    Reads like a why more than a how. Reads like it was written to convince someone sitting on the fence that they can and should do it rather than what I was looking for, which was how. It’s very broad, which I guess makes it more broadly appealing. It focuses on debt, to which I cannot relate because I have none. It’s not a bad read and has many good things to say. I did take away a few nuggets but I’ll keep looking for a read that’s more of a practical, nuts-and-bolts how-to, which this is not.

    Worth a read, but not exactly a 'roadmap to create a side business' (the sub-title). While the book has its inspirational moments, it's more like practical wisdom and life lessons from a guy whose been through his share of ups and downs as he started and grew his side business. Much of the author's advice would apply to anyone, whether self-employed as a freelancer or not. Also, this book is a case study for the life changing principles taught by Dave Ramsey. Why 4 stars and not 5? Precisely beca Worth a read, but not exactly a 'roadmap to create a side business' (the sub-title).

    Mostly the personal story of a guy who realized his career and general consumer lifestyle were not leading to happiness. So he started doing wedding photography on the side and eventually made that their business. I didn't really see much to learn here in terms of the roadmap. He followed Dave Ramsey to begin with, then bought lots of business books. Then he and his wife (who is only mentioned in the business infrequently) worked part time while their built their reputation and worked their way Mostly the personal story of a guy who realized his career and general consumer lifestyle were not leading to happiness. So he started doing wedding photography on the side and eventually made that their business. I didn't really see much to learn here in terms of the roadmap. He followed Dave Ramsey to begin with, then bought lots of business books. Then he and his wife (who is only mentioned in the business infrequently) worked part time while their built their reputation and worked their way into the wedding industry. Then they moved to just that job, and decided to move to a different city and homeschool and coach other people who want a business, and then find other ways to make money from his journey. I thought it was a bit ironic that his business depends on just the kind of spending that he had learned to avoid, and that although they talked about their unique style of photography, they also talked about building business courtesy referrals to and from other photographers (because of schedule and location issues) without any qualms.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I actually picked up this book thinking it was about freelance writing. It is not, but so much more! Though he doesn't use the term, this is a FIRE book. Pugliese is humble and honest, which will probably help many follow his path to freedom, and open about his personal journey. The layout of this book into phases makes it a great life planning tool that anyone can follow, no matter where they are on their financial journey. Full of practical ideas.

    Interesting memoir at the beginning about Vincent and his wife's path to financial independence. The second half is something else. The second half is broken into five parts and has more of the tone of self-help book. Interesting memoir at the beginning about Vincent and his wife's path to financial independence.

    The content is detailed for readers to understand that the entire process to freedom is certainly not an overnight thing. Easy to read, too.

    A quick read, written for those who want to get ahead and see a side business as the vehicle to take them forward. If I'd been just starting out, I'd have enjoyed the book more.

    This book talks about how the author overcome debt and steps he followed in doing it. This also gives an idea about freelancing and the liberation that financial freedom gives you. I really loved the concept and would love to freelance although my field of interest is different from that of the author the basic concept remains the same. So I am gonna end my review by saying that this book can help anyone interested in becoming a freelancer get an idea of how to achieve it.

Oh the 4 star review is because I felt the book could have been more brief it felt a bit stretched.
