As someone who used Laura's advice to start my own successful business/side hustle 3.5 years ago I thought I knew it all. After reading this book I was wrong! There are so many good nuggets of information! The book goes into detail about taxes, retirement accounts, business structure, optimization, etc. I love that it goes into basically every scenario in starting a business whether big or small and that you can pick the scenario to tailor the information to your personal situation. This book would be perfect not only for the person starting out but also the person who wants to improve there existing business. I found myself opening up my business plan while reading the book and adding pages and pages of notes on how I was going to improve and scale my business.
I personally plan on becoming a full time solopreneur this time next year with my env. consulting company and this book have given me more confidence to eventually make that leap.
I have already passed the book onto my best friend who is 2 years into his own business and he was amazed at the detail in all the different scenarios.
I really (really) enjoyed this book, both in the paperback and the ebook versions. Having followed Laura for many years (the Money Girl podcast was one of my first introductions to this digital-audio presentation format), once again her voice is very present throughout the five parts over 19 chapters. I have enjoyed improving my own personal finances by listening to her over the past decade, and now I have a vision on how to translate this into future self-employment.
Her book smoothly introduces how to become my own boss, and more importantly, stay in business. She completed writing the book this past March, and it feels as though the uncertainty of living through our global pandemic was tremendously present. And justly so with small businesses bearing the brunt of our current economic conditions. Even so, Laura’s presentation of ideas, vision, and empowerment provides me with great hope for how to begin and succeed as a Solopreneur.
What was unexpected was how valuable this has proven right out the gate.
If you are looking for a guide to launch a side hustle or new business with a solid well planned foundation you need this book.
Get the mindset and tools to be objective and methods to both grow and protect your venture. I was impressed with the amount of value given.
Ms Adams has over delivered on the promises of most books of this type.
While yes there are areas that some may wish to be more in-depth, it gets you on track to asking those specific questions related to your business and thus serves its purpose. You don’t know what you don’t know so the value here is it opens you up to asking the right questions and fleshing out what is relevant to your personal circumstances.
Great job! It is going to be a book I will be giving to my friends who are thinking about starting up businesses.
