Do you worry that your business will collapse without your constant presence? Are you sacrificing your family, friendships, and freedom to keep your business alive? What if instead your business could run itself, freeing you to do what you love when you want, while it continues to grow and turn a profit? It's possible. And it's easier than you think.

A better version of my favourite book the E-Myth Revisited. It's not about making yourself irrelevant but able to focus on what you want to focus on which most likely will generate more value

The "work-from-home" phenomenon is thoroughly explored in this illuminating new audiobook from best-selling 37signals founders Fried and Hansson, who point to the surging trend of employees working from home (and anywhere else) and explain the challenges and unexpected benefits. Most important, they show why - with a few controversial exceptions such as Yahoo - more businesses will want to promote this new model of getting things done.

I feel that this didn't answer all my questions about the subject and the problems that they mentioned have many solutions and not just using remote workers. There was also a lot of sarcasm where I believe that the solution should stand on its own without needing to break down other views. I am for remote work but this book hasn't covered the subject as extensively as I would have liked.

I really enjoyed the book called Rework by the same authors and after listening to it I wanted to know more about employees working remotely and was excited to find this book but was very disappointed.

I don't believe that this is the best approach. Story telling is powerful but the Alpha approach is not for me
