Karl Marx got it wrong. Religion isn't the opium of the masses. Work is.
We live in a society based on wage slavery. Every day millions of people go to work as wage slaves. Why they do this isn't as obvious as you might think. They do so not to earn money. They do so because that is what is expected of them.
From the day we are born we are sold the lie that is Plan A. Work hard at school, secure a good job, set your sights on promotion, climb the corporate ladder, live happily ever after. The problem being very few of us do live happily ever after.
For far too many people the reality of Plan A is this. Working longer and longer hours just to make ends meet, condemned to a life of wage slavery, drowning in sea of debt, poverty of mind and spirit, existing merely to work.
Plan A didn't even work for most people during the so-called good times.
With the current economic problems we face, and the far bigger ones ahead (an ageing population, peak oil, climate change, the looming pension crisis to name but a few), it's more vital than ever that we at least consider alternatives to "earning a living".
Maverick economist and internet entrepreneur, George Marshall, thinks work is a four letter word.
He thinks we are all mad to spend 40 or more hours every week for 40 or more years of our lives "earning a living". Especially when we don't have to.
In our frantic bid to earn enough money we don't realise that in return for a wage packet we trade our most valuable possession. Our time.
The big mistake we make is to sell our time by the hour. Instead we should be doing what movie stars do. Do an hour's work and then allow that hour's work to make us money for days, weeks, months, years even, to come.
We can't all be movie stars unfortunately, but thanks to the information age, anyone who can turn on a computer can put their time to work for them just like those movie stars do.
George Marshall has spent the last six years excavating an escape tunnel that leads directly away from the rat race. He calls it Plan B and he thinks it's an escape route you might want to explore for yourself.
It won't bring the wage slave society crashing down, but for tens of thousands of people just like you, it may just provide the blueprint for the life of endless possibility that you were born to lead.
George has developed a Plan B that will help you make more money by working less hours.
His complete blueprint for escaping the rat race will show you exactly how to make money by building simple information-based websites and then monetising them through advertising, Google Adsense and affiliate marketing.
More good news - he writes in Plain English!
Plan B is a simply yet revolutionary idea. And it's this. Get out while you can.
The only main point I get out of this book, is that your time is precious. So don't waste your time reading this book.Published 8 months ago by S. J. Moran
Very good although I wonder if it's getting dated now with tablets and mobile technology (it's mostly about building traditional websites).Published 13 months ago by AD

My son requested this, when I asked him what he wanted for a present, along with another book. I usually buy from Amazon as the price & service is very goodPublished 23 months ago by s+s/sci fi buff1

George talks about the traps of expecting a comfortable life as a wage slave. This makes you like a business with only one customer, who will then do what he likes with you. Read morePublished on 4 Mar. 2013 by Mr. M. Sells
