Tatiana Kukanova was a girl who I met in college who very quickly became one of my closest friends and she and I would spend hours together plotting out our future. Tatiana would always tell me about how she wanted to work from her laptop, with no boss and no set working hours, something which I just couldn’t get my head around. As it happened, upon finishing college this is exactly what Tatiana went on to do and she is currently a digital nomad, roaming around the world whilst making a very good living from her computer. This is something which I probably wouldn’t enjoy but I know that there are a lot of people who would love this lifestyle, so here is how Tatiana makes her money, perhaps it may inspire you to do the same.
As far as I am aware Tatiana is no longer doing this but it was something which helped her make money online for many years. Basically there are websites online which pay you to fill out surveys, the information which you give on these surveys is then used by private companies and governments, in order to better understand the demographics of their target market, and what consumers want. You won’t get paid a fortune for these, perhaps just a couple of dollars each time, but over the course of a few months, assuming that you are committed, you can make a nice chunk of change.
Writing is what makes up the majority of Tatiana’s income and she has a number of clients who require content written for them. Initially she would find gigs on a site like Upwork which connects employers with freelancers, but nw she has regular clients for who she writes. Tatiana makes over $3000 per month from writing alone and that involves working about 4 hours per day. The key here, if you want to do the same, is to try and find as many clients as possible until you get one who requires a steady stream of work, which can help to ensure that you don’t have any barren months.
When Tatiana has had a good month with her other endeavors, she likes to invest a small amount of money and play some online poker. Tatiana has always been a math whizz and I’m sure that this is why she has taken to the game of poker so well. She plays poker primarily for entertainment rather than making money but in the last year she made over $10,000 from poker playing alone.
Tatiana’s other main source of income, aside from writing, is as a virtual assistant. This is basically like an online secretary and she works for a webmaster who has a number of admin tasks which she wants completed each week. These tasks involve sending and replying to emails, social media management and a lot of organizational stuff, something which she is perfect for. Working virtually also allows you to be able to travel while making money as well!
As you can see, Tatiana has a number of different revenue streams which helps her to ensure that she is always earning money.
