    Can someone please tell me how people like @successpilots and @singular_adventures "quit there jobs and travel full time"
    @successpilots has a link where you sign up for a free 7 day trial then pay $37 a month to get coached how to "become your own boss" and then she gets $20 commission from every sign up after the first payment. But she has less than 5k followers.

    @singular_adventures has just over 4k followers and only has a free ebook on offer. Which basically just says offer your followers something from an affilate program.

    Ive messaged both of them but had no reply.

    Anyone know?

    They're probably just marketers like us, sat in a dark humid room giggling with delight as fool after fool signs up to their crappy ebook. hoping that one day they can have the life that they "live" on their accounts.

    Maybe they do some freelance work when they are travelling. It's also possible that they have websites or won the lottery. Of course they won't tell you.

    I must be really tired to not automatically smell bullshit. I even read his shitty e-book and wasted 10 minutes of my night. Ive just started a travel account on IG and its full of them

    For starters, she's pimping typical Guru crap.

    Her profile is laden with little bits of her "Good life" that want you, the reader to check out and fall in love with that lifestyle.

    There are authentic backpackers around the world, who live the life of nomads. I have several friends who do it too, running and managing several projects on the side or freelancing and using the money to expense their travels.

    I once hired a writer who was backpacking across Russia to write for one of my travel sites. She took pictures and wrote content every weekend and travelled throughout the week. The money I paid was used to fund those trips. So good was her work that I ended up buying an entry-level DSLR for her trip above and over the money I was already paying her.

    So you essentially find a source of income, then use it to travel. I have known these people who take up local jobs to stay afloat. The writer I mentioned above took odd jobs at local farming markets and got paid the minimum wage to be able to sustain.

    It's a different kind of lifestyle. Not meant for everyone, for sure. Most people love travelling, seeing new place etc. But not everyone is carved out to be a Nomad.

    I'll post a link with a list of some blogs of people who actually are doing this - all of them have a root though, a place they call home.

    http://www.nomadicmatt.com/ & http://www.legalnomads.com/ are my favorite.

    Thanks mate ill have a read. I just cant believe how many of these gurus there are with travel pages. 50% of the people liking my photos and following me are these "gurus".
    Better change my hashtags!

    That is what automation does to you. If you're building a legit page, you have no nothing to worry about. Just be relentless and keep posting brilliant content. You'll be noticed.

    Some are legit. I know a guy who quit his job at a big bank. He had depression from doing bank work but made lots of $. He quit and started traveling and writing. He already was rich when he quit, he did not become rich traveling.

    Traveling was his therapy, not his money making journey. And when I read the shit he wrote I kept thinking "therapy" it didn't make me want to do the same. Except some places he went to were really striking and I'd like to go there, except for the photos everything else was just his own way of coping with having been a banker.
