Matt Kepnes did what so many of us dream of doing: He quit his job to travel around the world. But then he took his dream even further. He found a way to make money while he was doing it. Kepnes, also known as Nomadic Matt, turned a vacation into a job that can bring in up to $9,000 a month.

How does he do it? In our quick interview, he gives tips for making money that can be applied to your own journey through life.




In addition to his main NomadicMatt.com web site, which hosts his blog, Kepnes also runs How to Teach English Overseas and How to Travel and Backpack the World. Does a guy who runs all those sites from the road really have time to enjoy being a tourist? Then again, without a set endpoint to his travels, does it matter how much time it takes to make enough money to keep going for a while?
