Well, my name is Roseanna Sunley (although you probably guessed that), and I am an online entrepreneur.
I run a couple of websites and create my income through advertising, affiliate marketing, publishing, and other general online stuff.
What is a lifestyle entrepreneur?
That’s a good question!
According to Google, “a lifestyle entrepreneur is an individual who creates a business for the purpose of changing their lifestyle instead of making profits.”
In other words, I’m not here trying to become the next Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos. Instead, my goal is to be financially free through the use of passive income streams and investments and to live the ‘laptop lifestyle’ as they say.
My income is completely detached from time, meaning that I’m one of those who can earn money whilst I sleep! This allows me complete control and flexibility over my day, and even though I do still work I can also travel wherever and whenever I want to.
What you’ll find on this website
I have four main categories of posts on this website, and although it may not seem like it, they are all inter-linked in some way or another.
- Business book reviews
- Entrepreneurship and working online
- Travel and adventure
- My general thoughts and musing
Here’s a bit more information about each of those categories, and what you’re likely to find.
About my business book reviews
Selfishly, I started to doing book reviews to encourage and motivate myself to read more books!
I knew that I needed to learn more if I wanted to be a successful entrepreneur. So, by committing myself to continually produce reviews, I had to continually read books.
Within my book review posts, you’ll find a summary of what the book is about, along with my own thoughts as to if, and to who, I would recommend it. I also score each book out of 10 and you can find all the books that I scored 10/10 by clicking here.
Although all of my book reviews are 100% my own honest opinion, at the start of 2020, I stopped accepting free promotional books, so you can rest assured in the knowledge that all of my future reviews are of books that I have purchased myself and read of my own accord. (Books that I did receive free of charge prior to this have a disclaimer at the top of the post.)
(P.S. Since I started my non-fiction reading habit, my income has increased every single year!)
About my entrepreneurship posts
This ‘laptop lifestyle’ and ‘making money whilst you sleep’ is very alluring and lots of people ask me how to do it. This is the category where I explain exactly that.
Knowledge which I have accumulated though reading books, trial and error, and putting my money where my mouth is, is detailed here.
I’ll be covering topics such as search engine optimization, pay per click advertising, website building, email marketing, generating traffic, and the general personal development and mindset which is needed to play this game.
In other words, this is the section where the rubber meets the road!
About my travel and adventure posts
Back in 2017, I started detailing my budget-backpacking travels around Europe. I shared some of my travel tips, my must-sees, must-dos, and my personal travel stories.
Recently, due to my dog having an operation and the restrictions imposed by COVID-19, my adventures have come a little closer to home.
Future adventure plans now include me and my dog hiking, camping, and kayaking our way around Scotland, Wales, and The Lake District.
I’ll again be sharing some travel tips, must-sees and must-dos, along with our personal mini-adventure travel stories.
Although I make money online, life was not make to be lived behind a laptop.
About my generals thoughts and musings posts
So this is the category that’s most likely to get me into trouble!
It’s a place where I just write what I’m thinking and voice my opinions and frustrations.
These posts might not make much sense, they may be contradictory, and you may even disagree with them. All of which is ok, it’s simply a place for me to put the posts I feel compelled to write which don’t fall into one of the other three categories.
Like rummaging through someone’s draws, you’re never quite sure of what you will find!
There you have it!
So, there you have a semi-detailed rundown of me and what you can expect from my website.
If you want to stay up to date with what I’m reading, what I’m working on, or where my next adventure is, then please make sure to follow my social media accounts and also subscribe to my email list.
In the meantime, keep learning, keep working, and keep the adventure going!
