Publisher's Summary

The case for investing in your own career before anything else.

Michael Ellsberg and Bryan Franklin think you've been fed a lie: that if you save for decades and invest in 401(k)s, IRAs, and a home, these investments will grow steadily over decades, allowing 20 to 30 years of secure, peaceful retirement. This might have been true at some point in the last century, but it is not true any longer. If you want to get ahead and enjoy a life of prosperity, the authors argue that you must invest in the most powerful source of wealth you'll ever know: your own earning power.

Ellsberg and Franklin reveal how investing in yourself in various ways can guarantee a return much higher than the stock market or real estate. Boosting your skills, leadership, persuasion ability, and network enriches the quality and meaning of your life at the same time that it enriches your wallet. Why wouldn't you bet on yourself?

I almost never write full reviews...

But this book deserves it. I won't risk doing a terrible job summarizing this book and turning you off to it. I'll just say, it's been one of those life changing books that finds a place in your collection and becomes dog eared. I have the audio, digital, and well worn hard cover. I highly recommend this book for anyone, at any stage of growth or investment.

Great Paradigm Shift For Me...

Really enjoyed this book. Lot of stuff I had heard in one form but I picked up a much stronger framework on how to tie them all together.

Advisor Equity, the Power of Tribe, and the Exchange Rate concepts really helped me a ton and add another dynamic to my portfolio.
