Rory has written a roller-coaster account of his feast and famine experiences in work opportunities, and most importantly he tells us how to avoid them. This is a very personal account which would help anyone who is unemployed, who is a contractor or a consultant without a guaranteed stream of work. You will learn how to apply your social skills to gain work and how to use the on-line networking sites to best effect.
I liked Rory's succinct-yet-comprehensive coverage of the feast-and-famine dilemma I found it honest, helpful, insightful and read it in one go.
The writing style is fluid, energetic and accessible.
The rant at the start of chapter 5 is unfortunate and I'm glad I read beyond it. The early chapters establish his credibility and the later ones deliver his recipe for success. And, like any good recipe, can be adapted to taste.
Unlike most books which I read in fits & starts, I read The Saw-Tooth Dilemma from start to finish on a recent train journey. The conversational style makes it an easy read and the honest and open sharing by Rory of his personal highs and lows add a human and emotional touch which adds to the impact of this book as much as the practical advice. For me, whilst reading I was struck by the fact it could have been me writing very similar tales about myself and I'm sure it will resonate with many others in the same way. Highly recommended, useful and inspiring.
Rory provides good practical advice and suggestions on how to avoid the boom bust business experience (and the horrors that go with it). If you're lucky you will get to read this before the pipeline dries up and things go horribly wrong.
From boom to bust, work to nothing. If that's you, this ebook will help you to focus on priorities and smooth out the peaks and troughs - the saw-tooth in the book title. Rory has been there and shares stories from the front line. Recommended.
Rory hold no punches in his easy to explain results driven book. Full of practical help on how to stop the peaks and troughs of income in freelance. We need more business authors who roll up their sleeves and say it like Rory does.
