Timothy Ferriss and The 4-Hour Workweek

4hourworkweek.jpgI just finished reading a book called The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss.

It's about how to leave your 9-5 grind (whether that means you have a job working for someone else… or a "job" working for yourself!).

And Ferriss claims he works just 4 hours per week.

Did I mention he makes over $80,000 per month?

Of course, that was before his book was published. If he hits the best-seller lists, which seems inevitable, I'm sure that number will go up. Way up.

I would think that whole business about "$80,000 per month" was just a load of bull if I didn't know a handful of people who work 10-15 hours per week and make over $100,00 per month.

 So I know it's possible… And it blows my mind.

As a result of all this, I've set some new goals for my own work life. I'd suggest you get the book and do the same. No affiliate links or anything like that – just a recommendation you go get the book.

I will have more to say about this very soon. And I have a couple of new projects lined up that will help you along your way to that "4-Hour Workweek".

More about those in the next couple of days.

For now… off to the bookstore with you! Grab a copy of "4-Hour Workweek".

You'll thank me.

  • Ray, cool new logo. I ordered the book a few days ago, and can’t wait to read it.

  • Awesome, awesome, awesome!

    This book makes me giddy just reading your review, ordered it instantly and just downloaded the sample chapter from
    the author’s site. Can’t wait to read the whole thing.

    Thanks for this recommendation!

  • Thanks for the heads up on this. I’ve just read the sample article about Outsourcing your life. I’m already doing this in my business. I have an outsourcing company after all.

    However it has got me thinking to all the other things that I could be getting my team to do.

    x searching and finding a replacement for the light I broke
    x finding a hotel for the weekend away I want to go on
    x booking flight tickets
    x balancing my bank account each month
    x sending the birthday cards I keep missing

    Here’s to more free time and more productive time

  • Great list, Gavin.

    It got me making a similar list.

    I have already given away a copy (mine) to a friend… and sold a couple dozen people on getting this book.

    After I gave mine away, I discovered local bookstores were out of their copies! I tracked one down by phone and drove a half hour to get it. Whew!

    Thanks for featuring this compelling book, Ray.

    Outsourcing is changing my life. Energizing so very many of my hours…because I can make a wish list and my VAs will manifest those very things! But the real value is the sort of freedom one gains. More discretionary time to be creative, to give to others of our choosing, to interact with loved ones without even a fraction of consciousness held hostage by the tyranny of onerous work. For too many years I believed it was a character defect not to apply myself assiduously to every task. I was wrong. Hiring VAs and Housekeepers (God bless these good people!) were two of the smartest, most joyful things I’ve done, ever.

    Unrelated: Ray, you look wonderful in the banner photo. Really grand. Good for you.

  • It seems every single smart marketer is hyped
    on this book in the last 2 weeks.

    I’m gonna go pick up a copy today.

  • Ray – I can hardly thank you enough for recommending Tim Ferriss’ book to me on our call last week! This book has *already* changed my life, and my copy hasn’t even arrived yet! 🙂 I’ve ordered the CD actually, so I can listen everywhere over & over. Tim’s concepts are off-the-charts brilliant. I’m spreading the word about this new movement!

    BTW, others may enjoy the excellent interview Yanik Silver did with Tim at http://www.surefiremarketing.com/4hourweek/call/ – it’s jam-packed with useful nuggets!

    Thanks again, Ray, for all you do! You ROCK! 🙂
