Book Description

Never Work Again: Work Less, Earn More and Live Your Freedom

Welcome to a very different kind of business book.

Never Work Again shows you how you can build a successful and profitable business without the long hours and high stress that most entrepreneurs suffer from.

Trust me – I’ve been there and it’s not fun. In the months after I started my first business I didn’t know any better. My business was making me ill, but I was too wrapped up in what I was doing to spot the signs let alone to do anything about it. That is until the day I found myself on a London tube train begging a stranger to call me an ambulance and thinking I was going to die. That was my wake-up call. Luckily I got a second chance.

That day I realised that life is short and precious and I made a decision that if I pulled through I was going to do things differently. I decided to restructure my business efforts so that I could live life to the full.

What I decided to create for myself was:

  • A business that I could be proud of
  • The financial freedom to live the life of my dreams
  • The time freedom to do the things I love and to be with the people who matter most to me

And now I want to help you do the same.

After all, deciding to start your own business is something you do because you have a vision of a better life for you and your family. It’s your chance to take control and live life on your terms. And done right it will give you the financial freedom and the time freedom to do the things you love, when you want to do them and with the people who matter most in your life.

Never Work Again will show you how to create a great online business that gives you the time to work on your own passions in life.

In short, a business that allows you to work less and earn more.

Never Work Again shows you how you can easily start your own no-money down virtual online business – a business that will allow you to make money online and quickly achieve both financial freedom and time freedom.

  • All you need to do is choose from a number of simple blueprints and follow the one that’s right for you
  • You will learn how to create positive habits that will free up your time and allow your business to grow more quickly than you ever thought possible
  • You will be able to work from home or work virtually from anywhere on the planet – what’s your favourite city or beach?!
  • And you will learn how to automate and outsource your business, leveraging other people's time for your own benefit so that you can start living the life you really want

But more than this, Never Work Again explores what it means to live a truly happy and fulfilled life – to really live the life of your dreams. It encourages you to examine your own motivations and desires in order to determine your true purpose and path in life – so you can discover what freedom really means for you.

Remember, your time is precious – in fact, it’s the most precious resource that you have. Don’t waste another second of it doing things that you don’t absolutely love. Learn how to start creating the life of your dreams today.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book if your starting out December 7, 2013
By Just Me
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first few chapters of this book gave a really good perspective on how to get started and how to get your mindset and perspective in the right place. If you are starting out or if you have lost your direction, the first part of this book will help you out.

I think somewhere after that it leaned a little too much on what others have written, and while I have read most of the books that were referred to (and they are all great books), this book would have been better with less of that. Of coarse if you haven't read any of those books I would also recommend them.

I would have liked it better if the Freedom Business blueprints had more substance and more detail. Lets take the drop shipping blueprint;it says set up a website - find a wholesale supplier - open an account - Gather content. Now to me that's not a blueprint with details it was too vague and lacked enough details. Its like saying that your buying blueprints for your house and you open it up and it says - foundation - floors - walls - roof, without any of the details of the construction. Then tells you to do your own research, read these recommended books on drawing house plans, and figure it out yourself.

So I personally enjoyed the first part of the book and would have like more details from the rest of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Let the Title Fool Ya! September 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With a title like "Never Work Again" I wasn't expecting much and thought it was all hype. I've read numerous books promising wealth and less work, and they are all basically the same. This one is different.

Motivational, inspirational, practical, and very, very helpful. I am always looking for ways to improve my business and financial situation and am often disappointed with new books claiming they have help and new information for everyone. This one comes through. Ideas and information that was new to me has been very helpful in building my dream. This is so much more than a how to, while giving you the nuts and bolts, it also helps you explore your dreams, values, and encourages growth, no matter where you are in your business goals.

Diagrams sprinkled throughout are helpful for those visual learners and there are exercises that also get you thinking.

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to start a business, already struggling with a business, or for those who have achieved some level of success... you will find something new in this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read!! September 20, 2013
By Lindsey
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Balancing work and family is a great struggle for me and many others. As a stay at home mom of two babies, this book has been so inspiring to me. I feel confident that in time I will be able to work from and bring in that extra income to help support my family, while still raising my children full time at home.

This book is full of great insight, ideas, examples, tips, and stories. Also a lot of helpful legitimate ways of making money, NOT bogus ideas!

I would highly recommend this book to all stay at home parents, entrepreneurs, and anyone with a dream of financial independence. Bravo to this Author, Erlend Bakke; on an amazing job well done writing this helpful book!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Soporific Drivel February 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
When I was younger I had dreams of self-employment, having my own business and being a millionaire by the time I was 30. That didn't happen.

Like most kids I was constantly told to work hard at school get some qualifications then I'd get a good job. That kind of happened.

So, for the past 30 years I've been employed- in the same job for the last 20. It's been ok but now I'm bored, very bored in fact and can't bear the prospect of doing the same old thing for the next 20-and that's always assuming that the austerity measures don't snatch it away beforehand. Ergo for the past couple of years I've been looking at various business opportunities and ways of developing multiple streams of income.

Although I've got a few projects on the go I'm always on the lookout for new information and fresh ideas. As a result I've ended up on various mailing lists which is how I ended up with a link to this product.

Given that the book was free at the time and had excellent reviews I decided that there was nothing to lose by downloading it.

To be fair it started out ok. In the first chapter we get to discover why the author had to get out of the business he was in and start his own venture. Nothing wrong with that. He talks about how school does nothing to nurture and encourage entrepreneurial spirit. I agree wholeheartedly. He talks about death and dying and how life is too short to waste time doing unfulfilling things. Very true, and whilst many of us would benefit from a wake-up call, a prod in the right direction this information could easily have been condensed into a chapter or two but unfortunately it goes on and on and on and on and on and on..........

In fact at 12% Erlend actually states, "You're not reading this book to hear about death.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome book. September 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am always looking for ways to improve my income. I am an author and a finance manager and I make decent money but one can never have enough. This book has given me some great ideas for not just my job and writing but for all of my future endeavors.

If you are looking for some insight into a get rich quick scheme this is not for you because those books and programs are bogus and don't work. This book shows you how to make money...period. no gimmicks just a series of great ideas and stories.
