All in by Arlene Dickinson (58)

This is a wonderful book that is fitting for our time because so many of us work at home. Many of us have businesses at home, and some of us write at home and have a freelance business. Either way, when you work this way, your life is very different from anyone who works 9 to 5 and then goes home.

For entrepreneurs, the conventional divisions between work and home, family finances and business finances, don’t exist.  Work, money, and relationships are all connected to us. At one point or another, we’ve all been on the line. We cash in our savings, we talk business at the dinner table, we check our smartphones at the beach, we put our houses up as collateral again and again.

To be an entrepreneur is to pursue a dream with everything you have and all that you are. It can be very scary and yet thrilling and rewarding at the same time.

As an entrepreneur, you lay everything on the line in exchange for the freedom of running your own show and success that is dependent on you. you’re willing to do whatever it takes, but amid the long hours and the hectic pace, are you neglecting your business ‘s most important asset: YOU?!!

To be a successful entrepreneur, you don’t just need to know how to run a business. you need to know how to run your life when the boundary between the personal and the professional has essentially been erased.

While there are countless books on the ins and outs of setting up a company, there hasn’t ever been a book on the unique demands and rewards of entrepreneurship until this book!

I loved the book from start to finish. Being that I am a freelance writer and I work from home, this book is a timely reminder for me not to burn out my candle from both ends.

This book is relevant to anyone who works from home. There are freedoms in this kind of life, but also serious drawbacks. This book will force you to reassess YOUR life in relationship to your business.
