How to Work for Yourself by Bryan Cohen

The official title?  How to Work for Yourself: 100 Ways to Make the Time, Energy and Priorities to Start a Business, Book or Blog.

Why did I read it?  It was free on my Kindle (that I got for Christmas and am in 100% love with.  I love it!)

Am I glad I read it?  Surprisingly, yes.

It was an early morning.  1:00 am.  I couldn't fall asleep and was getting really annoyed.  I pulled out my new new source of happiness...and browsed through the free books.  I settled on this.  And I found myself more motivated.  Yea!  Success.  The truth is, I have been sitting on a book draft for quite some time.  Quite. Some. Time.  I have recently come to realize that I am afraid to move forward.  I have 1 last step...well, maybe a couple...and I just can't bring myself to do it.  And, I do believe it's because I am afraid that this baby of mine will be rejected over and over and over again.

This little e-book helped me feel like I could actually do it.  And I will.  What I enjoyed about this read was that it looked at the whole person...if you want to get something big done, you need to prioritize and take care of the whole picture -- mind, body, spirit, and put in the work and time to build whatever it is you want to create.

Since reading this (which took about an hour or so), I have been working on my book again.  And, since it's been so long since I touched it, I'm finding it will take me some more time because I have to reread, re-organize, etc.  But that's ok.  I feel like I'm in it again.

So, thank you Bryan Cohen.  You make $0 on me as I read your book, but you have given me motivation to move forward with something that is important to me and that could potentially reach and help others.  You will be rewarded in full...Karma's on your side brother.
