Format: Paperback
Rasmus Lindgren has written a fantastic book about breaking free from the 9-5 wage slave life and taking control over your own life - your income, your time and your ability to go where you wants to go.
He sets up a triangle between these 3 factors - money, time and mobility - and makes a good case for the fact that most of us sell our time rather cheaply for money - thus robbing ourselves for both time for our selves or time with family and friends.
The bottomline is that as employees we will never get beyond selling our most priceless commodity (time) for money at a rather poor exchange rate. When (if) you reach pension age - your time, health and ability to enjoy life is allmost spend.

Then Rasmus goes on to point out what to do - start for yourself - but in contrast to most books on that subject - this author doesn't promote that groundbreaking one idea that will make you a millionaire (or not) - but rather points to start up one or several small business that can give you a revenue - not to make you a millionaire - but to fiance the lifestyle you want - with time for yourself and your loved ones.

The idea is supported by cases and different business models - many of them rather easy to start - both time- and money wise!
The book is a easy read. The ideas sound and easy to execute. The most hard one to swallow for most people is the shift in paradigm that you don't have to live like your parents or grandparents - but that you can have a much better life breaking new ground.
The book have inspired me very much and my plans for this year is to open up a business based on some of these ideas.
If a book actually gets you to do something - well it can't get any better than that!!

Rasmus was tired of placing his a..9-5 on somebody elses office chair – and preferred the mix between his own chair and the hammock ( or pool )

If you’re like that – this is the book for you

Rasmus’ message is easy to understand and put to use, as he shared a bit of his own story with cool, practical business info’ in ”How-to”-style

Fortunately you dont need to sell the house or pawn the family jewels – just follow the book step by step, advise by advise – and you’ll get to live the free rock star life.

And how far you wanna take it is entirely up to you to decide… Rasmus neither promises nor suggest you’ll invent the next Skype or facebook. But he does promise that anyone – U 2 – can become a rock star with this model. ( even with out the shades of Bono or the make-up of KISS.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Rasmus – and he’s the real deal that guy – as well as his message in the book too.

So if you feel like playing in other places than ”Cubicle arena” from 9-5 and you think that the ”Rock Star Trifecta” model might awaken your curiosity, then you gonna love this book and more so the outcome of it

HASH(0x93a6a00c) out of 5 stars Read if you want something different for your life! 27 Oct. 2013
By Adrian Robson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A truly inspiring book that will set your mind thinking. Rasmus is not advocating working yourself to the bone to pursue a life of opulence, instead he sets out a plan for building a small online business over the next couple of years that will return an income to cover your living expenses. Rasmus delivers a powerful alternative to the 'normal' working life most people live by. Consider what you really want out of life and take the steps to fulfil this goal. The sad fact is that the more we earn, the more we are likely to spend and at the end of it, we are no happier. Pick the things you enjoy and challenge yourself to follow through. Rasmus lives this life (with a family I might add), so give his book a chance and see if it ignites your passion to do something different with your life as it has done for me. If you are happy with the long commutes and the work colleagues from hell then this is not the book for you, but if you truly want something different for yourself and your family then surely it's worth a read.

I've contacted Rasmus in the past and he has been kind enough to take the time to contact me back. He comes across as a pretty nice guy and has has a lot to offer in terms of experience and advice. Good on him and I wish him all the best.

HASH(0x93a6ef90) out of 5 stars Freetime and creating a small business 28 Jun. 2013
By dgraversen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I finished reading my friend Rasmus Lingreens Book The Lifestyle Business Lifestyle Rock. It is about starting to live your life as a rockstar and working on the projects that you really find useful.
The big idea in the book is that we always have been working on creating a better life for us self and how we are doing it is a bit different. Normally in our life we just work for a paycheck each month in a corporate job. That is what drives us. Rasmus believe that work is an illusion and that we can change the way we see the things and how to live a better life.
Unlike many other program Rasmus is not advocating that we should found a business and sell it for millions of dollars and retire. Rasmus rather want us to create business that can give monthly revenue of 1-5.000$ a month and that will make us much happier. That way we can spend time on what we really love.
The books I a good follow up to Timothy Ferris "The Four hour work week", but Rasmus book is more focus on how to create a good business.

I really do like the illustrations in the book, they are very focus on creating a rockstar image on how to see things and it give a nice feeling of where things can head.

From the perspective for the freelancer I also see this has a lot of potential. If I could run a small business on the side that generated some revenue on the side then my freetime would be much different.

It is a really thought provoking book about if we are spending our time on the right area and moving toward what we want to achieve.

"You don't need a fortune to start your own business - if you model it correctly, you can have a true balance of money, time, and mobility to live the lifestyle you desire. This book provides the knowledge to live the lifestyle you want--not just in theory, but in practice. By implementing several simple tools like the Rockstar Trifecta, you'll learn how to create a work-anywhere profession in which you can earn more income by working smarter and less."

Rasmus shares his own journey to successful lifestyle businesses and the experiences of others others who have created profitable online businesses. The businesses include consulting, coaching, speaking, e-commerce, and graphic design.

I am so glad I came across this book. It is insightful, motivating, and inspirational. I highly recommend The Lifestyle Business Rockstar!

HASH(0x93a6efcc) out of 5 stars Very Informative! 30 Jan. 2014
By serenity - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this book very interesting. Everyone would love to lead the rock star lifestyle and this book gives you the information and knowledge to do it. I was instantly captivated by the fact that I can do something I really enjoy and make a living at it. The book is well written and the author does an excellent job sharing his own personal experiences on how he achieved success with his own lifestyle business. I definitely want to be my own boss and have the time and freedom to enjoy my life. Reading this book has giving me the encouragement to do it. This is one book I will be reading over and over again.

HASH(0x93a70018) out of 5 stars This book rocks (quite literally)! 23 May 2014
By David Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I interviewed Rasmus a couple of months ago and he had so much good advice that was based on his own experiences that I went straight on Amazon and downloaded the Kindle version of his book. The only regret I have is not reading this book sooner as it's full of tips and advice you can use to build your ideal lifestyle business by understanding the Trifecta approach.

It's not often that I re-read books, but this is one that I will go through again and again. If you want a better work life balance, more time to travel and the opportunity to do the things you love, you should read this book.
