How I Turned my Passion for Travel into a Paycheck

Oneika Raymond

Craft + Commerce 2020

Oneika shares her story about making a full-time living as an international teacher, and keeping a travel blog to chronicle her adventures.

There were some killer aspects of her teaching job: Short work days, great pay, plenty of vacation time, and lots of free time to work on her travel blog,

But she began to realize that she was much more passionate about the travel part of her lifestyle than the actual teaching part.

In this talk, Oneika inspires us to not spend another minute doing what we don’t love, and to instead pursue what we do.
