Decent - motivational but some of the concepts seem to contradict each other. Also, I'm not into "manifestation." I think this book is really for wealthy women who want to start a business (not that you can't do that if you're not rich and white, this one is just focused on that population). Also - this felt like a grab for more money and sales by the author - a lot of the information was vague, which she discusses is because she wants people to purchase her $2000 boot camp.

I have been following this author for a while and joined her Money Mindset Bootcamp not sure what I was getting into. However, over the last two years I have learned that what she teaches about money mindset is absolutely true. This book is great if you are an entrepreneur, particularly female. And I would say it is good for anyone at any stage in their game. There is sound advice on how to handle what might feel like sticky situations - including scripts to help. Denise also shares her own ...more

I really enjoy the concept of the Chillpreneur, and for anyone who isn't already familiar with Denises' work & identifies with being both lazy AND ambitious, I highly recommend this book! I rate it 3 stars, however, because as someone who has read her other books and follows her work, I felt that at least half of the material had been repeated before, and I was hoping for more new material. Overall, I think this book is essential to the modern entrepreneur who wants to ditch the "hustle" and ...more

I listened to Chilpreneur on audiobook after it was recommended multiple times in a small business owners' group I am in. WOW. I recommend this highly to all budding entrepreneurs--particularly female entrepreneurs--out there! I loved Denise Thomas' practical advice and know I will revisit this book again in the future. There was so much great advice that my mind could not possibly retain it all.

Love the audiobook!

Get your CHILL "on" in life and biz. An awesome read

Hustling so hard you burn your light out has never appealed to me as a particularly awesome way to live. Yet, a high octane lifestyle celebrating sleep deprivation (come on people when I get a solid 7 hours sleep I feel like I’ve won the lottery, my energy is SEXY, and I’m a better human to my people), like some screwy badge of honour is often what is pushed upon folk as the only way to “get after it,” and get what you want out of life.

Overall I found the book had some valuable tips but there were a few aspects that I didn't like as much. I think a more accurate title for the book would be Money Mindset Advice for Female Entrepreneurs. As a wellness coach and personal trainer who is looking to market himself I found the mindset advice and tips useful. It's important to value what you do, charge a fair rate (fair to you and your clients) and not be afraid to make money using your skills. I didn't know that this was written ...more

Ok, so I tried to finish this but in the end I just couldn't. I really want to believe the hype about DDT but I don't. She is wildly successful because she sells an idea that everyone can achieve success without stress and overwork. Although she may live like that now, she couldn't be where she is without the things that made her and that includes stress and overworking.

If you believe her message then this book is a fun and easy read with lots of interesting food for thought and instagrammable

- Not a bad book...Quick and easy...Denise Duffield Thomas usually has a succinct, casual style.
- There are a few good strategies in there, but if you are expecting in-depth tips about execution or instructions on how to run your business, this book isn't it.
- I think I actually prefer her previous book, actually, "Lucky B and how to life a first class life", as there were more tips and tricks in there that I found useful.

Really loved this book (listened to it rather than read it). Loved the philosophy of it, which really aligns with the way I try to run my business; loved the motivation behind continuing to do so; loved the simplicity of her marketing strategy! A worthwhile read or listen for any woman in business for herself.

This book definitely focuses more on mindset than actionable advice, however she does include things like scripts you can use on customers if you are increasing your prices which I thought were very helpful. Listened as an audiobook and she is very motivational.

Went in to this one skeptical- as I’ve read a lot of books on being an entrepreneur. This one surprised me with not only the money mindset stuff but tangible scripts and examples! Love how she openly talks about money with no shame. I’d highly recommend it!

I was already a huge fan of Denise Duffield-Thomas’s before reading this book, just FYI.

Chillpreneur is the permission slip you’ve been waiting for to run your business smarter, not harder by using your natural strengths and doing what you can with what you’ve got.

Part practical tips for running a thriving business without burning out and part deep, powerful insights into why success often feels uncomfortable and unattainable for those of the feminine persuasion, this quick inspiring read will

A surprisingly chill guide to running your business and achieving your dreams. I appreciate Denise's perspective and simple steps to doing things the easy way.
Sampada Chaudhari
Denise’s new book Chillpreneur is a fascinating read. It has rewired my thinking and set straight my perspective on business, sales, hiring and more. In a tell-it-like-it-is style packed with humour, Denise doles out precious nuggets of advice to women in business. She not only encourages you to take the path of least resistance, but she also shows you how to walk that path.

What I loved most was Denise's optimism and her attitude of seeing a silver lining in everything. Love how she explains

DDT offers a great alternative mindset to all of the business books that swear you've gotta hustle 24/7 and get up at 5 am to achieve success.
