  • No prior knowledge is required to succeed in this course

In this training you'll learn what I think is the best route to start working for yourself and creating a location independent business.

Today more than ever we are fortunate to be able to use technology and entrepreneurship to work for ourselves and create unprecedented levels of freedom. Freedom of location and freedom of time. So whether your goal is to work for yourself and just have an extra few weeks to travel each year, or whether it is to have complete freedom to visit dozens of countries a year, this course will give you a framework for doing so. 

You'll also learn some of the best strategies for being successful and some of the most common reasons people fail (and how you can avoid making the same mistakes!).  

First you'll learn how to choose a service and deliver the most value to clients.

Next you'll learn about the 70% rule and the importance of just getting started and making progress.

We'll then cover the dangers of dabbling and you'll find out why and how to stay focused in one direction until you see great results. 

I'll be available to answer any questions you have on the topics covered. 

Who is the target audience?
  • Those interested or currently working for themselves
  • Freelancers, Consultants and Coaches
  • Authors, Trainers, and Online Instructors

I'm Dan Johnston. I'm a full-time writer, business trainer, and coach.

“That is seriously your life? You are literally living my dream. That’s insane. How can I do it?”

I’ve grown to expect hearing this every time I tell someone about my fairy-tale of a life. But trust me, it wasn’t always this way.

In 2010 I owned my own business and I worked like a dog with the dream of one day “making it”. I sacrificed friendships, health, family and travel opportunities all because I had to work harder for “just a little while longer.”

I just needed to “make it” and then I could I finally start enjoying life.

That was until my business imploded and left me completely, and I mean completely, broke.

At this point I could have taken a job, but it just didn't feel right. I had spent so much time trying to live my dreams, was now the time to quit?

So I decided to take one more risk, and in 2011 I started as a freelance writer.

The journey wasn't easy, but it sure paid off.

Using the same strategies I teach in my courses, I was able to generate a full time income writing within my first few months.

Then in early 2012 I decided to take another risk and see if I could continue freelance writing while travelling the world.

And it worked. It worked really, really, well.

Since 2012 I’ve lived in 7 places including Costa Rica, Manhattan, Barcelona, Italy, Germany and Prague. Each year I try to visit at least 6 new countries.

I’ve also crossed countless items from my bucket list including driving a Lamborghini on my birthday, learning Spanish, and driving a Hank Moody inspired Porsche 911 up Highway 101 in California.

When I was starting out and things got hard I had plenty of opportunities to raise the white flag and turn my back on the life I really wanted.

I’m sure you’ll have the same opportunities. Ignore them.

Don’t ever, ever think going for it, going after what you really want, will be easy.

But it will always, always be worth it.

And I'm here to help in any way I can.
