SOLD OUT! The 4-hour workweek - Myth vs. Reality SOLD OUT!
NOTE: Sorry, but tonight's event on "The 4-Hour Workweek" is completely sold out. Only those who have registered will be allowed to attend. Please contact Jan at 303-666-4133 if you have any questions.
In 2007 Tim Ferriss published “The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich.” Thousands of people followed the plan as discussed in this book, many changing their lives for the better.
Join us at DaVinci Labs as we explore the progress of people who have followed the 4-hour workweek program, and where these people are today, 5 years after Tim Ferriss published his book.
Are web businesses as described in “The 4-Hour Workweek” still a viable source of income. Is offshoring many of the daily errands and particulars of our daily lives still a possibility? How have followers of the program made it work to augment careers or even begin new lifestyles they never thought possible before reading this book?
Leading the discussion will be Peter Adams, who picked up “The 4-Hour Workweek” in 2009. Mr. Adams will share how he made “The 4-Hour Workweek” into a revenue stream that augments his career and what he has changed in his personal program over the last three years. We will be discussing the benefits and pitfalls of web based businesses, working with offshore providers of services and product, and how you can make the 4-hour workweek a reality in your life.
