How had been your experience after the implementation of the principles from the “4-Hour Work Week” book?
I have read that book and say with pride that I have learned a lot from it. If I said I owed my credit of what I am today to that at least partially, it wouldn’t be wrong. Here’s more on that.
According to your question, I have implemented one or more of the ideas presented in that book. My answer to your question would be more a kind of a review of that book. As you must be knowing, that is one of the oldest and biggest books on making money online, and no doubt, it meets its intent. For that, I consider myself proof. There are many more like me, inside the book’s pages and outside. It covers how to stretch every dollar without living like a penny-pincher so that you live far better than other people making the same amount of income as you, which was one of the biggest breakthroughs for me. I could do a lot of the things I wanted to do in life but didn’t realize it because I hadn’t considered alternate ways that cost far less. And that was before I was making real money and had left my regular job. Even after years of publishing, that book is still valuable. Many of the present-day books on online entrepreneurship have inspiration from that or expanded upon it in a more niche area.
Along the way, the book covers four critical aspects of working far less for more money, through an acronym called DEAL. The book proceeds in that order, D-E-A-L, with several chapters for each. This acronym really summarizes the key things I took to heart and that helped me shape my lifestyle, within the year I read the book.
Since I have a lot to praise, covering all those points here might make this answer lengthy. I would recommend you read my full review of that. That review post also discusses DEAL, which could be resourceful for any online entrepreneur.
I would be pleased to discuss how that book had been a life-changer for me, but I don’t want to go too lengthy or personal when it’s not invited. That’s the reason I suggest you check out the review. In case you like that and/or are interested in knowing more about my actual implementation, please feel free to reply to me.
In the end, I would like to share a quote: “The goal isn’t to live forever; the goal is to create something that will.” Shape a lifestyle that leaves you wealthy and happy, and that lasts beyond your own life.
