Hey there Awesome Action Taker!
Thank you so much for stopping by my site.
If you’re looking for useful, actionable tips & step by step how to guides on building a business you can run from anywhere in the world, whether that be your kitchen table or a beach in Fiji, then you’ve come to the right place! :)
As I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, my name is Jo Barnes.
I’m a 40 something (we’ll leave it there), British born Mum, partner & globe trotting entrepreneur with a mission to make the world a better place via entrepreneurialism, ownership, moving beyond our comfort zones & creating truly social businesses & lives that help us, our community and the greater good.
Back in 2010, fed up with the weather in the UK and suffering at the hands of the recent market downturn, myself & my partner made a decision to pack up ‘normal’ life and start traveling the world.
In just one week we sold everything we owned – furniture, books, DVD’s, toys etc., for the princely sum of £900 (that’s what you get for a quick sale), put our house up for rent and headed to Cyprus to house sit for a friend.
My daughter was 4.
It was the best decision I ever made and as I write this in 2018, we’re currently living in Phuket, Thailand and over the last 8 years have traveled and lived in;
Cyprus, Spain, France, Finland, Thailand, Australia, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia, Myanmar, USA
What makes this particularly exciting is that wherever we lay our laptop, that’s our home!
As long as we have a decent internet connection we are good to go.
I keep saying we by the way because I’m traveling of course with my family, my partner (who also works with me) and my daughter.
My daughter is now 11, attends an International school here in Phuket and has social skills I could only dream of at her age!
Action Takers Make It Happen!
As my business has grown over the years, I have come to realise that I love teaching & inspiring others to take action.
The single biggest thing that holds us back from achieving the life we dream of, is ourselves.
All the tools, knowledge, experience and training is out there for the taking. Easier than ever to obtain at a click of a button.
What is lacking is Action Taking!
All the ideas, experience and enthusiasm in the world aren’t worth a jot unless you’re prepared to step beyond your comfort zone and take the action necessary to make things happen!
So that’s where I come in.
My mission in life is to work with passionate budding entrepreneurs who want to create a life of opportunity and freedom and also to add value & give back in some way.
Over my years of traveling I have seen first hand the poverty, corruption and discrimination that goes on in neighbouring communities & countries. These days with the pay gap widening dramatically and many of the middle & working classes falling below the poverty line in our own countries it’s sadly even closer to home.
Therefore as creative, action taking, fearless, entrepreneurs it is our duty to build businesses that not only enrich our lives & the lives of our family but which help our communities & the greater good.
As a consummate traveler, and as someone who runs her entire business online, I want to demonstrate and show YOU how to work and play from anywhere in the world!
Since starting my online adventure back in 2010 I have generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue every year via my online business education courses and in 2015 alongside my partner built a million dollar ecommerce business.
I want to give you the knowledge and the tools to do the same, but most importantly I want to help YOU find the self belief and the inner strength to get out there and Make Your Goals & Dreams Happen!
You CAN build a business, you CAN make a difference to your life and the lives of others and you CAN do it from wherever you lay your macbook (or PC!)

When I first started traveling ‘make money online’ was all the rage. It took people a long time to realise that the internet is simply a tool to help you build your business and reach a global audience.
Here are 6 ways to build a business you can run almost entirely online without a huge team, offices, overheads etc.
However please note nothing I publish services the ‘get rich quick or push button mentality’. Building any business, small or big takes an enormous amount of hard work, dedication, sacrifice, facing fears and moving beyond your comfort zone.

Years ago I saw Brian Tracy live on stage at a seminar. The man lit me up along with 400 other people in the room.
As I looked around I realised there was nothing more rewarding in life than watching a light bulb fire up in someone’s eyes. To watch their body become animated and to hear the excitement in their voice as they realise they CAN!
At that moment I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I knew I wanted to elicit that same fire in people around me. To be the catalyst for change and to help talented and passionate entrepreneurs do more, be more and make a difference with their own business ideas.
I knew I wanted to connect, work with, motivate, brainstorm & mastermind, with both new & experienced business owners. I knew I wanted to investigate & explore new & exciting ways of doing things. I knew I wanted to break the mould of what’s gone before and to be honest six years in, I’m just at the beginning of my journey!
