The shift of the traditional economy to a digital one was not always easy nor happens without problems. But the new model of doing business remotely is now present and can be used by anyone interested in developing a side income online to boost up his/her living or enhance his/her present income.
It is not difficult today to have some good ideas for developing products or rent your knowledge and skills to someone else, exchanging your time for money (or other resources, of course).
This small book provides the basic ideas on how can earn some side income in the new digital economy. The books covers:

- How To Develop An Income Online
I hope it would help you realize more things about the new economy and at the same time build a business on the side.
Simplicity is a demand by many people today, living and working in an over-complicated world.
Modern societies and economies develop too much stress and information overload while influencing the people in various ways.
People today are feeling alienated, and modern conditions drive them to live without goals or a compass and work too much without results.
To succeed in such conditions is not easy. You need a different approach to help you cope with the modern demands of life and business.
You need an approach to help you focus on what it is important to you and connect on a deeper level with the people and the things are valuable to you.
You need a more simple way of living and working. But that's not all! You need a different way of doing things, a way not only would permit you to cope with the modern environment, but also to become more effective in your everyday life. Simplicity, as a way of living, can do that!
Simplicity signifies a new winning strategy for those want to own their life and business and choose responsibly what they want to gain and what can afford to loose.
As Takis Athanassiou writes: "Simplicity is not abandonment! It is what I thought when I start realizing more and more that I needed to do the things I used to do in a different way."
And in this way, this book is born. As a response to general demand for a more simple way of living, as a challenge for managing to live on and with what matters the most and as a winning strategy can help you deal with a highly complicated world.
These changes, made intentionally on a personal and professional level, can propagate results and outputs in the areas of personal development, relationships, business, communities, policies, politics, etc.
Considering the present situation, with all the problems a modern person has to cope with, the changing of things that are not working anymore, as used to be, should and ought to be a task of personal responsibility. And for this reason, I believe that a broad initiative must be taken, in order to regain the insights that can lead us, to formulate a better social, political, business and personal environment.
I believe that Leadership, as a principle and disciple, is a vital component in this procedure and can be used by anyone in order to enhance his/her personal and professional life.
Furthermore, if leadership backed up and supported by science and productivity strategies, the results would be awesome.
Today, in a competitive market environment, with more demanding tasks and requirements a person can cope with, and with a widespread information overload demanding for attention, a person should he or she have a guide to support him/her in his/hers daily, short and long term goals.
This little book moves to that direction. It consists of articles and posts that provide a framework for reflection and discussion on topics related to the areas of business, leadership, personal development, productivity, and of the tools can support an effective activity in these areas.
