    Not good Feels like reading a bunch of blog entries, like when it’s getting interesting the author switches to another topic... weird and not in a good way.

    Here's an idea: stop working for the man and start a freedom business. You should consider starting your own business anyway, because where else are you going to work? But you don't want to start a business that's like having another job - maybe even worse, because you can't just clock out at five and assume someone will pick up where you left off. Start a Freedom Business describes businesses you can start that allow you plenty of free time to pursue your other interests.

Start a Freedom Business describes businesses you can start that allow you plenty of free time to pursue your other interests. Like a tasty meal from a crock pot, you can set it and forget. I like the idea of it, but a lot of these ideas sound like wishful thinking, e.g. "Learn how to program computers and build iPhone apps for a living." I didn't realize it was so easy!

    Disappointing. The first 40% is general business waffle and the remaining 60% consist of slightly more specific Freedom Business waffle interspersed with a few 'interviews' with people who have set up such businesses. It doesn't really go into the 'how to', though, and I learned nothing from it. Disappointing.

    A good overview of some business start-up basics for those of us who aren’t familiar.

    I think this is an excellent book for the rookie entrepreneur. Colin makes the case for why a freedom business is important, then walks you through various possibilities, giving you resources every step of the way. Some of the tech advice is a little dated, but only because we keep iterating through new software and hardware possibilities so quickly. As someone who has had both traditional brick-and-mortar businesses and location-independent ones, I can tell you I very much prefer the latter.

He also includes some profiles of other location-independent types, which I think really adds value to this book, even if I don't necessarily identify with them.

The book primarily hinges on how to start and run a business without exchanging your life to make more money. On the contrary, the book advocates for using the online platform to create a business and a living that will free up your time. The book covers several topics that include explaining the meaning of a `freedom business,' the benefits of starting one and how to create one. The book also offers valuable insights into the mindset required to succeed in a `freedom business.' Other topics I found insightful include various business models that allow for a free life, accompanied by interviews with entrepreneurs who have succeeded in building freedom businesses. This is a great book for those who are looking to get started with online businesses. While it does not offer a systematic approach or intricacies on building the business itself, it enables you to start thinking creatively. However, the book is very basic and may not be very helpful for people who are already running online businesses. The book also leans too much on digital businesses and freelancing and may not appeal to those who are looking for alternative forms of `freedom businesses.'

    As someone that runs many "Freedom" businesses, I was excited to read this book. Unfortunately, I became too distracted by the many typos and grammatical errors. If the errors are corrected in a future edition, I'd add another star to my rating. Putting grammatical errors aside, this would be a good primer for anyone interested in starting a web based business. If writing, blogging, consulting, or designing are your strengths, this book will give you ideas for starting a business you can run from As someone that runs many "Freedom" businesses, I was excited to read this book.

Putting grammatical errors aside, this would be a good primer for anyone interested in starting a web based business. If writing, blogging, consulting, or designing are your strengths, this book will give you ideas for starting a business you can run from anywhere. If you want to run something other than a digital services company, you'll find the advice wanting.

    I've read Collin's blog and he writes well and inspires a lot of people. What he doesn't seem to have is enough practical knowledge to actually instruct someone to start a "freedom business" outside of general high level platitudes and "this is the software I use to write this book..." It's cheap and somewhat inspiring to know he's made a success of himself but I didn't come away feeling like I'd learned anything.

    The book is so so... There are nice tips, but this is not the book which will give you deep understanding of the business or will give some very rare and useful tips. In general yes - it gives overview and for the beginner - maybe it is a good place to start. But if you read some other similar books - will be mostly waste of time. Colin is a great guy and writes in a easy to read style, but I do miss more detailed info in the books.

    Enjoyed reading this e-book, as I typically do with anything by Colin Wright. Inspiring and at times thought-provoking. Read it in bits and pieces, which could be the reason I'm not overwhelmed with excitement about it, but certainly worth the read. Very much looking forward to his other books. Do wish this one had gone through another round of editing... Enjoyed reading this e-book, as I typically do with anything by Colin Wright. Inspiring and at times thought-provoking.

    Good intro material for someone who wants to get to know about these kind of "Freedom Business", and don't know much about business as a whole. Also liked the first part of the book, which is inspiring.

    Overall a disappointment, but at least it was cheap. I would recommend it only to anyone absolutely new in the field of entrepreneurship. Not many actionable suggestions, very light on how to come up with new, profitable ideas (this is a common thread of all the books like this, apparently).

    Absolutely worth the 99 cents. Quick read, interesting interviews with successful start ups and plenty of good resources for people just getting started on a freedom business.

    Short, encouraging, useful. An expedient read and worthwhile especially as a catalyst for further reading into entrepreneurship.

    Very practical. Very down-to-earth. Very direct. Perfect as a basic starting guide to a freedom business or business in general.

    I am not sure why I keep reading "business" books by people who have been in business a shorter amount of time that they were in high school and college.

    Very helpful and inspiring. Been wanting to start my own Freedom Business ever since I started reading about lifestyle design, and this one helps a lot.

    Not your typical "business book" that should belong in the self help section. This book has actual information that--if put to use--could help you start a freedom business.
