Publisher's Summary

Is it possible to make a living while giving away your work for free Online? Yes.

Is it hard? Yes.

Is it worth it? Absolutely.

After 15 years stuck behind a desk in the software industry, Bob Clagett walked away from a well-paying, stable job to make the things he was interested in and show the world how to make them, too. His company, I Like to Make Stuff, started as a hobby but quickly grew into a passion project.

In "Making Time", Bob recounts his history and build-up to becoming a full-time content creator, and shares his process, experiences, and mistakes from his first two years of self-employment. The audiobook covers topics from income streams to emotional exhaustion as well as Bob's thoughts on purpose and responsibility.

Extremely enjoyable listen and highly motivational

Excellent narration from a down-to-earth content creator. I've been following Bob's YouTube series and I'm glad I snagged this audiobook. I enjoyed hearing about his background and what it took to make YouTube content full time. It's motivational no matter what your interests are. Highly recommend!

Great little book

Listened to this start-to-finish in one car trip. As someone who writes for a living and is a woodworker as a hobbyist, I think this book is a great accomplishment.

Given the length of the book, this isn’t a comprehensive guide on becoming a full-time maker or content creator, nor does it purport to be. It has a good balance of helpful information for makers and personal backstory of the author. Well done!

Short but great!

This isn't a step by step, how you make a YouTube channel book. This is a how you make time to do what you want to do kind of book. And what I mean is Bob tells you what he had to do to overcome fears, distractions, and disorganization to make his channel/brand. The book is shorter than some podcasts I listen to, but I will definitely be re-listening to it soon. Chapter 15 really hit home with me.

Great audio book

Just like Bob's videos, this audio book is outstanding. His simple no-nonsense way of explaining how he built his business is just as compelling as his video content.
