About

Fall in love and travel. Probably two of the best feelings in the world. 

So what about if you could do this two combined and also spend the days doing what you love. How much would that be worth to you?

Welcome to meet Lovlr (Pronounced: Loveler) = Lover + Traveler

People love to travel. The travel business has grown a lot over the past years, but reality is still:
In order to travel you need time and money, and to get money you need to work. Work takes time, so in most cases you end not travel as much as you would like to.

2 years ago I started to study people that were making money while they were traveling. The result from that study was publicized in one of my books, and it brought up a lot of important aspects. 

The world has changed over the past 5 years. Things has got cheaper, everybody has access to internet. And even very poor people have a chance to get education online in order to make some money.

The result become pretty clear. The price for competence has become a lot cheaper. And it just continue to drop.
Just look at the new company fiverr, where you can get basically everything you want for only 5 $. Or Counchsurfing where you now can go anywhere you want and sleep for free, instead of paying a hotel.

The trend seams to be that people expect to pay less and less for services these days or even get them for free. So how can you still make money from what you love?

In my studies I found out that people do more to avoid pain than to gain pleasure. This is not one of the reason why people fail, but rather the reason why they never even try to follow their dreams.

Because of that I started to create a project on how to help people reach their full potential, be able to travel and pay their expenses doing what they love.

Every person I know have something that they love to do and that they are passionate about. If you put that person in the right environment, they tend to succeed in a much higher rate and also most of the time archive their goals. 

In my research i found out that the right environment should contain:

  • Inspiration - When you constantly get reminded of other success-stories instead of telling yourself that its impossible, your own attitude tend to change to a positive view = I can do this. 
  • Right network - This is one of the most important points. Your life and success will depend on what people you have around you. 
  • Having fun - When you love what you do, its easier to put a big effort into it. And quite logical, the more effort you put into something, the higher are your chances to succeed your goals.  
  • Creative mindset - The world has changed. Looking at big companies like google, we constantly get reminded how much creativity actually matters, and how important it is to avoid fall into routines.

From here, the idea of The new social platform Lovlr was born. 

Lovlr is a new social network that provide you the right environment to success:

  • Inspiration: We aim to inspire people around the world, with beautiful photos, amazing success-stories and letting our members share their own life success so everybody can take part of it.  
  • Network: We aim to get 1 million followers over the coming years. This huge network is going to provide you with support, sharing talents and open up a world of new opportunities. 
  • Having fun - Rules of love is simple. To give and don't expect anything in return. Lovlr members will receive invitations to different kind of events, to create a strong bond with the network. We will host parties, and offer special personal offers and deals that we set up with hotels, only for our fans. We also let our community decide what kind of events we are going to host and other kinds of offers.  
  • Creative - As soon as you start to connect with people from our network, you will suddenly see yourself doing more what you love, and less what you dislike. When you spend time doing something more often you tend to get better, and the result is clear. Your chances of get money from it is growing.

How long have we come?  
Many things has already started, but there is still a long way to go before everything is done.

Website has been set up, and we are currently working on the details.

Our Social media networks has been set up

We currently have a team of 40 people worldwide with different competences that will help us launch Lovlr

The business plan has got good response, and we plan to launch the project sharp in January 2016.

What do we still have to do?
Building a network of members is something that takes long time. Its a constant effort of getting peoples attention and host interesting events to get people involved.

We already today have a nice looking website but there is still a lot of functionality missing. We want a webpage that kicks ass, and that will inspire others to get involved in Lovlr, also outside social media.

What are we asking money for?

We want to improve our website, so members can login and create their own profile, to easier network with other people outside of our events.

We need money to marketing the platform, especially outside social media, by creating events and to reach out to the right channels.

We want to create a website that changes depending on where you log in from, so you always have the community with you when you travel

We want to hire a programmer to build a nice app, in order to easier find other members around the globe.

Part of the project is to integrate with hotels and restaurants, and we need money in order to travel and build up a network with them worldwide.

Why is this project going to be successful?

I (Emil) have previous experience of starting up several successful projects Lovlr is my life-project and I will work day and night in order to create success.

The key to success is to build up a strong global network. We already today have plenty of contacts in large continents such as South America (where I lived for 1 year), North America and Europe.

In our network there is plenty of multi-language speakers, and we are working hard to attract many people from different continents.

This project follows the very popular trends that we can see today.

The project has been described as some of the best things from social media combined into one platform. We could not agree more.

Where do I earn money from?
My job at Lovlr will be to travel around and create events for our members, and sign deals with hotels and restaurants in order to offer special and personalized offers to our members.
The idea is not to earn money from the members, but rather create unique opportunities for them to travel and experience things they could not find anywhere else.
Hotels and others would obviously finance part of this events and also for recommending their hotels to our members.
We would still never choose to recommend something that we didn't believe was awesome, and the money we earn, will be used to host amazing events, parties or workshops for our members.  

Why is Lovlr inspiration for couples primary?
We have noticed that couples tend to be the ones that usually travel together, and are also more welcoming to specialized and personalized offers that hotels can offer.
Couples are happy travelers, but also an amazing inspiration for single people that seeking for love and someone to share their life with. Lovlr is open for everyone, and we will even host event for our singles, in order to meet new people or date other members. 
Everybody wants love, and lovlr is a platform for everyone.

Some last pep-talk:
What do you love to do? What is your passion?

 Earning money from doing what you love is not hard. But you need to get in touch with the right people.
Why? Because you might be a amazing singer, but you cant set up a studio to record your music, or you might be a great photographer, but you are shy and have no network to work with.

An idea or talent can be amazing, but it will still be useless if you cant start it. You cant always do everything alone. Sometimes you need someone that can help you, but also want to get helped.
Success does not come from loneliness. Humans are a social creature and we need others to succeed.
 There is a reason why all this success-stories that you hear about, is always created by a group of friends in a basement. Or the famous quote by president Obama said, "I wouldn't be the man I am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago.

We cant do all, and most of the time it would be easier for people to help out each other instead of waste their lives trying to make all themselves. Lovlr connect this talents and make them grow together, finance their travel and spend the days doing what they love.

I would like to say a big thank you for pleading this project.
Dream big

- With love
