About Rob Cubbon
I’m an Amazon bestselling author, online instructor, business coach, and international speaker who wants freedom for you and success for your business.
In 2006 I was wasting my life away on a string of mundane jobs in offices. Since 2008 I’ve been working from home getting paid to do what I love and now travel the world running my 6-figure business.
I started my own company, the imaginatively titled Rob Cubbon Ltd, and website, the imaginatively titled RobCubbon.com, in 2006.
More recently I have been creating e-books and video courses on the subjects of running a web design business, online promotion, web design and passive income.
Being your own boss is an incredibly liberating experience but it can be challenging. I’m driven to help you experience the positive side of entrepreneurship, not the negative.
Mission statement: I want to help and inspire people to build sustainable online businesses, earn passive income and experience greater freedom and happiness in their lives.
I have free courses about WordPress, passive income, design and email marketing, you can find these at https://robcubbon.com/freecourses

Here is a synopsis of the content of the book, chapter by chapter.
Overcome Analysis Paralysis; Purpose & target market – avatars; Elevator pitch – who are you and who do you help?; Design worries; Competitors; Discussion of platforms – WordPress.org vs. WordPress.com
Every website should have one main purpose. And that purpose needs to be really simple.
Ideas; Keywords; Brand; Registration
The domain name is the something, in the www.something.com, of your website's address.
Shared, VPS, Dedicated, Cloud; Name-servers; WordPress, (blog title, pretty permalinks, admin username)
Now that we,ve decided on a domain name, there's only one more thing to do before the excitement starts and we can create a website. And that's finding a web host.
Regularity; What to write about; Social / relationships / comments
Your website will live or die on content. So you may as well get started NOW!
Themes (free vs. premium); Responsive; Threaded comments; Featured images; How to get a great logo and branding
Design consistency is important for your brand's recognition. But I just don't want you to stress or spend a lot of money on it. (I know, this sounds strange coming from a designer.)
Essentials; XML Sitemap; Google Webmaster Tools; Google Analytics; SEO (titles); Contact Page; Ensuring zero spam; Subscribe to comments; Social bookmarking buttons; Cache & speed; Security; Backing up; Favicon
You have to implement or engage with most of those essential WordPress tasks. Of course, you could pay someone to do this for you, but I would challenge you to do it yourself. All the information is at your fingertips.
Connecting Social Media
Twitter; Facebook; Google Maps; YouTube
I have purposely made this section of the booklet short, as I think that a lot of time can be wasted on social media.
Comment – gravatar; Social media; Email; Meetup; Conferences
This is one of the most important chapters in the whole book. The subject of this chapter is critical to your website's success. It's something that is all around you, it's something you interact with every day and yet you,d sometimes think it has nothing to do with your business. People!
Community; Email list; Consultancy (hours for money); Affiliate; Ads; Info products; Membership; SaaS&

Earn money in your spare time
This strategy to leave work and start a business is fairly risk-free and obvious: Start a business while you’re working. The business you work on in your spare time is your “side-gig” or “side hustle“.
This is exactly what Brian Creager did. Brian was on a high six figure salary in corporate America, with a wife and two children to look after.
Brian eventually created a men’s haircare product brand. Two months after putting the product on Amazon, Brian had made $600 revenue before costs. Not much to get excited about.
However, Brian’s mastery of the Amazon marketplace meant that, just six months later, his monthly gross profit exceeded his six-figure corporate income.
Work at your “side hustle” while you’re at work
Kelly Exeter was a web designer who was doing so many freelance side-gigs, she sublet a tiny 10 ft. x 10 ft. office in the same building as her previous company, and started her agency Swish Design. Within two months, she was earning more than her salary at her original job.
Six to twelve month “runway”
When Jyotsna Ramachandran quit her job in Chennai, southern India, she had 6 months of money saved up and a husband who was working and supported her decision.
Also from India, this time Bangalore, Sriranga Ramaseshan, an employee at Hewlett-Packard, spent two and a half years saving up enough money. He handed his notice in March 2013. He now runs his own school Eduplot Learning Solutions teaching accounting qualifications where he employs 20-25 teachers.
Or, just do it!
Mads Singers had a good job with IBM in the UK, but thought he could help more people by setting up his own consulting business. He moved to Davao in the Philippines with no more than $10,000 in savings and only $200/month income from the one coaching client he’d picked up. He wanted to feel uncomfortable to force himself to do amazing stuff. Mads’s is still based in Devao and his coaching business is going strong.

You are free already, you just don't realise it yet!

I used to do unsatisfying jobs and not have any aspirations that my life could ever be any different. It never occurred to me to question what I was doing and why I wasn’t free to do what I wanted.I kept on going to those boring offices to do unfulfilling work, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.Now, I’ve just got back from a eight-month long vacation where I was travelling whilst working on my online business.How did I turn my life around? The first step was the mindset shift which is explained in this book. I also explain how the mindset shift was an essential entrepreneurial decision that helped me start businesses on the Internet.
Watch the thinker
If you watch your thoughts you will also realize that they are incessant. This would be a random selection of my thinking every time I was going to work in the morning:
You know all the nasty things you say to yourself? Just imagine if you had a friend who said them to you. Would you stand for it?
The only way to kill this negative self-talk is to be the watcher of your thoughts. If you catch yourself thinking negatively, notice it, do NOT berate yourself, but calmly turn your attention to the present moment.
Meditation was my starting point away from despair and dysfunction.
When I discovered meditation, I knew I had something special. I had something that I could always go back to. Something good that was always there for me. No one could take it away from me.
If you’ve never meditated before then only do it for more a few minutes at first. However, as it becomes a daily habit, you’ll want to meditate for longer and longer periods.
You’ll enjoy moments of great relaxation as your ability to concentrate on the present improves.
Inside these moments, you’ll find great freedom. Inside these moments, where you are more deeply connected to yourself and the universe, you can create a better reality for yourself.
And when you’re deeply, deeply relaxed you will connect with yourself on a deeper and deeper level. You can make suggestions to yourself.
You can use this good feeling to good effect. You can make the affirmations you want to realize your dreams.
From Wage Slave to Freelancer to Business Owner to Successful Entrepreneur.
I became freelance because I didn’t like working for companies. I set up my own business because I didn’t like working for people.
I am now an accidental entrepreneur and the whole process has resulted in a very happy human being.
Many believe that the age of the big corporations is past. They are simply not nimble enough to discover the new products that will keep them abreast of the market. Small businesses can now market across the world with none of the costs and aggravation of previous eras. – Anthony Hilton
I used to be like everybody else. I used to travel on the underground train to my place of work along with millions of other people. Head down in the morning paper. Not questioning my existence.
But I hated it. I hated the pettiness. I hated the falseness. I hated the fact that other people (and, increasingly, younger people) could tell me what to do. Even worse, criticize my work!
Somehow for some reason I ended up out of that rat race. How? Going freelance was the first step.
The difficulties of going freelance
In someways becoming a freelancer was actually harder than setting up my own business.
But, once you’ve gone for a few years without a regular pay check and you know you can do it, the sky’s the limit.
Why are you freelance, anyway? Why don't you get a proper job? This was the reaction I got from most of the people who I used to work for as a freelancer.
But, I couldnit understand them either. Why work your ass off for someone else? Is it an important job? Does it benefit other people? If not, then you're faking it. Why feign the importance of your job when you're ultimately adding value to someone else?
I'm proud to say that the last time I had a proper job Margaret Thatcher was still Prime Minister.
Talented people don’t want to work for anyone but themselves. – Anthony Hilton
This book is very personal to me – it’s semi-autobiographical.
Back in 2003, I was caught in a rut professionally, emotionally and mentally. I drifted from freelance job to freelance job, lived for pay check and the less said about my spare time the better.
Warning: the book contains language and situations of an adult nature.
The internet came along and changed my life – but not in the way that you think. This book doesn’t center around one transformative life-changing moment. Instead, this book contains a whole host of them.
There’s lots of advice here that can help you turn your life around and start a business online.
The book follows my journey from my first disastrous job, through my stagnation on the London freelance design circuit, then from starting a blog and working from home as a freelance graphic designer to eventually to becoming director of my own company and an entrepreneur.
