How’s that for a generic title, huh? There are literally thousands of blog posts on the internet about this topic, but I wanted to share what I would personally do if I had to make a hundred bucks in a week, with no prior skills, experiences, or connections. It’s really not nearly as hard as you might think – but it does take a little bit of work to setup. The good news, is once you’ve done the basics, depending on the size of your network, you can repeat over and over again and continue to bring in revenue. You ready for this? Awesome. If you’d rather watch a video than read through this post, I’ve got you covered. Watch away, and

Plan a Trip: My 9 Most Indispensable Travel Tools

Note from Sean: If you’ve been reading this blog long enough and follow what we do over here at Location 180, you should know that Liz Froment is my Location Rebel community manager.

15 Awesome Work Tools With Offline Features

Note from Sean:  So as someone who travels a lot, I often find myself in situations where wifi is either subpar or completely unavailable. Like the back of a 10 hour long night bus in Cambodia, or you know, just an international flight.

In this post she shares 15 different tools and resources with offline features so that you don’t have to stop working when you’re out in the middle of nowhere.

How to Get Everything You Want in Life

Pretty bold statement in that headline, right? Well I think I can back it up. Yesterday I turned 31. I look at that number and while it’s a little bit scary, I can’t help feel good about everything I’ve accomplished over the last 7 years since leaving my job and setting out on my own. As I was reflecting back on the years and thinking about what to write for this post, I came to a pretty humbling realization. Up to this point in my life, I’ve pretty much gotten everything I’ve wanted in life – or at least the things I’d hoped to have up to this point. I have an incredible wife, amazing family and friends, a fantastic

Introducing: The Location Rebel Daily Vlog

Why We’re Releasing Our First New Course in 4 Years

About 4 years ago I released a course called Hacking the High Life. The idea was to help individuals with online brands work with larger companies to create win/win scenarios that give exposure to the businesses, and cool experiences for the individual. The course sold well, but wasn’t really perceived in the way I’d hoped it would be (it’s still available as part of Location Rebel). At this time, I had a decision to make. Do I keep working on a new product every 6-12 months, or do I double down on what’s working the best and really focus on that? I chose the latter, and went all in on Location Rebel. And you know what? It was the best

Vlog 15: How to Quit Your Job

A while back I created a post called 13 Approaches to Quitting Your Job (Without Burning Bridges) and it has continued to be one of the most popular posts on the site. The reality is, quitting your job can be really difficult.

But assuming the time is right, quitting your job doesn’t have to be that hard. In this week’s vlog post we look at two different components of leaving your job: What you need to do in order to prepare to leave 5 actual strategies for broaching the idea with your boss If you’re not totally content

The Ultimate Cold Email Checklist

Every week I get dozens of terrible emails. The scary part is most people don’t have a clue how badly these poorly written emails are hurting them. For the last few months Liz and I have been working on a solution to this problem. We’ve been creating a program that shows you exactly how to write an email that not only gets opened, but gets a response – in both your personal and business lives. To put it simply, email has changed my life. Sending emails has opened me up to opportunities I simply never thought possible – but if you’re not writing them in the proper way you’re dead in the water.  Next week we’re releasing our latest course “The Rebel’s Guide to
