– Digital nomads who want to go bigger
– Freelancers who want to be solopreneurs

Launch30 is for schemers, dreamers, inventors and infopreneurs who want to launch an online business and change their lives.

So, if you’re not afraid of making big moves and you’re willing to get on a plane to prove it, keep reading.
What’s an infopreneur?
And could you be one?
Infopreneurs are usually solo operators who make money from their experience or expertise. There are no products involved. Instead, they monetize their passion and sell themselves so they can work from anywhere in the world.
If you’re sick of your job, then consider going out alone with high-quality personalized service. Customers these days want to avoid the middleman. They are hungry for fast turnarounds and unique perspectives. Could this be you?
Some ways infopreneurs make money:
– Personal and business coaching
– Teaching online courses
– Field-specific consulting work
– Creatives (Graphic Design/Copywriting)
– Tech support (Coding, Programming, Web Design)
– Lifestyle bloggers and influencers

So what does it cost
Each Launch30 participant is expected to invest USD 10,000 to launch their business.
This fee covers almost everything and represents ridiculous value when compared to the actual and the hidden costs of launching an online business by yourself.
You’ll have accommodation, a full support team and a soft landing into what could be the most exciting and profitable time of your life. Not only will you do it fast, but you’ll also do it well.
Launch 30 is a turnkey solution to take you from being an unhappy employee to living a life of freedom, travel and self-employment.
But be warned. This is not an airy-fairy course for those who aren’t sure. It’s a clear choice to stop second-guessing yourself and start an online business just 30 days after you arrive on the island of Bali.
You can quite literally quit your job, buy a plane ticket and make Launch30 the first stop on your world trip.
Take the leap and launch
Now’s the time to stop second-guessing yourself and make a commitment to the future life you want. Launch30 is only open to people who are as serious about starting their online business as we are about making it happen.Apply now
