Is it really possible for you to earn a living, writing on your laptop from any place in the world?
Yes, it is possible. But, …
You are going to have to work at it. Really hard. Every day.
Every day, no matter where you are or how you feel, you will need to write. You will need to check your email, you’ll need to answer a few of them. You will need to check stats and reply to comments.
Having a laptop lifestyle doesn’t mean just carrying it around in a cool bag. It means having it open and creating. It means working.
It means educating yourself. It means making a schedule and sticking to it. It means committing to spend the time and take the steps required to secure the job or client. It means being accountable to your audience and yourself.
Find what works. There are many ways to work from home, lots of websites with tons of information. Finding something that makes sense for you is half the battle.
Transcription is one of the fastest growing home-based professions today. Anyone who takes the time to learn how to do this properly will find themselves with enough work to stay busy and a steady paycheck.
Find out if Transcription is right for you by taking this 7-day Mini Course. There’s no obligation and you’ll discover an opportunity to develop a much-needed skill and create a business that supports the Laptop Lifestyle.
There’s More Than One Way to Live Your Dreams
Maybe transcription work isn’t for you. Then what is your path? Maybe you need to spend some time educating yourself. No time or money for a formal education? Try Coursera, or edx.org, or Google MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses). With a little research, you’ll find a course taught by a professional education, many with Ph.D. after their names, from some of the best schools in the country.
Think you’re not up to learning something new? Start with this course from Coursera, Learning How to Learn. Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects. Barbara Oakley, Ph.D., author of A Mind for Numbers. How to Excel at Math and Science (Even If You Flunked Algebra), walks students through proven learning techniques that will help even the old dogs like me learn new tricks. Coursera even has an app (I’m using my iPad) making video watching and reading a breeze.
I want to talk to people who can share their journey from day one to the moment when they realized they were on to something to now – where ever now may find them. Let’s find out what it really takes to turn a dream, a hobby or a passion into an income that supports the life you dream of living.
