At the beginning of 2017, I launched a program called the Freedom Masterclass, where 9 people undertook a 6-month program to make a significant change in their lives. It was the first time I’d tested a program of this nature where the participants were in different geographic locations around the world. We would meet via video conference every second week and stay connected using an online messaging app between meetings: to chat, share ideas and keep one another motivated.
This first Masterclass was a great success and the participants made positive and lasting changes in their lives. Armed with what I learned from this first Masterclass and with the input from a new partner (who was a participant in the first masterclass – Alex), we’ve refined our model and are excited to launch Ignite.
Ignite is a 6-month Masterclass, to help anyone set up an online teaching business. The premise from which we’ve approached this project is that everyone has something that they can teach in the world. We will be working with 12 applicants and taking them from an idea (or helping them to come up with an idea if they don’t yet have one) and working through every single step required, to build, market and launch a website that teaches on the internet.
We believe that once a person is able to separate their earnings from their time, that they can experience true choice and freedom, and we have an ambitious goal to use Ignite to empower 1,000 people to build a business that sets them free!
Building a business on the internet is based on the same principles of trust as doing business in person. The way that this is done online is through assisting and serving your audience with value and empathy before transacting. To demonstrate how we do this, read a blog post that I wrote about being a Digital Nomad for 4 years here, and grab a FREE copy of an e-book that I recently wrote.
The e-book is titled “The Long-Term Traveler’s Playbook – Where to Go. How to Get There and How to Fund a Life of Freedom and Long-Term Travel”. The book contains all the tips, tricks and lessons that I’ve learned from four years of full-time travel, and will be relevant for travelers of all types. From backpackers to students looking for working holiday options, retired couples looking to shake things up in their lives or someone that enjoys a few weeks of packaged holidays each year, there is something in the book for everyone. Alex and I have put a lot of effort into the book and can’t wait to share it with you and the world.
