Course Description

JOIN THE FOODIE REVOLUTION - START YOUR OWN FOOD TOUR TODAY!

Update: Course last updated April 2016

You can make money with literally no previous experience, no start up money needed, and you can get started on it today! And you can do it anywhere in the world you want!

You will need to have a sincere love of meeting and hosting people as well as tasting and sharing various foods.

The best part of this all is that you can grow this into a 6 figure business and have other tour guides do all the work for you!

If you want to make an extra $1000 a month, this is very doable. If you want to scale this up and make $10,000 a month or more, this is also very realistic! We'll show you how in the course!

One of the biggest benefits to owning a food tour business is that you can work and live literally anywhere in the world

If you wish, you can relocate to your dream city and start a food tour with nothing but a little hustle and be well on your way to creating a 6-figure business.

Or maybe you prefer to keep it close to home. Having your own culinary tour is a great way to make a great living while working from home (or from your favorite eateries!)

This course is taught by two people who both live what they teach. Both instructors own their own lifestyle businesses and make great incomes while working only a few hours a week.

Emily has a culinary background and created multiple tours and hired tour guides to run the daily tours.

Sean created his business over 5 years ago and now makes a great living, is traveling world (currently in Europe), and works about 10 hours a week.

Together, we'll share our business and food tour expertise with you to get started quickly.

Instructor Biography

Sean Marshall, Digital Entrepreneur, Lifestyle Business Expert, Author

From Laid Off to Living the Dream

Over 6 years ago, I walked in the front door of my Orange County, California home after getting laid off from what would be my last job ever. When my wife saw the box full of stuff from my office, she instantly knew what happened. Together, we decided to do something crazy – we sold everything we owned, started a lifestyle business, and set out to live our dream life. Long story short - it's been more amazing than we ever hoped it would be.

A natural entrepreneur, and backed by a decade of marketing knowledge, I worked at first with locally based businesses to grow their revenue by marketing online. Because the company was entirely internet-based, it gave us a ridiculous amount of freedom and the ability to visit places we had always wanted to see.

Laptop Lifestyle and Digital Entrepreneurship

I'm a huge fan of lifestyle design and I actually live it! After living in Cozumel, Mexico for over 2 years, we're now living in Spain. Together with my wife & 3 children, I run my business from my laptop from literally anywhere with an internet connection. While becoming a lifestyle entrepreneur isn't right for everyone, I deeply believe that life should be more than commuting, cubicles, and weekend trips to Costco! I love helping people figure out what they deep down want. Money is usually the first challenge, so we start there by creating viable sources of income.

I've been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Reboot Your Life and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings. I also blog at Family Rocketship – a place for 20-, 30-, & 40-somethings to learn how to create a lifestyle business that allows more time for family, friends, & adventure.

Creating a Lifestyle Business & Being a Lifestyle Entrepreneur

My biggest passion is helping as many people as possible who desperately want to break free of the 9-5 and do “something cool" but just need the know-how. This passion stems from my own "wandering in the wilderness" for so long. After doing a lot of work to get where I am, I create stuff that I myself would have loved to have had a long time ago.

In my spare time, you can find me diving the reefs of Cozumel, kayaking, or discussing which of the Avengers is the coolest with my kids - something I'm proud of having all girls! (BTW - Thor is the reigning champ in our family - even my wife agrees on that one).

Instructor Biography

Emily Egge, Chef - Culinary Engineer

I was not always an island dweller and not always a chef (professionally speaking). I was brought up in the United States, primarily in New Jersey, and earned her B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Lafayette College. Following college, I went straight into a corporate environment and worked in management.

During this time, I spent many evenings after work dabbling in cookbooks, watching Top Chef and spending much of my income dining out. I realized that food was not just three square meals a day; it was a way of life and the thought “What am I going to eat next?" was always on my mind. I decided to follow this calling and enrolled in culinary school at the French Culinary Institute in New York City.

I am now a classically trained French Chef who has apprenticed at a number of French and New American restaurants in New York and New Jersey. In 2010 I moved to Cozumel, Mexico where I started a private chef business that has evolved into a "culinary experience business" that hosts a variety of cooking classes, food tours and other related culinary services. Engineer - Chef - Entrepreneur.
