The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich

by Timothy Ferriss


Reviewers Thoughts

‘The 4-Hour Workweek’ does not set out to wave a banner for the blind or those with disabilities, but it is a gem for shaking up the way we think about work and money. As someone rooting for the blind community, this book struck a chord with me, offering not just inspiration but practical strategies that anyone—especially those facing additional barriers—can use to create their own income streams.


Work Smarter not Harder

Ferriss challenges the norm of the 9-5 grind and pushes the idea of outsourcing tasks to make life more manageable. Now, this is not a foreign concept for many of us with disabilities who already hire interpreters or assistants, but many of us avoid this out of fear of something going wrong. Ferriss addresses this and urges specificity when delegating, and the examples he gives are a game-changer for me.


Low Risk Not No Risk

The book dives into online businesses with little to no upfront investment. Ferriss uses real-world examples to show you how you can set up online companies that you can test without risking bankruptcy. Plus, he introduces the idea of not even touching the products you sell—outsourcing manufacturing and fulfillment, there-by taking many accessibility challenges out of the equation. Sounds too good to be true, but he has produced case studies that show it can bring in serious cash.


Not A Formula, An Inspiration

Sure, Ferriss is not promising a foolproof plan with zero risks, but reading, I could totally envision adapting his ideas to my own situation. It has me daydreaming about breaking free from the regular grind.
