We skimmed the book so you wouldn’t have to

Be a Free Range Human: Escape the 9 to 5, Create a Life You Love and Still Pay the Bills, by Marianne Cantwell (Kogan Page), $19.95

You’re equipped with an “internal GPS.” When you’re making big decisions about your career, listen to it. “Remember, there is no point wasting time on an option if you get a big screaming ‘no!’ inside,” she writes. p41

Avoid the influence of the “beige army.” They are “the managers in the office who can’t see the big picture — they are staid, repressed, and terrified of change.” Mostly, they will feel threatened when you “consider making a change outside their comfort zone.” Don’t listen to them. p130

When you’re getting started with a new business, “respond fast to press inquiries,” Cantwell advises. “Journalists usually have short deadlines and are likely to take first responses.” p208

You needn’t run a B&B to be a “free range” worker who can live anywhere. “A location-independent business is usually run online and is ... a mixture of selling services (consulting, coaching, Web design) or virtual products,” writes Cantwell. p236
