Welcome to Rebel Celebrity!

My name is Dr. Mike Jansen, I'm the founder of Rebel Celebrity and a serial entrepreneur / American expat.

So what in the world is a Rebel Celebrity? It's someone with freedom, fortune, fame, and the ability to live life on their own terms.

I created this website to write about 2 main topics:

  1. The most successful people, entrepreneurs, athletes, and celebrities in the world
  2. How to start your online business so you can achieve freedom, fortune, fame, and live life on your own terms

I created this website in 2020 (it was originally a fitness website, I rebranded it in March 2023 to Rebel Celebrity), and I have sense launched other websites including

When I first started this website, I was working as a Physical Therapist in the United States. I loved my job, and working in the rehabilitation field was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.

But the downsides of my job were too big to ignore:

  • I had limited freedom in my day-to-day life
  • Despite making over $10k per month, it was very difficult to grow my income
  • My field got hammered during the 2020 recession, and I couldn't rely on my PT license to make a living

This blog was my escape plan – a way for me to make a 6-figure online income, so I could have the financial resources and freedom of time to live life on my own terms.

After 1.5 years of doing literally EVERYTHING wrong, my tiny blog grew to a full-time income, and I was able to quit my job as a Physical Therapist and work full-time on my business!

And let me tell you – as soon as I did this, my life COMPLETELY changed…

  1. I hired my business coach – something I highly recommend
  2. I met my current business partner (we co-own the website
  3. I moved to Panama City, Panama – one of my favorite cities in the world)
  4. I met a TON of new friends in the online business space

And many other incredible things that I can't talk about here…

(This is Panama City, Panama. The freedom to travel – one of the many benefits of starting your online business. I live right on the coastline in the nicest hotel I’ve ever seen in my life…)

As soon as I quit my day job and went full-time with my online business, a whole new world opened up to me. 

I now had the ability to:

  1. Work whenever I want
  2. Take time off whenever I want
  3. Make as much money as I want
  4. Travel whenever and wherever I want

…And more.

My life completely changed in the first 1-3 months sense quitting my job, and it's all because of my decision back in 2020 to start my first blog!

Starting an online business really is one of the best decisions you can make.

With Rebel Celebrity, it's my goal to give you the tools and inspiration you need to start your first online business.

For the inspiration side of the equation, I've covered the incredible life story of some of the world's biggest names, including:

…And many more.

Of course, inspiration and motivation is only half the battle – to get your online business off the ground, you also need the right tools and information.

If you're interested in starting a blogging business, I teach you everything I know about blogging for free in my email newsletter. I also give you a free ebook on starting your own successful blog – you can visit the Rebel Celebrity homepage to sign up.

Of course, there are tons of other great business models that you can also choose from.

I've had a lot of people write to me and say they are interested in online courses. For that reason, I've done my best to review every major online course currently available.

Here are some sample articles you can check out:

I also do my best to review all of the latest software tools that you can use in these business models, including blogging, YouTube, and Ecommerce.

By now, you're probably wondering how to start your own online business.

The truth is I started just like you. I was working a full-time job, and had no prior experience. I just started working on my blog outside of work, so I was working during the day and blogging at night.

After 1.5 years things took off, and I haven't looked back sense!

I can't give you my entire life story here, but I'm currently running my online businesses from Panama, traveling internationally, and living a life that is better than anything I could have imagined even just a few short years ago.

If you want to make a full-time online income, you CAN do it! I know this, because I did it myself – even though I was working a full-time job, and I had never started a successful business before.
