This isn’t one of those pesky ads that sell some B.S. book revealing absolutely nothing, this is 100% LEGIT! Aileen Adalid, an ethnic Filipino shares her story in an interview with Business Insider on how she went from working in giant corporations to running a business which generates RM28,950 a month from literally anywhere in the world!

That’s living the life right there! Career goals anyone?

The young entrepreneur started off in an entry-level profession at Deutsche Bank, her pay after conversion is around RM1,200 a month. She saved up some cash equivalent to RM2,500 and took up online freelancing jobs which allowed her to travel as she worked, a digital nomad, if you will.

“My pay at this point was more than double of what I earned at my office job and I was able to control my time more for working as I started to travel around more”

– Aileen

A year later in 2014, she started an e-commerce business with a friend called Adalid Gear. They sell premium outdoor stuff that both you and me could most likely not afford. Their products are sold via Amazon and have fantastic customer service according some of the testimonials!

Soon, the company was a huge success and has profits reaching RM280,000 a month! 

The young entrepreneur earns a sustainable RM20,000 a month and also runs one of the world’s largest travel blogs, I Am AileenWith that money? I think that’s more than sustainable!

With such a repertoire, companies are constantly jostling for a spot on her blog, often giving her some perks and free upgrades! She turns them down though (whaiiii) as she puts it, she wants her blog to “remain authentic, personalized, and uncluttered”.

She now works 4 hours a day from anywhere with an internet connection, and as for anyone wanting to do what she does, well here’s a little bit of advice she got for ya!

Being constantly on the move can ruin anyone’s focus, rhythm, and pace, but I’ve discovered that it can be easily solved by doing slow travel and finding the right balance to how you do your workflow.”

“It’s fine to take it easy at the start as you get skills and do temporary work and projects, like volunteering, but at the very core, it’s still best to work your way towards a grand goal that will give you a more stable remote profession.”
