As for the book, I read it on my Kindle and it was hard to put it down as another reviewer said. She was right there, it felt like, coaching me, talking to me, and being very bossy with tough love, I loved it. It gave me a taste of how I must sound to my own clients.... Carrie also has the proof behind her teaching - she has made her success and she is passionate - INCREDIBLY passionate - about sharing this with the rest of us. I am delighted to have read this book, I WILL implement the useful parts, I will pass it on to others, I will follow everything else that the Barefoot Executive puts out and I will be forever grateful that Carrie created this book because her work will change and inspire the work of so many others.
If you are a brand new business owner and want to have an online presence or a total online business, she will give you lots of tips, and she really does a good job of simplifying the concepts WITHOUT dumbing them down. I loved that distinction. She is also funny, entertaining and just so likable. Thank you Carrie.
I bought the audio version of this book and got so much out of it, I came back and purchased the physical copy that I could use as a workbook and action guide.
I love how Carrie centered the activities within the book on finding my personal strengths, gifts, talents, and skills. Leveraging what I already know and showing me how build a business that pays me for the value I have within me. I felt empowered and excited to take the next steps in my business after reading it, instead of feeling like I needed to go out and get more skills before I could get started.
If this book doesn't get you taking action in your business then nothing will. It's not a book to read and put on the shelf, as I learned. It's a book to keep on your desk, brainstorm in the margins, and use as a plan to grow your business step by step!
Instead of being an autobiography of Wilkerson's success, as many of these types of books are, she tells you the steps she took, how she established contacts, who and how she connected with those more successful than her, and the intangibles of creating your own business while in bare feet (or however you dress at home). She writes from an encouraging position and chooses what seems to be the perfect time to give tough love too.
The book is packed full of ideas that the author repeatedly urges you to take and make your own. Wilkerson opens up the mind to believe you are an expert at many things and can get paid for that expertise. Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, a blue collar factory worker, an executive, or anything in between, this book will have you believing that new streams of income are not just possible, but you'd be foolish not to monetize who you are and what you know. Wilkerson challenges you to take action. Not tomorrow, today.
What makes this book warrant such strong statements is the fact that it's a comprehensive mixture of all of the concepts you need to know to understand business inside and out.
In addition to sound business principles, this book offers a meaningful section on working with yourself and with others (finding mentors). To succeed in business and achieve great strides, it's often less about knowing the business aspect but more about conquering yourself - either with productivity, working with people and with overcoming any doubts or fears - everything I am finding out as I work on my own venture.
I highly recommend this to anyone; it is an excellent foundation if you are just starting out and offers substantial ideas and suggestions. She doesn't let any business situation go unnoticed...trust me!
