A well though out book with lots of freebee topics found online. Whilst the book is not a business idea generator it will help you nurture and grow the ideas you have.
However the real beauty is the immense amount of work that has gone into including the resources, exercises and further reading to help you transform your newfound inspiration into useful action.
This combination of enthusiasm and practical application is what stops this being just another business / self-help / personal-development book.
Think: far more substance than a book of motivational quotes, but less boring and stuffy than a traditional business book.
My one grumble about this ad other books of its ilk are that they've all been written (or seem to) by folk who are in well-paid jobs who are escaping the office world, so it's a bit difficult to relate to when your own life is somewhat different. That said, it's encouraging to know that there is far more to life than being a slave to the wage.
I would recommend this book as there's a bit of information about the practical side of things too - registering as a business, tax and so on, which so many books seem to neglect.
Her book brings together years of blog posts, course materials etc in one place. It contains all the core information and exercises that will get you going on the road to a free range lifestyle. It's so important to do the exercises but you can take things at your own pace, which I liked.
It really has worked for me. After years of trying to dream up some 'big idea' on my own, Marianne's approach and exercises made me realise that not only was I focusing on the wrong things but I also needed to get out of my rut and experiment with test projects instead of overthinking every tiny detail.
I have now launched my own business, with no loans, capital or overheads, and it is growing at the speed that works for me. I am so much happier and I can also still pay the bills !
