How to Start a Small Business at Home…or Anywhere

Ready to escape the 9 to 5 life? Want to do something you love from anywhere in the world?

Seems too good to be true? Well then tune into some REAL TALK…

Today I am talking with one of my all-star coaching clients, Lori Konkler. Lori is the powerhouse Business Success Coach behind the Xennial Traveler Company.

Back in 2016, Lori ditched her 9 to 5 corporate job as a Director of Sales & Marketing. She wanted to explore a new life of freedom being a digital nomad–working on HER time, pace, and terms anywhere in the world.

Her elite coaching program helps entrepreneurs all over the globe successfully do exactly what she did–quickly launch, scale, and optimize a remote business that makes $10K+ a month.

Get expert tips and advice about how to stop working 9 to 5 and enjoy the freedom and adventure of being a digital nomad.

Lori and I talked about:

  • Making the big leap from living in Wisconsin to starting a remote business based in The Virgin Islands.
  • The mistakes she made while starting her remote business…and how you can avoid them.
  • When and how to take on additional jobs/part time gigs to supplement your income for added security..
  • Creating your MVP–no, not the most valuable player–to get cash flow in the door.

Although there were bumps along the journey, Lori fully believes the key to happiness is to “stop living life on other people’s terms and start living life in your happy place.”

She’s living proof. When she isn’t coaching, Lori spends time with her husband, Ben, exploring exciting places like The Virgin Islands, New Zealand, and Mexico.

Excited about what Lori has to say? Be on the lookout for her book, Cashflow Blueprint : How to Accelerate Your Remote Business to $10K Per Month, that comes out later this month.
