What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering the question. Depending on when you ask this controversial Princeton University guest lecturer, he might answer: I race motorcycles in Europe.I ski in the Andes.I scuba dive in Panama. I dance tango in Buenos Aires. He has spent more than five years learning the secrets of the New Rich, a fast-growing subculture who has abandoned the deferred-life plan and instead mastered the new currencies--time and mobility--to create luxury lifestyles in the here and now. Whether you are an overworked employee or an entrepreneur trapped in your own business, this book is the compass for a new and revolutionary world. Join Tim Ferriss as he teaches you: - How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want - How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs - How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist- How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and freuent mini-retirements- What the crucial difference is between absolute and relative income- How to train your boss to value performance over presence, or kill your job (or company) if it's beyond repair- What automated cash-flow muses are and how to create one in 2 to 4 weeks- How to cultivate selective ignorance--and create time--with a low-information diet- What the management secrets of Remote Control CEOs are - How to get free housing worldwide and airfare at 50-80% off - How to fill the void and create a meaningful life after removing work and the office You can have it all--really.

display_description Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan--there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, or just living more and working less, here is the blueprint. This step-by-step guide to luxury lifestyle design teaches: how Tim went from $40,000 per year and 80 hours per week to $40,000 per month and 4 hours per week; how to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want; how blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs; how to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist; how to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and frequent "mini-retirements."--Publisher description.
