Reviews - What do customers think about No More Mondays: Fire Yourself -- And Other Revolutionary Ways to Discover Your True Calling at Work?
Inspiring with a New Twist! Oct 26, 2008
This book is inspiring offering a new perspective on approaching work rather than just the same old job & career books. He offers a lot of ideas on different ways to think about doing what you love and be able to earn a living doing those things. I've read all of Dan Miller's materials and been part of the 48 Days community. If he were touting MLM and get rich quick, I would have given it about 2 seconds. I've read all the materials only because he offers such valuable insights, tips and tools by which to see things through a new lense, a different perspective rather than the same old, tired career advice of 1000 other books.
I should've bought two copies of 4 Hour Work Week instead Sep 26, 2008
What a dud! Another reviewer that categorized this as milk vs. meat has it right. I'm tempted to take my copy back for a refund. If you want to read a book that has real substance on the topic of self-employment, try Timothy Ferriss's "The Four Hour Workweek." Also, the international bestseller, "The 80/20 Principle" by Richard Koch provides sound insight for tapping into your talents.
Chicken Soup for the Would-Be Entrepreneur Sep 19, 2008
Author Dan Miller offers an inspiring and practical pep talk for those who want to escape the corporate rat race and pursue a path of entrepreneurship. The book title is drawn from the universal feeling of dread that so many workers feel on Sunday night, heading back to the office.
Miller flavors his chapters with a Christian perspective on finding your purpose. Some might find this out of place and a turn-off; I did not. His aim is to stimulate thinking about alternatives to the "conventional" corporate path, paths that can lead to a greater sense of meaning through work and even more money.
What I found best about "No More Mondays" was the concepts of and distinction between linear income and residual income,. The former is swapping hours for dollars. The latter involves developing intellectual property and content which you can sell again and again and again.
If you are considering career changes or are at a career crossroads - or want to see how to view yourself as You, Inc. - I would recommend "No More Mondays."
Inspiring but... Aug 25, 2008
I liked this book. I found it inspiring, motivating. However, there wasn't enough "how to" stuff for me. To get out of the corporate mentality is tough. Some specific guidance would be helpful.
Excellent for those needing a push Aug 6, 2008
I want to specifically address those reviews that say this book is "all milk, no meat." I couldn't disagree more. I think there may be a misunderstanding about the point of this book. The point really is to give you encouragement to look for truly fulfilling work. However if you're extremely unaware of who you are and what brings you joy in life, then I suggest you figure that out first. How can any book tell you, in detail, what your life's work is supposed to be? The best it can do is give you encouragement and a few pointers on where to look or where to start. The rest really is up to you. In the words of the ancient Greeks, "Know Thyself."
