Traveling for a living?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by RadioactiveGuy4, Mar 28, 2014.


  1. So I might have a job opportunity coming up. Its a great job that pays well but it would require that I travel 70% of the time. I would like to hear from any of you guys that have similar jobs. How do you incorporate music in to your lives? It would seem that being in a band would be out of the question given the amount of travel. Hell any advise you could give would be great.
     
  2. A friend of mines fiance had a job which he was out of town 6 days a week nearly every week. he made great money, but had no time to enjoy any of it.

    An old friend of mine had a similar gig. He made a poopload of money but was miserable. I haven't spoken to him in a while but last I heard he was back at home with his parents and unemployed, and had become an alcoholic. I guess it depends on your personality, but he apparently couldn't handle it.

    If you're single and like to travel it can be a lot of fun for a while, then it starts to get old.
     
  6. My goal would not be to do this job forever but it would give me a chance to build up some savings. If I like it great, If not then I would move on. Or per haps work my self into a position that did not require me to travel as much.
