I think I’m secretly an entrepreneur stuck in the body of someone who is absolutely disorganized and has no idea how to start a business so I was excited when I was provided the opportunity to read The Barefoot Executive.
Carrie Wilkerson offers the opportunity to live life on your terms. Want to start your workday with e-mail and coffee on the back patio? Want the flexibility of joining your fourth grader on an all-day field trip? Are you ready to take that vacation you’ve been planning for years? Then you have a choice to make, and The Barefoot Executive will help jump-start your transition. You’ll learn:
Your “why.” The most important question. Why do you want to work for yourself?
- What type of business best suits your experience and talents.
- How to stay focused on your goal and avoid distractions.
- Where to find the support that will accelerate your success.
- How to link your business to the right market.
Whether it’s a service, a product, or your insight or expertise, you already have the raw materials necessary to transform your life. Carrie will walk you through the process of building the business you need to achieve the life you want. Her guidance is practical. No philosophical silliness, no theoretical abstractions- just concrete action steps alongside insights from fellow entrepreneurs, interactive exercises, and links to Carrie’s online video coaching segments. It’s the next best thing to working one-on-one with her. The Barefoot Executive will have you energized by the possibilities and embracing the extraordinary life that is well within your reach.
DISCOVER what you already have to offer, how to use it to your advantage, and where to find the people who are eager to buy it. The Barefoot Executive will pull you over the hurdle of uncertainty and get you moving, planning, doing.
This is not a light read. Well, I guess it is if you don’t want the book to help you as a guide to working for yourself.
If you are like me and really would like to be your own boss, this is a book that will take time and note taking!
I took notes to highlight things that Carrie mentioned in the book so that I had an outline of sorts that was personalized for me based on Carrie’s writings.
I think what I loved best about this book is that it applies to all different areas of life. I can apply it to wanting to sell a product or provide a service or to find a niche and better my blogging skills!
I highly recommend that if you are looking for an outline or guide to improving a business, whether it be product, service or blog, that you check out The Barefoot Executive!
