As a content creator you know the power you have to  reach people with your words.

However, it’s even better if you can turn your content into a thriving online business, so you earn a full-time living doing what you love.

I built the Laptop Lifestyle Academy for content creators who want consistent and stable income from an online business.

Whether you write blog posts and newsletters, podcast, publish videos on YouTube or are building a social media following – I will teach you a powerful skill:

How to use your content to sell products and services.

Specifically, inside the Academy I teach and support people who want to grow a  content-powered business, which you can run from your laptop while traveling the world.

You will learn how to sell your own digital products or services, leverage automation and small teams, and build real, stable, income streams.

Yaro Starak
We all want to live the laptop lifestyle, but before you can, you have to figure out solutions to problems like…
  • Which topic and business model are best for you? Should you sell services as a freelancer or build an agency, launch an online course or subscription site, or sell a coaching program (or perhaps combine several of these income streams?)
  • How do you handle all the technical challenges like building your website, landing pages, email newsletter, checkout forms, take payments, build subscription sites and track affiliate sales?
  • Which software tools and platforms do you need to get started and which providers are best for each stage of your business growth, so you don’t waste money paying subscription fees to software solutions you don’t use
  • What can you do to build your audience, create a following and ultimately convert some of those people into paying customers?
  • How do you deliver your products and services to customers seamlessly using automated tools, offer customer support by email, phone and live chat, and set all this up so it runs without you?
  • How do you break through all the distraction coming from YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Blogs, Reddit, Apps and everything else flying at people online, without getting overwhelmed, making sure that your message reaches the right people?
  • What content should you send to your email list, how frequently should you send messages, and how do you structure your ’email funnel’ so your products sell on autopilot?
  • How do you create a business where people come to you eager to buy because they love your content, so you never have to feel like a pushy sales person, trying to ‘trick’ people into buying from you?
  • When should you start building a team around you, who should you hire first, what jobs should they do for you, and how do you locate the best people so you don’t waste your time with time wasters?
  • How do you budget, track incoming cash and outgoing expenses, pay contractors, set up a tax efficient structure and find the best accountants and specialists to help you use your money wisely?
  • What systems do you have to put in place so your business runs without you, so you can travel, spend time with your family, learn a language or musical instrument, knowing that your income source is secure and stable?
How do you go from $0 to $1,000/month,
from $2,000 to $20,000/month,
or whatever the NEXT LEVEL
is for you?
If you attempt to do all this alone, you will fail.
You’re not meant to do all things by yourself — it’s almost impossible because you need so many diverse skills.
Even just educating yourself about all these things could take a lifetime, let alone putting them into practice.

This is why you must surround yourself with other like-minded people, people who know how to do things you don’t, and can guide you through the process in the fastest way possible.

It’s the power of the ‘mastermind’ that is created when groups of people work together to share knowledge and help each other that creates truly successful businesses.

However for you to have that advantage, you must connect with others — you must join a group of similar individuals, seek out mentors and coaches, and leverage the knowledge and insight of other people who have done what you want to do.

Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Every mind needs friendly contact with other minds, for food of expansion and growth.


You’re Not The First Person
To Struggle
The sense of feeling ‘alone’ while growing an online business is very common 
When you choose to become an entrepreneur you’re immediately part of a minority.

Chances are when you head to the local bar or pub or meet new people at a weekend BBQ, you’re going to be the only person excited to talk about business (unless you live in San Francisco of course!).

Most people have steady day jobs, live pay-check-to-pay-check, save money for an annual holiday and divide their lives between the five days of work, and the two days of freedom they enjoy on weekends.

It’s not surprising that when you first start your own online business you might be hesitant to tell your friends and family about it. 
They probably won’t understand what you are trying to do, and thus think you’re making a big mistake wasting your time and money.

Deep down they’re also afraid you might succeed, which means you will leave them trapped in their working class life forever, while you ride your business success to freedoms they only dream about.

Unfortunately when you have no support group and most people are telling you that you’re making a mistake, when you face doubt about your business — and that happens frequently at the start when growth is slow – you have no one to turn to.
You begin to think your friends are right, which makes you feel even worse, like you’re an idiot to dream you could figure out how to make a business work.

This unfortunately is where most entrepreneurial dreams die.

Once you hit one or two roadblocks, without support and advice, it’s game over.

Back to the job. Back to the grind. You’re trapped for life.

Let me state a fact…

This scenario is something we all face. I have lost track of the number of times I’ve thought about giving up, especially during the early years.

When you accept that these feelings and challenges are part of the process, you give yourself the freedom to experience these things, but not let them control you.

The next step is to figure out the answer to this question:

If every entrepreneur goes through some variation of these painful experiences, why do only a small handful
persist long enough to enjoy real success?
You’re not the first person to struggle. You’re not the first person to feel alone, or to consider giving up, or to deal with all the negative voices inside your head telling you you’re a failure.

There is hope. There is a real possibility that you can make money from your own online business.

Your first dollar of income is not far away, which is just around the corner from your first $1,000 month.  From there it’s simply a case of doing more of what already works until you have a stable $100,000+ a year business.

People have done this before, and they will again. You can too.

Believing in the possibility is step one. I don’t think you would read this far if you didn’t have some belief already.

What you need next are fortifications.

You need defences. You need a wall of support that holds you up when you feel like backing down.

Do you know what these things are?

Other people.

Pat, Hal, Chris and Yaro
…Your support network is made up of other entrepreneurs on the same path as you. People who know things you don’t and can guide you. People who can become your friends, members of your mastermind, and people who are mentors and leaders to support your cause
These people are in the minority too, but it’s your minority.

This is your entrepreneurial family, your support group, your friendship circle and where you feel at home.

It’s safe to ask the questions you think about all day long in this group, because they also have similar questions and have dealt with the same problems before.

This is the secret behind all the big business success stories, and even the smaller every day successes.

The answer is to surround yourself with a support group of like-minded individuals and mentors, so you’re never alone and you always have the best advice possible.
You need to surround yourself with good, positive entrepreneurs, who are there because they have the same dreams and aspirations as you do.
Are You A Special Kind Of
When I became a teacher of how to start an online business I used a simple phrase to describe the kind of business I love the most.

It’s called the ‘Laptop Lifestyle’

A Laptop Lifestyle business is not a startup.

It’s not about creating something that will consume you, suck all your time and energy, and turn you into a mindless worker trying to keep your investors happy.

A Laptop Lifestyle business is about creating something that
supports the freedoms you want in your life.

A Laptop Lifestyle business gives you the freedom to
stay home and grow your business so you can be around
your kids and partner whenever you want to be.
Another freedom, one I am particularly fond of, is the opportunity to travel anywhere in the world, and still make money from your business.

There is also the freedom to have time to learn a new language, or to play an instrument or to live by the beach and surf every morning.

Maybe you want to spend your days reading books, watching your favourite tv series, cooking at home, and putting in a few hours into your business.

Perhaps you would like to take an entire month or two off and do no work at all, confident in the knowledge that you’re still making money because your business is still delivering sales online.

Maybe you dream of paying off all your loans, having no mortgage on your house, so you can truly feel what it is like to be debt free.

Or perhaps you’d like to volunteer for a not for profit, or your church, or travel to India to attend an ashram.

Then there are the moments in life when you suddenly need freedom when you least expect it, like when a loved one falls ill and you have to look after them, just as I experienced with my mother in 2011 to 2013.

These kinds of freedoms are not guaranteed in life, especially when you depend on a job for survival.

Even some entrepreneurs who start businesses don’t have these freedoms.

If your business will collapse overnight without you, or the money will dry up if you can’t do a certain number of billable hours as a freelancer, or you have a huge team that depend on you for every decision, you’re not free.
What is your laptop lifestyle business
The challenge with starting a Laptop Lifestyle business is the lack specific advice on this type of entrepreneurship.
There’s an incredible amount of information out there on
how to start an online business and entrepreneurship in general,
but most focus on growth at the expense of freedom.
Growth is good, but if your time disappears as you get more staff and more things demand your attention, life for you may not be good.

Who wants to devote five to ten years of your life working your ass off with no freedom only to finally taste freedom AFTER you sell your business and you are burnt out?

This is why I decided to create something especially for people who want to start a Laptop Lifestyle business, or turn their current business into one.

I wanted to create a community that provides the education, group support and mentorship you need.

If your focus is freedom and you want to build a business that changes your life now, not in ten years when you sell your business, then this is for you.

I’d like to introduce you to a community called The Laptop Lifestyle, and we’re accepting new members now.
Whether you sell services as a coach or freelancer, you want to sell physical products, or digital products like ebooks, online courses or a membership site, the Laptop Lifestyle Academy is the support network you need.

What matters most, is that you focus on freedom. That is the shared ethos of the Laptop Lifestyle Academy…

What Members Are Saying…

My First $10,000 Month!

I am beyond amazed and so deeply thankful to be able to say this.  

My month of September has been absolutely incredible in terms of providing consultations. I literally have had a $10,000+ month.

Yes, yes… you saw that right.  Over $10,000 in one month.

I am shocked.  Completely shocked… 

… And so incredibly grateful to Yaro and the Laptop Lifestyle Academy.”



Members Who Truly Care About Your Success

“For me, the standout aspect of the Academy is the amount of group members who truly care about your success.

They bring great insights and advice, but they’re also like your own personal cheerleading squad! It really is such a great vibe.”

Dan Netting


I Finally Launched My Website

“I bought Blog Mastermind 2.0 and wondered if I would benefit from the Academy, since I already had tons of resources from my Blog Mastermind 2.0 membership. The answer is YES! 

I now have a group of fellow entrepreneurs to share my success with, to give me feedback on my website, products, and priorities, and support me every step of the way. 

With help from Academy members, I put together and launched my website.

The Laptop Lifestyle Academy has been every bit as valuable for me as Blog Mastermind 2.0, and that’s saying a LOT!”

Tien Chiu


Personal Feedback From Yaro

“I’ve worked with a lot of business teachers and been a member of a lot of business related communities. I like the Academy for a lot of reasons, but most of all I loved my recent Hot Seat

This was an opportunity to get specific, personal feedback from Yaro about my business operations, while helping the rest of the community via sharing my experience live.

It helped give focus and power to my next steps – and the support of the community is helping me execute in a way I’ve never been able to execute before.  Awesome!”

Who Is

Hopefully you already know me from my blog, podcast, email newsletter, reports, webinars and videos, facebook, twitter, instagram or we’ve met in person at an event.

Just in case you are concerned about my qualifications to help you with your Laptop Lifestyle business, here’s a little about me…

I started my own blog in 2005 and my email list in 2006. I published the Blog Profits Blueprint in 2007 and it has since been downloaded over 200,000 times.

I am one of the very first people to teach a formal course on how to launch your online business using the power of blogging and email marketing, called Blog Mastermind.
I’m also one of the longest serving coaches in this industry, with almost a decade spent dedicated to helping people build Laptop Lifestyle businesses.

I’ve personally sold over two million dollars worth of my own products using just my online platform, and have helped thousands of other people make millions of dollars from their online businesses.

I created the Entrepreneurs-Journey Podcast, which has over a million episode downloads .

For a number of years I bought and sold websites as an investment strategy (like real estate flipping), and sold my online editing business for over $100,000.

I’ve been featured as an expert in publications like Forbes, Entrepreneur Magazine, The Age, as well as countless other top blogs and podcasts like Problogger, Smart Passive Income, Flying Solo, Entrepreneur On Fire, and Eventual Millionaire.

I’ve also been a featured speaker at events including The Hive, Pat Flynn and Chris Ducker’s workshop, twice at the Problogger Conference and many events around the world. I was a winner of the ’30 under 30′ Anthill Award (back in 2008), and appeared in magazines like Virgin Australia and Internet Marketing Magazine.

I was invited to share advice on live television in Australia in an interview for the Sky News Business channel, and was a featured writer for a column in the ‘Your Money’ section of Huffington Post.

Have you noticed lately how many paid membership sites and coaching programs are basically charging you money just for a private Facebook group?

I don’t know about you, but Facebook is busy enough — and full of distractions you don’t need when it’s time to focus on your business.

The Laptop Lifestyle Academy really is an Academy. We customized a platform from the ground up to focus on community, training and coaching.

There are no distractions here. No cat pictures, no creepy stalkers, nothing that will take you away from what you really need – progress with your business.

Quit your job for real
If you’re still working for someone else — and you hate it — learning how to create a Laptop Lifestyle business is the single most important education you can get.

It’s the only way you will ever be able to QUIT YOUR JOB FOR GOOD.

Don’t spend money on courses, degrees or certificates that are designed to keep you employed longer!

Instead, for a fraction of the cost of most courses or degrees, learn the skills and get the support you need to finally quit your job.

Do you live your life dreaming about the two weeks a year you get time off from your job to travel?

Then when the two weeks finally arrive, you’re so exhausted you end up sleeping in a hotel and recover just in time to go back to work!

Sounds like a nightmare to me.

The Laptop Lifestyle is about travel. You’re building a business that is designed from the ground up for freedom and portability.

Take your laptop with you, live wherever you want to, for as long as you want to — you never have to be anywhere on someone else’s time.
Stop asking for permission to do what you really want to. 

Create a life designed to support what you really want to do, not take you away from it.

What The Experts Are Saying…

Yaro Rocks! – What More Can I say?

“I wish there was something like this around when I first started out in making money from Blogs.

I’ve been watching Yaro’s Blogging profile and expertise grow and have had the pleasure to meet and work with him on a number of occasions.

Yaro knows what he’s talking about and has built his Blog into an authority on the topics that he writes about. Bloggers can learn a lot from him!”

Darren Rowse – ProBlogger.net

Darren Rowse

Yaro Has Made A Huge Impact On My Life And In My Business 

“Before I got into blogging and online entrepreneurship, it was Yaro and a handful of others who inspired me to go down this path, not only because of the incredible content he provided, but because of the kind of person I could tell he was.”

Pat Flynn

You Can Get Out Of Your Day Job

“When I first collaborated with Yaro Starak, he struck me as someone who would make it. But at the time, Yaro was only making about $1,000 a month from his online marketing efforts after a year of hard work.

He seemed resolved to take things to the next level, but I could tell he was a bit frustrated. What a difference a couple of years makes! Now, Yaro makes a good living from Blogging, working part-time.

He’s not promising to make you a dot-com millionaire, but you can get out of your day job. That’s the first step.”

Brian Clark – copyblogger.com

Brian Clark

Your Life Will Never Be The Same

“If you are looking for an alternative to the traditional ‘career’ path then Yaro has the answers.

Yaro Starak is a supreme blogger, lifestyle engineer and full of integrity. Yaro’s insights were a key influence for my own journey from being stuck behind a desk in corporate hell to funding a rich and full lifestyle from the Internet.

When you implement the ideas Yaro mentions your life will never be the same.”

Less Than A Coffee A Day

Do you currently pay for any of these?…

  • The gym membership you never use?
  • That chocolate bar, or packet of chips, or muffin a day?
  • Some kind of online software that you never use?
  • One dinner at a nice restaurant per month?
  • Your phone or cable bill?
  • Drinks on a Friday night with co-workers?

Membership into the Laptop Lifestyle Academy
will cost less than each of these things a month, yet could
change your life in such an amazing way.

This Is Not For Everybody…

One last caveat… I don’t want you to join the Laptop Lifestyle if you’re expecting miracles or instant riches.

I also don’t want you in the Academy if you are not a hard worker and committed to improving your life by creating an amazing business.

You shouldn’t join if you are struggling to pay for food and rent and you have massive credit card debt. The cost of membership should be something you can comfortably afford.

Don’t join if all you care about is making money. If you are thinking in your head “I wonder how long it will take me to make $X,XXX dollars” the Academy is not the right place for you.

You should be thinking about how you can help other people, how you can use the internet to share your ideas and messages, and how the Academy can help you to learn how to do that.

I only want hard working, motivated, positive people in the Academy, who want to contribute positively to other people’s growth as well.

And one more thing — If you’re the kind of person who joins a community like this and then never uses it, don’t sign up. You’re wasting your money, and that just doesn’t make sense.

If you’re excited, motivated, positive, willing to learn no matter how much of a beginner you are, then we’d love for you to become part of our Laptop Lifestyle family.

How Will You Feel
12 Months From Now?

Let me ask you a question
How much closer to having a successful online business are you today compared to 12 months ago?
If you’re not making big steps forward, if you haven’t made a single dollar online, and you feel like you’ve been working hard for many months with nothing to show for it, then something has to change.

Your result won’t suddenly change if you keep doing what is not working.

I don’t want you to look back 12 months from now and realize you yet again wasted time and money with little to show for it.

If things are moving slow for you, as they were for me for so many years when I first started, understand there is a better path.

You need coaching, you need mentors, you need to surround yourself with people like you so you can see what they are working on and what is working for them.

Big change can only occur when you make the leap and do things differently.

Today I want you to make the decision to join the Laptop Lifestyle Academy, so in 12 months time you can look back and see it was the smartest decision you ever made.

Otherwise you might find yourself in exactly the same position as you are in right now next month, next year and beyond.

All It Takes Is One Good Idea

Membership into the Academy will cost you less than a cup of coffee  per day, yet your return on investment could be life changing…

I’m absolutely confident you will easily recoup your membership fee in value.

Imagine if one idea or connection in the Academy leads to just one sale of your online course or book or a new client? (Or how about one per month! — it won’t take much to make a huge return on investment.)

What if a traffic tactic you learn from the Academy leads to 300 new people joining your email list this month, and then again the next month, or a resource suggestion helps you save $1,000 in software fees you no longer need…

…Or an idea leads you to create a new income stream that drops $1,000 a month into your bank account because you finally get a product out the door, or launch your own subscription site, or land a new client on retainer, all because you made the decision today to join the Academy.

The potential is limitless, and the decision is easy.

The Laptop Lifestyle Academy will change your life if you fully commit, and it will cost you the same amount of money you probably spend going to the movies each month, or buying candy or chocolate each month (switch to a healthy habit for your business instead!).

I look forward to learning more about your Laptop Lifestyle business.

I’ll see you on the inside,

Laptop Lifestyle Academy

P.S. If you’d like to join the Academy with a friend or your business partner, or your son or daughter, or husband or wife, I don’t mind if you share the one membership account (and split the cost).

As long as you intend to work on a project together, or you are supporting their project, that’s cool with me!

The Academy is also a great training resource for people in your company. You are welcome to give Academy membership to your staff or an intern, who can then implement what they learn for you, helping to grow your business.

It also makes for a great gift for any person you know who has expressed interest in starting an online business.

Access To Experts

I have been using the Laptop Lifestyle Academy for almost a year. It’s the most comprehensive, informative and supportive forum I’ve struck.

The teaching resources in the Academy are unsurpassed and it’s very clear that Yaro’s aim is to get every one of us to build a blog that makes bucket loads of money quickly and expertly.

I wouldn’t be without the expert mentoring, great resources and a super friendly and supportive group of people from all over the world!

I Would Have Given Up By Now…

“If it were not for this community, I am honestly pretty sure I would have just thrown in the towel, which is not what I want. Thank you once again for your thoughtful response!

From my heart to yours.”

A Plan To Grow My Coaching Business

“Hey Yaro! Thanks so much for our coaching session. I now have a strategy and a plan on building my blog, newsletter and free offer to create my platform online.

What helped me the most was that you were able to extract what my focus should be and pull out of me what I want to ultimately be known for

I now can see how to grow my coaching business beyond doing one-on-one coaching. I have a clear plan to execute just that! Thanks again!”

First Sale In Less Than 24 Hours

“I was so pleased with the advice you gave me during the last webinar. You answered my question about how to price my first product once the email course was ending. You suggested that I create a book based on my blog posts.

Since I’ve been blogging since 2011, it wasn’t difficult to find 62 pages of my best content. And since I’m a writer, I was able to fairly easily put the book together and with Canva create a book cover.

I finalized the book, and in less than 24 hours I had my first sale.

Now Making $20K A Month

“So I thought I’d introduce myself – I’m Zac, a 26 year old guy from Melbourne, Australia who had his entire life turned upside down when he first found entrepreneurs-journey.com and read Yaro’s Blog Profits Blueprint back in 2010.

Looking back, the reason this eBook turned my life upside down wasn’t because of the information and strategies shared within (although they were excellent). It was the passion and love for the Laptop Lifestyle which seeped from each paragraph. Yaro so eloquently described how this world was possible, and it instilled in me a belief that I could turn my dream into a reality.

From that point I partnered with my mother and we built a business around something very dear to our hearts, helping women and men recover from abusive and painful relationships.

This was dear to our hearts because I witnessed my mother go through 5 years of an abusive marriage while I was growing up.

It was by far the most horrible time in our lives, but we turned that breakdown into our biggest breakthrough, because we now have helped thousands of people from over 50 countries who experienced the same hardship.

I’d love to give back to the community that has been so great to me, so if anyone has any questions about this journey I’d be happy to answer them.

Yaro Starak once again, thank you for changing my life, my family’s life and indirectly thousands of people around the world by allowing me to believe that this was possible.”
