Good starter for those thinking about leaving the rat race. Focused on how to get to a position to start and less on what to do once you've taken the jump.
I expect non-fiction books to be well-researched. I'm unwilling to listen past the first chapter or 2 if the evidence consists of anecdotes about friends' experiences or 'what God wants'. I was after useful information, I feel this read like a non-very-experienced person's personal views. What's more that person relies heavily on a religious view that I cannot relate to.
no just wary
I don't have an issue with the narration, I have an issue with the content.
This review is based on the first couple of chapters as I'm not willing to listen to the rest. I felt it was important to leave a review though, otherwise only those who think it is worth listening to will review, which will positively bias reviews.
"Great first book by Kelsey"
Kelsey is doing a great job interviewing moguls for her YouTube channel. Since she provides such content I wanted to buy her book and show my support.
I would recommend her book to people that haven't started a business yet and want a little guidance. If you are a seasoned business owner, the material is a bit elementary.
I like that her personality shows in her writing.
She uses passive language in her writing. She should display more authority in her speech. She says words like, "I think"and "Maybe"
When writing a book giving business tips, write with more certainty in your experience.
"I loved the book"
but chapter 8 could use a little work.
the book has many inspiring sides. incredibly compact for the information/advice it provides. I have read similar books that take much longer to give the same rid bit of info., in that sense this book is gold.
What are some of the inspiring sides?
there is love, Hussle, practical advice, inspiring quotes, and a workable approach (no scary terms)
I love this and recommend it.
looking forward to being the next solopreneur who was inspired by this book. I will be listening to it again soon.
"Informative quick read"
I enjoyed this book! It was straight and to the point. Not a lot of fluff which I loved!
"Great Book Kelsey."
Great advice, love the information for Internet self promotion. Thanks for the inspiration and techniques.
Wonderful , realistic . I liked it so much and I started to benefit from it.
"Power packed with lots of information"
Great book from start to finish. Answered a lot of questions that I had. Seems simple to follow. Just need the discipline.
"3 Hour long pep talk"
More technical guidance as to whats involved in "going solo"
Its a 3 hour long pep talk, which is fine because some people need that. If you're looking for something a bit more substantive look elsewhere.
