Since I'm more into entrepreneurship, this book was recommended to me to help me develop different income sources for my business. The first part of the book was mostly technical tips regarding scammers and Internet information. The fourth part really helped me see beyond my one method of earning money through the business and gave me some good tips into branching out. By far, it was the most useful part of the book for me personally. The middle sections gave real companies and ideas on how I could expand my current offerings through affiliate marketing, selling print-on-demand chachkies, chat-lines for customer support (or charging for consulting) and more. For anyone looking at work at home jobs or just ways to make extra money, sections 2 and 3 are definitely for you. The author gives a LOT of companies to work for, either as an employee or independent contractor.
Overall, this book is extremely useful for the work at home professional or entrepreneur.
Her wit and personality shine through what could otherwise be a tedious read, and I found myself reading page after page, actually laughing out loud.
It is concise, to the point, and contains a wealth of information - from how to understand and grasp the vocabulary and use of internet marketing, to what to look for when navigating the pros and cons of starting your own business, be it a franchise, MLM or garage start-up. Written with humor and candor, it is to the point and highly readable. A book for today and today's economy.
Ms. Mooradian is smart, focused and highly resourceful. I recommend buying this book and, if you live in the Emerald City of Seattle, you might even consider attending one of her classes! Nanci, Artist/Photographer
The second and third parts of the book deal with finding random ways to make extra money, and real companies that offer flexible jobs or ones you can do from home. The fourth part of the book deals with starting your own business, brainstorming ideas, and motivation. It's a very thorough book, a quick read with a ton of useful information.
