About This Class

Know how to get your personal finances straight so that you're ready to start a business. 

The runway is the length of time you can survive without a job before you go broke. All the ideas on earning more and spending less in this book are designed to lengthen this period of time.

I asked Dan Andrews, co-host of the popular TropicalMBA podcast and co-founder of a private community for location-independent entrepreneurs called the Dynamite Circle, about his first steps to freedom. He replied: “fixing my budget and debts.” You have to get your finances straight in order to determine your runway. He went on to say: “the first step to entrepreneurship is treating your personal finances like a business.”

The runway, or “making the jump,” may or may not be a useful analogy according to your situation.

Some people are unable to leave their home and need to save up considerable amounts before they can leave their job. Others will be able to sell everything and move to a cheaper part of the world while freelancing quite easily. Others will take the middle ground – rent their house out on Craigslist or AirBnb temporarily and try to live abroad before deciding to sell everything

Rob Cubbon

An entrepreneur who wants to help you

I have over 20 years experience in graphic design and marketing. I have run my own company Rob Cubbon since 2005.

I am also a bestselling Amazon author with books on web design, entrepreneurship and passive income. 

I have sold over a quarter of a million dollars of products online – mostly video courses. 

I provide creative design and effective marketing services. I love blogging and I love helping people with their businesses.

Being your own boss is an incredibly liberating experience but it can be difficult as well. There never seems to be enough time for what we want to do.

I’m driven to help people experience the positive side of entrepreneurship, not the negative.
