For all of the millions of Americans who are out of work, soon to be out of work, or wishing to be freed from unrewarding work—here is the must-have book that will show you how you can make a living by working when, where, and how you want.

Newly revised and updated, Barbara J. Winter’s guide to successful self-employment is now more relevant than ever before. Drawing on the techniques and ideas of her popular seminars as well as her own thirty years of business expertise and that of other successful entrepreneurs, Winter offers the practical, proven way to launch your own profitable venture. Her indispensable advice ranges from why creativity is more important than capital to how to avoid the most common pitfalls of self-employment and how to develop multiple profit centers.

And for this new edition, she has added timely advice on topics including:
•how to find opportunity in a chaotic economy
•why smart, small and spunky is the 21st Century business model
•using the Internet to open the door to fresh opportunities
•the best resources to help you create and grow a business that is uniquely your own
•how to leave Employee Thinking behind and build an Entrepreneur’s Mindset
•and much more

Here are all of the tools you need for getting the most profit out of life both professionally and personally.

5.0 out of 5 stars What I think of this book 18 Dec 2010
This is the second time I have read this book and enjoyed it even more than my first time. It is very readable, practical, filled with real-life anecdotes, enjoyable and makes one realise that dreams are possible to achieve indeed. It has added more fuel to my dreams and I will certainly be dipping into it again and again for my own good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make a life, not just a living 30 Jan 2012
Feeling very motivated with only 20 pages left to go. It's like a friendly helping hand giving you encouragement, guidance, confidence and unlike other similar books, Barbara gives plenty of useful examples of how you can think outside the box and make your situation work for you.

Thoroughly recommend. There's also a newsletter if you want to subscribe to that too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyfully Jobless - FABULOUS! 20 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought this would be another 'learn what you need to know about working for yourself hum-drum book.' I hoped this would be a 'new ideas, new perspective, do REAL things to succeed at being self-employed.' Was I in for a shock!

This is a book that takes the reader, one step at a time, toward pursuing being JOYFULLY jobless! It is FABULOUS! There are so many well-written and thought out concepts to expand what someone who may have attempted or even considered self-employment to consider.

Barbara Winter delivers an excellent primer to hope, possibility and REAL ways to explore self-bossing! THANK YOU very much!

4.0 out of 5 stars Joyfully Jobless? What a wonderful concept! 26 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great read for the down-at-heel, stressed or just plain-bored workers amongst us who dream of breaking free one day from the rat-race & earning a living from doing what we love. The book offers good advice & ideas as to how one would set about becoming joyfully jobless....great concept, if you know what it is you want to do!! For those already wise as to their passion in life, this book may just give you that final push towards telling your boss where to stuff his job & taking that leap of faith towards creating a more enjoyable, successful & freer lifestyle.
