Have you ever noticed that there are certain people who seem to get ahead just a bit faster than everyone else? You know, the types who always seem to be a bit ahead of the curve, to get noticed a bit more, and to achieve their goals a bit more quickly than the rest of the pack? And have you ever noticed how much this small edge can matter and the outsized impact it can have on the trajectory of their careers?
Twenty-four-year-old entrepreneur Brian Wong is one of these people, having graduated from college by age 18, having raised $24 million in venture capital to start his own company before he turned 25, and having grown that company into a global mobile advertising giant in just four years. His secret? The Cheat Code.
Wong believes that most people - even creative people - have a tendency to follow a script, to do things the way others do them simply because that way works. But therein lies the secret at the heart of the Cheat Code: Anyone can easily shortcut his or her way to success simply by going slightly off script, by doing things just a little differently from everyone else. Here, Wong unlocks the power of the Cheat Code through 71 bite-size and virtually effortless shortcuts to get a leg up on the competition, garner attention for ourselves and our ideas, and accelerate our success.

Thinking of cancelling my entire subscription.
Self centered and fouled mouthed. Could not honestly be considered a performance can it?
Heard this guy on Jane on Money podcast and I thought I would give his book a look. This guy is living in a different world than me and the other mortals so perhaps in that world he will be king. For me, it's trash.
Wow, talk about a self serving project. This book provides no intelligent or worthwhile information. Seems like it's strictly a way for some former geek to tell you how great he is. His constant use of vulgarity is pointless and serves only to try and make himself sound tough. I can't believe I wasted my time, and money on this.
I was expecting not to learn anything from this 24 year old entrepreneur but I remain pleasantly surprised.. his book of Cheats has something for everyone even for an old businessman who's read it all...like me
