Mod - please move this thread if you feel it is in the wrong place. I have been on BHW for several years now and have learned so much from the community, so I decided it's time to give back. This isn't your typical "make money online" post. There are plenty of those here, so I thought I would offer something different. Sorry if this is sort of a ramble. I didn't really organize my thoughts before posting. I'm just typing as I think. One of the main reasons many of us decide to get into internet marketing is because we want to make a lot of money and not be tied to a specific location. We would like to travel the world, experience other cultures, and NOT spend the rest of our lives in a cubicle. Well, at least that's why I got into it. But, did you know that it's relatively easy to make money FROM your traveling? Sure, you could start a travel blog, but there are a million and one of those around. I'm talking about international media sales. First, let me explain how I stumbled into this field and a bit about my background: Four years ago I had just moved to San Francisco (I'm an American) and it was an awful recession. There were no jobs and I wasn't going to last a month with my savings in such an expensive place. I went to countless interviews for dead-end jobs. Then I saw an ad "Travel the world and meet with international business leaders and top government officials around the world." I thought it was a scam, but I applied and when they called I agreed to an interview. Two weeks later, just as I thought I didn't get the job, they called me and wanted me to fly to Belgium the n ext week to start my training. Since they were paying for my flight and everything and I had just broken up with my long time gf earlier that year I figured I had nothing to lose so I caught a flight to Europe. After two weeks training, they send me to the Philippines to join the team there. This company had about 20 teams around the world. A "team" is usually one guy and one girl, but there are often teams of 3, especially when there's someone new (like I was). Here's their basic business model: get an attractive girl (usually blonde with big boobs) and a decent looking guy who seems intelligent. Send them to developing countries to sell overpriced advertising. That's it. People in emerging markets like south east asia, latin america and india tend to look up to and respect people from Europe, the UK and the US (I mean no disrespect to people from these countries, this is just a fact I have witnessed first hand). This makes it relatively easy to sell these people, especially when they have tons of money.
