The Barefoot Executive: The Ultimate Guide for Being Your Own Boss & Achieving Financial Freedom by Carrie Wilkerson - Book #Review

My decision to stay at home with my children was purely for medical reasons. We knew things would be tight financially, but it was the best decision for us. Since taking that leap I have grown as a Mother and started to think of myself as a business woman with talents and skills I can utilize from home.

I read The Barefoot Executive: The Ultimate Guide for Being Your Own Boss & Achieving Financial Freedom, with a pen and paper handy since it applies to people like me. I know from the demographic of readers here on my blog, many of you are also Stay-at-Home-Moms or dream of working from home. This book not only goes through some of the fears and concerns of being your own boss, but also gives advice on how to be successful.

Yes, even in social media the business building tips listed in this book can be utilized for greater revenue and success.

Carrie Wilkerson not only makes it sound easy, but she is running her own successful seven figure business from home as proof that her advice works. As my husband always tells me, take advice from successful people and surround yourself with smarter resources. I would say that the author qualifies.

The book includes:

  • A Road map of action broken down by chapters, From myths, mistakes, methods, models and the marketplace.
  • Real Case Studies
  • Inspirational Quotes
  • Common Problems
  • Links to online videos
  • Great Tips and ideas to think about
A simple and straightforward read sure to get you thinking. This book helped me to feel re-energized about building and creating my own brand. Especially in our current economy it isn't good enough to sit back and rely on your history or tenure. As a Mom my work reality has changed and books like this can supply some great ideas and focus to help nudge me along the way. It also gave me some new ideas for marketing my blog and skills.

I do recommend giving The Barefoot Executive a read. You have so much to gain.
