I was recently contacted to review “The Barefoot Executive: The Ultimate Guide for Being Your Own Boss and Achieving Financial Freedom” by Carrie Wilkerson.
The title of the book alone is very appealing to me.  Carrie had me at “The Barefoot Executive.”
About the Book:

Don’t Think You Have What It Takes to Run a Business?It’s Time to Reconsider.

For the person who longs to run their business from home, author and highly successful entrepreneur Carrie Wilkerson says it is possible (she doesn’t just say it though, she shows you how). In her new book, The Barefoot Executive, Carrie helps readers of all types understand the necessary ingredients in starting and running a lucrative home-based business. You’ll learn how to reclaim your time, determine your income, and change your lifestyle-all while keeping personal priorities intact.

Successful at running her own seven-figure business from home and being an active speaker on the subject, Carrie demonstrates business models with tables and charts in an easy-to-understand format. Chapters within the book include such subjects as finding a target markets, developing marketing strategies, and brand development. Especially important are the common pitfalls listed to avoid in starting a business from home.

The Barefoot Executive offers the opportunity to live life on your terms with the financial freedom to do it. 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 Executivewill help jumpstart 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.
My thoughts:
For anyone who has ever thought of running their own business from home, who has dreamed of creating income streams for their family…  This book is a guide – an excellent resource book you will want to keep on hand to refer back to many times.  Carrie has achieved success in her endeavors and now she is sharing some of this with all of us.  She shares personal experiences of her own as well as those of others.  She believes anyone can create a lucrative home business.  She believes that you should chase your own dreams – do not chase someone else’s dream.  She urges you to focus on one priority at a time to grow it successfully.  To start with something you know and love.  This book will make you want to get off your behind and get moving.  Start working towards those dreams and ideas you have inside.
