Review: Making a Living Without a Job: Winning Ways For Creating Work That You Love
Making a Living Without a Job: Winning Ways For Creating Work That You Love by Barbara Winter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
An extension of Dan Miller's "No More Mondays," Barbara Winter's "Making a Living Without a Job" extends this knowledge to go beyond the basics to show you examples of what a life without a full-time job might actually be like. Not only has she created several different money-making endeavors throughout her career, but she trains many others to do the same.
My favorite portion of the book is where she talks about creating multiple streams of income. She has you picturing a juggler, who begins spinning one plate and once that plate is going, to start spinning another plate. Basically, she is describing her process for creating many ways of bringing income in at the same time. Instead of starting everything at once, though, Winter encourages you to start one project for 90 days, then begin the next. She explains that if you create many ways to make money you'll never rely solely on one income stream, which makes it easier to survive.
Much of the book also focuses on increasing your self-esteem and easy ways to do that; coming up with creative money-making ideas and why you should never stop that process; and how to take care of yourself along the way.
It is an easy, quick read with tons of ideas for new businesses that can be started immediately.
If you are looking to bring in money, this book will show you where ideas for self-employment comes from.
