Remote careers are relatively new ventures that emerged with the internet era. In the past, people needed to drive or commute to do their jobs at designated places. But with the restrictions caused by the pandemic, along with our global connectivity, people came to realize they can also make money wherever they go. And this “location freedom” is one of the best benefits of working remotely.

Now there are a number of online jobs you can do from the comfort of your home or from anywhere in the world. And if you’re looking for one right now, we even have 5 remote career recommendations for you!

These remote jobs may or may not include work aligned with your interests. But if there's one thing sure about them, they'll help you make money from everywhere you are. Now read until the end because we're giving you amazing tips on how to start a particular venture and enjoy not only location freedom but passive income with it. Now let's get started.

1. Content creation

The global online community is always hungry for content. And I know you can relate to this because you’re probably drawn to some particular interests yourself. Well, you can use these interests and create content on these specific niches too.

If you’re a talented writer and you love traveling, you can create blogs that cater to people who like reading about the places you happen to visit. If you like making and editing videos, you can create informative content for people as well. All of these have the potential to make you money and you'll find them fun to do too.

2. Translation services

Are you fluent in one or more languages other than your mother tongue? Then you can offer translation services online! More and more companies are going global (even small businesses) and they'll need your help to reach a wider audience.

3. Virtual assistance

Entrepreneurs and start-ups often need aid with day-to-day tasks within the company. And some of these jobs need to be outsourced in order to save on manpower costs. So if you are skilled in managing work and have the knack for helping people find solutions to business problems, you can offer online virtual assistance to entrepreneurs and companies even if they're from other countries.

4. Online teaching

Let's say you have a master's degree in Engineering. You like teaching people but don't want to be tied to an institution. So what do you do? Well, how about becoming an online coach or teacher? This career will not only give you the freedom to go wherever you want while making money, but it will also make use of your expertise in the field.

5. Starting an online business

Now technically, some of the careers listed above can be considered self-employment. That is unless you own an agency that offers the said services. In that case, you become an entrepreneur and you now own an online business.

But online businesses are not limited to services. They also include selling stuff on platforms like Amazon, and sometimes they even include dropshipping products that you don't store in a warehouse.

These are just 5 of the top remote work you can do anywhere you are in the world. And these online ventures can not only help you earn money, but they can also let you enjoy location freedom as well.

Passive income vs. Location Freedom

However, we need to address the difference between being able to work anywhere and being able to generate passive income. Because while some people think they're synonymous, they actually don't mean the same thing.

For example, having an online business may mean that you can do your tasks anywhere while you're accepting orders. But it's still not passive if you have to pack those orders and answer customers yourself. A passive income source will let you earn even without you using your time for it.

Now that you know the difference, you're probably wondering what online ventures can give you location freedom while earning passive income. And for this, we recommend starting an online business with Airbnb.

Making money with Airbnb

Airbnb hosting has become one of the most popular side hustles for those who have spare spaces or properties. And it's a pretty neat business because it uses an online platform for listing and communication. So just like any online business, you can also manage it anywhere as long as you're connected to the internet.

By the way, did you know that according to the 2021 statistics, the average monthly earnings of an Airbnb host in the US is around $13,800? However, this is not passive income. Hosts still need to manage their properties in order for them to continue making profits. So if you want to experience both location freedom and passive earning with your Airbnb, you need to automate it.

How to automate your Airbnb

Here are some tips to help your Airbnb run on autopilot:

1. Do not clean it on your own

Don't try to save money by cleaning your own property. If your goal is to be truly independent with your business, you need to add a cleaning crew to do the work for you.

2. Don't meet every guest in person

Most people just want to experience your Airbnb and it's unnecessary to meet them in person sometimes. This is why you need to set up a keyless entry for the entrance and exit of each and every guest.

3. Do not micromanage your guests

Allow the guests to have their own experience. Sure they'll want to be checked on from time to time but you also don't want to overdo it to the point that they feel like you're managing their every move.

4. Automate your nightly rate

You can use sites like Beyond Pricing to look at airlines, hotels, and events in your area. This will automate your pricing to create a competitive rate for your Airbnb.

These are just some of the most important tips you can use to help your Airbnb run smoother without dealing with the stress of management. And with a fully automated Airbnb business, you can now start earning passive income, wherever you are in the world.
