Coffee Book Club: The 4-Hour Workweek


Do you dream of escaping the 9-5 rat race?

Do you fantasise about living anywhere in the world?

Do you desire to do anything that you want, and join the New Rich?

We were wondering about those same questions and then, we found this book.

The 4-Hour Workweek By Tim Ferriss

In this book, three-times New York Times bestselling author Timothy Ferriss shows readers how to live more and work less, and to forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the blah blah blah...

Take a break dude, and let me do this copywriting shit. Coz seriously, I sexify shit!

Hi, Maverick here. Now that the nerdy copywriter intern is curling into a ball at the stairwell, probably lighting up his joint and looking to get high, let me tell you what this event is really, really about. And if you had been:
  • Trying 5467 ways to kickstart your business idea and just can’t seem to get it's fat ass off the ground

  • Dragging your feet even to your own business because you’ve just been overwhelmingly pulled in more directions than the number of limbs you have

  • Having panic attacks thinking of your life and just can’t seem to catch a break

  • Tired of seeing your friends catching their breaks and flooding your FB timeline with their selfie with celebrities all around the world #dicks

  • Working your ass off thinking you can spend more time with your family, only to realised you’ve just missed the best parts of life

… then you should seriously hit the green REGISTER button and come to the event.

But nah, you’re not gonna come for another dull, boring, over-promised-zero-value event, because you’ve been to so many of it. No, no, no. You want that personal breakthrough, that over-the-fence-boost you need escape your hell hole, that one trick to make your life instantly better and dominate the shit out of your friends. (Just kidding about the last part)

Well, that’s where I come in.

Like you, I’m a practical dude. Sure, holding hands, singing rasa-sayang and shouting out your goals until you have to skip your weekly karaoke sessions may work for some people, but I’m talking about the real shit that brings real results.

You’re probably asking, who the fuck is this Maverick guy anyway, and what has it got to do with Tim Ferriss’ book? And why is he kicking the previous copywriter off?

Sorry for barging in (and kicking out the copywriter) without a proper intro. Let’s start over.

Hi, I’m Maverick - college drop-out, ex-buddhist monk, single-dad, co-founder of one of the largest monthly (non-gov-funded) entrepreneur meet-ups, goes on month-long holidays, cafe-hopping-ocean-dunking-bowl-licking traveller and usually only works 45 to 90 minutes a day. And Tim’s 4-Hour Workweek was the catalyst, the trigger, the switch, the relieve for the itch, that made it all happen.

18th July 2015 | Me, the book that 2.0ed my life, and a bunch of hot chicks at the beaches of Legian, Bali.

So when I was invited by the gang at Coffee Book Club to give a book talk and share my top tips, tricks and techniques I got from living the book, I nearly ran my car over a bunch of china tourist (who just couldn’t decide where to walk and probably deserve to be ran over anyway). Yes, essentially, I was excited, elated, ecstatic even!

And no, you’re not gonna get me just reading off pages of Tim’s book, playing some YouTube clips and showing you some funky slides.

No, that wouldn’t do the book justice.

Instead, you’re gonna get the principles and practices from the book that literally empowered, enabled and I would even go on to say enlightened me.

Yeah, this power-packed session is gonna be jam-packed with KICKASS contents like:
  • Discover how I switch from working 18 hours a day to only 90 minutes, and actually made more money!

  • Check out what apps and tools I had been using that enabled me to travel months in a year and just be lazy!

  • Learn what I teach my 8-year-old son on the concept of money, entrepreneurship and value-creation

  • Dig into my pocket of hacks (please avoid my balls) on marketing technologies that resulted in over 93% of my income

  • Unlock my treasure chest of no-way-it-can-be-that-easy-but-results-do-not-lie mindset strategies that you wish you learned 10 years earlier (no worries, I learned them 10 years too late anyway)

But of course, that may not be enough for you. Which is why I’ll also show you the other-side of the book and give you the the stuff of legends like:
  • How to get FHM’s hottest cover models to start a conversation with you

  • How to use Jedi Mind Tricks to ethically steal business contracts

  • How to have an I-Don’t-Give-A-Fuck attitude and still be lovable

  • How to get multi-million dollar advice from the best subject matter experts for free

  • How to instantly be happier without marijuana and/or masturbation

Oh hey, the copywriter is back! Ciao guys, see you at the event!

Stay awesome!
