Book Cover of Gretchen Roberts' e-Book
Last fall, Gretchen Roberts
reached out and asked if a number of folks could review her e-book Full-Time Income in Part-Time Hours: 22 Secrets to Writing Success in Under 40 Hours a Week
. I immediately agreed because, well, I wanted some tips to improve my work habits.
For three years and with three kids, I’ve worked full-time as a writer. I read the book, learned some great tips, many of which I immediately did not
put into practice. So more than six months later, I’m writing a review of a book that I enjoyed immensely (Gretchen’s language and tips are straight-forward and her writing approachable) but couldn’t find the time to write a review about. That’s right. But that’s why I want you to do what I didn’t do: read the book and take action
But Gretchen’s book has a lot of information packed into it! Starting with the nuts and bolts, she takes a reader through the different ways you can make full-time wages while working part-time. She gives tips for time, money and client management. Some tips I realized I was already doing; others I’m working to implement (“don’t over-commit” is ringing in my ears!).
Gretchen has been there and has made the best of it. She has the kids and she could have the excuses. But she gets it done and, in her book, tells you how.
Best of all, if your approach might be different from hers, she takes that into consideration. At the end of the book, she has include tales from others doing the same as she is. Some have kids while others have different demands.
Gretchen’s book is a great resource for those wanting to learn how to juggle it all. So, as I wrote above, do as I read, not as I did.
The PDF advanced review copy I read was provided by Gretchen Roberts for the purposes of this review. With apologies to Gretchen Roberts for the review not being as timely as I had hoped.
