How I Made $211,969 While Traveling The World

No doubt, one of the biggest benefits of living the Dot Com Lifestyle is the ability to make money while you’re laying about on the beaches of the world. Last year, I traveled for over 100 days and my Internet income kept going up while I was having fun chilling’ in the world’s tallest hotel.

Another person living the Dot Com Lifestyle is my buddy Yaro Starak of Membership Site Mastermind. In 2008, Yaro spent 8 months traveling the world and he made over $200,000 while doing it. If this is something you would like to do, then watch this little video Yaro put together.

The start of the video is really inspiring, as Yaro takes you through a slide-show from his 8-month trip around the world. During his trip he conducted two different membership site launches in two different countries. One of these launches alone generated $211,969 and the other resulted in a $20,000 a month income stream. Yaro did this all while living in a different exotic city each week, traveling and running his business online. It’s really the ultimate way to live.

    Yes that is a great part about making money online, being able to make money even when you’re not actively doing the work online.

    I hope to someday be able to make this much.

    But in the mean time, I made $6 over the weekend without doing anything 🙂

    LOL. I’ll take it!

    Great post 😉 Very inspirational!

      lol..Most definitely..Trini..Heck, you’re doing better than most bloggers 🙂

      I actually don’t mind the idea of not necessarily working less, but the efficiency being greater as well as the payout..

    Hi John,

    The video is really inspirational, and it shows that you can make money on the Internet even when you are traveling.

    The key is having a membership site in place. It is obvious that you have to set it up in the right way to have a passive stream of income.

    I can say this because I have my membership site and it works as a charm.

    Thanks,
    ^PV Reymond

      I am not running membership site, but i will look the program, maybe for next website. thank for your info.

    This is exactly why I want to make a living online. Working a few hours a day and traveling the world.

      Hi Benjamin,
      Here is a quick tip for you. Open CIA’s World Factbook and find the countries with lowest GDP. Pick the one that you like the most and move there. You can easily get by with just few hundreds of dollars per month and you’ll be living like a dot com mogul.

    There are so many opportunities to make money online, both you and Yaro are living proof. It doesn’t matter if you have a laptop on your couch, or are traveling to exotic cities on a world tour- if you have a solid plan and are willing to put the work in, there’s money to be made!

  35. Tell me why says:

    This Video has nothing to do with JOHNCHOW traveling. How I made 211,300 is bullshit packed in canned email list and peddled around the Internet. At least be honest in your headlines and come clean.

    1. John Chow says:

      Last year, I travel for 100 days and during the time, I made way more than $211K. While that $211,300 amount applies to Yaro, it also applies to me.

  36. Making money while sitting or sleeping on your bed is always everybody’s dream 🙂 But hard work is usually required initially

  37. John says:

    Very inspiring.What a wonderful feeling it must be to know that the work and effort will reward itself.

    Excellent slide show of the travels Yaro did. Yeah, I could become addicted to that kind of lifestyle. There is a great big world out there and I would like to see more of it. Fantastic information by Yaro about how to build up your email list. Blogging, surveys, and online videos are all excellent ways of building up your business.
