my dream and chased it down. No businesses wanted to let an entry-level employee work from home around the world, so I did the logical thing; I started my own while living in South America.
Now I own a digital marketing agency with clients ranging from political news outlets to jewelry stores to sports supplements, and more. Oh, and the best part? I had ZERO marketing experience. Yet, only seven months in, I no longer have to find clients, they all come to me.
Now, I spend my days sipping drinks in cafe’s, laying by the pool, lounging at home, and being paid for it! I enjoy the creative freedom that marketing gives me, and I find the numbers and analytics very satisfying (when my campaigns are going well of course).
I’m 25. I’m living in South America, and I own my own business, make my own hours, and travel the world, moving from country to country on a whim. My dreams are coming true every day… follow me and I’ll share them with you 🙂

ANYWAY this is usually the method I go for! I am still alive so it has definitely been working well so far! If you come across one of these bad boys on your travels through South America, keep this advice in mind because you surely don’t want to be remembered as the guy who was killed by a shower 🙂
Good luck and happy travels!
All my love,
