How to Make Money Traveling Around the World

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Sunday 13th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

On Jan 3rd 2010 I left the country and spent time exploring Africa and Europe returning exactly 7 months later on Aug 3rd 2010.

During that time I was able to visit 25 countries and make on average 3k a month working about 1 - 2 hrs a day remotely.

I am 26 years old, live in the Austin area, and have spent the last 6 years in the internet marketing industry, mostly dabbling in affiliate marketing.

The purpose of the trip was to backpack around Europe and Africa on the lowest budget possible, mostly staying in hostels and traveling around via bus, train, and hitch hiking. I was supposed be gone only 3 months but ended up staying 7.

My presentation will have 2 sections. One catered to business the other catered to traveling.

Section 1: How to Make Money While Traveling (Tips to automate your business)
Section 2: How to Save Money On Traveling (Tips on finding the best travel deals)

If accepted to speak at SXSW my presentation will be catered to 20, 30, and 40 somethings who enjoy traveling on a budget and making a bit of money to extend their stays.

I will give this exact speech at the local SEO meetup (http://www.meetup.com/seo-austin/) on Oct 27th. I expect a turn out of about 100+ attendees. I believe this will be a good tuneup if accepted to present at SXSW. You can find my blog at www.goldenbooktraveler.com
