Despite some now dated technological references, this book offered some pretty good tips. The work less make more concept isn't just based on money but also on personal satisfaction with life in general.

I really liked the idea of "duplicating," or teaching your employees to do what you do to 1) help you increase productivity and 2) prepare them for a promotion.

The book is full of questionnaires to help guide readers through how to make realistic changes in how you work.

Overall I would recommend

I didn't even really want to read this book, but I needed an audiobook and my options were limited, so I impulsively added it to my overdrive cart and I am so glad I did. You know those books that you will remember reading for the rest of your life? This will be one of them for me. While a lot of the book focuses on people who are entrepreneurs, there are so many amazing tips and lessons for the everyday working individual. I found it so empowering, so much so, that I looked up the author to fin ...more

I've listened to the audiobook version of this book during my commute to/from work. One thing that differentiates this book from other "lifestyle design" books is that, as the author reiterates many times, "make more" portion talks about "making more of your life" rather than "merely making more money".

First part focuses on working less, by various tools and methods, such as eliminating, delegating etc. The second part focuses on making more, while working less or better put working effectively

Don't let the main title dissuade you, there is wisdom and insight in this book that can benefit anyone-no matter what stage of life or work area! Although this book is fundamentally about building wealth (Jennifer does a fantastic job early on, in expanding the definition of wealth to include every facet of life not just money); Work Less, Make More refreshingly provides guidance, advice, and practical exercises for creating a more overall fulfilling life. This is a fantastic read for anyone wh ...more

I knew most of the facts, it is just that I am too lazy to implement them:-)

I just listened to this work. This is not the kind of work you listen to in a car while driving. That said that's wwhat I did and got a pretty good overview. But this is an action book and if you want to get the most out of it, you would do well to re-read it and do the exercises.

The author is a success coach. She doesn't hold back in trying to help. She is the epitome of enthusiasm.

I intend to read it again; this time the right way.

Get a notepad ready and use this book as a workbook.

I listened to this as a audiobook on overdrive and was pleasantly surprised. I plan to reread this one (a rare task for me). I found the advice to be helpful even though I do not work in the business world. I appreciated that the advice is not a repeat of what I have heard before in other self-help books.

Yada yada yada. Blah blah blah. Not much of a review, eh? I don't completely agree with her approach. There are certainly bits and pieces of organizational strategy I can utilize but being a creative, most of what she had to say, left me apathetic.

Nothing really new to me in this, but the delivery was excellent. The author's years of experience as a coach really shine through.

I stopped reading it halfway because it seemed to be mostly for business owners or high management - not very applicable to me.

Listened to this book: was interesting; would have preferred more examples of how to use techniques in the real world.

Great advice. However it's not effective unless you dive into all if the exercises that take a lot if time.
