Tired of just "getting by"?,
This review is from: How To Stop Working And Make A Million Pounds Instead (Kindle Edition)
I got this book from John Harrison about a month ago. It's a small paperback, but has a hell of a lot of concentrated wisdom in it. I got it because he's a lot richer than me, and I wanted to know how he got there!
I think the bottom line is: "Everybody's usually too busy earning a living to get rich" - and John points out all the mental and social snares that keep YOU poor.
The so-called "friends" that HATE the idea of you breaking loose from the 9-5 trap (and thus proving that there's nothing but inertia stopping THEM from doing it too).
The family around you that try to keep you in your place - with your nose to the grindstone of day-to-day living - because to do anything else is seriously scary to them.
No matter what idea you have for a business, it isn't going to work unless you get your thinking right. In this book, John not only offers you a lot of practical ideas for getting a business going, but makes sure you have the correct mindset to succeed.
There's an old saying: "Don't take diet advice from a fat person" - and equally, you shouldn't take advice on how to make money from a poor person either. John runs one of the most successful information-publishing companies in the UK, and I reckon his distilled wisdom is the best £3.42 you'll invest in yourself.
I'm putting it into action, anyway....
