Ah, Life Without Jobs: How to Make Great Money from What You Already Know has finally come to life. I didn’t know how much I was dependent on technology until I tried to publish my eBook. The eBook cover design took much longer and a lot more thinking than I thought. At the end, my web designer friend, Tony Silveira, came to the rescue and designed it for me as the publishers wanted it.
The formatting from Word document to an acceptable format was another hurdle. Again I had to turn to a professional who knew how to do it right.
Although both Amazon and SmashWords accepted the format, I am waiting for Barnes and Noble, Apple and other publishers to approve the book for sale on their bookstores.
My hope is that the Life Without Jobs eBook will enable as many people as possible to start working for themselves. The book is a step by step guide to start a home based business without investing any money at all. It deals with all aspects of working for yourself: from coming up with a good business idea, the registration process, finances, goal setting and equally important, looking after your health and happiness.
The Next Project
I am working on my second eBook, Tough Times: How to live for less and be happy. This book deals with the difficult financial issues and choices that most of us are faced with in today’s uncertain economy around the globe. It gives practical advice on day to day expenses and financial planning.
