Spare Room Tycoon

Chan offers an intimate portrait of a new way of working and a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to find peace, satisfaction and fulfillment as an independent entrepreneur.
Spare Room Tycoon appealed to me because it promised both a roadmap to sane self-employment and an indication of where identity intersects with the freelance life. It more than delivered on both fronts. Written at the turn of the century but even more applicable to today's work environment, James renders a soulful approach to life as an "independent captain of industry myself."
Refreshingly, Spare Room Tycoon provides a glimpse of and a vision for working independently that extends beyond the virtual, isolated setting of the home office workstation. Even as James deconstructs and captures the spirit of independence, he also serves as its Sherpa, setting reader expectations for the journey ahead while giving them tools to navigate it. In doing so there are several helpful anecdotes and examples that balance his philosophical/existential approach to self-employment.
Of especial help to this reader was a specific conversation with a client wherein James negotiated the always-tricky issue of fees. In doing so, he recounted a conversation that reflected his confidence and emotional honesty - in a seemingly risky move he told the client he'd rather walk away than wax resentful around taking a lower-than-anticipated fee. The situation resolved itself.
