No Bullshit Road to Remote Work Review (Taylor Lane Course)
Today is an exception. We won’t review a course about eCommerce or affiliate marketing.
This time, we’ll review a course about travelling and working remotely, which is a topic we’ve discussed, and it’s quite related to our usual reviews.
Taylor Lane is known to be a quite famous digital nomad, and she’s the author of The No Bullshit Road to Remote Work. We’ll be analyzing its content and determining whether or not it’s worth your $397 (or $420 if you choose the 2 payments option).
Who’s the author?
Taylor owns the website remotelikeme.com, a travel blog she uses to record her experiences as well as offering worksheets, eBooks, and courses among other tools useful for digital nomads.
She started travelling in 2014 to Guatemala as a volunteer worker, and that hooked her into travelling. She’s visited almost all places in Europe and Latin America, and she started working with email marketing.
She has a Facebook group as well, and she says she’s helped many to start their remote careers. She then dedicated her time to creating courses, groups, and eBooks about getting remote work.
It’s easy to see she knows what’s she’s talking about as well.
Reviewing No Bullshit Road to Remote Work
This is her main course, and it’s quite different from her previous mini-class, Resume Reboot, costing $97.
As usual, the course splits into modules, this time 7. The first one is about discovering your ideal job and the second tells you how to find it. Modules 3 and 4 focus on your application: how to apply and boosting it. The 5th module is how you can succeed at your interview, and the last 2 modules tell you what to do afterwards: negotiating your salary and your action plan and mindset.
The course is fairly short, especially seeing how much she’s asking for the entire content. Most modules have a few videos at most, spanning less than 15 minutes.
The good thing is that she does have the right knowledge, and she’s very good at communicating.
What do you get with this course?
The first module jumps into product research, showing a 4-step method for finding “hidden gems”. However, it’s not as groundbreaking as he wants you to think: just a nice method for finding some products.
The first duplicate comes in the Facebook Ads module. It’s the same as his Tiger course, with 7 videos offering insight into getting started and setting up your account. I don’t know why he didn’t expand it since you can find courses with at least twice as much content as this section. Besides, it’s missing relevant updates.
The secret Instagram approach is also recycled from his Tiger course, and it’s not a secret. You probably already know it if you’ve seen videos on Instagram marketing.
An addition to this course is the print on demand business model and how Youssef teaches you to implement this strategy to your store on Shopify. He then compares it to using AliExpress.
You have a standard section on setting up your store, and it’s only different from Tiger in that it’s two shorter videos instead of a single long one. While the module focuses on a print on demand business, you can apply this knowledge to build any store.
You then get a couple of videos on growing your Instagram and building your brand account. This module stands out thanks to Youssef’s meaningful insight, and it’s something I was expecting, given his experience as a consultant. So I can’t really complain about this section –good job.
The last videos talk about live reviews for your store, and the last module about dropshipping in America.
You finally get a directory with verified suppliers you can use for your business, but beware that these will probably only work for US-based companies or residents. You can try as an overseas business, but you should just skip it unless you have an SSN or a reseller ID.
I hope you found this review useful and if you have any questions, please comment down below. I’ll be more than happy to assist you.
Once again, thanks for reading my No Bullshit Road to Remote Work Review and I wish you the best of luck.
