The 4-Hour Workweek

Have you read The 4-Hour Workweek? Author Timothy Ferriss wrote this book to show people how to downsize time spent on work and upsize time spent on personal pursuits.

It may sound impossible, but I know someone who makes $30k a year from working four hours a week. Sure, $30k may not bring you riches, but it’s a pretty good return from four hours a week. If you’re looking to earn money on top of your regular job, top up retirement income, stay at home with kids or ailing family members, or just make decent money while working as little as you can, $30k isn’t bad at all. My friend is a marketing consultant and freelance writer who charges around $145 an hour. With just four hours a week, she brings in $30k a year.

But imagine if my friend found ways to get other people to do work for her. Imagine if she also tapped into recurring revenue streams. She could earn far more than $30k a year.

I’ve got The 4-Hour Workweek on my holiday shopping list. If you’ve read it, leave a comment. Thanks.
