"Carl Reader has truly captured that the future of work is being rewritten. These COVID times will lead to the growth of the gig economy and there is a place for all skills, but we need to know how to capitalize our best skills to find our way forward.

And Carl's advice also serves as a nudge to those pondering whether to take the plunge to become their own boss.

"Carl Reader's Boss It is a must-read for anyone considering starting or already running their own business. Carl's experience, insight and approachable style combine to captivate and inform far better than most business books I've read. He's honest about the realities and the practicalities, and his approach - Dream it, Plan it, Do it, Scale it - sets it all out for you. Carl's straightforward advice demystifies complex issues and should be a constant reference source for all. Keep it handy and read it often." - Chris Bryce, former CEO/Chair, IPSE (Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed)

"Boss It uniquely addresses the two most important aspects of business ownership - the why and the how. Self-employment and business ownership remain the backbone of the world's economy, yet the concepts remain unimaginable or misunderstood for many. The author demystifies the topics in a way that guides the reader through self-analysis, supported by a pragmatic step-by-step process. The end result is inspiration and action for the motivated reader!" - Brad D Smith, Executive Chairman, Intuit
