TRP 011: How an Ex-Marine Turned Copywriter makes $40/Hour, Remotely

Did you know that copywriters make an average of $71K USD a year?

A remote copywriter makes less than that, about $50K USD a year. That’s really good money if you’re living overseas in Southeast Asia but forget it if you’re trying to live in a major city anywhere else in the world. Or is it?

In today’s episode I have Daniel Vu, an ex-marine turned copywriter who makes $40/hour remotely which is more than 76,000 a month, more than the US national average.

He lives in sunny San Diego, with a quick google search, the median household income to live in SD is $64,000 USD. It’s not like San Francisco where the median is in the $90,000+ USD, but it still doesn’t make it a cheap city.

You’ll Learn:

  • 3 ways to land a high paying remote job
  • How Daniel’s marine background gave him the discipline to find freedom
  • What it means to be a linchpin when working remotely
  • Daniel’s personal motto to finding meaning in life
