Did you see the Lego Movie? I know, I know. It came out a couple of years ago; I’m a bit behind the times. But in any case, it was a great film, and it was monstrously successful!

And why was it so successful? Because Lego took a product and turned it into a story. What a brilliant plan!

Stories are the backbone of any great brand. Stories make us loyal to one brand over another. Plato said, “Those who tell stories rule the world.” Smart man, that Plato.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about stories and how they can help you relate to and engage with your audience.

Do you ever feel like you’re just not good enough to do what you want to do? You feel like you’re not smart enough, talented enough, pretty enough, or anything else enough. It can feel debilitating! It can stop you in your tracks and make you give up on your dreams.

We all feel like this sometimes. We all have obstacles to overcome.

Richard Branson says, "surround yourself with people who complement your weaknesses and share your passions. Success will follow,"

On this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how to identify your weaknesses and find ways to plug the gaps so you can be as successful as possible!

Just a few days ago I was surfing through YouTube, when I came across ‘Steve Jobs 10 Rules for Success’

Check out - Evan Carmichael’s channel - Modeling the Masters (

The first rule was ‘Don’t Live a Limited Life’. What a great message.

It made me think about how ‘out of the box’ I have lived my life over the last 6 years and so todays episode is about my journey.

What I’m doing living in Phuket rather than the UK and how we’ve traveled the world as a family.

I tell you this story in the hope that it inspires you to look inside yourself and ask how you can start living your dreams right now!

I saw a great quote recently that said;

“The Goal is to Die With Memories, Not Dreams”

So watch todays episode and stop dreaming and start making memories!

What Is Living the Online Lifestyle?

My mission is to help action takers like you create an online lifestyle business you can run from anywhere in the world, whether that be your kitchen table or a beach in Fiji.

That in my eyes is living the online lifestyle. Having the freedom to work from anywhere!


It’s more than just working from anywhere, it’s having the freedom to travel, to experience places & cultures we haven’t experienced before, the freedom to spend more time with the ones we love.

It’s all about freedom!

In this weeks Episode, I’m asking you to join me on a virtual whistle stop tour of parts of South East Asia, China & Japan where I demonstrate to you the true power of ‘living the online lifestyle’!

There’s nothing more energy sucking that not really knowing where you want to go. Just wondering aimlessly through life with no real direction.

Lack of direction = lack of purpose = lack of motivation = stuck in a rut.

I know how it feels as I’ve been there a few times myself!

Thankfully it’s actually quite a simple thing to change with just a day out, a notepad and an unlimited imagination!

Once you know the direction you’re going with absolute clarity, momentum just seems to sweep you up and carry you energetically along!

Looking to reclaim your energy & motivation levels?

Watch todays episode to discover how to get absolute clarity on the direction of your business (and life).

Do you ever find yourself wondering where the day went? (and then guiltily acknowledging you spent too long on the Facebook newsfeed!)

Do you find that sometimes you’re really busy and have loads to do, but don’t really seem to get much done?

Prioritising the tasks that have the most impact on our businesses is tough. Especially when you’re a solopreneur and have to do everything yourself!

Watch todays Episode and find out how building a routine around essential tasks will have a massive effect on your productivity and the results of your business moving forward.

If you’re starting an online lifestyle business, you are probably drowning in technical data. You have to juggle a website, blog, social media platforms, email, landing pages, and the list just goes on! It’s overwhelming just thinking about it!

I learned early on that I was wasting hours and hours of valuable time trying to wade through all this technical stuff.

Thankfully, I found Neil! Neil manages all things technical in my business. I don’t know where I’d be without him.

On this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about the importance of outsourcing so you can find your very own Neil and start getting smarter about your time management.

Can you believe that I crossed paths with Mark Zuckerberg on the Great Wall of China!!!

Certainly one of the highlights of our 18 day tour across Asia.

I also flew back from Kuala Lumpur on the same plane as Goldie (you know the guy from a James Bond movie with all gold teeth.)

But apart from rubbing shoulders with celebs we had amazing experiences as we train, plane and automobiled ourselves across Bangkok, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo & Kuala Lumpur.

I picked up some travel tips along the way and thoughts about running a business while on the go and that’s what I’m sharing on this weeks Make it Happen Monday Episode.

How often do we stop ourselves from doing things because of how we feel, either about what we’re going to do or the potential outcome?

Perhaps it’s fear that stops us, or maybe we just don’t feel like doing it, or perhaps we’re procrastinating usually brought on by overwhelm or lack of direction.

Whatever it is, it’s your emotions stopping you.

Sometimes this is a good thing, as our minds are programmed to protect us from harm.

But sometimes that protection stops us from taking positive life changing actions that can help us achieve our goals.

Big T - Tony Robbins says - ‘Master Your Emotions, Master Your Life’.

In this weeks episode I’m exploring what you can do to ensure your emotions don’t stop you from doing what you know can and will change your life…

After all these years, Facebook is still my No 1 go to platform for traffic generation.

It’s certainly changed quite dramatically since I started using it back in 2010 and very unfortunately the organic reach we small business owners used to benefit tremendously from is now almost non existent, but….

They are still trying to help businesses get the best results and I’m a big fan of one of their latest editions - The Facebook Lead Ad!

Check out this week's episode to find out why FB is still super beneficial for your business, then watch my bonus video on how to create your first Facebook Lead Ad!

You will note the total absence of this person. If her business is so successful, why the fuck is she trawling this site for more suckers? Hmmm?

I am extremely insightful dear, so I can tell from what is written where someone stands. Learn to read what others write and absorb it and you too can do this. But you won't as you are what I call "a skimmer". Someone who only skims a post and jumps on words you want to find. Then make up the rest. You are part of a very large group of internet nobodies who has little clue about anything really.

It staggers me you do not follow why that person wrote that post. And you believe what she has claimed too. Gullible is as gullible dioes.

I have no interest at all in learning some trick techniques about winning friends and such crap. I have no interest in anything but what is written. After I've read that I simply respond to the words, rather than what you do. Which is search for something to dislike. That's the action of a fool.

Take your bullshit wild guesses and fuck off.

There’s no doubt about it, if you want to build an online lifestyle business that you can run from anywhere in the world, you need to build an email list.

It’s as simple as that.

Don’t listen to all the naysayers that say email marketing is on it’s way out.

Yes there are many different methods of communication these days, but email is still the largest and most common form.

Maybe in ten years it will have changed, who knows, but let’s focus on right now.

If you’re not building an email list, not only are you leaving money on the table, you’re also missing out on social shares, comments, blog visits, and engagement too.

Your email list are your fans, your advocates, your extended marketing arm. Treat them well and they’ll tell everyone about you.

Watch this weeks episode and learn how to start building your email list today even if you don’t have a specific ‘lead magnet’ to bribe visitors with yet…..

Last week I asked the question 'Are You Building a Community Around Your Brand'?

This week, we're looking at 'HOW to Build a Community Around Your Brand'.

I know this is the million dollar question, but it's actually much easier than you may think and I liken it to having a chat over a coffee with a friend!

Add to that consistent, focused, action and over time your targeted and highly engaged community will grow.

My MISSION is to help you create an online lifestyle business you can run from anywhere in the world!
Hi! My name is Jo Barnes. I am a Mother, a Sun Chaser, an Entrepreneur & an Online Marketing Addict.

I started my online business in 2010 and haven't looked back since. In the last 4 years as a family we have lived in Europe, Australia & South East Asia. We have also travelled extensively chasing the sun across the globe! 

This is all made possible because I run my entire business online, so as long as I have an internet connection I can work from anywhere in the world!

I LOVE what I do and I am experiencing daily the opportunities online marketing can bring, which is why it is my MISSION to show people how to increase their passive disposable income & achieve business & life freedom.

I want to give you the opportunity to make better choices because you have more money, more time and more passion for what you're doing than ever before!

My main focus is demonstrating how to increase leads and sales while systemising and automating your business using online marketing strategies & productivity hacks.

I’m also a great believer that good health equals improved results, so there’s a little bit of that thrown into the conversation also!

I can tell you this, living an 'internet lifestyle' is 100% possible for everyone and anyone who wants it and the good news is, you can do it ethically and with integrity and without hard selling. That's the beauty of todays inbound and social media marketing world we live in!

So if you love discovering new ways to fit more into your day, increase your income and get more out of life , be sure to circle my business page-

Also connect with me over on Facebook - and check out my blog -

In the meantime, if you want to learn more about our travels and the places we see and stay, then circle me here as I tend to use this profile to talk about and share my pics and experiences from all the different fab places we get to go because we can!
