Escape the 9-to-5 and work only eight hours a week (or less) and live the lifestyle of a millionaire without ever needing to become one. Who invented working 9 to 5, five to six days a week and getting two to four weeks off at the end of the year?
Jamie McIntyre, a self-made millionaire explodes the myth that to live the life of your dreams you have to work hard and long hours for years and that you have to become a millionaire to have a millionaire's lifestyle. This book is all about removing those chains that tie you to a desk. Sure you can become a millionaire from being a successful investor over many years, risking capital, but what if:
First, the whole underlying assumption of this book is that all work sucks and should be minimized. Quality of life can come from a full commitment to mastering one's career. If you are in a crappy job, instead of trying to trick your boss into giving you freedom, why not find a great company to commit to.
Sure, mini-retirements would be great and could be pursued. I definitely agree with trying to remove waste from your life and not getting overly focused on making money. I love the 80/20 rule. Why not work with your boss to try to work something out, instead of tricking him/her into giving you the freedom you don't deserve? Integrity?
Lastly, this book seemed to CONSTANTLY refer to the book "4 hour work week". I already bought that book, thanks.
This book appears to be written by someone who simply wanted to write a book to make some money so they could go on mini retirements. It is full of idealistic and misguided advice.
Can I get my credits back on this one?
