Ali Julia review
Some readers might quibble with Keener's view that being a solo entrepreneur is almost always superior to working as an employee in an organization. People and businesses are all different, and the sweatpants consultant lifestyle may not be for everyone.
However, all in all, Keener's introduction to the "sweatpants lifestyle" is a great read and strongly recommended for those considering or just starting out on a work-from-home career.
For those of you who are looking for a quick fix, or a get rich scheme, this book is not for you. But if you have skills, integrity, and are willing to work hard (this is a real job and you will have to work), Mr. Keener's book will give you step-by-step advice on how to succeed in the world marketplace. It's very competitive out there, but the author is a marketing guy so he gives you tips on how to stand out from the crowd. This book has been a God-send to me, and I recommend it to anyone who has the desire to work from home.
The best part of this book, especially when compared to other "home business how-to" books is that this one actually gives you actionable steps to take, instead of just bragging about his business and giving you no substance like so many others do.
Matt also spends a good amount of time sharing what he has learned about how to stay organized and motivated, which can be a major hurdle for many at-home workers.
Now, keep in mind that there isn't a book on the planet that will give you 100% of everything you need to build your business, but if you're looking for a solid foundation to start from, this will help you out a lot.
