Create a laptop lifestyle with flexibility and the creative freedom to build something you're proud of. Let me show you how.

My name is Regina Barkley, Founder of Local Life Publishing. We produce high-quality, glossy, local lifestyle magazines that readers love and local business owners are proud to advertise in.

I love helping my clients achieve their immediate goals. I help create fulfilling, flexible and financially rewarding careers for smart entrepreneurs who would like to publish their own local magazines and are passionate about the importance of “living local.”

Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration.
The rest of us get up and go to work.

Time for a change?

I know that feeling...

Is it time for a change?

Looking for a new job?  Or, perhaps are you working for someone who stifles your creativity or micro manages you? Maybe you are ready to get back into a career now the children are in school full -time?

Do you want to have more money to secure your future and enjoy the little luxuries along the way but not by being “owned” by a 9 to 5 job. 

Would you like to create a life you can share with your partner, involve your family, leave a legacy?  Do you long to create a business, career and life you can be proud of and have total control over? Read on, Boss.
