Around 2008 I allowed James to access my PC remotely to work out some problems I was having with some website design software. He fixed it ... for free. A few months later he was introduced at a Seminar in Manly, Australia and as I was there I was able to thank him personally. I have followed his success and progress (evolution) from this past association with him. Since then he has obviously risen to prominence, as have many in internet based businesses. But in my opinion James is different. His experience and resultant success was learned in the real world so his online success has a solid foundation few others have, as well as a genuine Aussie honesty when it comes to value for investment. If there were a ladder of success and trust in this industry James would be on the top rung, with a (very) few others a rung or two below; then with a big gap to the next group of entrepreneurs. This book is a testament to his values and the reasons for the respect he has. Funnily enough he scares me. I fear his business sense is beyond me; and the time I have to commit to the type of coaching he offers is just not there, (although there are SO many free "gems" you get from just being on his email list). So I continue to whittle away at other more simple strategies for smaller scale successes while hoping to initiate some of the great wisdom in this book into my own little forays on the internet. Thank you for publishing this great "read" James so I can take some of its advice and improve the way I am doing things.
It's hard not to say good things about James S. I trust so few people in this internet marketing space, rarely do I leave reviews because I just don't want to put my name to anything slightly dubious. But James isn't like that. He is straight to the point, but in a implementable way. And his work doesn't stop with one book, like many overnight marketers. He has a huge brand behind him built on integrity and respect. If you read this book, and it doesn't resonate with you, you should probably avoid any time of onlinebusiness future, because if James can't get you on the track to a good $100K or beyond, pretty much no one will be able to :)
James Schramko is a fantastic onlinebusiness mentor and role model. For many years James has provided me with significant inspiration and valuable knowledge for my own onlinebusinesses, 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 onlinebusiness journey take the time to invest in this very practical, honest, no fluff approach to making money and building successful onlinebusinesses.
Having had an onlinebusiness 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 onlinebusiness or fine tune their existing onlinebusiness.
I've been a follower of James Schramko online for more than a few good years now, so when I heard about this book it was a must have for me. And I have to say it definitely did not disappoint. In fact I think for the amount of value you get out of the book it is way too cheap. James is a master at marketing and sharing great advice, and right from the first chapter I gained a tonne of information. No matter at what level of business you are at, this book is a must. Thank you James!
James has a great ability to give you important lessons without the fluff. He uses real Case examples to demonstrate what works and what doesn’t. If you are struggling to build an onlinebusiness this book will give you a path to follow. He is one of the good guys in an industry full of spin doctors.
What a great book. Easy to understand with great action items 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
