About the Author
Rich Hell’yea Johnson followed the traditional route of going to college with intentions of working in the CIA. During his time in college, all he did was work and study. He quickly realized he hated working for other people. He dropped out of college in his senior year and will never return.
After driving back from a wealth seminar on highway 101, looking at the Pacific ocean with the top down, he decided it was time to pursue his passion of traveling. He sold his car, surfboards, computers, furniture, canceled his phone, and completely changed the course of his life.
He is now officially homeless, has no transportation, no phone and has never been happier in his life.
“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” ~ Lao Tzu

One of my favorite things in life is stimulating conversation that
inspires the adventurous side of me. When I talk with fellow travelers, that’s what happens… at first.
You talk about where you have been, what you did, you share some stories. The “runny bum” problem you had in South America, the Spider Monkeys you saw in the rainforest of Central America, or the panoramic view of the Rockies when the morning light hits it just right.
Then the question comes up “What do you do?” “I’m a lingerie model. I’m actually wearing some right now.”
A few laughs and then the probing questions start. Before, I would tell people I make money on the internet, which led to a million more questions. Then I wised up and started telling people, “I’m a poker player”. I still got questions just not as many.
7 | Page
Then I just started saying I was a construction worker, no questions!!
Why didn’t I like the questions? The questions were always the same. How do you do this, how do you do that… how would I get started? Could you teach me?
I didn’t want to answer these questions because I’m NOT a guru, I’m not a millionaire, I’m just a regular guy that doesn’t like working for other people.
Then I kept seeing faces that reflected a hidden sadness, frustration and plain old boredom. I see it in every Country, every city and I even saw it at Disney World, the happiest place on earth! I feel sorry for them, because I know what it’s like to be depressed, frustrated and annoyed with the world. I know what it’s like to go back to a job that you are not happy about, following the same mundane routine day in and day out.
Been there, done that.

I know what it is like to go to school with no idea on what you really want to do with the rest of your life. I intimately know the feeling of not having my freedom.
So I decided I would share how to make money with my fellow travelers.
FREEDOM costs money. Ask yourself this question, how much does your freedom cost?

The Little Boy and a Copper Penny (Unknown Author) There was a small boy who when walking down the street one day found a bright copper penny. He was so excited that he found money and it didn't cost him anything. This experience led him to spend the rest of his days walking with his head down, eyes wide open, looking for treasure.
During his lifetime he found 296 pennies, 48 nickels, 19 dimes, 16 quarters, 2 half dollars and one crinkled dollar bill for a total of $13.96.
He got money for nothing. Except that he missed the breathless beauty of 31,369 sunsets, the colorful splendor of 157 rainbows, the fiery beauty of hundreds of maples nipped by autumn's frost. He never saw white clouds drifting across blue skies, shifting into various wondrous formations. Birds flying, sun shining, and the smiles of a thousand passing people are not a part of his memory.
Who do you know that is living like this? Head is bent down burdened with trivial things afraid of pain and criticism and fear of things that never happen hoping to find that copper penny...for nothing.

Obstacles That Stand in the Way There are only two obstacles that stand in your way of making money while traveling. How many? #1 – Your mindset #2 – Education.
The BIGGEST obstacle is your mind. What’s the word? (We learn best by having both hemispheres of the brain being involved in the process, so I will be asking questions and putting in random jokes and quotes, just have fun and play along )
It doesn’t matter what opportunity sits in front of you, if you don’t have the right mindset, you won’t take action and you won’t get the results. PERIOD.
We have been conditioned since birth with other people’s ideas and opinions. We all have a blueprint in our minds about money. Some people hold the idea that money is not important, money is the root of all evil, you can’t be spiritual and have money, you have to work hard, just to name a few.
11 | P a g e
This blueprint will only change with awareness, education and action. Unfortunately most people do not pay attention to this and they stay stuck. If you want to know what your blueprint is, look back on your financial results. The only thing that matters in the real world is your ________? Results.
How much money have you made each year? How was that money earned? Is it a steady amount each year, did it fluctuate at all? Your results will show you EXACTLY what you truly believe about money. You can learn different ways to make a million dollars but if your blueprint is set for poverty than your result will be poverty! The blueprint is the most crucial element!! Don’t believe me?
Read this again in 5 years, 10 years after reviewing your financial results. The pattern will be screaming at you, IF you don’t change your blueprint. Unfortunately this important topic is beyond the scope of this book. When you realize how important your mindset really is, you will be really frustrated about life. Don’t wait until you hit rock bottom, start focusing on that concept today. Check out the mind section of Vevelshemor.com for more free information.

Lesson #1 – If you know how to market, or you hire someone who knows how to market, you can make money doing anything.
Are you serious? - A man Gary Dahl became a millionaire selling a rock. A pet rock. He took a group of rocks and called it a rock band. If someone told you that they were going to become a millionaire by selling rocks, would you believe them? I sure as heck wouldn’t have, until now.
It’s time to take inventory. Questions to ponder.
1. What am I passionate about? 2. What do I like to do for fun? Write down everything 3. What skills do I possess? 4. What have I done in the past? 5. What would I love to do and get paid for it?
13 | P a g e
6. When have I thought to myself, I can make something better than this? Have you ever bought a product and thought to yourself, this is a piece of crap? Or ate at a restaurant and you thought to yourself, I could make a better dish than this?
Money is earned simply by providing value.
Value can be anything from making someone laugh, to teaching, to designing, to being a waitress, to washing someone’s socks.
7. What value can I provide?
8. How can I provide $10 worth of value to 3,000 people for a price of $1 a month? $1 * 3,000 = $3,000, (Not everybody is at good at math!)
Being broke means that you are keeping the true value of YOU all to yourself, instead of providing that value to the world.

Comfort Zone Story
I use to have a Comfort Zone Where I knew I couldn't fail The same four walls of busy work Were really more like jail. I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before, But I stayed inside my Comfort Zone And paced the same old floor I said it didn't matter, That I wasn't doing much I said I didn't care for things Like diamonds, furs and such I claimed to be so busy With the things inside my zone, But deep inside I longed for Something special of my own. I couldn't let my life go by, Just watching others win. I held my breath and stepped outside And let the change begin. I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before, I kissed my Comfort Zone "goodbye" And closed and locked the door. If you are in a Comfort Zone, Afraid to venture out, Remember that all winners were At one time filled with doubt. A step or two and words of praise, Can make your dreams come true. Greet your future with a smile, Success is there for you!

Los Básicos (The Basics)
In the past travelers have been focused on obtaining positions teaching English abroad, volunteering, travel writing, cruise ship jobs, working in hostels or by selling their specialized services in order to pay their way. All these are excellent ideas if you enjoy doing these activities. Our focus will be geared towards the internet.
The gold rush phenomenon that was experienced in the 1800’s pales in comparison to the gold rush explosion that is occurring RIGHT NOW. The internet is a prospector’s dream. The playing field has opened up for all those who have access to the internet (somewhere around 25% of the world). One day as Nicholas Negropont’s vision of one laptop per child becomes a reality, the entire world will have the same powerful economic opportunities in their hands.
“The Gods cannot help those who do not seize opportunities” ~ Chinese Proverb

Just in case you have been in the lost cave temples of the Himalayas, I will share the basics of the internet.
Virtual Real Estate – There are two elements that make up real estate on the internet. The domain name and the website. Think of the domain name as the land and the website as the house. You can choose to have your own real estate (your own house) or you can use someone else’s (think of it as an apartment).
Do you have a facebook? Your facebook is like an apartment. The problem with apartments is that you do not OWN the apartment, therefore you typically do not earn all the potential profit that exists. However, these apartments are excellent marketing weapons, if done correctly.
Just like in the real world, at a fraction of the cost, you can buy a domain name (land) and hold on to it in hopes of the name of the domain increasing in value. Buy, hold, pray.
$$$ - Domain Flipping – You can buy a domain name (land) and build a website (house) and sell that. This is known as domain flipping. This can be very lucrative. The way to
17 | P a g e
increase the value of that website (house) is to attract visitors to it by providing valuable content. Valuable = entertaining, informational, empowering or all three.
If you build it, they will come. Only in the movies, online it takes marketing!
Money is made online by views, clicks, leads and sales.
Paid for views – Imagine you have a blog, your own online TV show, or a website that receives several visitors every month. Businesses want to advertise their products or services to their particular type of customers. These businesses will pay you to put a banner, link or a widget on your site, if your visitors match their particular market. 1. Generate traffic to your site. 2. Find which businesses market to your type of visitors. 3. “Would you like to advertise on this site?” Put this on your site. 4. Find businesses that target your market and shoot them an e-mail telling them about your site and your visitors.

Trail Guide Joke Swiss mountain guides who always do the same trails can get tired answering the same questions over and over. One time an English tourist was giving his guide an especially hard time with silly questions. They were walking through a mountain valley that was strewn with rocks, and the traveler asked, "How did these rocks get here?" "Sir," said the guide, "they were brought down by a glacier." The tourist peered up the mountain and said, "But I don't see any glacier." "Oh, really?" said the guide. "I guess it has gone back for more rocks."
Paid for a click – I’m sure everybody reading this understands you can make money just by having someone click on an ad. Google adsense is the 900 lb. gorilla of this type of advertising. There is currently over 80 companies that will pay you for clicks.
19 | P a g e
That means you can create your own blog or website. Create your own free website, Free Blog, and insert adsense or one of the other 80 companies on your site. Generate a lot of traffic to your site and watch as the pennies start mounting up!
Flix – Get paid to share everything! This site is cool because you get paid 100% of the money generated through ads for your photos, videos and blog posts.

Paid for a lead – Have you ever filled out a survey, did a trial membership or entered a sweepstakes online? If so, chances are someone was paid a little money for providing that company with a lead (you!). A lot of CPA offers pay you for this. CPA – Cost Per Action. Here is one of the kings, explore around. $$$ - Resource Paid for a sale – You can sell your own product or service. If you do not have your own than you can refer people to other products and services and earn a commission on the sale. This is known as being an affiliate. EVERYBODY should be an affiliate for some company.
20 | P a g e
$$$ - Affiliate Marketing - Almost every single company you can think of has an affiliate program. Personally I only refer people to products and services that I use, love and know will help. Take care of people and people will take care of you, that’s just my philosophy. Resource 1 Resource 2
$$$ - Joint Ventures – One of the fastest ways to earn money. Two ways of doing this. One you can partner up with someone to do a project, or you can find two people, introduce them to each other and get a small fee for connecting them.
Problems can become opportunities when the right people come together. ~ Robert South
Think of what market you want to be in. Then start connecting with people who are the leaders of that market. Find them on facebook, linked in, twitter and develop a relationship with them. Simple relationship tip, help people and people will help you. You create your opportunities by asking for them. ~ Shakti Gawain

Quick money idea from Mark Joyner 1. 2. 3. Find an expert in the field that you are interested in and ask them for an interview. Ask them some good questions while recording the interview. Take that recording and put it on a CD and ask the expert if he would tell his connections about the CD for 90% of the profit.
I CAN DO THIS
Some of you are not going to appreciate just how simple that really is. That idea is easy. Money in your account that night.
I’m crazy for sharing this.
$$$ - CD of the month program - How about doing an interview with an expert every month and creating a CD of the month program. Charge $10, $20, $100 depending on the expert and the content. You find 100 customers at $10 a pop that is an extra $1,000 a month.

A lot of people focus on one particular niche such as travel related articles, which is a great method.

Blogging – An excellent way to make money, or is it? In order to actually make money writing a blog, you need to think like a business person and it starts by asking yourself a few questions. 1. Who is my audience? 2. What do they want? Business people solve problems. 3. What products and services can I offer to solve their problems? Monetize your blog 1. Direct Sales – your personal products and services. 2. Affiliate products that your audience wants. 3. Advertising?? I suggest you don’t. The money earned is minimal and you have no control over what is offered to your audience. You want your audience to love you! Look at the Fake Steve Jobs, he made a little over $100 in adsense for 500,000 visitors in one day. Think like a business person! Next, do not use a free platform to blog on. Invest in hosting and a domain name and set it up on wordpress.org. DO NOT BUY A DOMAIN NAME OR HOSTING THROUGH GoDaddy.com. That advice comes from going through a personal hell, along with horror stories from big names. Use anyone except GoDaddy.com, I recommend this place for Domain Name and this place for Hosting.

Sell your Pictures - Time to look around at what you have. Do you have pictures, videos, illustrations? You can sell your images on several sites. The more pictures that you have the more money you can possibly earn. I recommend these two sites Best Site, and Site. Here is an excellent forum for photographers Resource. Consumer Profile - Get paid for your attention? Create a personal consumer profile. Advertisers choose which people to market to, based on their profile. You check out their ads and essentially get paid. Again, not a lot of money but it’s something. You Review - Get paid to do reviews of all kinds of different products Opinions. Obviously they are looking for good reviews, the better you write it, the more money they pay you. This site pays you for doing reviews on software Software Review. Music Review - Slice the pie is an interesting idea. It’s a website that is devoted to financing new musical talent. You can get paid to review music and also by investing in a music group. When that music group makes money you earn a share of the profit.
29 | P a g e
Talking - Do you like to gab? We all have something valuable to say. You can have your own free 800 number that is forwarded to your personal phone. You can charge people per minute or per hour for your advice. Are you a blogger, a traveler, a good listener or an expert in your field? Talk
Drinking Beer – What? How about getting paid to drink beer and share your opinion. You definitely will not get rich doing this, but making an extra $50 - $100 for an hour of beer tasting is pretty frickin’ cool! Pass me a round!
Online Poker – DISCLAIMER: This suggestion is purely for entertainment purposes.
The author assumes no responsibility for someone losing their t-shirt because they do not know to play.
A game of awareness, mathematics, psychology and good ole’ fashion luck. If you are completely new to the game or are a losing player (donk) than consider sharpening your poker skills first on low-limit tables. There are several poker training sites out now-a-days. I recommend PXF for training. When I first started I was a break-even player / donk. After I studied the heck out of the videos on a training site, I started making some good money even with donkish plays! I recommend playing at the big sites, MyFav and pokerstars.

Store Front – You can sell physical products in a Yahoo store, on Amazon and eBay. I recommend Amazon because the customers are more affluent. Everybody knows about these sites but I mention this because I’m surprised very few travelers have started an import business. Look at the Acai berry. Ten years ago, it was unknown in the west. It grows like a weed and hardly gets any attention in South America but now it’s one the “golden” health foods in the USA. Ahh, the power of marketing!
Drop Shipping You can sell physical products online without the hassle of inventory. No one wants 200 TV’s in their garage! Drop Shipping makes your life easier. When you get a sale you can have the customer order and shipment details sent to either the manufacturer or a wholesaler. They then ship the goods to your customer. Here is a great resource to find drop shippers Resource.
Lesson #1 – If you know how to market, or you hire someone who knows how to market, you can make money doing anything.

Toilet paper, McDonald’s, pet rocks, Rocky and a cheese sandwich resembling the Virgin Mary all started out as ideas. The cheese sandwich resembling the Virgin Mary sold for $28,500 on eBay to a casino in Vegas. A kid trying to figure out how to make a million dollars decided to sell one pixel for $1. He sold 1,000,000 pixels for one dollar.
Embrace an idea and frickin’ run with it. Sylvester Stallone had $106 in his bank account. He sold his dog for $50 because he could not afford to feed him. He went to a boxing match and watched a man named Wepner go toe to toe with Muhammad Ali for 15 rounds, when it was predicted the fight wouldn’t last longer than 3 rounds. After the match Stallone went home and spent the next 3 days completing the script for Rocky.
