Publisher's Summary

Feeling burned out by your business? Sick of the "hustle and grind" culture of your industry? There's a better way! Get over your perfectionism and embrace the flow of the chillpreneur.

Denise Duffield-Thomas, money mindset coach and best-selling author, will show you how with her trademark humor and down-to-earth wisdom. In this book, she shares invaluable business advice and counter-intuitive millionaire mindset lessons (no blood, sweat, or tears necessary) which will set you on the path of abundance - without all the hard work.

You'll discover how to find the business model that works perfectly for your personality, learn about key concepts - such as the golden goose and the keyless life - to help you work less and earn more, and become a marketing pro without feeling like a sleazy car salesman. Plus, Denise talks you through the smaller - but no less important - details of being an entrepreneur, including how to deal with awkward money situations and find the most effective ways to price your offers.

Full of reassuring and practical advice, Chillpreneur challenges the old, boring assumptions of what it takes to create success in business, so you can create financial independence with ease and grace.

Medicore

I was pretty disappointed with this one given all the good ratings. I managed to make it throw about 2/3 of the book before the bit on randomness of billing and changing costs was the final straw and I stopped there. To me, this book had the feel of someone who's gotten fairly lucky and done well financially but cant quite articulate the specifics as to how to replicate it for others. Or maybe the author has been successful in a certain niche but it's one that customers are already feeling hopeful to want to believe in - 'you dont have to work hard, you deserve success, you're a powerful force and and the universe should recognize you, ...'. Sort of a mix of manifesting success, sending out positive vibrations to the universe, ignore detractors, and live your passion. If you're a fan of Gwyneth Paltrow and goop, this is probably in your wheelhouse. My main take-aways are that its possible to be successful without having significant planning and strategy right out of the gate, you may need to try a bunch of different avenues before finding something that works for you, and that there's probably more people just figuring it out as they go than you realize.

For Women Mainly

The book talks about some good points and provides some good reality checks. But its just so women centric. I wish i had know that before purchasing it. The author constantly refers and related to women which is all good, its her niche. But as a guy, I dont feel included at all. So if ur a woman looking to hone ur entreprenurial skills. This is the book for you, for men.. eeh. Not so much.

Fun, smart book from a multimillionaire

I've been a fan of the author's books and blog for a while and this one doesn't disappoint, in fact it is even more entertaining and high quality than her last two! She's a brilliant solo-preneur who has a smart, fun approach to making and handling making money in business. Jump onboard, you won't regret it and you'll learn a lot, stuff that if you miss it, you'll lose out on great opportunities in life and business!

Love her & book, but can't access any bonus stuff

Denise is charming and smart and I love listening to her advice and information. My frustration is that I couldn't access the bonus material which I was exited about. She gives a link that then sends you to a page where the bonus outline and material links are off to the far left on the page and are unreadable and unclickable. I am now listening to Lucky Bitch Get Rich and I love this book so far too. But yet again, the link she gave sends you to a page that asks for your email and promises to send the bonus material to download, which I never received. I tried it on my phone and I was able to get to the download button, but when you click it, nothing happens. THEN I reached out to her team just simply asking for help to receive the bonuses, and no response. I feel like I could benefit so much from the additional, printed material as a companion since I am listening, not actually reading. Hoping they eventually reach out to me.

I’m Inspired!

I have contemplated chasing my entrepreneurial dreams for years and was looking for some inspiration to help ignite my true passion. This book was it! So many of the author’s words have been my exact thoughts or perspectives on entrepreneurship and I am kicking myself for not just going for it sooner! As an educated woman in the workforce, I have often just settled for what was given to me as far as raises and promotions despite my hard work and commitment. Had I put half of my energy into my own business, I believe that I would be extremely successful now.
I rated the book four stars because it isn’t rocket science and much of it was information that I already knew. However, for an analytical introvert with big dreams like myself, listening to this book really helped me put things in perspective to start executing plans which is exactly what I needed.
The parts of the book that resonated most to me were the author’s relaxed style, work experiences, encouragement, and quotes. My favorite quote was “not sharing your gifts or talents is selfish!”
I listened to this book in two days so if you have a relaxed but determined personality like me then you will probably enjoy this book.

Authentic and packed full with relevant guidance

This is my first experience with Denise’s work. I’m so pleased with the overflow of usable information and in my opinion, zero fluff. I highly recommend this book to those seeking a mindset shift with authentic guidance they can put into action.

The best book you can buy if you’re a woman w/an online business!

I cannot say enough positive things about this book. I have been stalled in my online business for 2-3 years, and I have made more progress in the week since listening to this book than in all that time. She touches on all the common things that were getting me stuck that I couldn’t even articulate myself. So many useful tips and strategies, in addition to way she works to adjust your mindset about money, yourself, your worth. Officially, it’s now my favorite business book.

One of the best books I’ve ever read for women in business!

Denise DT is a breath of fresh air in a world where women feel like they have to hustle and burn out in order to achieve success. She is so authentic and fun to listen to, and offers tons of valuable content and tools to help grow a business. I’ve listened to the audiobook multiple times and get something new each time. I also got the hard copy to systematically work through her processes and suggestions. If I could only have one business resource book, this would be the one.
