Build A Profitable Digital Business That Unlocks Your Freedom & Gives You Joy
Introducing digitalbusiness.school, a proven way of building an online business that actually generates a sustainable profit
Escape the 9 to 5 and be free
Before you start a business, the process can feel complicated, risky, and scary at the same time. But you want to own a business because you want to…
- Have something to show for after working / studying for many years
- Escape the 9 to 5 and the pressure of working for someone else
- Be in control of how you spend your time
- Stop living from paycheck to paycheck
- Earn more money
So you make a plan to start your own business or side hustle.
And then— you get stuck. Nothing happens. The business doesn’t take off because you never started.
Or maybe you started something but people didn’t respond to your idea. And you’re just there—stuck for a long time.
So you continue your 9 to 5 job or mediocre business. You work on something you don’t believe in just to pay the bills. But the urge to be free, to do something you truly want — that never goes away.
If you’re reading this, it means you want to own your own business.
You want to have some kind of product or service you can sell and make your own money.
Something that’s yours. Something that gives you an additional income stream.
You look around, and you see so many people succeed at building their businesses and you think, why is it working for that person, and not for me?
Whether you want to travel more, buy your dream house, or do something small like taking the day off because you want to—we all have different visions of what our life could look like.
I've been there too. And here’s what I learned: This desire for a better life isn't random. It's also not to be ignored.
We're human beings who, at our core, want freedom over what we do and how we do it. It’s a natural part of who we are. Don’t suppress this urge.
Anyone who leads the good life always has the freedom to do what they want. It's a requirement for living a happy and prosperous life.
The freedom to take a run in the middle of the day—and then take the entire day off, just because you feel like it.
The freedom to have lunch with a friend, not worry about the price, and then make the lunch 2 hours, because you're both having a good time.
That type of feeling changes your life. It makes you enjoy everything more. And it's not even about the money.
You don't need to make a million bucks a year to be free. As long as you have some financial stability, you can be free.
In today's world, that's more important than ever. Look, I must be honest. The economy and global stability aren't looking great.
We're in a transition. We're scaling back on globalization. And there are many threats to the free world. We can no longer expect stability.
We must create our own stability. How? By taking our careers into our own hands.
I genuinely believe that you need to control your own financial destiny.
When I started earning my own money online in 2015, I didn't care if it was "just" $300 a month.
I cared that I generated that revenue myself, with my skills, and most importantly: By providing real value.
When you create a business that helps others, you will not only earn, but you will also contribute to the world.
That's what we need to build a better economy: More people who operate genuine and helpful businesses.
All of this might sound like a distant dream. But it's closer than you think.
That's why I created digitalbusiness.school. To me, it's much bigger than a course. It's a way of life.
Because the best way to have financial stability? The best way to have the freedom to live life on your terms?
Start a business that's profitable, meaningful, and aligned with who you are.
Even if you don't want to feel sleazy. Even if you "hate selling". Even if you don't know how to get traction, or find your first 1,000 true fans that'll actually want what you’re selling (hint: it doesn’t involve social media).
And even if you have no idea how to get repeat customers every month, and everything just seems too complicated. If you're stuck, and you don't know how to get out, it's not your fault. If things didn’t work out in the past, it has nothing to do with your effort.
Because building a business is not harder than working at a 9-5 job.
Yes—starting a business isn't easy. But it's not rocket science, either. And most of the time, the simple truth is that most people fail at starting a business not because it can’t be done, but because they lack a strategy that actually works.
So if you're ready to build a business that gives you profit and joy, and you're ready to be free, this course is for you.
And if you join me, I'll show you, step-by-step, how to get there.
I'll teach you everything I know from running a profitable online business that generates at least six figures a year since 2017.

About Your Instructor
Hi, I’m Darius Foroux, a digital entrepreneur, author, and podcaster. I've created more than a dozen digital products, including 8 books, 4 audiobooks, 7 online courses, a private newsletter, and a membership program. My digital products currently generate a high six-figure revenue per year.
My ideas have been featured in TIME, NBC, Fast Company, Inc., Observer, and other publications.
What My Students Say About The Course
Digital Business School is a no hack zone that leads you on a fluff-free guide through the essential elements of creating a successful and profitable business. The focus is on you, the student, not a life biopic of the teacher. A refreshing change!
That said, he gently but confidently shares the mistakes and triumphs that he has encountered in a conversational tone that can simulate a one-to-one conversation.
The content is unique but still intuitive. It all feels so logical when put in this way but with the cacophony of advice in the digital ether it can be difficult to hear the sound of your own voice.
Traditional business schools beware, Darius’s course has the students covered. Whatever stage you're at with your business, I recommend this course. I'm feeling more in control of my business than I have since I started it two years ago.
Thank you, Darius!
I have been following Darius' work for a long time. So when he announced he was going to launch a new training program on online businesses I got ready to jump in. However, my high expectations proved to be way below the value I found in this course.
Tailored and delivered in the classic Forouxian style (playful, useful, reliable), digitalbusiness.school comprises a package of innovative strategies, real-life case studies, no-bullshit perspectives, and hands-on exercises that turns it into a must-have resource for the actual or aspiring digital entrepreneur.
In a nutshell: if you're planning to start your online business, this is one of the best investments you will ever make.
Digital Entrepreneur & Author
Packed with value, honestly. Even the lessons about topics I have a lot of experience in taught me something new. In an era where we’re experiencing total social media overload, the most intriguing part to me was that Darius was able to build a credible online presence and business without social media. The course is well structured, super practical and different than other courses I’ve seen.
I was looking forward to digitalbusiness.school for a while and it delivered. Darius’ vast knowledge and experience is obvious, as he shares powerful advice (from years of personal trial and error) and trains you to have the right long-term approach to growing your business. I took a ton of notes and I’ll be going back to them frequently down the line, as I continue to grow my FFS Principle book and build other digital products in the future.

Case Study: From $0 to $1,220/month
To prove the effectiveness of this course, I built a new digital service with everything I teach in digitalbusiness.school. I came up with the idea for a new service on June 17. I validated the idea and immediately started building it.
I built it without writing a single line of code. The service was finished by July 9. By the end of that same month, it was generating $1,220.50 a month in recurring revenue. See the screenshot below for proof.
All I used was a laptop and the ideas from this course. And I did this by working on this for a few hours a week on the side.
Inside digitalbusiness.school I show exactly how I did this.
Student Success Story: Rhys Jack
I’d like to introduce you to Rhys Jack, one of our digitalbusiness.school members. Rhys lives in Sydney and joined the first cohort in the middle of the pandemic. When I asked Rhys why he joined, he said:
“I see business as a challenge, and I like to go after challenges. Whether it's public speaking, martial arts, finances, health, relationships, etc, I don't want to spend my life limiting myself in any way. I feel if I can dedicate time and focus to something I fear or don't understand I can overcome the challenges and create something positive and worthwhile from it. I love those challenges and finding an authentic way to express myself with them.”
This is something I and other digitalbusiness.school members can relate to a lot. We love to take on new challenges. And at some point, we take things seriously. And that’s when Rhys joined our program. Like most of us, he didn’t have a clear business idea, but he knew he wanted to help people through a blog. He writes:
“Over the past 6 months, I've really dedicated time to consistently making posts, doing courses, and trying new ideas, then applying those to the website. I feel like It's getting much clearer now and it's starting to get more traction. My mindset has shifted as well, I know there is value I can give others and that I can generate income from that value.”
This is something many prospective members are interested in. How long does it take to get some clarity? My experience is like what Rhys said; about six months. Right now, Rhys is working on introducing his first product. About the digitalbusiness.school course, he said:
“The course helped me get much clearer on my target market. I’ve now simplified my brand and added a new theme to my website.
Building a business like this takes time and it helps to get insights from people who are also going through the same experiences. That’s what I’ve found most helpful about the digital business course, having access to Darius and the community to bounce ideas off and get feedback on has been very valuable and opened my eyes to the many possibilities of creating a sustainable online business.”
And I’m looking forward to supporting him. You can check out what he’s up to at rhysjack.com.

Some More Experiences From Students
Co-Founder & CEO at European-Gateway
I'm usually hesitant when it comes to online courses that talk about online business. But I've worked with Darius in the past and I've been following his work since 2016. I'm glad I took this online course because it totally transformed my view on running a business!
I loved the honesty and transparency of Darius throughout this course. The amount of new information about growing an online business was surprising. I've read several books on this topic but I was surprised by the strategies from digitalbusiness.school. Strategies that I haven't seen anywhere else. I might be biased, but I recommend this program to every new and experienced entrepreneur.
Darius is someone I look up to like a mentor. His success in business is not accidental, and in this course, he shows you exactly how he's done it. As someone who doesn't generally like courses, I was happy to hear about the possibility of going at my own pace, starting from the modules my businesses currently are at.
And even as a 7-times startup founder, I still learned things I can apply in my businesses right from day one of the course. This is my second course from Darius, and it won't be my last. Whether you're new in business or a veteran like me, there's something for you in this course!

I first discovered Darius Foroux's articles in 2018 that focused on productivity, business and wealth building. January, 2019 I joined his email list, then I bought a couple of his books.
His candid writing style plus the amazing stick figure art had me wanting more. I decided to sign up for my first Darius Foroux course, Digitalbusiness.school. The course is an easy to understand step-by-step, go at your own pace guide with Q&A Sessions. I can even go back and refer to course material at anytime. The BEST part is that Darius and his staff are always available to answer all of your questions.
I encourage anyone looking for a one-stop shop business guide that is easy to follow to take Darius Foroux's course, Digitalbusiness.school. Why spend your valuable time researching on your own when you can tap into Darius' years of experience? You will be happy you decided to take the course!
