Four Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss, was my ticket out of poverty. My husband had been reading it for weeks, telling me I really should read it too. I am not into reading all of these business books like he is, I often get bored of that topic. I read one page of this book (right in the middle of it) and couldn't stop reading. It all made too much sense to me. I definitely recommend it for anyone, but will say that it won't work for everyone. Some people are suited to certain lifestyles. The only thing keeping me thinking that it is for me, is that I can identify with the author so much, we have the same learning styles it seems.
I have no delusions about this business. I know that there is a very real chance that we will only lose money, or just break even. There is also the undeniable fact that we may succeed. This venture may be the beginning of so many more that fund the life that we dream of. At this point our dreams are so vivid, we will not settle for merely making it. We will strive toward the success we can nearly taste, we can see it, just off in the distance. This attempt will succeed, no matter how long it takes.
Take risks, learn from mistakes. Life is meant to be lived.
