Laptop Entrepreneur: How to Make a Living Anywhere in the World

The rise of the internet has revolutionised the workplace. There is a stream of endless information being received, forwarded and collated by people all around the world. This information is becoming more and more crucial to the way we do business, and in some situations, information is the business.

Information, and its value to others is the basis of the business ideas proposed within ‘Laptop Entrepreneur’ by Graham Hunt and Nick Snelling. What this means is that there are ways of creating revenue and profit by doing everything online. The consequences of this are that you are not tied to a particular location; an office or a factory. There is the distinct possibility that you can create a business online, working and developing it at home, in the pub, or even possibly from a beach in the Bahamas.

Before we get carried away with thoughts of an independent working lifestyle, we can look at the value in this book. The opportunities highlighted in this book can be broken down into three main areas: Writing (Blogging, Article writing), Marketing and Domain Management. With 11 main chapters, this book is well written, peppered with hyperlinked sources and websites. This book is representative of how ebooks are being prepared in this connected world, and there is nothing lacking.

By dipping into and reading about a particular part of the laptop entrepreneur lifestyle, the reader is reminded that the only limits to your business is your imagination. There will always be the need to provide a product or a service that someone is prepared to pay for, and online businesses are no different in this respect. The only difference is that you can do all of this whilst watching the sun set over a beach, on a mountain or in your bedroom. You choose.
