Publisher's Summary

Have you made the leap yet from working a J-O-B for someone else to working at home (or from anywhere) for yourself?

If you are already running your own business and want to crank up your productivity, the strategies in this book can help you with that.

If you are just getting ready to make this dream happen for yourself, these time management and productivity techniques are going to be a critical catalyst for your success!

I know what it feels like to be spinning your wheels and staring at incomplete to-do lists day after day in frustration, feeling overwhelmed at everything that needs to be done.

It wasn't until I finally made the commitment to conquer procrastination once and for all, that I easily achieved my dream of location independence months later. In fact, this book was published from an island in the south of Thailand.

Whether your goals are to travel the world and work from anywhere or to run a successful business from home to allow you to spend more time with your family, time management is the critical piece that can help you to achieve that success.

perfect for implementing immediate change

Quick, effective, inspiring. I like how the book gives you a to-do list for every chapter. I plan to buy a physical copy so that I can highlight these sections and put them to work!

Disappointed with this book

Any additional comments?

The content itself is very repeating. The author goes over the same concept (pretty simple at that) over and over. For example, she would start with the statement like physical clutter will reduce your productivity - and then it will go into a 5-7 min over-explanation why with many repeating examples.
I understand the need to pad the book a little, but I felt this was done too much, almost making it unbearable. Trying to find useful tips was like looking for a needle in a haystack.

In addition the reader was also slow, like reading the book to a kindergarten class.

My advice: know your audience and cut to the chase, I would rather this be a 1 hour audio book full of useful advice and tips vs. 4 hours of the same stuff just worded differently and repeated over and over.

Not a whole lot here to gain

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book might be for people who have little to no experience in the business world.

What was most disappointing about Jessica Marks’s story?

The information here was quite basic. And I wonder about the scope. I did not need a tutorial on how to use Windows 7/8. Also, different colored stick notes on a whiteboard? Really? Sounds like a system for my 80 year old father.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narration was fine. The content was not.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
