Although I have been self-employed for 14 years, this book caused me to reconsider the value of a number of things I am presently doing in order to make a living. If you want an easy read that makes you think about why you are doing what you are doing then this is the book to read. Enjoy it as I did and get motivated to make a positive change for yourself.
It took me many years between reading this book and becoming 100% self employed, but in between I used some of the concepts in this book to learn business, one project/concept at a time. I can't thank Barbara Winter enough for being there and giving me a view of the world that made sense... even when I found that a full-time "day job" was important to my current situation.
I've now been self employed for 15 years. Wow. Thanks, Barbara!
I found this book a timely read even though it's original printing was in 1993. Especially in this economical struggle for many, the author shares not only her own experiences with entrepreneurial business ventures;but other's who have gone on their way to being their own bosses. She writes, "Big businesses have lost their cachet, as well as the belief that they were the foundation of our society's economic health."
I would recommend this book to anyone who is any field, already a small business owner, whether beginner or seasoned, and also to anyone who may find themselves out of work, downsized, or just plain unhappy working for someone else.
This book if filled with ideas on how to brainstorm, marketing, creating "multiple profit centers", finding your passion, doing your homework and much more. It also contains many exercises, questions and lists to ponder, and blank spaces for goal setting.
In the last chapter of the book, the author gives a recommended reading list, and
many resources to various associations, and publications all related to the self-employed. I found this to be an inspirational read, that has given me many more ideas, that I may not have discovered, had I not read this book. This title may be found on Barbara J. Winter's website, or at Amazon.com.
