My good friend Sean Ogle of Location 180 has put together what I think is an awesome program that teaches you many of the methods that Sean uses to build a business you can run from anywhere on the planet. It’s called Location Rebel and Sean was gracious enough to grant me early access in return for becoming one of the case studies for the program.
I’ve spent the past 2 months going through the material, interacting with the first group of Location Rebels, learning a ton of new skills and starting my own online SEO business. And now I’m thrilled to announce that Location Rebel is open to new members.
Where do you start?
I have quite a few different business ideas that I’ve always wanted to pursue but the problem was I didn’t know how to start or how to implement those ideas. I also had a lot of fear and trepidation and lack of confidence in my own abilities to pull it all off.
I still struggle with all those things but being a part of Location Rebel and meeting people from all walks of life who struggle with the same things has really been an encouragement. And watching and learning from people trying to change their lives has been a great motivator. Being able to connect with people in the forum is probably one of the best aspects of Location Rebel. The forum is packed with topics and information and the experts that chime in to answer questions really make it a very dynamic environment.
So what exactly is Location Rebel?
So you might be wondering what Location Rebel is and how it can help you. Location Rebel is a program that will give you the tools you need to start building your own business. It’s not as much a step by step guide as it is a foundation building kit.
Some of the key aspects of the program are:
- 9 Modules of awesome content covering all of the things you need to know and learn in order to start your own lifestyle business
- 8 (with more added all the time) in depth interviews with successful location independent entrepreneurs that will teach you how to get started making $1000/month within three months of starting the course with elbow grease and hard work
- 8 simple, step-by-step business blueprints you can copy and paste to start generating income with skills like: SEO, copywriting, web development, design & advertising, project management and more… (Even if you have no prior experience in any of the areas.)
- Access to discussion forums to connect, share and learn from your peers who are going through the same transition as you and dealing with the same issues and questions. It’s been an incredible forum to be a part of so far.
One extremely useful component of the Location Rebel program is the entrepreneur blueprints which highlight the businesses built by 9 successful entrepreneurs. Each blueprint will teach you a bit about their business and how they got started and then dives into the resources you need to get started down a similar path. They are really well done and the cool thing is they hang out in the forum as well so you can always ask questions and get answers.
I chose to first follow the Freelance SEO Writing blueprint and immediately started laying the groundwork for setting up my own SEO business. I utilized several of the resources listed in the blueprint, interacted with members in the forum who were pursuing a similar path and set to work building a website. I started telling everyone I knew what I was doing and as a result I landed my first SEO writing job!
Could I have landed that gig without Location Rebel? Maybe, but this program gave me the resources and the encouragement to overcome my fears and start down the path of building a lifestyle that I can be happy with. It isn’t about becoming location independent, although if that is what you want then you can definitely obtain it. This program is more about building a business that allows you to become master of your time so that you decide when and where you work. And that is what true freedom is all about.
I’ve really enjoyed being a part of Location Rebel. From the curriculum to the forum to the blueprints and bonus content I think it’s a fantastic program and has really provided me with new skills and resources to start laying the foundation of a business that I’ll be able to do while living in Indonesia. And Sean is updating and providing new content on a regular basis as well as holding webinars for members as a forum to answer whatever burning questions one might have.
Is Location Rebel right for you?
So you’re probably asking yourself whether Location Rebel is right for you. Well, 9 out of 10 successful entrepreneurs say yes and the 1 holdout was liquored up when he filled out the questionnaire. (OK, I made all that up). But seriously, maybe you’ve been giving some thought to starting your own business but don’t know where to start. Maybe you’ve always dreamed about being the master of your own time. Have you ever been sitting at work looking out the window and wishing you could spend a few hours outside instead of hunched over your keyboard? Ever want the ability to walk your kids to school and pick them up at the end of the day but you’re stuck at work with no escape? Well Location Rebel is your escape pod.
Maybe it’s time to jettison the things in your life that don’t add to your happiness or sense of fulfillment. I’m not saying that Location Rebel is your savior but for me it’s been a great program to get me started building that foundation from which I can grow the business of my dreams. I’m really learning a lot of things that I can equally apply to my photography business as well.
