Do you ever think of turning in your notice and just check out of the 8 to 5 system? Or starting a side hustle that could possibly grow into a full business? Better still, do you dream of a lifestyle that affords you lots of freedom? Freedom to work from anywhere and on your own terms? The freedom to be your own boss.  


In that case, I’d recommend adding Two Weeks Notice by Amy Porterfield to the list of books to read. It’s not a thick book with technical business terms that make you feel like you’re back in school. Instead, Amy takes us through the simplified avenues of building an online business with simple-to-follow to-do’s and strategies. 


It’s definitely the kind of book I wish I had stumbled upon when I was starting my website and trying to find my way to running a digital business. 


But I digress.

Why Two Weeks Notice by Amy Porterfield is Worth a Spot in Your Bookshelf

Back to the book. Amy takes us through her journey from the corporate world to running her own business. It wasn’t an easy journey. From finding the courage to quit her 9-5 job to struggling to find her footing as a coach. At one point, she almost lost all that she had built because of a business partnership gone sour. 


In all of this, the one thing she emphasizes and lets us learn from her experience is that you first need to find and define your own path. And most of all, you have to believe in yourself and in what you can offer your customers. Especially when plagued with imposter syndrome. I found this really encouraging because I have constantly struggled with imposter syndrome, which has affected a lot of my work and earning potential. I even did an article about how imposter syndrome affects your finances.  


Away from the motivation aspect of the book, Amy gives us a step-by-step guide to building an online business. From identifying your customer avatar and content planning and creation to growing a mailing list and revenue streams you can consider. The book is honestly a trove of digital marketing tips, especially for a beginner. 


Most importantly, I loved how the author focuses on empowering women to follow their dreams. There are numerous examples of women who have followed their dreams and passions, leaving the corporate world to start successful online businesses.

My Concern 

Well, as a beginner or someone needing help creating an online business, you will get tips and strategies to get you started. Think of tips about how to build a website, plan your content, takes on the available revenue strategies to choose from, lead magnets, and pricing, among others. 


However, I was expecting more, especially on strategies for building an online business. Maybe, perhaps, it’s because I have listened to her podcast and taken advantage of some of the free tools and courses. 


So, if you already have experience in online marketing, need a more in-depth take on building an online business, or your online business isn’t in the niche of content creation or coaching, Two Weeks Notice by Amy Porterfield might not be right up your alley.
