James Schramko is a fantastic online business mentor and role model. For many years James has provided me with significant inspiration and valuable knowledge for my own online businesses, mainly through his podcasts and live events. Finally James has distilled his teachings into an easy to read, practical, and super informative book. About time! I would highly recommend that anybody at any stage of the online business journey take the time to invest in this very practical, honest, no fluff approach to making money and building successful online businesses.
For someone who is a slow reader and does not like long words I found this book really easy to read and understand. James presented simple actionable content that can be put into action now in your life and business. I have had the honor of working with some of the best marketing minds on the planet from the man that did the marketing for Steve Jobs for Apple and Pixar to the celebrity internet marketers that you see in your Facebook newsfeed. James is part of a very small group of people who I listen to and respect because he understands that money is not lifestyle and that relationships and stress free workload is more important at the end of the day. This book can help your workload, your relationships and your income.
Having had an online business for several years and being a keen listener to James podcast on SuperFastBusiness.com I was keen to pick up a copy of "Work Less, Make More" as soon as it was available. Now having read it (and about to re-read it with the accompanying workbook), all I can say is that I wish it was available years ago. Easy to read and implement strategies and case studies make it a must read for anyone interested in starting an online business or fine tune their existing online business.
The introduction in this book alone is worth much more than you'll pay for the entire book. Work less, Make More makes you stop and question the ultimate reason you run your business. With the use of interesting stories and anecdotes, James will make you rethink not only the way you go about business, but your entire life. Easy to read, highly practical, one to pass on to friends after you're done.
I have listened to James' podcasts for several years, and he is the most down-to-earth, uncompromising figure in the space of internet marketing. Nothing gimmicky, hacky, or non-genuine - he is all about the long-game, adding value and being the best at what you do. This book has been a long time coming, I remember James mentioning it a few years ago, and I have looked forward to it ever since. I would challenge anyone to find a more approachable, contactable, genuine practitioner in this market sector. You'll find the contents of this book extremely actionable and practical as it is from James own experience and learnings. A great read, very easy to digest and Kelly has done a wonderful job editing and working with James to get this book out into the world. As cliched as it sounds, do yourself a favour; grab yourself a copy; and put the contents into action.
You'd be mistaken if you judge the value of this book based on its size or its price point.
James distills his journey and uncovers what shifts and actions he took to achieve the lifestyle he enjoys today.
Business can be complex, but it's often the small things that make the biggest impacts. James brings clarity and outlines what areas to look at, and shines a light on things that you may not have considered. It's a super easyread and gives you the actions to take at each chapter.
If you're spending all the hours under the sun trying to build your business and feeling like you have no life, you really need to buy this book.
