How to Replace Your Day Job Income in Under 8 Months

2017-01-05 09:43:51

Around this time every year I find myself sitting back and reflecting on where I am in life. I think about all of the things that went well throughout the year, as well as all of those things I wanted to do, but simply didn’t.

Why do I do this now?

Because although January 1st is a fairly arbitrary day, it’s mentally the easiest day of the year to make a major change and start doing those things big things I didn’t make time for.

So I have a question for you. What do you want to do in 2017?

  • Do you want to travel more and see an exotic place you've never been?
  • Do you want to stop working for someone else and take control of your life?
  • Do you want to quit saying I wish I had time to ____, and actually be able to do it?
  • Maybe you just want to spend more time with your family?

While I was in my corporate job, I always started to get kind of depressed around the New Year. I wanted to do all of those things listed above, but I usually just ended up back at work with another 6 months to wait until summer.

Luckily, that’s all changed over the last few years. Not just for me, but for a lot of other people as well.

One of them being Natalie Stickel.

Natalie joined Location Rebel about 8 months ago.

She had saved up for a couple years to take a dream trip for 6 months that included backpacking across the U.S., and spending time in Australia, Bali, and Thailand.

Natalie had the time of her life, but upon returning home to Virginia she was left without much to look forward to. She wanted to be able to have that freedom from her trip, all the time and wasn't clear on how to do it.

While in Australia she stumbled upon Location Rebel Academy, and joined within a few weeks of returning from her trip.

Within a month she had more than made back the cost of joining the community, and less than 6 months into her new business she'd essentially replaced her income from her day job.

The coolest part?

Anyone can follow the exact steps that Natalie took - it isn't difficult, it just takes some commitment and willingness to trust the system.

Recently I had a chance to talk to Natalie about the specific things she did see so much success, so quickly.

Check out my interview with Natalie here.

Between Now And New Years Day...

These days, New Years is one of my favorite holidays, because as I mentioned, it's the best chance we have all year to hit the reset button. It allows you to easily say "this year I'm going to do something different", and actually be in the frame of mind to make it happen.

So many people talk about taking a chance, building a business and changing their life. My primary goal for 2017 is to help as many people as I possibly can achieve that goal.

Just think, if you had a community of people to hold your hand for every step of the way and allow you to do the same thing Natalie did, would that be exciting to you?

This time next year your life could look completely different. I don't know about you, but that excites me.

Over the next couple days I'm going to share a couple case studies like Natalie's from normal people who have changed their lives in a short period of time using Location Rebel.

I'm going to give you some updates on exactly what's happening in the community, and where it's going in 2017 (hint: I'm the most excited I've been in a long time).

And most importantly, I'm going to give you the details on what’s easily the most valuable and useful 72 Hour Promotion I’ve ever created for Location Rebel (I'm doing one thing I've never done before).

The sale will go live for 72 hours on January 1st at 10am PST.

But First, Let's Get to Know Each Other Better

If you have a quick second, I'd love it if you could hit reply to this email and simply tell me the one biggest change you hope to make in 2017.

Change starts with accountability, so think of this as step one.

I'll then personally respond with the one biggest change I hope to make. Email is way more fun when it's a two way street, so don't hesitate to actually respond and let me know.

I'm also happy to answer any questions you might have about Location Rebel Academy or your goals for the new year.

Just give me 24 hours to respond. I'm currently traveling and am in Dublin for the first time(!), so it might take me a little bit longer than normal to write back (but I will!)

In the meantime, don’t forget to take a look at my conversation with Natalie (her story is really inspiring), and tomorrow look for an email where I'll share the single most important component to creating a successful business as a solopreneur (can you guess what it is?).

Until then,


PS: A quick disclaimer...over the next few days you'll receive more emails from me than usual. I totally understand if you want to , but I hope you don't. My goal here is to provide you with encouragement and a step by step plan to make major changes in your life. We'll get back to our regularly scheduled programming very soon :)
