Publisher's summary

In 2006, while working in a full-time job, James Schramko wrote this in a notebook:

My goals: Create automated income so that I am independently wealthy and enjoy my life passionately.

Within three years, he’d built his own business and achieved those goals. At this point he set about helping his coaching clients do the same. Leveraging his knowledge and experience, they were able to make more money while reducing their work hours significantly.

This freed them up to spend more time living.

It’s easy to think working less and making more is something available only to a blessed few. James has proven over and over again this is not the case. All you require is:

  • An open mind
  • The ability to focus on what’s important
  • An understanding of business models
  • A willingness to challenge your assumptions

Work Less, Make More will break down all the barriers standing between you and the above. It will teach you how to effectively leverage yourself, your team, and your business via:

  • Increasing your personal effectiveness
  • Planning and goal setting
  • Learning focus and the power of 64:4
  • Building a team
  • Creating an offer that converts
  • Leveraging the profit formula to boost cash flow
  • Understanding the importance of customer lifetime value
  • Choosing the right business mode
  • Removing compromise from your life

This audiobook is for you if you are:

  • A business owner (big or small)
  • Currently in a job with a hard ceiling on how much you can earn
  • Overworked and underpaid
  • Stressed out and missing out on precious time with family and friends.

If you want to build a business that gives you financial peace of mind while allowing you to enjoy life now, not later...Work Less, Make More will get you on your way. It will help ensure the business you're building will work for you, not the other way around.

Critic reviews

"Work Less, Make More is a dense delivery of solid systems and sane advice. It's not 80/20, it's 80/20 squared. Every few pages, James punches you in the face with an instantly actionable hack." (Perry Marshall, author of 80/20 Sales & Marketing, Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords, and Evolution 2.0)

Informative and Insightful

This book was very helpful as a new entrepreneur learning how to set my business, team and myself up for success. Learning my EHR helps me choose the business I accept to make sure I am effective and increase sales.

This book is for everybody, not just for salesmen

Before I bought this audiobook I read a review on audible mentioning that this is a book just for salespeople... First of all, that is not true. Let's say if you get nothing more from this book other than how to validate your idea (which is just one chapter) then you're better off than most people with a full-time job. Then there is the 'business model' chapter, which found very good in terms of structuring pricing so that you won't have to work on selling each month, you still have to do it but I understand now why the recurring model is better and less anxiety-producing (this was a problem for me, struggling to bring in sales each month). I am a small business owner and as I grow I will revisit the book and apply different things. The author said something along the lines of 'as entrepreneurs grow their mindset changes', I think that is very true since a beginner has a total set of problems compared to an advanced business person. It's not that an advanced business person doesn't have any problems, they do, but way different and I imagine more complex.

The one book for entrepreneurs

This book was such a pleasant surprise. I was expecting the usual male-oriented, sales funnel, go big or go home type book for entrepreneurs. Instead, I discovered easy steps to take to increase my revenue and stop wasting time (and money). If you are an entrepreneur with the time and money to read only one book, this is it.

It’s a good read...

Thought I was going to find more in it cutting time for the solo entrepreneur.

It seemed like another outsourcing book with a focus on your actual hourly rate or EHR.

While it’s not what I was looking for it did offer a lot of value in other places.

Knowing what I know now, I would have still picked up the book.
