(Book Review)Free Time: Lose the Busywork, Love Your Business by Jenny Blake

By Lionesses of Africa

For entrepreneur Jenny Blake, author of the new book Free Time: Lose the Busywork, Love Your Business, she believes that ‘Time is not money. Time is life force.’ Jenny Blake, author of the award-winning book Pivot and co-creator of Google’s acclaimed Career Guru coaching program, is back with her signature blend of heart-based operating principles and practical tools. This book will teach you how to move from friction to flow through smarter systems and the three-stage Free Time Framework.™

In her new book, Free Time: Lose the Busywork, Love Your Business, Jenny Blake asks, “Are you consistently doing the work that you and only you can do? Or are you burdened by busywork, the bottleneck blocking your company’s profit and potential?” If the answer is yes to those questions, then this is definitely a book for you to read. Jenny believes that as an entrepreneur your time is far more precious than money. It is your presence, your memories, your quality of life. As a business owner, you are already paying a risk and pressure tax. For many, growth fueled by added stress is not worth the trade-off. You have an urge to simplify and streamline. Jenny’s book Free Time is not about working as little as possible. Nor is it about creating a lifestyle business purely for one’s own gain. It is about creating a life-giving business energizing every single person who is a part of it, from the owner to team members, to clients and community. Free Time is about making small investments now to create greater optionality in the future.

A more joyful business is within reach. Imagine the following scenarios that could be yours if you rethink the way you think and approach your business building:

  • Traveling, going off the grid, or handling family emergencies without panicking that everything will fall apart while you are gone.
  • Working 10- to 20-hour weeks, delegating the rest to a part-time remote team.
  • Answering questions with relief, knowing you don’t have to “own” the next steps.
  • Empowering your Delightfully Tiny Team™ to answer their own questions before they even have to ask you.
  • Harnessing your creative energy for the strategic projects that excite you most.

Free Time is a playbook to free your mind, time, and team for your best work. This book will teach you and your team to operate efficiently and intuitively while earning abundantly, so you can make your greatest contribution as a business owner.

Author Quotes

I committed to building a better, more blissful business. One that would be heart based, systems focused, delightfully tiny, and fun. I strove eliminate preventable stress.

When you run your own company, hard work no longer has a direct correlation to the profit you generate. In the entrepreneurial realm, time is decoupled from money. There is no guarantee that pouring more time into your business will yield positive results. 

In a small business there is no place to hide. Hard work itself is meaningless. The work must work, it must be strategic and revenue-generating, or you will quickly go out of business.
