In the end, Hodgkinson defines bohemians in business as people who want “to enjoy our work and enjoy our everyday life and make a living from it, all at once”. If this is you, then add this wry and helpful eccentric book to your reading list.

Synopsis

Everyone should work for themselves. But don't cashflow forecasts, tax returns and P&Ls all sound a bit of a faff?

Fear not: help is at hand. In Business for Bohemians, Tom Hodgkinson combines practical advice with laugh-out-loud anecdote to create a refreshingly candid guidebook for all of us who aspire to a greater degree of freedom in our working lives.

Whether you dream of launching your own startup or profiting from your creativity in your spare time, Business for Bohemians will equip you with the tools to turn your talents into a profitable and enjoyable business. Accounting need no longer be a dark art. You will become au fait with business plans and a friend of the spreadsheet. You will discover that laziness can be a virtue. Above all, you will realise that freedom from the nine-to-five life is achievable - and, with Hodgkinson's comforting, pragmatic and extremely funny advice at hand, you might even enjoy yourself along the way.

Tom Hodgkinson is the founder and editor of The Idler and the bestselling author of How to be Idle, How to be Free, The Idle Parent and Brave Old World. In 2011 he and his partner Victoria opened the Idler Academy in London, an independent bookshop, coffeehouse and cultural centre which offers online and real-world courses in everything from philosophy and calligraphy to business skills and self-defence.
