9 years. That’s how long I’ve been running my own online businesses, and while the online landscape is completely different now than it was back when I started in 2009, there’s one thing that remains the same: There is no one right way to build an online business. Every single one is different. Even businesses in the […]

Last year I started a golf community called The Eighty Club. The idea was it would be a place for likeminded golfers to be able to network, share their home courses with each other, and create a global community that prioritizes camaraderie and love of the game over anything else. One of the promises of […]
Three weeks down, one week to go. Today marks my 23rd day of daily blogging, and it’s been an interesting experience. So far it’s fair to say it’s pretty much gone exactly how I expected it would. The first week there was a lot of new found interest and engagement. People were leaving comments, traffic […]
No, not like that, get your mind out of the gutter. For the last couple of years, I’ve found myself stuck in the same box with Location Rebel. It’s completely contradictory to where I was when I started growing the site what feels like eons ago. Back in the day, I wrote about a lot […]
I’ve been helping people build online businesses for a long time now. And in doing that you begin to pay attention to patterns. One of the most prevalent has to do with the people who succeed vs those who don’t – and more specifically, when the ones who don’t succeed give up. When people join Location Rebel […]

Ok, so you’ve got your product and service ready to go, all you need to do now is put up the offer and wait for the money to roll in, right? Well, kind of. One of the absolute most difficult things to do in online marketing is to write and create a sales page. If […]
In the last few years, I’ve read over 50 business and self help books. Yea, I counted. And no matter what I read, I always try to find some sort of takeaway or lesson. With some books it’s easy, I’ll have full pages highlighted in my Kindle. With others, well not so much. But even […]
It always starts the same. “Dear Editor.” “Hey Admin.” “Hi Location Rebel Editor.” And my personal favorite, “Dear Mr. Sean.” They always end up in the same place too. The trash. Sometimes, if I’m feeling annoyed, I’ll respond to especially egregious pitches in the hopes that a glimmer of awareness will help people realize they […]
