LRA Member Story: How Natalie Replaced Her Day Job Income in 8 Months With Location Rebel

By Sean Ogle •  Updated: 08/08/23 •  1 min read

After saving up for a couple of years, last year Natalie Stickel left her job to take the trip of a lifetime.

She backpacked and camped through the US for a few months before heading to Australia, Thailand, and Bali for another three months.

The trip exceeded all expectations, but when she got back and returned to a day job, she was left with more wanderlust and a burning desire to figure out how to make it on her own.

Enter Location Rebel Academy.

She joined a few years ago after first hearing about the site while traveling.

Within her first month in LRA, she made her money for the course back.

Within eight months, she had nearly replaced her income from her day job through freelance writing and other online work.

I had the opportunity to talk with Natalie about her story and how Location Rebel Academy helped with that journey – and found the conversation to be really inspiring.

    Congrats Natalie on your success and may 2017 bring you even more.

  2. It’s official – Location Rebel works!

    I started with LR back in 2014 I think and studied the SEO, Copywriting and SEO Writing courses. Kicked it off with content writing and never looked back…

    Good work Natalie!

    Once people apply their skills to the online marketplace, it’s only a matter of time before they start making enough on a regular basis to free themselves from wherever they happen to be. Love hearing stories like this, do more in the future!
