Excellent book. I've read numerous self-help books on self-employment and finding the right work to fit your personality and this was the best written with the most useful practical advice and exercises. It also was loaded with examples of how others had achieved satisfaction with work from home careers.
Most books of this genre are written by vacuous, Left-wing looney tunes and are filled with vague platitudes and idiotic drills telling the reader to engage in self-affirmation rituals and other silly navel gazing nonsense, but this one was not like that, which is why I liked it. Althought the authors are perceptably of the "liberal" persuasion, they do not come across as new-age flakes, which is more than I can say about other books of this type I've read, whose authors sounded like refugees from the Hippie Era still stuck in the Age of Aquarius.
What is great about this book, along with the other reviews, is that it contains real life stories and the profiles of people who have made dramatic changes in their lives and career choices. Each section has work sheets that help you to define your goals, reflect and write about your ideas, and they help you to think outside the box. The authors provide a list of over 1,600 independent careers to help you think about possibilities you never would have imagined. Check it out and see what you can create in your life right now!
