Course Description

"I have bought most of Dan's courses. He's one of those rare guys on Udemy that actually provide value with their courses. If you don't know which career path to choose as a freelancer, this course is going to make it easy for you. I know it has helped me." -Ivan Juras

Maybe you've always felt you were a little different...

You’ve always felt the typical career path wasn't for you...

Something about cubicles and florescent lights always bugged you...

You've never enjoyed reporting to a boss in much the same way a kindergarten student reports to their teacher...

And you really, REALLY, can’t imagine spending the next 30 or 40 years of your life locked in an office or sitting behind the counter at a bank.

But, you aren't sure what else is out there.

I bet if I was sitting there with you right now, you'd turn to me and say something like...

"Yes, but I don't know what else I can do?" What other options do I have?"

Well, I’ve got good news. You have many.

You may have already heard terms like "Digital Nomad" or "Location Independent".

You might have heard stories of people, perhaps a friend of a friend, who "does their own thing" and "just seems to keep travelling".

You'll learn many of the ways they do it inside this course.

I remember shortly after filming this course I was walking through the streets of Prague on a Tuesday afternoon and speaking to a friend of mine about travel and working for yourself.

She says:

"OK YES, I want that! I want to do something meaningful, but I want to work for myself! But I don't know where to start! What can I do!?"

And I tell her:

Funny you should say that, I literally just finished filming a course about this. I guess it will actually be really helpful for people!

The truth is, few people ever take the time to think about their life and actively design or plan for what they want.

Since you're here, I'm going to assume you're one of the few willing to invest at least a few hours in designing the kind of life you really want.

So before we get into the options, you need to know something very important:

-There is no "one size fits all" option for everyone-

Believe it or not, there are human beings who actually enjoy accounting.

Who love the security of an office.

For them, it may actually be the perfect job.

But that isn't you.

So in this course we are going to talk a bit about personality types and self discovery.

You'll even have a little homework that will help you learn more about yourself, and gain clarity about your options.

And while we are on the topic of options, we will discuss plenty of them inside the course. Since you're already looking at better ways of living, why not aim for the sky and go for the best?

You will learn at least a dozen ways you can earn a location independent income.

This means that your income isn't tying you to your home country or city.

You'll be free to travel and explore the world, all while earning enough money to pay for your adventures as you go...

Why not set your sights on a life rich in freedom, travel, and personal development?

Inside this course you'll learn about 10 different types of freelancing you can do to start working for yourself, this month.

Some are more complex, such as programming, but others don't require any previous education or training, and you can learn them online (for free), in just a couple of months.

You'll probably discover one or two types of freelancing you have a natural talent for, or some past experience with. This will shorten your learning curve even more.

Freelancing is a great way to be independent and design the kind of life you want.

At the same time, you can use your skills to meaningfully contribute to other entrepreneurs and business owners.

Imagine doing work you enjoy and actually experiencing the results. Your work is helping someone else live their dream, while financing your own.

Join this course today and discover a world of meaningful work, great pay, and limitless freedom.

"I really enjoyed taking the course and I'm glad that I decided to take it (like I had any good excuses not to). I really love Dan's teaching style. It really kept me focused and eager to take the next lecture (coming from a guy dealing with short attention span).

I'm tempted to take action but first I've got to choose which opportunity is best for me. The production is quality great too (almost forgot to mention it). I Highly Recommend that anyone who is considering a freelancing career take this course!" -David Sanchez

Instructor Biography

Dan Johnston, Location Independent Coach, Author, and Business Trainer

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 retreat...to 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.
