Living The Laptop Lifestyle: How to Start & Grow a Profitable Online Business So You Can Quit Your Job
People often ask what is the best way to make money online? What is the
There are many ways to make money online. Some are legitimate, some are illegal and some are just out right scams.
If you've been around the internet long enough, you've probably come across them all.
Yet you still dream of making money online and finding a legitimate company to help you.
Well let me do just that.
Because to run a successfull online business, you need the right training.
You also need the right mentor.
Because there are many people pretending to be successful "gurus” who say they can make you rich.
And before you know it you've paid them money to buy their course, and you end up no better off then you are right now (except poorer because of the money you spent).
That's how the so-called "gurus" get rich.
They're easy to spot because they say “buy my system and all you have to do is push a button and you'll become rich overnight."
So you quickly learn that as a novice, you can get burned very easily.
Sadly, this can cause you to put up your defence metchanisms to avoid being scammed.
And I don't blame you.
The problem is though, that by doing this, you won't be able to see the real opportunities that come along.

Who am I?
My name is Ruth Barringham and I've been Living the Laptop Lifestyle for years. Every day I work from home; just me and my Mac Book Pro computer.
I stay at home with my dog by my side and sit and work anywhere there is a cool breeze.
My laptop lifestyle gives me time to do other things too.
I'm a frugal person and I enjoy growing my own food, sitting by my pool and reading, going for walks with my dog and spending time with my family.
I feel like I've retired already because I make money from what I love doing.
This is REAL Freedom.
And in LIving the Laptop Lifestyle, I reveal to you exactly how I do it so that you can live the Laptop Lifestyle too.
So what exactly is the laptop lifestyle?
Let’s first look at what the laptop lifestyle isn’t:
The Laptop Lifestyle is NOT about working for other people.
Living the Laptop Lifestyle is a guide to making good money as a home-based entrepreneur, from someone who really has ‘been there, done that, got the tee-shirt’.
Ruth Barringham is a successful online writer/publisher, and in this guide she reveals the secrets that have helped her escape the rat race and ‘live the dream’ in her luxurious family home in Australia.
Living the Laptop Lifestyle covers a range of business models, including e-book writing and publishing, website creation, affiliate marketing, selling physical and digital products online, and more. Much of this was familiar territory for me, but what lights it up is the honest and personal way Ruth shares her experiences - both good and bad!
It’s one of the most entertaining ‘make money online’ books I’ve read, yet also one of the most informative.
If you want to learn to be a successful online entrepreneur - and especially if you want to do this by applying your writing skills - this guide will inspire you. It also includes lots of practical advice and resources, all based on Ruth’s own experiences.
You won’t have to work for anyone else - it’s just you and your laptop computer, making money from wherever you happen to be.
With a laptop lifestyle you WILL make a difference in the world. And all you're going to need is a laptop computer and access to the internet (sometimes).
The laptop lifestyle is a huge life change. It’s a way to ‘retire’ now and spend more time doing the things you want to do.
There are already thousands of people already living this way.
The laptop lifestyle lets you turn a hobby into a full-time income. You can start part-time, with no need to quit your job straight away, so there's no fear about making the transition from full-time employee to part-time online entrepreneur.
LIving the Laptop LIfesyle is a complete system in one huge ebook that is going to show you the exact steps you need to take to turn a subject you're interested in or even a hobby that you like to do in your spare time, into a profitable online business.
And you don't even have to know how or where to start because Living the Laptop LIfestyle will reveal everything you need to know so you can choose a niche, set up your own website (no technical knowledge required), and make money every week/month/year.
You're also going to discover how you can grow your business as much and as often as you want.
This is a huge course aimed at the complete novice to making money online AND it's also priceless to anyone who is already making some money online but doesn't know how to turn it into a profitable business.
Just look at the following extract to see how easy it is to take something you're interested in and build an online business around it:
(This is an extract from Chapter 5)
In this chapter you are actually going to get down to work and decide what your new online business is going to be all about. Don’t skip this chapter. Even if you think you know what you want to do, read through all the information here because you might find something else that gives you a “Hell Yeah!’ reaction. It might be something you never even considered before, or maybe you did consider it but couldn’t see how you could build a business from it.
I used to be the same way. I have lots of things I like to talk about and things I like to do but I couldn’t see a way of making any money out of them.
But it seems that you can make money online from just about anything. I say ‘just about’ because there might be something that you can’t make money from, but if there is, I haven’t come across it. And please don’t try and create an online business around something illegal or offensive.
As long as you have something that you like to do or a subject that you know a lot about or even just something that interests you, you can build an online business around it.
All you have to do to begin, is to build a website about it.
For instance, I was once pondering this exact fact about is it possible to make money from anything online, even if it’s just a hobby?
So I thought about things I like to do and whether I could build a profitable business from them, and I tried to think about the least interesting thing I like to do, and by least interesting I mean it wouldn’t be very interesting to many other people.
And I thought about knitting. I’ve been a knitter for most of my life. I still own my first pair of plastic pink knitting needles from when I was 7 years old and my Dad first taught me to knit and I set about knitting the shortest (I only had one ball of wool) and holiest (I kept dropping stitches) scarf the world has ever seen. But boy was I proud of it.
So would it be possible to make money online from knitting?
I googled knitting and found that there were thousands of different websites all devoted to the subject of knitting. Some were information sites selling knitting books and patterns, and some were information sites with instructions for beginners. There were websites selling knitting supplies from balls of wool to huge knitting machines, and others were websites where people were selling handmade items they’d knitted. I even found a websites where you can commission someone to knit items for you.
It seems that the craft of knitting is flourishing online and doing very well. There are even websites devoted to selling knitted items from people from all over the world, a kind of eBay for knitters. I had no idea that knitting was so popular. I thought it was all about me, sitting at home watching movies and doing my knitting. But apparently it’s not. It’s a whole online world of buying selling and making money.
So if I wanted to make a website all about knitting, I could sell what I knit, sell a certain kind of knitted product (jumpers, toys, tea cozies, wash cloths, etc), sell knitting related products, sell advertising space for other knitters/knitting companies, sell my services as a professional knitter, write about knitting, sell knitting patterns or just blog about my knitting. I could also do all these things.
There may be other ways to make money from knitting but I don’t know of any off hand. But even with just what I already discovered, it seems there are many ways to make money from a knitting website. In fact looking at the list above, it looks as if a knitting website could be huge. It could end up as hundreds of pages.
And don’t worry about how you’d sell knitting related products or sell advertising. It can all be done automatically without you having to store or ship anything. We’ll discuss that later too.
All you have to do right now is think about what it is that you’d like to set up a website about. You don’t have to think of how you’re going to make money. You just have to choose your subject (niche). And your niche can be narrow. It doesn’t have to be broad.
For example. You could set up a website about birds or you could narrow it to wild birds, or pet birds or parrots or even just budgerigars. The beauty of working online means your niche can be as broad or as narrow as you want.
You also need to think about what you want to say about your chosen subject. For instance, say you want to set up a website based on your religion. Are you going to be talking about religion in general? A belief in God? Are you going to try and recruit more members? Are you going to narrow it down to just the church where you pray? Are you going to talk about how it affects your life? Or are you going to sell religious products?
As another example, I have a website about writing at http://writeaholics.net. At first it was a website where I sold my services as a freelance writer. But I no longer do much freelance writing so now it’s a website devoted to teaching others how to become successful freelance writers. So although the niche of this website has stayed the same, the information it contains has changed completely.
I began my online business small with just one website and now I have 11 sites and I STILL only work part-time (18 hours a week). And because I love what I do it never feels like work.
People never believe that I can make money the way I do, so they never try it.
My neighbors think I don’t work at all - and they wouldn’t be far wrong.
My laptop lifestyle also means I can choose when I work.
I start early every day and finish early because that suits my creative mind best.
"I absolutely love your Laptop Lifestyle system. You speak with the authority of one who truly knows how to be successful online. As you say, with refreshing candor, true wealth is about having time as well as money - and you show everyone, whatever their skill level, how to achieve that dream using the Internet.
There's so much guru hype and nonsense out there about getting rich quick - most of it bare faced lies. But your system, your guidance and your big heart come as a real breath of fresh air.
I can't recommend your Laptop Lifestyle highly enough!"
Others choose to work in the evenings so that they can keep every day free to do what they want.
In the past I’ve read tons of ebooks about how to work from home. But most of them are either too technical for a newbie such as I was, or they talk about how to start up a huge online business that takes up far too much time and far too much money.
If you're looking for a "Get Rich Quick" scheme then Living The Laptop Lifestyle isn't for you.
There are already thousands of products on the market about how to set up websites and make tons of money by working every hour God sends or by quickly conning people out of their money or spending all of yours.
This type of online work has never appealed to me and it shouldn't appeal to you either.
Living the Laptop LIfestyle, on the other hand, is all about taking your time, starting an online business about a topic you're passionate about, and then growing your business till it's really profitable AND sustainable, which all the "Get Rich Quick" schemes aren't. They are just a one-shot grab at fast cash and they never last.
You can't keep up with an online business if you're always working or always looking for different ways to make a 'fast buck.' This is not the kind of life you want.
Living the Laptop Lifestyle is unlike any other system available because you’re about to learn:
And it really is so easy.
And...I'm also going to show you how you don't even need any money to start your own online business. It can all be done for free. There are thousands of people all over the world right now who are making money online and it didn't cost them anything to get started.
You can set up your own website and start running your own online business today - at no cost at all.
There are some systems advertised online that will promise you that you can set up an online business for free and make thousands $$$ a week. But what they don't tell you, is that after the free setup, you have to start paying out big dollars to keep your online business running.
But Living the Laptop Lifestyle isn't about that.
I won't tell you how much you'll earn because I don't know what you're online business will be about or what you're going to do to run it.
But what I can tell you is that YOU CAN set up your online business for free AND it won't cost you anything to keep it going. And I won't be trying to sell you anything afterwards.
You just keep updating your website and running your online business however you want. And you can do it all for free.
This isn't a secret.
Anyone can do it.
Thousands already are.
All you need is the know-how, which is what I am going to teach you.
And once you know how, you'll wonder why you didn't do it years ago.
