The Practical Dreamer's Handbook
Finding the Time, Money, and Energy to Live the Life You Want to LiveBook - 2000
How often do each of us imagine a craft, business, or career we'd love to pursue or a unique place we'd love to live, only to drum up a hundred different reasons why it can't be done: Our bills are too high; we're tied down to our current home; our families will disapprove; our dreams won't pay enough-the list goes on and on. The Practical Dreamer's Handbook is the answer to those self-limiting notions. The groundbreaking authors of Working from Home explain how readers can reverse their current mindset and marshal their resources to begin the lifestyle they desire. As always, Paul and Sarah provide a wealth of examples and anecdotes from real-life "practical dreamers" who have overcome the obstacles above and more. They counsel small but potent steps we can take-such as keeping a photograph of a place we dream of living-that not only keep our ambitions alive, but create the circumstances for positive coincidences to occur. They instruct the reader on specific actions in areas including money and time management that can help foster the transition from one type of working and living situation to another. Finally, Paul and Sarah show how to take pleasure in what you have created and how to avoid creating another stress-filled lifestyle. The Practical Dreamer's Handbook is not geared specifically to home-based entrepreneurs, but rather to readers who yearn to begin any kind of new business, lifestyle, career, or artistic pursuit. Both therapeutic and pragmatic, it is the blueprint for which many have been searching.
