A Location Independent Laptop Lifestyle at this Year’s Retreat in Bali!

​Meet the eCommerce Experts Speaking at the 2018 Drop Ship Lifestyle Retreat

More people than ever are looking into location independent jobs - a laptop lifestyle letting them work from any internet connection in the world.

Since the dawn of eCommerce, folks have been trying to hack the traditional workweek/job. Humans looked at the possibilities, shed the skin of the past, and took up a new mission… to design their lifestyle.

We’ve seen this in books like the infamous 4 Hour Work Week. Other books like I Will Teach You How to Be Rich focus on designing a lifestyle based on your strengths and weakness. And there are more and more people choosing when they work and how they work.

This is the reason Drop Ship Lifestyle’s founder got started in the eCommerce biz. Anton knew that life was short. He saw the chance to design a lifestyle, and he took it.

When Drop Ship Lifestyle was born, Anton decided to plan out one retreat per year. He knew that a community support group was vital for entrepreneurs in his program, and he wanted to get as many people together in one place to talk shop and become friends.

Thus far, Drop Ship Lifestyle retreats have been held in some beautiful exotic locations:


​Chiang Mai, Thailand


​Krabi, Thailand


​Kona, Hawaii


​Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

​As time went on, the DSL community got tighter and tighter…

And now, we have an unbreakable community that cares for each other and grows together.

Learning the Laptop Lifestyle Together

Throughout the year, we work to build better lives for ourselves. Our community corresponds on private masterminds, Facebook groups, and forums. But once a year, many of us meet up at a dream location and collaborate in person.

And we’re just one month out.

Can you believe it? It’ll be our fifth annual DSL Retreat! And as many of y’all know -- this year we’ll be chillin in Bali.

Exploring the jungles and napping on the beach is what drop shippers do best, but we’re also good at hustling… any time - anywhere 😉

So the Bali trip isn’t going to be just a vacation. It’s going to be a gathering of folks with priceless knowledge at their disposal.

Not only will we be working together - talking shop with the Drop Ship Lifestyle community, but we have some incredible speakers lined up every morning. These cats know their stuff. They’re some of the most experienced eCommerce experts around, and they’re ready to share what they know.
