WHAT'S THE PROGRAM ABOUT?
It doesn’t matter where you see yourself…
…. maybe you're brand new to business or perhaps you already have business experience and you’re ready to start something new.
Whatever the case, OBL will challenge you to create and implement everything you learn quickly.
The only requirement is a desire to start and grow your online business.

From banking to business beginner success.
Rod took what he knew from 20 years in finance, banking and parenting young people with disabilities to creating a new business. Since starting with OBL in September 2019, Rod has swapped his old income level and old banking life for a new future growing his business as a disability plan manager. “I knew how I wanted to run my business and how to deliver the best service for my clients, but I had little idea how to get the business up and running to a point where I could get the clients! Between setting up a website, SEO tools and social media, saying what you really mean through good copywriting, and asking the right questions to speak to a target audience, these are things that I knew needed to be done but were definitely in the ‘too hard basket’ until OBL.“
what would life be like …?
Close your eyes for a moment and dream about what life could be like if you did successfully start your own business.
- There's a strong chance that you'll be waking up in the morning and thinking … “yay! I'm going to work on MY business today.”
- You'll know you are helping people solve problems … and that people are happy to pay you for your help.
- And because your business is online, you could be talking to and helping people all over the world.
- With that extra bit of money coming in, you'll have more choice about what you spent it on.
- You might even celebrate the fact that you're paying taxes … because it means you don't have to depend on the government or Centrelink for financial support anymore and your taxes are helping someone else now.
- You might even have more opportunities to live where you want to live … maybe somewhere near the beach or in the mountains or by a river.
- And if you really want to grow your business big, you could have a team of people helping you, giving other people the chance the work.
how does the OBL Plus program work?
Everything at OBL is online. There’s no travel, no traffic, no hassles.
And the best bit? Learning at your own pace at times that suit you.
Everything you need to complete the program is provided for you in our supportive and caring community. You’ll also have access to a private forum where you can ask questions, get feedback and connect with other participants, all online.
Creating an online business can be confusing and downright overwhelming. We get it. That's why the entire OBL team also runs their own online business. We've learned what works and what doesn't the hard way. And because of that, you'll be able to avoid some of the time and energy-sucking mistakes we made.
Each week you’ll receive a new video training module. We provide online Q&A sessions for when you get stuck. These sessions are designed so that you can join in each week … or watch the replay … and have our coaches answer questions, offer advice and guidance and help you to keep taking action and moving forward.
Our private OBL community is part of the program. It's a place to connect with fellow participants in a familiar environment.

Are You A Carer?
Are you looking for something you can do that's just for you?
Something that will give you a purpose beyond your carer's duties?
Something that will give you new skills … and a bit of money?
Are You 50+?
And you're struggling to find a job that will isn't so physically demanding?
Are you looking for something that will give you new skills?
Something you can use to earn a bit of money now and once you've retired?
OBL has flexible learning. The team understands ‘carer life' and the need to wear many hats so all sessions are recorded to enable participants to revisit the learning. The team made it easy and learning from home was terrific. I highly recommend the OBL program to carers who have an idea for a business that is wanting to hatch. They will learn an extraordinary amount about the online business world in such a gentle and supported way. They will also learn about themselves and be encouraged to be all they can be.

Frequently Asked Questions
I'm not very good with computers. Can I still take part in the Online Business Lift-Off Program?
Yes. You don't need to be tech-savvy in order to create your own online business. You DO have to be comfortable with using the internet, though. If you can do Facebook, you can do online business.
What kind of tools do I need to get started?
You are going to need an internet connection or some way to regularly access the internet. You will also need a desktop computer or a laptop. It may be possible to use a tablet in the future, but for now it's best to have a desktop computer or a laptop.
Can I use my phone's internet connection instead of a laptop?
It is possible to use your phone's data plan to give yourself an internet connection. However, it's not advisable unless you have a cheap, "all you can eat" data plan. It may be a very expensive way to access all the software tools you will be using to build your online business. It is recommended to have access to a desktop computer or laptop instead.
What if I just want some help with finding an idea, instead of doing the full program?
If you want to get going right now, you can purchase the Online Business Ignition course, which teaches you how to find and validate an online business idea. The 8 short modules will get you started ....
What if I live in a different time zone?
The great thing about the internet is that you can take our courses at times that suit you. We want everyone to succeed, and we'll do our best to make sure we help you with any questions as quickly as possible.
What if I already have an idea? Would I be wasting my money doing the course?
That's exciting that you already have an idea for an online business! Doing the Online Business Lift-Off Program is going to help you validate your idea and actually turn it into reality. More importantly, you'll have our expert guidance and support, which results in fewer unnecessary mistakes and dead ends. In the end, we hope to save you time, money and energy in the long-run.
