How to Work Online & Travel the World: Here's a Hint, Bucketlist Bombshells Courses (Review)!
So you're looking to travel the world while working online?
Or maybe you just want to know how to get started as a freelancer?
When I first started Dear Brunch Design, almost a year ago, I had no idea where to begin. I had so many questions about how to invoice, where to find clients that would hire me as a freelancer, how much I should be charging, and not to mention how to do all of this legally.
It was an answer to my prayers when I came across The Work Online & Travel The World Course by the Bucketlist Bombshells. This course was jam-packed with ALL of the information needed to start my online business...
Grab some coffee and a pen because I'm giving you an insiders review of The Work Online & Travel The World Course by the Bucketlist Bombshells.
What is Bucketlist Bombshells?
To put it simply, everything you've been looking to find...just kidding.
In all seriousness, the Bucketlist Bombshells are courses catered to women who are looking to build an online business and work remotely.
These courses were started by Cassie and Shay, two ambitious women who felt stuck in their 9-5 jobs. They took the leap and started building their online businesses while traveling the world. After realizing this life was possible and sustainable they began sharing their knowledge with other women through their online courses. Each course gives you practical skills, tips, and information on how to build your online business.
Bucketlist Bombshell Courses
They make it simple and offer three courses.
Design Skills Course:
"You’ll learn the most popular graphic design skills that clients are hiring for online from how to design logos, moodboards, Facebook ads, ebooks, mockups and more!" - Bucketlist Bombshells
Tech Skills Course:
"You’ll learn the most popular tech skills that clients are hiring for online like how to manage social media accounts, design websites, setup email marketing and more!" - Bucketlist Bombshells
The Work Online + Travel The World Course:
"Our signature business course for women to start and launch a service-based online business so you can have the freedom to work from anywhere in the world!" - Bucketlist Bombshells
I skipped the design skills course, and tech skills course on accident, really.
I overlooked the very important detail of each course and assumed the Work Online + Travel the World Course was a mix between the two. It's not, so don't make the same mistake I did!
You'll want to get the Design Skills Course and the Tech Skills Course before you you dive into The Work Online + Travel The World Course.
It's going to give you a great foundation for starting an online business. It's also going to help you develop some great skills that will only benefit you down the road in your business.
Now, I will say I managed just fine without the design and tech course, ONLY because I have a degree in graphic design. If this we'rent the case I would have made the investment into all courses.
The Work Online + Travel The World Course: Review
Okay so let me paint a picture for you. You're looking to start an online business, but have no idea where to start. You have a million and one questions and have been sitting on Google for what feels like a week. Wishing there was just one resource that gave you all of the information in one place to save you time, energy, and overwhelm.
That my friend is a real scenario that I was in just shy of a year ago when I was looking to start this online business. It was so overwhelming Googling each question on my little notepad in my college suite, and not making any progress.
I was listening to a podcast when I first heard about Bucketlist Bombshells. It was no coincidence and so I immediately took to Google, once again, to find out more.
And there it was...The Work Online + Travel The World Course
"Our signature online course will teach you step-by-step how to
build an online service-based business giving you the financial
freedom to live anywhere in the world!"
- Bucketlist Bombshells
I was so relieved that there was an actual course that could answer so many of my questions.
// Is it Worth The Money? //
One of my initial concerns was the investment!
It was a lot of money to put into a course especially coming right out of college. I had no idea if it would be worth the money. All I knew was I needed guidance in starting this journey, and if not this I would be investing in something else.
After reading a million reviews, watching YouTube videos, and stalking the BB Instagram I decided I'm in!
So, I graduated from college and enrolled in The Work Online + Travel The World Course
I can confidently say this course is worth every penny and more!
When you enroll you have lifetime access to all of the information in the course. It's a value-packed guide in starting your business from the ground up.
The BB's give you 9 lessons filled with videos and worksheets to go through. Each video is averaged around an hour-long and walks you through your next steps to implement in your worksheets. It's a self-paced course that takes around 6 weeks to complete.
I completed the course in 2 weeks because it's THAT GOOD!
// What's Included? //

7. Run Your Biz & Jet-Set Around The World
8. WTC Completion Certificate

// What Did You Find Most Helpful? //
I was initially impressed with the organization of each section. It was clear as to what I was learning, and what to expect from each lesson. Having the course paired with worksheets helped me digest the information, and gave me notes to look back on when I needed it. I still look back to my WTC notes when I need to be reminded of something I learned.
Here are three of my biggest takeaways from this course.
Number one was learning how to price my services. They not only give you a step-by-step guide on pricing, but the video with this lesson guides you through an excel sheet on how to do it based on your services and business.
The second biggest takeaway was the resources of how to run an online business. They give everything from project management systems, where to store files, where to find clients, and even scripts to follow to land clients.
This was HUGE for me! It's a necessary section that I never knew I needed.
It not only helped me land my first few clients, but it helped me take care of those clients while working together.
Along with the resources of how to run an online business the course touched on the legal side of things. It gave some general legal information from an actual lawyer on freelancing. It gives you great questions to ask if you decide to see your own lawyer, which is what I did and having these questions gave me confidence in what I needed to know as a business owner.
My last takeaway was traveling the world part...how does a course even help you to do that?
I didn't know either, but it was actually super helpful! The BB's go into detail about where to find the best countries for travel as a solopreneur, where to stay once you get there, and a must-have packing list!
I've yet to travel the world, but it's so nice to know I have all the resources from this course to travel if I decide to do so.
// Bucketlist Bombshells Alumni Success & Final Thoughts //
I finished this course in June of 2019, and by July 2019 my studio was fully booked with 4 clients.
My first client after this course came from the freelancing platforms suggested in the Find, Network & Land Clients lesson. I had a video call with the client, and they booked right after the call...
This was my first video call with a prospective client, EVER! I didn't realize how big of a win that was until later on in my business, and I never would have landed that client if it weren't for this course.
For me, this course was a vital resource in building my online business. I would not be where I'm at in my online business today if it weren't for the Bucketlist Bombshells...I'd still be on Google!
