🤷🏻‍♂️ plenty of people with “regular” jobs don’t save for retirement. It’s a function of personality, not job type.

All of the high-flying, impulsive, indulgent people that you envy now? Check in with them in 5, 10, 15 years

The successful ones aren’t the ones in question as it is evident that they are making money and can save for retirement. Responsible people aren’t typically impulsive, self-indulgent, or “now now now” either

Getting paid to promote branded items and a lot of what they do is free (hotels, restaurants, tours, etc).

My sister in law is a small time blogger (around 30k followers on instagram) and she pocketed around $125k last year plus tons of free shit. This is a side hustle.

I think bloggers and vloggers —at least the successful guys like that traveler Drew B.—make money with their blogs and advertising. Others that travel a lot, blog, and chill, like the guy above me said: check in with them in 10 years.

Depends how much they make. The really popular ones make a lot
