Microbusiness Independence, second edition
One of the most common things we hear from
Walden Effect readers is some form of "We'd love to be full time
homesteaders. But how do you find the time while working a
job?" Our answer is --- why work a job?
Over the last two years,
we've made a living by selling our automatic chicken waterer, a simple product that Mark
dreamed up and that we build and mail off to customers in about 13
hours a week. (That's 6.5 hours apiece, in case you're
wondering.) We don't charge an arm and a leg for our waterers and
we don't exploit child laborers in China, but we're still able to make
a very good living in what amounts to less than two work days per week.
We summed up a series of simple
steps that we think anyone can follow to achieve this financial
self-sufficiency and published it in the form of an ebook a bit over a
year ago. At that time, we had just barely poked our heads above
the poverty line, which I thought was just fine --- it really is quite
possible for a couple to live simply on $14,000 and not feel pinched at
all. Unfortunately, I could tell that our ebook readers weren't
excited enough by that low income existence to quit their jobs.
So when we streamlined the process and tripled our income while putting
in no extra work hours in 2010, I figured I should revamp the ebook and
perhaps tempt a few hardy souls to escape the rat race.
Which is all a long way
of saying --- the second edition of Microbusiness Independence is now
available for immediate download for $2. You can just click on
