Interesting ideas for self employment

I had hoped to find my dream career even though I am a disabled woman facing retirement. But this good gave some general great ideas if you are looking at stepping out on your own and you have the ability to take the right steps from the beginning. Each job is broken down into what skills you need, what education you might need, tools you will need up front, licensing,how to find perspective clients and what kind of money you should expect to make as well as how and when you will get paid. Some gigs will pay cash or check at time of service, others you will invoice and wait for payments.

Quite educational, the narrator's voice kept me interested even when getting into the nitty-gritty of a job that sounded unappealing to me from the get go.

How to be Your Own Boss

As with many of these types of books, they are giving advice on how to become your own boss, or entrepreneur. The book is really about how to get off the ground in a variety of self-promotional or self-paced careers that are not done from behind a desk. The book gives information on how this is done in each state and who to contact to get further information. It is not about resting on one's laurels but rather the work that would go into establishing oneself in a variety of careers.

The book gives quite a lot of ideas. I do feel that it's possible this information might be easier to take in in written form due to format and content of the book. The performance of the narrator is also less of a factor as this is not a dramatic book, even in the nonfiction sense where stories might be told. It is very informational. Overall, a good resource.

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review and am leaving the review willingly.

Good practical information

If you are thinking about starting your own business, this is a do not miss book. It has several realistic ideas about what you might be able to do, what you will need to get started, how much money you could make and some things you need to know. It is a well researched book with a good amount of information. Several interesting possibilities! Also, the narration is easy to listen to very well done. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Earn No Matter What

What a SMART audiobook!

I honestly didn't know what to expect when I first got this audiobook- boy was I pleasantly surprised!

This is a very thorough and detailed audiobook. Even though I wasn't necessarily interested in EVERY job presented in the book, I nevertheless listened to all of them because the information was so interesting and well-presented. The author did a great job detailing the many things someone should consider before embarking on a particular job.

The author describes the skills and training needed for each job, the necessary equipment, the states that require a license, how much you'll earn and the way you'll be paid (cash, check, invoices, etc.), how to find customers/clients, and the down sides to each job.

This book gave me ideas for jobs that I've never considered, such as being a sign language translator/interpreter, a taxidermist, a well-digger, an underwater logger, a limo driver, an aquarium manager, a crime scene cleanup person and a worm harvester, to name a few.

The narrator had a pleasant voice, and he presented the material in a highly engaging manner.

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Earning Without Being Employed

This book is a great source of information. Jeff Evarts has done the research and has provided information on 35 possible job options that you can look into. Information includes background or skills needed, certifications, expenses and potential income. It is not the complete package for each job, but it certainly is a great starting point.

Luke Rounda did a great job with the narration. Very clear and easy to listen to.

Fantastic Ideas

I am a sales manager at a hotel and although I am not looking for a new way to be employed I am always looking for new hobbies and things to learn. When I saw this book I wasn't 100% sure it would be what I was wanting it to be or not but I kept going back to it. I am glad I did!

This is a VERY detailed booked. Some of the chapters were not points of interest for me but I still listened to each one because the knowledge this book gives you is immense! Its alot to take in. I do recommend have a notebook handy when you read. It is very educational on different jobs you can start on the side and build up to. The equipment you need before you start and how to save so that you don't spend all your money and then end up not liking it. The ideas are very original. I honestly wouldn't have thought of any of these except 1! It gives you details such as if you need a licence and if you do what states require it. I am actually interested in learning more about how to do several of the things in this book just to know how to do them because they sounds like alot of fun! The narrator kept my attention the entire time and I loved his voice! It was much better than I expected, I thought it would be very boring because I didn't need the content but I was very wrong.

Even if you are not in the market for a new job but want to learn about hobbies that could be useful one day def check this out! If you are in the market this is a must have! Its a quick detailed listen and you wont regret this purchase!

I requested and was given this audiobook complimentary at my request and have voluntarily left this review with my honest opinion.
