70% of Americans Hate Their Jobs – Don’t You
Ditch the 9-to-5, Live Out Your Dreams, and Become a Part of the “New Rich”–RIGHT NOW
From: Tim Ferriss, Former Overworked Cubicle Monkey-Turned Lifestyle Design Guru
If you’re anything like me, then you had the same surprising reaction that I did to the statistic above:
Only 70% hate their jobs?
Seems a bit low, doesn’t it?
Especially with the chronically “recovering” economy leaving most everyone in the workforce (including YOU) at the mercy of tyrannical bosses and droning co-workers looking to get ahead.
Not to mention the ever-present threat of layoffs hanging over you, ready to take food out of your family’s mouth and send the roof over their heads crashing down around them.
And that’s without even mentioning that each day in that boring, soul-sucking, jail cell of a workplace is another day that won’t be spent chasing your dreams and achieving your most significant life goals.
I know this because I used to be just like you: addicted to email. At the beck and call of bosses and subordinates unable (or more likely unwilling) to tackle problems themselves. Waiting for “someday,” but unsure when (or if) it would ever come.
The Real Costs of Working A Job You Hate
My fingers grew weary from hammering away on my smart phone. I started to squint from staring at screens all day long. My skin turned pasty and clammy. Meetings started to be double and triple-booked on top of one another as I struggled to keep my sanity.
Worst of all, friends and family fell to the wayside as I struggled to grasp at the fringes of my sanity.
One day, I couldn’t take it anymore.
I woke up and sped off to the airport.
When I got to the ticket counter, the agent asked me, “Where are you going today?”
I pulled out my credit card, handed it to her, shook my head and said, “Someplace warm.”
I was completely burned out.
Can you blame me? Years of working twenty hour days had finally taken their toll. If I didn’t bust out of my old routine RIGHT NOW, at that very moment, I was going to do irreparable harm to my health and sanity…or worse…
How I Changed My Relationship With Work…And You Can, Too…
I knew that I couldn’t keep living the way I had been–I needed a change.
A BIG one.
So I re-examined everything. Every routine I had, every schedule, every meeting, even every conversation I would have on a day-to-day basis.
What I found will absolutely shock you.
I’ll get to that in a minute. But before I do, let me ask you:
What would you do with practically unlimited time to pursue your dreams, passions, and aspirations?
What if you could keep your current income–or even increase it–while gaining more flexibility to spend time with friends, family, and loved ones?
What if you could find a profession that you were actually happy to work in? Where you would never even consider retirement since, after all, it would be what you were doing with your time anyway?
What if I told you I have the secret to all of this, to reaching your true potential, and unlocking all of the wonderful gifts you have to offer everyone on this planet?
Does any of that sound enticing to you?
I know–all of it, right? But let me guess–you’re thinking “Okay Tim, how can you possibly deliver all of these things to me right now?”
The Secret to a Healthy and Fulfilling Life
The answer lies between your ears. More accurately, it has to do with your mindset. You see, you’ve probably been trained from an early age to follow a very linear, well-defined path that looks something like this:
-Go to school
-Graduate with all kinds of amazing visions of how you’ll “change the world!”
-Get a job in a related field
-Work in that field for thirty or forty years, maybe even with the same employer
-Fall in love, get married, have a family, and otherwise “put down roots.”
-Put your children through school, finally retire, frail and exhausted, unable to experience the things you once dreamed of.
-Rest comfortably six feet underground for years to come.
Takes the shine off it a bit, doesn’t it?
Yet this is exactly the set path that people follow, like pieces on a board game, silently hopping from one square to the next, waiting to be rewarded or punished as fate sees fit.
Prepare to Wreck Your Worldview
But what if I told you there weren’t any rules?
What if I told you all of the “constraints” in this game were pure and simple figments of your imagination?
What if I told you that there was a way to get to anywhere on the board you wanted to go, at any time, and with whoever you wanted?
And what if I could give you the tools to do so in one convenient package, a book that has already helped millions of other people tailor their lifestyle to their wants, needs, and desires, as opposed to the vast majority of people who continue to allow themselves to be stepped on and over at jobs they hate?
Take These 2 SIMPLE Steps RIGHT NOW to Start on Your Path to Personal Freedom:
Step #1: The 80/20 Rule. This is the secret that the greatest Entrepreneurs, Lawyers, and Businesspeople around the world often pay hundreds of thousands of dollars and years of their lives to learn. Essentially, the 80/20 rule allows you to focus on the 20% of tasks that are most crucial to your job–the 20% of tasks that produce a whopping 80% of the results!
The rest of your tasks–often the mundane, repetitive, mind-numbing ones–can be easily outsourced to others. Employ the 80/20 rule in your current job and carry it through to your passion–if you follow my template for putting it into action, I guarantee you’ll have oodles of free time to spend as you see fit.
Step #2: Your “Muse” Business. I know, times are tough for you. You’re working harder than ever for less money than you thought you’d have right now. But once you streamline your day using the 80/20 rule, you’ll be able to start a low-cost, high-yield “Muse” business, a side-business that will bring in extra income, and allow you to start saving away while you scale it, automate it, and reap the rewards of doing something you love.
Using these two simple strategies, along with several dozen others I figured out through hours, days, weeks, even months of experimentation, I gradually started to take control of my life again. I streamlined my email process, eliminated most meetings, delegated the power to complete more tasks, and, as a result, had a much happier work environment.
That’s because eventually my work life became so streamlined that my “work environment” was wherever I wanted it to be! From the beaches of Thailand to a luxury apartment I rented in Buenos Aires–the entire world was, quite literally, my office.
I had achieved my goal: true, absolute freedom to work wherever and whenever I wanted to, on my own terms.
Shockingly, Some People Still Spin Their Wheels And Never Seem to “Get” It
By this point, you might be thinking, “Why don’t I just poke around YouTube for a while and find some free videos that can tell me the same awesome secrets that you can?”
Quite simply, those videos don’t exist! Because it’s free to upload those videos, literally anyone can (and does). The result is a pile of contradictory half-truths and bluster that would make Snake Oil Salesmen blush, a dump of largely commonplace information that will cost you hours of your time and all of your patience to sort through.
No need to spend thousands of dollars on seminar fees, in addition to all of the travel, lodging, and other expenses you’ll pay for just to become “another face in the crowd.”
Learn how to live your life the way you want to from anywhere: even that perfect beach you’ll be calling “home” in a few years’ time!
The Secrets of Complete and Total Freedom
I want to give you all of this priceless information I’ve collected over the past decade in one convenient, easy-to-read package. I call it The Four Hour Work Week.
It’s an easy-to-read, step-by-step blueprint to help you make more money for working less time, allowing you to live the life you’ve always wanted to lead.
Now, you’re probably thinking, “Come on, Tim–this sounds too good to be true!”
I can see how you might think that–if not for the millions of people who have already read The Four Hour Work Week, and used it to shape the life that they wanted to live. Here are a few examples:
“Your book has changed my life and infinitely improved my lifestyle, and I just wanted to thank you for everything.” -B. Dechesare
“I used concepts from the 4HWW to work remotely from August of ‘08 until January of ‘09. I went to Portugal, Europe, Spain, Sweden, and Norway surfing and snowboarding my brains out. Best part about it? I came home with three times as much money in the bank than I would have if I continued the normal 9 to 5. I work for [world famous design company] as a software developer, and was able to put the concepts to use and really change my life. -B. Williamson
“Hey Tim, I just wanted to tell you that your book, The 4-Hour Workweek, has been a true inspiration and life-changing resource for me this year!…I am forever grateful, and am excited for more mini-retirements. Here’s to living during the best years of my life. -Mark Cafiero
As you can easily see, The Four Hour Workweek is no ordinary book! It contains over 350 pages jam-packed with tried-and-true, proven methods to sever the heavy chain keeping you tethered to that depressing desk.
Here are just a few of the things you’ll discover inside:
A simple tip to contact some of the most powerful people in the world. These innovators and visionaries are usually safely hidden behind layers of “gatekeepers,” but I’ll show you the secret to cut through the barriers around them so that you can gain valuable insights, information, and even potential business partners.
A proven 9-step plan to streamline those dreaded tasks like email and meetings that seem to gnaw away at your day, reduce your productivity, and drive you insane in the process.
The secret of outsourcing. Few know how to do it successfully, but once you do, you’ll do a double-take when looking at those wide-open blocks of time on your calendar (and will enjoy filling them up with all sorts of fulfilling, lifelong goals that you’ve been too busy to pursue!).
My secret method to automate income via a special “muse” business–this one chapter has the do’s and don’ts that have the chance to change your life and provide a virtually effort-free stream of cash once you set it up.
The single most powerful way to identify product niches with little risk and without going through expensive rounds of prototyping and product development.
And that’s all just from the first third of the book!
This Could Be Your Life:
Imagine it now: the sun’s rays sneak through the window in the tropical bungalow, gently rousing you from your sleep.
You get up and stretch quickly before clapping your hands together and sitting down at your laptop for an hour or two of “work.”
With everything running smoothly and on autopilot, you shake your head as you close your laptop.
You get up and walk to the mirror, “Gonna leave early today boss,” you say to your reflection, a “cat-that-ate-the-canary” grin plastered across your face.
The best part is, this is only one of thousands of different lifestyles you could lead after reading The Four Hour Work Week. You can take back your life TODAY–no more “deferred life plans,” waiting for a retirement that may or may not ever come.
Warning: This Book Has The Potential To Completely Change Your Life!
Keep in mind, this book isn’t for everyone.
If you don’t have any regrets…
If you don’t have a secret dream or adventure you’ve always been dying to take…
If you like the idea of sitting at that same desk you’re at, or maybe a slightly larger one on a higher floor for the next 20-30 years…then this book might not be for you.
But if you’re aspiring to be a member of what I call “The New Rich,” if you want to start taking steps away from that desk, away from the manufactured drama of office politics, away from the “same-old, same-old,” while building your own safety net for yourself and your family, then The Four Hour Work Week is absolutely for you!
Don’t shuffle along on the treadmill of life, content to be a member of that unfortunate 70% of Americans who hate their jobs, waiting around until you get a decent casket and pleasant funeral as your thanks. Don’t wait for sickness or injury to derail what dreams are boiling deep within you, stewing until one day you realize that they’ve been over-cooked.
If you’re anything like me, you need a kick in the pants to jar you out of your unhappiness.
Fortunately for you, you don’t need the near-breakdown and months of introspection that I endured to get there–you just need this book.
The Manual For The New Rich–How To Think Like Them And Become One of Them
Of course, I’d be lying if I said that you can have all of this overnight–that’s simply not how it works. There’s no such thing as a free lunch.
What I can promise you, though, is that if you let me take you by the hand, and guide you through the simple steps I’ve laid out for you in The Four Hour Work Week, with just a bit of effort on the front end, you can drastically change the direction and quality of your life within the year.
This is it–the book that you’ve been waiting for your entire life. The manual that will give you the courage to step out of the plane, to open the chute and enjoy the ride back to earth over and over again.
Still don’t believe me? Here are a few more examples of people who have dared to change their lives using The Four Hour Work Week blueprint:
“The biggest change is that I now have my life under control. I take care of my little daughter (20 months) half the day (second half my wife takes care of her), I take care of business, and I take time to do things I always wanted to do…I have a lot more spare time and a clear head (so I guess I’ve gotten a lot richer!).” -J. Reiter
“Today South America, tomorrow anywhere I can get a high-speed internet connection (banda ancha)! My stress level has dropped significantly since leaving my old job and my quality of life has improved enormously.” -Jeff B.
“Tim, we moved to a totally digital nomadic life traveling the world as a family in 2006, so we discovered your book and ideas after we had begun and loved it! Our life has changed totally and is more fulfilling and much more simple. We are greener, leaner, healthier, happier, more connected.” -SOULTRAVELERS3 (a family living abroad and loving it)
Now For THE BIG QUESTION!
Okay, so at this point, I know what you’re thinking: “How much does it cost, Tim?”
We’ll get to that in a second. Before I tell you, though, let me ask you–how much would you pay for total freedom in every aspect of your life?
How much is summiting that mountain you’ve always wanted to climb, or taking that outlandish trip you’ve always fantasized about worth to you? Can you put a price on reclaiming the best years of your life as your own?
Especially since it’s all backed up with specific resources and testimonials from those who have joined “The New Rich,” who have found their passion and have made it their life’s work.
How much would you pay for this? $100? $500?
The Four Hour Work Week is just $22. That’s less than what most people spend in a week at their favorite gourmet coffee place. For a proven guide that has allowed millions to wake up from their corporate nightmare and live the dream lives they had once left for dead, it’s a small price to pay.
When you realize that this book gives you all the tools to make more money in less time and accomplish those life-long goals you thought you’d never achieve, you’ll come to understand that The Four Hour Work Week is one of the very best investments you could possibly make in yourself.
I’m so overwhelmed by the response to this book, by the thousands of people who have written me heartfelt notes that are just dripping with so much emotion that I can almost see the tears wash across the computer screen, that I’m willing to do something really crazy–absolutely unheard of in the book business.

That means that if you aren’t totally blown away by the book, by the amazing resources, tips, tricks, and secrets inside, within 60 days of purchase, all you need to do is email me and I will refund the entirety of your purchase no questions asked!
