A classic to read if you find yourself drawn to being or already are self-employed. Tim Ferriss is highly motivated and lives what he writes about. Part of him sometimes comes off as trust-fund frat-boy arrogant, but in general he seems nice and genuine. This book tells the story of how he built his business and reached financial independence, but it’s packed into a sort of “How To” guide style. Obviously, no one can replicate his journey, but along the way there are many useful tips and tricks to learn from. It left me with a big motivational boost.
