Join hundreds of people who have quit their jobs and built successful lifestyle businesses with Location Rebel Academy.
As the man was lifted to the heavens, St. Peter met him at the pearly white gates and said, “You’ve been a good, honest man… so you’ve made the cut for Heaven. And just so you know, Heaven is freaking sweet. There’s everything you could hope for… all the food you want without gaining any weight, all the games you want to play and adventures you want to go on and awesome people to hang out with all day long.
There’s only one rule…”St Peter then points behind him to a shiny, red door with gold trim and says, “You must NOT go through that door… regardless of what the circumstances are. NEVER go in there. Okay?”
The man says, ‘Okay.’ And makes his way through the gates into heaven.
For the first month, he’s having a blast… eating great food and hanging out with amazing people. But after a few weeks… he gets curious. “What could possibly be behind that door he wonders?”
Then one day… he found the door open.
He looked over his shoulders and no one was looking.. so he crept in.
When he gets inside, he sees this MASSIVE warehouse of boxes that are stacked to the ceiling like a Costco building. There are endless rows and rows and rows of them. And as he’s walking down the rows, he noticed each box has a name attached to it.
His pace speeds up as he starts searching for where his own box is. After 45 minutes of searching, he finds his box on the third shelf. He reaches up to grab it and brings it down to the ground with him.
The man is standing over the box on the floor in front of him with anticipation… “What could possibly be in here!?!” he wonders.
All of a sudden, he feels a tap on his left shoulder…
It’s St. Peter.
St. Peter asks “What do you think you’re doing? I asked you NOT to go in here.”
The man apologizes and says, “I’m so sorry… the door was open, and I just couldn’t help myself. And then I found my box and got so curious as to what it could be… would you mind telling me what’s in here?”
St. Peter quietly tells him, “What’s in that box is every experience you COULD have had on earth if you were only bold enough to ask for it. Every relationship you could have built. Every adventure you could have gone on. Every country you could have traveled to. Every moment that you could have spent doing what you love.”
Now, my question to you is: If that were your box, would you open it? Would you want to see everything you missed out on while you were on earth?
There’s so much more to life than simply ‘getting by.’ And if you’re ready to draw a line in the sand and STOP accepting the life you’ve built and create a life that makes you ecstatic to wake up every morning, then keep reading because I may be able to help make that a reality…
A few years ago, my life sucked. I was working 50 hours a week as a financial analyst. Suit, tie and shaving every day. I was miserable. I had this incurable wanderlust and desire to experience the world. I hated the fact that each and every day I was working harder than ever to fund someone else’s lifestyle while accomplishing no goals of my own.
I wasn’t traveling to exotic places. I wasn’t building any real-world, useful skills. I had very few good stories. And most importantly, I wasn’t doing any of the stuff that I actually enjoy doing in my life.
Then there was a moment when everything changed. In February of 2009, I took a trip to Brazil for Carnival in Rio. I’d been planning it for over a year and had to beg my boss to allow me to use all of my vacation time to be able to take the trip.
One beautiful, sunny morning I was walking down Copacabana Beach, trying to balance the emotions of living in the moment and taking in all the beauty of the beach – all the while knowing that soon I would be back home, unable to take another vacation like this for 12 months.
Then it hit me… I should be able to do this every day. I should be the one who dictates when and where I’m able to work and travel, not my boss.
That day, I resolved to live a life that would be exciting. One that others would aspire towards, and do it in a way that was on my terms, not the terms of my employer.
That was then. Now, I’m making more money than I did in my old job… working fewer hours… and doing stuff I love every single day.
Throughout my transformation, I learned there’s a steep disconnect between what most people believe vs. what I’ve actually found to be true.
You will run into opposition in your quest to take control of your life. In fact, I’d be willing to bet there’s a good chance that you already have encountered some of this negativity.
Has anyone close to you ever tried to remind you of the “amazing opportunity you’ve been given to have a job that most people would simply be happy to have?"
Or worse, have they labeled you unappreciative for wanting something different? If you’ve read this far, then I’m willing to bet you can relate.
People like that not only make you feel guilty about the situation but more importantly, they make you doubt yourself. It’s very easy to start to question whether or not you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur – or if you’ll ever be able to find a job like that again.
That’s a scarcity mentality that there’s no place for in Location Rebel. Within this program, you’ll learn to adopt a mentality of abundance, as you realize there are limitless options in your life.
Job security is a funny thing. This is the ultimate fallacy when it comes to “what they say vs. what is true.” Traditional thinking is that to be truly secure you had to have a comfortable job with a decent paycheck.
Well as millions of people have learned over the last few years, their “job security” was more of a myth than anything else.
True job security lies in the skills you create for yourself, and the network of people you surround yourself with. With the right skill set, you will always be able to find work – whether it’s for someone else or yourself. And as you grow your network of friends, colleagues, and acquaintances, you’ll never have any shortage of people to turn to when times get rough.
That is real job security – or job security 2.0 as I call it.
I mean it when I say your security lies in the skills you have. In most jobs, you learn a ton of specific skills. You learn how to properly format that Excel document to make block stock trades. You know exactly how to process a new client. You have that cold calling sales script down cold.
But once you leave that job, how are those skills going to benefit you in the real world? The reality is, most of them won’t.
In Location Rebel Academy, we teach you broad skills that will be applicable no matter what. You can do freelance work and charge money for these skills. You can leverage them in your personal projects, or as most of you will do, you’ll do both.
It’s time to start building some assets, rather than liabilities. These skills are assets which will keep you in demand. The other specific skills are liabilities. You get so comfortable doing them, that it becomes second nature. That comfort is what keeps so many people in situations that aren’t great. They’re good enough.
Screw good enough. You want the best life you can possibly have.
This transformation wasn’t without a lot of hard work. I’ve spent thousands of hours and thousands of dollars trying to figure out what works when it comes to building a lifestyle business.
The reality is, once I figured out the secrets, I found it isn’t that hard. You just have to have the right approach.
This is where most people fail.
It only seems right that after spending all of this time learning how to make this lifestyle work, that I share it with all of you. Now you get the sum of all of my trial, error, and research packaged up into a nice little gift.
You’ve been led to believe it takes a LONG time to educate yourself in any given field.
I went to school for 16 years, and aside from the fundamentals in my primary education, was left with very few marketable skills I could turn into money.
The reality is if you have enough motivation you can learn useful skills extremely quickly.
In less than two months I was able to learn Search Engine Optimization skills that took a brand new unknown site to ranking #1 for its main keywords and generating $1,000+ sales on a regular basis.
You don’t need to be an expert. You just need to be an expert relative to the people who are hiring you, and that isn’t difficult to do. In fact, we show you exactly how to become a relative expert in your field of choice.
What it is: Location Rebel Academy is the only course of its type designed to teach you all of the skills necessary to run a lifestyle business from anywhere on Earth.
Who it’s NOT for: Let me be clear that this is not another ‘get rich quick BS ebook.’ This is NOT for people searching for a ‘loophole’; magic bullet, or some magical product that’s going to require no work. This is going to require time and work on your part…if you’re one of those people searching for a magic button, this isn’t it and please don’t sign up because I don’t want you to waste your (or my) time with something you won’t actually implement.
Who it IS for: This IS for people who know there is something more to be gained in life. For people who KNOW what they want out of life. For people who are ready to draw a line in the sand and stop accepting ‘average.’ People who are ready to build a business that gives them freedom, independence and the stability they want so that ultimately they can give their current job the middle finger.
If you’ve ever found yourself wasting time at your current job, reading blogs of other people traveling this earth and having a blast, this is exactly what you need to stop dreaming about that lifestyle and start living it.
What you’ll get: Location Rebel Academy is over eight years of researching, learning, and experimenting with ideas and strategies to make money while traveling the world. You’ll get:
This month between the writing biz and SEO clients my business made $19,200 , I outsourced 90% of the work for $11,900 and made $7100 profit.. Not bad for sending out a few emails and editing a few articles! Now I just need to scale this up further whilst adding other income streams.
I’m off to Thailand in January, I am also going to the Canton Fair in China soon to see if I can pick up some ideas there for a dropshipping/ecommerce business..
Anyway that’s all thanks to Location Rebel Academy and what you’ve created, so thank you Sean!!

"Last July, I'd gotten back from traveling and had to figure out what I wanted to do for work – and I was really kind of down and unsure of what was going to happen.
Now 5 months later, I’m making a full time income, have a supportive mastermind group that I meet with weekly, and am preparing to move back to France next month. None of that would have happened were it not for Location Rebel Academy.
LRA Member, Katherine Wright
I'm just writing to say thank you. Today was my last day as a corporate employee and I would not be able to say that right now if it wasn’t for your program.
As I make this transition and continue to build my entrepreneurial skill set, I will be relying on the things I have learned (and continue to learn) in Location Rebel.
It doesn’t just teach you how to make money… that’s really just a side benefit. More importantly, the blueprints give you enough information that if all you did was go through each one and never apply it, you would still have a working knowledge of those things.
I am certain that each of these blueprints will help me in my own online business, even if I don’t gain “expert” status in that area.
Your blog and your program were exactly what I needed at exactly the right time.
Thank you so much.
LRA Member, Missy Cook
"All in all, it’s been an amazing year and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for creating a community that has helped me and a program that gave me the kick start I needed to go after what I wanted. I couldn’t be more grateful." -Steve Erl
Hey Sean, I just wanted to let you know how much I am freaking loving Location Rebel. This is one of the most life changing experiences I’ve ever had and I am so glad that your sales page work as well as it did because I would regret every minute that I wasted not being a member. - Ian Pickering
Location Rebel Academy has 14 fundamental blueprints that are designed to teach you the basic skills you need to know online. To take things a step further, they’ll also get you making money within a couple months – building your confidence in your ability to successfully build an online business.
One of the most important aspects to being successful with this lifestyle and this kind of business is having the right mindset in place. In this blueprint we help you start making the fundamental shifts in thinking necessary to be successful and plant the entrepreneurial seeds you'll need to see quick growth.

SEO is changing rapidly. What worked just two years ago, doesn’t work now. Learn what does, and how it might not be what you’re expecting it to be. SEO might have changed, but it’s not dead, and we teach you how to capitalize on what’s working now.
It’s no secret Copywriting is the most important skill you can have if you want to be successful online (or in life). We go into extreme detail on the best ways to learn copywriting, and along with Ash, world class copywriter Derek Johanson and founder of Copyhour, has provided some significant input to this blueprint designed to get you writing that sells, now.
One of the best ways to start work on your own terms and travel? Create remote work agreement. Jimmy worked for a Fortune 500 company and created a proposal that allowed him to move across the country to be with family, and give him more freedom than he ever had at his cubicle. We include the exact proposal he used to get his boss to say yes.
Every wonder who writes those instruction manuals for that new television or stereo system? Well people like Alison do, and they get paid a LOT of money to do it. Alison has worked everywhere from Ottawa to Beijing while still spending time with her family and doing the things she loves. If you know how to get this work, the flexibility and earning potential is huge. Alison helps give the blueprint for getting there.
Joel Runyon has recently quit his job and has built a full-time business helping others with their Adwords and pay-per-click marketing campaigns. Not only does he work from anywhere, but he manages tens of thousands of dollars in ad spend each month – which leads to much more than that for his client’s bottom line. In this blueprint, we teach you how to stop wasting time and do PPC the right way, and make it both a potential freelance income stream, or way to add to boost sales and engagement of your own products.
No matter what kind of business you build, you need to know how to sell. That means selling not only your products and services, but also yourself. Yet, so many people struggled with sales. Not anymore, we've got sales pro and Location Rebel member David Anderson to break down exactly what you need to do in order to really build your own sales skills. You don't want to miss this one.
Location Rebel Academy has eight fundamental blueprints that are designed to teach you the basic skills you need to know online. To take things a step further, they’ll also get you making money within a couple months – building your confidence in your ability to successfully build an online business.
To put it simply, this advanced blueprint is a monster. It allows you to take each of the skills you’ve learned in the other blueprints and apply them in a way that can be extremely profitable for you. When done the right way affiliate marketing can be one of the best ways to make money online (but only when done the right way.) This blueprint walks you through exactly how I make thousands of dollars a month using these techniques, but more importantly, shows you how to do it as well.
The newest and perhaps the most in depth of all the blueprints. The product creation blueprint has been developed as a capstone to everything else in the program. Derek Johanson and I have built numerous information products over the last couple of years, and have learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t. This allows you to learn from our mistakes, build yourself an asset, and begin making money while doing, well, pretty much whatever you want.
Kyle Durand is one of the smartest people I know. Not only is he a tax attorney, but he’s an entrepreneur as well. He knows exactly what you need to do in order tomake sure your ass is covered from day 1 with your new business. Worried about account, taxes, or whether or not you actually need to register your new biz? Never fear, we cover all of this in our latest “business structure” blueprint.
Dan has built a million-dollar business through a series of e-commerce stores. Yes that’s right, 7 figures annually. The beauty of it is, with the new e-commerce solutions it is extremely easy to set these sites up and start making money right away. In this blueprint Dan walks you through everything from finding a profitable niche, to telling you exactly how to set up your store online. As a bonus, Shopify Developer Tristan King, holds your hand through every aspect of setting up the technical side of your store.
These days, the web has evolved. Things like SEO, copywriting, and social media are much more entangled than they used to be – so you need to have skills in each, and more importantly know how they all work together. Liz has been our community manager for years and is the brains behind our social media strategy. In this in depth blueprint we cover all of them major social platforms, and talk strategy for each.
David Anderson returns in this blueprint to really take your sales to the next level. He highlights the advanced tactics, strategies, and techniques he's used to grow expert sales teams, not only his own, but also his clients. He'll give you everything you need to know to step up your sales game, connect with clients, and close deals in the quickest amount of time possible.
Have you ever tried doing something unconventional on your own? Something your friends and family may not understand, or even look down upon?
I have, and it’s really, really difficult.
Telling loved ones you want to leave your job to pursue some dream to be your own boss, travel the world, or simply be able to work from home can be a daunting task. Why leave that security? Why run that risk?
Because you know there’s more to life than being chained to a desk for 50 hours a week, while you build someone else’s business.
The absolute most valuable part of Location Rebel Academy is the community it provides.
We have over 4,000 people just like you. People who have made a commitment to get more out of life. People who are willing to take a leap of faith to do it, and people who are eager to help and support anyone else pursuing the same path.
That’s the most valuable part of Location Rebel.
Other free communities or forums don’t have the same level of commitment LR provides. They are full of people who love to talk but aren’t ready to take action. In this community, we have people at every step of the journey. Those who have just started their entrepreneurial path this week that you’ll be able to relate to, as well as people who started two years ago and have achieved enormous success in their lifestyle business.
You get the benefit of support from both.
Increased accountability and guidance, extra paying work as you get up and running, and people that will be just as happy as you are to share in your successes.
That’s powerful, and that’s what Location Rebel really provides.
A few years ago, I did a test. A 48-hour sale, where for the same price, I included both of my other premium membership programs, Overcoming the Fear of Uncertainty and Hacking the High Life.
Without totally realizing it, I created something truly special that added immense value to the people who got in on the deal.
When you’re just getting started with an unconventional lifestyle, you’re understandably a little apprehensive and afraid of what might happen. Overcoming the Fear of Uncertainty helps to squash those second guesses and hesitations, and shows you how to truly embrace uncertainty.
Once you’ve done that, our flagship course Location Rebel Academy gives you everything you need to build an online business: the skills, the sales know-how, and most importantly the supportive community that knows exactly what you’re going through.
Business well on its way? Then there’s just one step left: the dream. Whether that’s working from a ski chalet in Chamonix or a beautiful veranda overlooking the water in Bali, Hacking the High Life shows you how to make these dreams a reality – for much less money than you think.
The best part? Now all three of these courses are available on one domain, for one price, right now. It’s been one of the biggest value adds to the community since its inception and is something I’m really excited about.
Want just a little more info? No problem, we’ve got you covered. Read on!
"Today is officially one month for me since joining Location Rebel Academy. I have to admit, I went back and forth A LOT before signing up. When I explained to my wife that I wanted to spend hundreds of dollars on this, she looked at me like I had lost my mind.
One month later, both she and I are stunned at the results.…I’m sitting here shaking my head. I see almost $1000 into my paypal in the past two weeks and an email from one SEO guy ordering $900 in work over the next 10 days. Unbelievable. Location Rebel is the best money I’ve ever spent." - Ryan Smith

"This may not seem like a big deal to you, but I quietly set a goal for myself this month and it took me until 11:59PM on January 31st to make it! My goal was to generate $4000 in freelance writing income in January. I’m proud to say that I actually did it! My final number was $4030. This is also with a full time job."
Sent on July 22nd:
"It’s tough to put into words what has happened since I’ve joined Location Rebel. I started with the freelance writing blueprint in January and am happy to say that as of right now I’ve grossed $35,000 this year alone from writing. On top of that, I’ve subbed out over 90% of my writing. I’m still working a full time job as well but hope to be able to leave the 9-5 at some point relatively soon. Thanks for all that you have done. I truly believe that if you are willing to put in the time and effort you can totally succeed with the Location Rebel Academy program.”
-LRA Member, Blair Robinson
"Since joining LR in April, I've almost replaced my full-time employment income from when I worked for the State. I have three on-going SEO, copywriting, and content clients all thanks to the Location Rebel forums. I can pay rent now, but most of all, I can say “I’m a freelance writer,” without “aspiring” as a prefix."
LRA Member, Natalie Stickel
Sean, I swear to you – Location Rebel is BY FAR, the greatest learning/investment I’ve EVER made…I love it, hell, I have my tabs set up to automatically open to Google, Yahoo, and LR… Brian Valentin
Q. Can I really quit my job in 6 months using this program?
A: Yes, you can. However, it’s going to take a lot of work on your part. Location Rebel shows you exactly what to do, and how to do it, but you need to be at a place where you’re willing to make the time commitment to yourself to make things happen. If you aren’t ready to spend at least 10-20 hours a week on your new venture, then you probably aren’t ready for this program. If you are, amazing things will happen sooner than you might think.
Q. How quickly can I start making money with Location Rebel?
A: That depends on how motivated you are to get to work. In the past some members have started making money within the first week of joining the course, others it took a month or more. Much of it is dependent on what type of business you decide to create. If you are going to do feelance writing, for instance, it’s easier to start making money right away than if you decide to become a copywriter or pursue affiliate marketing. You could also start by doing content writing to make some income, while you build up your copywriting business. There are all sorts of ways to make this work; it’s our job to make sure you find the one that works best for you.
Q. I'm Not Based in the United States, Can I Still Do This?
A: Absolutely! I started implementing the strategies in the course while I was in Thailand. I launched the course originally from Bali. The primary purpose of Location Rebel Academy is to teach you how to build a business you can run from anywhere, regardless of whether it’s at your dining room table or a coffee shop in Tokyo. We have members on every continent (except Antarctica), and about 50% of them are outside the U.S.
Q. I’m 50 years old and have a family and a mortgage, can I still go through the program?
A: Of course you can! This isn’t necessarily about building a business that allows you to take off to a tropical island. Current members are anywhere from 18 to 70 years old. What Location Rebel will do is allow you to spend more time with your friends and family over time. It will help you create a business and a plan that’s tailored to your lifestyle goals as opposed to just your financial goals – thus giving you a more well-rounded lifestyle as you build your new business.
Q. Are all of these testimonials actually real members?
A: Every single one of them. And like I said, nearly all of them (if not all) were unsolicited and I just asked if I could republish them here.
Q. Does Location Rebel work in 2021? Has it been updated?
A: 100% yes on both accounts. In the last few years, we’ve had more success stories than ever, and all of the strategies are updated on a regular basis to make sure they still work in the current online landscape. Most recently we've added our new "Freelance Writing" blueprint, to make sure it's 100% up to date for 2021. The majority of our members decide to start with freelance content writing, so we're really excited for this new update.
Q: Are you a real person? Is this a Scam?
A: Yes, I'm a real person, and no this isn't a scam! Believe me; I get how sketchy the internet is. There are a lot of people out there trying to take your money without providing any value in return. This is not one of those situations. I do everything I can to personally help every single person who joins our community succeed. Feel free to Google "Sean Ogle" or "Location Rebel," and you should find everything you need to answer this question.
Q: Do you still have the money back guarantee?
A: Absolutely! Sometimes the only way to know for sure if something is right for you is to try it. That’s why we take all of the risk out of joining. If you decide it’s not for you, that's ok. To get your refund, shoot me an email within 30 days and let me know why the course isn't a good fit for you, and I’ll refund your money.
Q: Given the pandemic and current economy, will this even work?
A: More than ever, there is a HUGE demand for content right now. For the last 9 months people have been spending far more time at home consuming content. So blogs, businesses, and brands are trying to create as much as they can. That means they're still hiring freelance writers en masse. It also means this is the best time in years to start a new niche site of your own - if that's a direction you're considering.
“After one month of starting my SEO writing thing, I found a client giving me a project of almost 50 articles, due at the end of the month. I can honestly say between my regular job and this, I’ve been pretty busy and made the money for LR back plus more, in 1 month!
I can say I’m really happy with this result, considering I’m writing in English, which isn’t my first language!” - Chris Silvestri (Rome, Italy)
"I really committed to the Location Rebel program about 8 months ago. I can't believe what's happened since then.
My business is bringing in consistent revenue every month, and I'm leaving my job and bought a one way ticket to Asia to travel the world and grow my business."
LRA Member, Colin Pomeroy
You may not know this, but originally Location Rebel started out as a free forum way back in 2008. It had some success early on, but quickly it became a ghost town and was full of irrelevant conversation.
Because it was free.
None of the people in the community were actually committed to making a change.
In Location Rebel Academy we have over 4,000 members that are serious about changing their life. Every single one of them has paid to be here. It’s that investment that weeds out people who aren’t serious.
If you aren’t willing to invest in yourself and commit to the process – then you aren’t a good fit for us anyway.
Similar courses from people with smaller communities and less experience than us go for double, triple, or even 10x the cost of Location Rebel Academy.
Now is a much better time to join than when I launched it. Or even a year ago. Why? Because there’s way more value inside of it now – both in terms of content and the community.
We have members at every step of the process. The ones who have been at it for 5 years and have 6 figure businesses, as well as those just getting started that you can turn to for support and accountability. I don’t know of any community that provides that as well as we do.
Imagine for a second that you give me $749. Then in 8 weeks I give you that $749 back. Then at the end of the year I give you $5,000.
Is that something you'd be interested in? Of course it is. And that's what the Academy will help you do. We'll help you earn back your initial investment as quickly as possible, and then over the course of the coming months help you earn more and more each month.
So yes, while $749 is by no means inexpensive, the value you’ll get out of being part of this community will far outweigh the cost – and will most likely help you earn that money back very quickly.
"Right now, I am just happy to be making some extra money. I was so surprised to see my post on the LR forum as a testimonial on last week's LR email. I was so excited I took a screenshot and texted it to my husband!!
Almost all of the Rebels I have emailed have responded back to me. So I am getting work from 2-3 people now.
I am very happy I joined Location Rebel and cannot wait for the next step of location independence!! Thanks again and thank you for creating Location Rebel Academy!!”
LRA Member, Melissa Baatz
I am now location independent, all thanks to Location Rebel Academy.
I never would have gotten here if it weren’t for the LRA forums, connections I met through them and the courses giving me the confidence and know-how to go out there and get what I wanted.
Now, I run a successful Amazon consultant business from anywhere in the world I want (which is soon to be Barcelona with a fellow LRA “alum"). THANK YOU, SEAN!"
LRA Member, Rachel Wagers
"Just wanted to brag about my first dollar made online! It would have been impossible to accomplish this without the LRA community (literally, as the job came from a fellow member). It was by no means a big project or for a large sum of money but it was a HUGE confidence booster.
So thank you Sean, Liz and every LR community member. Through sharing your experience and giving invaluable, practical advice you really do inspire a lot of people to follow their dreams, including me!"
LRA Member, Chrisjan Pauw
"Your writing and Location Rebel Academy have changed my life like you wouldn’t believe.
A year ago when I first came across your content you opened my eyes to the possibility of living a location independent lifestyle. It was exactly what I was looking for and everyone I knew told me it was not possible. But you showed me that it was.
Location Rebel also laid the groundwork for me to start my own SEO business and blog. I realize I’ve still got a long ways to go, but you put me on the right path and I thank you so much for that.”
LRA Member, Alex Gunderman
"The resources and community helped me build the confidence to put myself out there and pursue freelance work. Your program really made me believe reinventing yourself was possible and easier than I had made it out to be in my mind.
Thanks Sean, for making freelancing seem like anyone can do it. Buying the Location Rebel program is the best investment I have ever made online."
LRA Member, Tracey Tullis
This page is getting really long, so rather than continue to go on and on, I'm just going to share with you 10 of the best reasons I think you should join Location Rebel Academy.
1) We've been around for over 11 years.
This first iteration of this site started in May of 2009. During that time, there have been a lot of online courses that have come and gone. The reason we're still around, have so many good case studies, and grown to over 4,000 members. It's because 1) we legitimately care, and 2) what we teach actually works.
2) You get the Freelance Writing Blueprint AND 12 Week Freelance Writing Bootcamp.
This blueprint is a beast. At almost 40,000 words, it's everything we know about freelance writing. You're going to learn how to do everything from picking a niche to getting a site up and running. Plus how to create contracts and invoices, where to find potential clients, and how to figure out your rates. It's all here one place.
Then on top of that, with the Bootcamp, we hold your hand every step of the way for the next 3 months to ensure you make progress and know exactly what you need to be doing at any given point.
3) You're going to learn how to send the perfect email.
Weird thing to include here, right? Honestly, learning how to write a compelling email might be the most important skill I'll teach you. Cold pitches to clients, influencer outreach, building relationships with mentors - all of these things become easy when you know how to send a proper email. And trust me, 99% of people, don't.
4) You actually get access to us.
When you look at the giant mega courses out there, do you think you're actually getting access to the founders of those courses? In short? No. You get full email support from me (Sean) and Liz (our community manager) via the forums and email. If you have a question, need feedback, or want help? You'll get an answer.
5) Our community remains extremely high quality due to Lifetime Memberships.
What happens when you have a community that requires a monthly membership? Eventually, people leave as it isn't worth it for one reason or another to keep paying. Location Rebel Academy is one payment (or 6 smaller payments) for lifetime access. This means that members who joined years ago and have built successful six-figure businesses, still have access and stick around to help the new members. This has led to a wealth of knowledge in our community with people who are at various points in the journey.
6) It's a community that grows with you.
One of the best things about Location Rebel Academy is the variety of the blueprints and content. Our Freelance Writing and Steps to Success Blueprints help you get off the ground immediately regardless of your background. But then our advanced blueprints (like Information Products and Affiliate Marketing for instance), help ensure when you're ready to expand your business, we're there to help you grow. And with the bonuses included this week only? You'll have all the tools you need to go from nothing to an online empire.
7) Our Office Hours Calls ensure you get ALL the answers you need.
We do monthly office hours calls where you can hop on the phone with Liz and myself, and we'll help you work through whatever roadblocks you're having within your business. This alone is worth the cost of admission, as we'll ensure you're continuing to build momentum each and every week as you're getting started.
8) Even if you don't feel like you have technical skills, aren't internet savvy, and/or have no idea for a business, Location Rebel Academy helps you with ALL of that.
This is one of the best parts of Location Rebel Academy. Any English speaker with a high school writing level can succeed in this course. So if you feel like you don't have any ideas or aren't sure where to start? Don't worry, we've got your back and walk you through everything.
9) You Won't Find More In-Depth Training on Freelance Writing
We've literally spent the last decade teaching people how to build freelance writing businesses and profitable blogs. We've tried it all, and one of the biggest reasons to join is so that you don't have to try it all. You can jump right in based on what we KNOW works. Our strategies have been tested over and over again within both our businesses as well as those of our members. So if you want a proven, step by step system? Look no further.
10) We've been there.
Bottom line? Location Rebel Academy is based off things I've done in my own life. I took the "this worked for me, maybe it will work for you" mindset, and now we've had hundreds of other successful students. This isn't theory. This is stuff we've tested and put into practice, and are simply sharing the processes that have worked best.
"I also want to take this opportunity to give you a massive THANK-YOU for putting together Location Rebel Academy. It gets the credit for getting me on the road to making money online quickly.
Me, my husband, and our 2 kids have been traveling full time for just over 1.5 years now in the freaking tropics! (a lifelong dream of mine). No more winter for me! Wahoo!!!! I'm writing this from my 3rd floor rented condo in Kuala Lumpur, with a view of coconut palm trees and the swimming pool outside my window.
I knew exactly what I wanted to get out of joining LRA, and now I've got it! I can work wherever the heck I want, we can pick up and travel whenever we please, we don't have to ask permission from anyone. Finally. The trick will be to keep it... but I'm 99% sure I can do that."

"Location Rebel gave me a huge opportunity to explore a million different options that are out there, that I never would have been able to see otherwise.
I went from saying “I wish one day I could do this” to being proactive and finding ways to achieve my goals. I never would have been able to do that without Location Rebel Academy."
-LRA Member, Asia Gregg
"Location Rebel has been the entire reason for my success with freelance writing, no question about it. It would have taken me much longer to find this path, had I not joined Location Rebel Academy."
LRA Member, Marc Sheforgen
If there's one thing I've learned, it's that not every course or community is a perfect fit for every person - but often the only way to know for sure is to try it out.
Because of that we offer a 30 day guarantee. If you join and decide it isn't quite the right fit, or it's not what you thought it would be, just email us and let us know why the course isn't a fit for you and we'll issue a prompt and full refund.
No hard feelings!
"I wouldn't be where I am today if I weren't for Location Rebel Academy. I'm finally making my goal income, working my goal hours and it allows me to do all the things I want during the week.
LRA Member, Jason Gass
"No matter what happens from here on in, I will always be grateful to you and the Location Rebel community for the constant support and guidance.
It’s literally been a life changer for me and for that I would like to say a massive THANK YOU.
LRA Member, Carlo Cretaro
“I wanted to write you and tell you just how awesome life has been lately.
I joined Location Rebel in May, didn’t really start for a few weeks – took my time reading and freaking out like everyone does. Second week of June, I sent my first email ever, and here is where I am today: So far, I’ve made $1850 this month and all of them are reoccurring projects in one way or another!!!I
I still have everything and anything to learn, I know I have a really long road to go but I couldn’t be more ecstatic and I just had to thank you!”
LRA Member, Jessica Dusak
"At the beginning of this year, I was dipping my toe everywhere and had no idea what I wanted to do.
I had just went through an Amazon FBA business heartbreak and didn’t know what to try next.
I remember landing a couple one-off content writing projects for $30-$50 each (that took me all day to write), and I felt so cool!
Now I look back and realize how far I’ve come. I now have 2 regular clients who send me consistent work every week. I only write for them about 10 hours per week and usually make at least $1000/month—enough to pay for my life in Colombia."
LRA Member, Mitch Glass
Awesome post and great advice. I joined location rebel almost exactly one month ago, and started with the hometown gameplan.
It’s been a a successful route to say the least and my membership has paid for itself 2 and a half times over…so far.
Thanks for making me feel motivated and entertained by some sweet cat memes.
LRA Member, Josh Slone
"If you know you’re ready to start a business, just do it. I now have 10-20 people in Location Rebel that I talk with on a weekly basis, and I could travel to go see any one of them and have a place to stay.
I made $3,000 in my first month and while I was totally overwhelmed and probably over-promised a bit, I knew I’d find the support I needed within the Location Rebel community."
LRA Member, David Anderson
Since January, I’ve had $1000 months every time except June, and that’s only because I didn’t follow up on a few things.
Better than actually giving me extra income, in my opinion, is the hope it’s given me that I really can make it as a freelancer, working from wherever I go, so that my work will fund my lifestyle instead of my lifestyle bending around my work.
LRA Member, Jason Jacobs
I just wanted to report that I landed my first content writing gig this past weekend! I am one of the people that Sean had mentioned in his email last night. I am elated!
I am writing this to encourage others by letting them know that there are freelance writing jobs out there.
I am also writing this to give credence to Sean and Liz’s integrity. They are not making this stuff up.
And no they didn’t pay me to write this
If you remember the tagline from Nutri-system’s Weight Loss Program for Men. “You eat the food, You lose the weight”.
The LRA Freelance Writers Blueprint equivalent tag line would be, “You follow the Blueprint, You get the job”.
LRA Member, John P.
"I am thrilled to tell the LRA world that I landed my first client today. Money in the bank and ready to get started.
Sean helped me get into an industry conference where I met a variety of prospects that I followed up with, and after a few distractions, landed my first client in my chosen industry.
Thank you Team LRA, Sean and Liz. I am not terribly active in the forums but I do watch and follow and read and get inspired. Thanks for all the sharing."
