Overview

Jeffrey Taylor is no stranger to the self-help book market. He has previously published two textbooks for the equipment leasing industry (Selling Leasing In A Tough Economy and The Future of Equipment Leasing) and an autobiography on his life as a recovering alcoholic (A Gentleman Drunk).

Going from W2 to 1099 delivers an entertaining account and perspective on starting up a new business. The book is an excellent resource for corporate professionals who have recently lost their long-time jobs or are ready to give up the daily grind and follow their dreams.

Written in a very friendly buddy-to-buddy tone, the book walks the entrepreneurial newcomer through the emotional ups and downs of their new life. Sprinkled with wisdom and humor, Jeffrey convinces you very quickly that all it takes to succeed is to "try anything once".

Jeffrey starts off with suggestions on how to read the book.

"When you have free time, pick up this book. I suggest that when you have a specific issue at hand, look it up. Dog-ear pages so that you can easily find the sections that will help you. Reread portions until they make sense. You'll be surprised how long it takes to undo habitual behavior. It doesn't happen overnight, but when it does, you'll find that you're every bit of the employable powerhouse that you've always been-and that you don't need to rely on a corporate job."

Formatted alphabetically, he talks about more than 200 subjects (e.g. advertising, anger, generating ideas, goals, humility, etc.) that will influence the success of the entrepreneur, sharing with us on how he dealt with his own successes and failures.

He then concludes with his own 'Great Endings':

"When I come to theend of a 'can't put it down' book or see the last frame of an 'Oscar' film, I envy the writer and foolishly wish that 'I could have written that.' According to the writers I admire the most, great endings wave 'checkered flags' at the end of a writing journey and profoundly put us into 'mystical experiences'.

So, now that we have come to the end of a journey that I started more than 25 years ago, allow me the opportunity to thank you for becoming a believer in a world that allows anyone to create their own adventures; a world in which anyone can succeed if they simply 'try and try till they get it right.'"
