A Great Book on Setting up and Running a Successful Online Business,
This review is from: Living a Laptop Lifestyle (Paperback)
I've just read `Living a Laptop Lifestyle' by Greg and Fiona Scott, which is about how to set up a successful and profitable online business.
I did wonder when starting to read 'Living a Laptop Lifestyle' whether it would be a list of strategies for making money online but no, this book is more about the fundamentals of running an online business. In the book you'll learn the essential skills which will put you in the position of being able to start earning serious money online.
A lot of time in the book is spent looking at yourself and the authors take us through their five-step process for achieving a success-based mindset which is needed to set up and run an online business. Many books focus on the 'how' but reading this book makes you realise that the 'why we do what we do' is by far the most important aspect of running any business.
The book also has links to a number of videos done by the authors which back up what's being said. There is also a list of essential resources which will make running an online business even easier.
I loved reading this book because the authors have made it very personal by sharing their stories and experience; the 'real people' behind the book comes out through the text. It's not a dry book written by theorists but by two people who have `been there and done that'.
The ideas, tips and strategies shared in this book are equally applicable to people looking to start any type of business; it's a very inspiring book.
One line in the book sums it up, 'Maybe you dream there is a better lifestyle but you don't know how to go about it or even how to start.' Well, the answer is simply ... buy this book. Highly recommended.
