Book Review: 'Job Escape Plan' by Jyotsna Ramachandran

Author Jyotsna Ramachandran coaches people on how to convert their passion into an online business. By admission she never wanted to be an employee again – preferring to be a stay at home mom AND an entrepreneur from home. She started a staff recruitment agency, became a franchisee of a chocolate brand, did freelance web designing, etc. But as she states, ‘I was not a business owner. I had not built in the right systems to automate my businesses. I understood that in order to enjoy true freedom, I needed to create passive income streams. The best way to do that was to start online businesses. I now run a book publishing company called Awesome Life Resources and coach people on how they too can convert their passion into an online business through my website.’

As she states in her introduction, ‘This book is written for the millions of people who want to escape their job and do something more meaningful with their life. The Job Escape Plan is a seven step process that will help you start an online business from home, quit your job and live the life of your dreams. This plan will show you the ways to design your ideal lifestyle and develop the means to achieve that in six months or even less.’

Her index of chapter heading provide a quick survey of her seven step plan: Step 1: Get A Reality Check Why am I doing what I’m doing? Am I enjoying my job or do I feel sick on Monday mornings? Am I using my potential to the fullest? What difference is my life making to this world?
And in this and the following abbreviated chapters she ends with an Action Plan. Step 2: Design Your Dream Lifestyle, Step 3: Get Into The Entrepreneur Mindset, Step 4: Choose The Perfect Niche For You, Step 5: Choose the Best Online Business Platform For You, Step 6: Learn, Research and Study, and finally, Step 7: Start The Business, Grow It & Quit Your Job!

If this little intro doesn’t entice you to make a success out of working from home, they hit those freeways and cell phones and make the noisy journey to and from work. Read it – and you’ll likely try it …and love it. Grady Harp, June 15
