Learn how I was able to make over $1,000 each month online while studying full-time, and how you can, too! If you’re like most people, chances are you’re: stressed, tired, and overworked (be honest: aren’t you?).

Like most people, you likely clock in at 9 am and leave at 5 pm, then crash on the couch after work. In other words, you waste half your time awake making money for someone else. There’s a better way to live: You can become a Laptop Entrepreneur!

Stop Slaving, Start Earning

What does working a 9 to 5 mean? It means sacrificing 8 hours of your day — approximately 50% of your waking hours — at work. 8 hours each and every day, 40 hours a week, that you’ll never get back.

Don’t forget: that excludes your commute, shower, and the time it takes to get ready. So, realistically, you spend even more than half your day working or thinking about work.

And for what? The harder you work at your job — whether it’s selling clothes as a retail associate, or writing code for a software company — you’ll never reap the harvest of your efforts. Sure, you may get a small commission, and you may get a raise in salary. But, that’s nothing compared to what your higher-ups are making. It’s time to start making money for YOU — not the CEO of the company you work for.

Working Online Means Location Independence
The best thing about being a Laptop Entrepreneur is that it can be done from anywhere. That means you can kiss your 30-minute commute goodbye along with your worries about being late to work! Now, when you commit to living as a Laptop Entrepreneur, you will finally have flexibility, less stress, and more peace of mind (which we all need).

But don’t be fooled. Unlike your favorite influencers on Instagram, I’m not going to promise you that it’s going to be easy and anyone can become a Digital Nomad. That’s not true. You must put in the hard work.

Thankfully, this book saves you time since I’ve already experienced all 4 Laptop Entrepreneur Frameworks and have detailed them for you. You can hit the ground running with an action plan!

Being a Laptop Entrepreneur means fitting your schedule to your life — and not the other way around. Being a worker means finding a way to fit your life in between the gaps in your work schedule. That’s the difference.

I don’t think it takes much elaboration. Any sane person would prefer a life that’s less stressful, allowing for more free time, than a life that’s just work, work, work.

The Four Laptop Entrepreneur Frameworks

I’ll cover in-depth how becoming a Laptop Entrepreneur can save you thousands each year and why traveling strategically, or living in a low cost of the living country will save you money.

Plus, I’ll give your real, actionable steps to become a Digital Nomad from my first-hand experiences.

Here are the four Laptop Entrepreneur frameworks:

  1. Negotiating a Remote Contract
  2. Freelancing with a Platform like Fiverr or Upwork
  3. Freelancing Independently (read about my challenging experiences freelancing while being a full-time student in Italy here)
  4. Running Your Own Virtual Business (selling products and services that can be digital or physical)
