Travel the world as a developer
Being a software developer is unique, many of the employers understand the benefits of allowing you to work remotely. This is probability the best profession to find a remote only job. You have to find out what you really want out of travelling, and what you are sacrifice for it. I prefer part-time contacts because I travel randomly: beaches, food, and friends, visiting only major cities where I can ensure a reasonable internet connectivity.
Most of my work comes by referral: from friends, or friends of friends, or former classmates, colleagues etc. Socialise with everyone; let your friends know you are looking for freelance work and you would love to get a heads up once they hear about any technical queries from anyone.
Join the entrepreneurial community
Once arrive hour travel destinations, try to network with fellow self-starters and entrepreneurs. Book a desk at a coworking space or attend boot camps, you can be sure to meet like-minded people and share your stories with them.
Get a social life
Meet new people whenever and wherever you can. Rely on social media if you travel for longer term. Get in touch with locals to show you around, you will have an enjoyable time.
Get new clients
I suggest you to focus on quality deliverables and after sales support which will definitely bring you new clients easier on referrals. I get majority of my works from referrals , old clients, friends and people I met during my travels. Sometimes I travel to the client site to make sure that they feel I am committed to what I am doing otherwise I managed to send my friends who stay nearby.
