Here’s is a list of ways to earn money regardless or where you are (i.e. location independent):
- Teach! English as a second language, for example.
- Provide translation services. Before the machines take over this job!
- Software development. Everyone needs a good software engineer right now.
- Prepare meals. Everyone’s gotta eat, and some people will pay good money for specialized/niche meals
- Editing. Copy-writing. That kind of thing.
- Technical writing. Say if you were a scientist or engineer, you could probably still help someone out with technical writing.
