Browse YouTube for any length of time, and you're bound to come across dozens of video logs, or vlogs posted by van life nomads who've ditched the traditional nine-to-five way of making money.
Popular vloggers with loads of subscribers are able to make a decent living online. For example, Katie and Ben are digital nomads whose popular 'Two Wandering Soles' YouTube channel earns more than $14,000 per month, explains Your Green Grass Project.
2. Join the World of Workamping
Many road nomads support themselves with seasonal work at campgrounds, ski resorts, and national parks. Ideal for those who enjoy the outdoorsy lifestyle, workamping gigs typically come with a built-in expiration date that makes it easy to set up a string of seasonal jobs, says MSN.

Persons with writing skills, an internet connection, and the ability to successfully "pitch" articles can write about their adventures and sell stories to travel magazines. Not only will you see new places, you can make money on the internet.
4. Find Freelance Gigs Online
Make accounts at freelance job sites and check back often to find work in your field of expertise. Bearfoot Theory suggests creating accounts at Upwork, Guru, 99 Designs, and Fiverr.
