The book Work Less Make More by James Schramko is a wakeup call to any of us caught in a job or business that may appear to be going well, but in truth is preventing us from living a free and fulfilling life.
Through his personal story the author explains how it’s possible for anyone, with the right attitude, to follow in his footsteps and build a multimillion dollar business while still having time for doing the things they enjoy.
This book does not contain motivational fluff. Each chapter sets out practical strategies for building a business while avoiding the traps of work-overload, time-poverty and burnout. The information is organised well and straight-to-the-point. The summary of “Actionitems“at the end of each chapter makes the author’s advice easy to review and implement.
It would be good if there was more in-depth discussion of some points. However I guess that’s not the purpose for which this book was written. It’s clear that this is not meant to be another how-to book offering "good ideas" and academic theory. Rather I see it as a guidebook or blueprint (of sorts) that shows us how to build a successful business AND lifestyle, based on the author’s real life experience.
If you are running your own business or would like to be, you probably need this book.
This book is presented in such a logical, organised way making it very readable and easy to follow. It seemed like I was having a conversation with James and he was answering each of my questions. Covering basics with some great insights then action steps at the end of each chapter this book provides some ideas which are easily applied. I found myself highlighting the items "I must do". Positively inspirational !! Thank You James - Jim Knott
What a great book. Easy to understand with great actionitems at the end of each chapter. With just the action steps in this book, you will be able to improve your business regardless of it being online or traditional
When I think of James I think "Get to the point" he has a super sharp business mind honed over several decades that quickly finds what you should be doing to improve your business and lifestyle. This book is a no fluff nice read in an afternoon length, and covers a lot of easy to understand and action advice to become more effective with actionitems at the end of each chapter.
Will recommend to any business owner looking to increase how much they earn and have more time for a life outside of their business.
