Hey there Awesome Action Taker!


Welcome to my site and thanks so much for visiting.
If you’re here I’m guessing you’re looking for a way to build a small business or side hustle that gives you enough income to live life by your own design.
How awesome is that?!
That we live in a time where we can work remotely, either from our kitchen table or a beach in Fiji, doing what we love, with complete freedom to work when and where we want.

My name is Jo Barnes.

I’m a British born, 40 something, globe trotting, adventure seeking entrepreneur, Mum, loving partner & budding philanthropist, passionate about freedom, travel, opportunity and sucking the juice out of life!

Back in 2010, fed up with the weather in the UK and suffering at the hands of the recent market downturn, myself & my partner made a decision to pack up ‘normal’ life and start traveling the world.

In just one week we sold everything we owned – furniture, books, DVD’s, toys etc., for the princely sum of £900 (that’s what you get for a quick sale), put our house up for rent and headed to Cyprus to house sit for a friend.

My daughter was 4.

It was the best decision I ever made and as I write this in 2022, we’re currently living in Phuket, Thailand and over the last 11 years have traveled and lived in;

Cyprus, Spain, France, Finland, Thailand, Australia, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia, Myanmar, USA

What is a Lifestyle Business

I define it as;
“Creating a business or a level of income doing something you love, that gives you the freedom to live life by your own design!”
It’s exciting, it’s life changing and it’s completely doable provided you’re prepared to put the work in.

 Action Takers Make It Happen!

As my business has grown over the years, I have come to realise that I love teaching & inspiring others to take action.

The single biggest thing that holds us back from achieving the life we dream of, is ourselves.

All the tools, knowledge, experience and training is out there for the taking. Easier than ever to obtain at a click of a button.

What is lacking is Action Taking!

All the ideas, experience and enthusiasm in the world aren’t worth a jot unless you’re prepared to step beyond your comfort zone and take the action necessary to make things happen!

So that’s where I come in.

My mission is to arm action takers like you with the knowledge, tools, strategies & inspiration to build a lifestyle business you can run from anywhere in the world, whether that be your kitchen table or a beach in Fiji!

Why Me?

As a consummate traveler, and as someone who runs her entire business online, I want to demonstrate and show YOU how to work and play from anywhere in the world!

Since starting my online adventure back in 2010 I have generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue every year via my online business education courses and in 2015 alongside my partner built a million dollar Amazon business.

I want to give you the knowledge and the tools to do the same, but most importantly I want to help YOU find the self belief and the inner strength to get out there and Make Your Goals & Dreams Happen!

You CAN build a business, you CAN make a difference to your life and the lives of others and you CAN do it from wherever you lay your macbook (or PC!)

My Mission For You

There is no greater thrill for me in this business than knowing that my content has in some way helped someone to completely change their life!

To receive messages like this;

and this;

So that’s my mission for you!

I want to give YOU the opportunity to make better choices because you have more money, more time and more passion for what you’re doing than ever before!

So keep your eyes out for my blog posts, videos, podcasts, ebooks, guides, emails and any other content I publish, because my No 1 goal is to provide you with life changing value!


This is not for the faint hearted. There is NOTHING about building a business or a side income that’s easy, get rich quick, or can be achieved with the push of a button.

In order to create a lifestyle you love, you are going to have to work to make it happen. If you keep looking for the magic button that’s going to shower you with money, then please by all means keep looking but you won’t find it here.

My content is for serious, passionate, lifestyle entrepreneurs who understand that there’s hard work to be done, but this hard work will pay off in dividends when it comes to their quality of life.

If that sounds like you then….

Let’s Get Started Right Now!

I would LOVE to hear your story! Please head over to the ‘facebook groupand tell me about you! I can’t wait to chat!

Thank you so much for finding me here, I’m over the moon we’ve made this connection and I look forward to helping you achieve your goals & dreams.

Jo 🙂

Brian Tracy

Years ago I saw Brian Tracy live on stage at a seminar. The man lit me up along with 400 other people in the room.

As I looked around I realised there was nothing more rewarding in life than watching a light bulb fire up in someone’s eyes. To watch their body become animated and to hear the excitement in their voice as they realise they CAN!

At that moment I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

I knew I wanted to elicit that same fire in people around me. To be the catalyst for change and to help talented and passionate entrepreneurs do more, be more and make a difference with their own business ideas.

I knew I wanted to connect, work with, motivate, brainstorm & mastermind, with both new & experienced business owners. I knew I wanted to investigate & explore new & exciting ways of doing things. I knew I wanted to break the mould of what’s gone before and to be honest six years in, I’m just at the beginning of my journey!

1. I went scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef for my 40th and swam alongside a reef shark. (Thrilling!)

(Clearly this is not a reef shark, but I didn’t get a pic unfortunately. This is Wally, he was gorgeous!)

2. I did a bungy jump when I was 24 from a 180ft crane in Faliraki and LOVED IT!

3. I have a deep ambition to be a helicopter pilot and have had about 10 lessons so far. I hope to achieve this ambition over the next 12 months.

4. I ran a seminar in 2009 called Make It Happen in 2009 and abseiled down the side of The Sheffield City Hall to promote it. Here’s the video – I hope you like Wonder Woman!

5. I love being a Mum! My 13 year old is absolutely gorgeous and we are both lucky to have the most fantastic partner & Dad in my lovely fella. He’s awesome and I’m biased! 🙂


6. I’m passionate about contribution and one of my ambitions is to raise over $1 million dollars for my Micro Angels micro lending team, on Kiva.org

So that’s just a little bit about me, so you get more of a feel for who I am.
