The Self-Employed Life
The Self-Employed Life is an extremely powerful book for business-oriented people. Author Jeffery Shaw has written an insightful book for self-driven individuals. Are you open to experimenting with new ventures? Does the idea of being a business owner excite you? Do you often dream of being a property proprietor? The Self-Employed Life has the tips, tricks, and advice you need to succeed in your self-employment.
The author introduces the reader to his world by relating his experience with self-employed business owners. Shaw is engaging from the start of this informative book. He openly talks about the fantasies that people dream of in self-employment. He shuts down the myths and the lies. By talking about his experiences and facts, readers will see real-life examples of the topics he discusses.
One of the best pieces of advice I found in this eye-opening book is that having your own business does not mean that you are in charge of everything. Numerous uncontrollable circumstances may cause you to take a back seat. When talking about the challenges self-employers go through Shaw shares solutions that have worked for him in the past. The methods Shaw uses are tried and tested, which is excellent as it gives his readers confidence in the advice he is presenting. The tiny snippets from the author’s life were the magic needed to make this book relatable to the ordinary reader. The author takes us into his world and tells stories of his personal growth, business relationships, and the letdowns that sometimes occur.
There are plenty of lessons in the book about topics that relate to self-employment. Topics about personal development, getting out of your comfort zone, marketing, building business models, creative and critical thinking, and referrals were terrific to read. Each of the 3 parts of the book has something that will benefit a student or novice in self-employment.
The Self-Employed Life is an intellectually invigorating book for readers that enjoy entrepreneurship, personal finance, and business-related content. Using the information contained in this book, readers will better understand what it means to be self-employed and what to plan for.
