  1. I learned about the 80/20 concept from The 4-Hour Workweek and applied it to my love of playing guitar! We focus on 20% content allowing students to rapidly play lots of great songs in a short period of time. Thank you Tim for the inspiration and motivation to start a new business!


  2. Pacing over 300k this year, this blog funnels traffic into a high ticket coaching.

    What started it all? Tim Ferriss, and the 4hww – which gave me the guidance of only focusing on a business that could be automated and location-independent. It lead me to travel and live in central america for 9 months in 2013, and becoming fully retired in early 2015.


  3. Thank you Tim for creating the four hour work week. I listen to the audiobook regulary and absorb your teachings mate.

    2 years ago I travelled for 11 months using automation to minimize my work time while traveling. Sold everything before leaving and had a blast and 0 stress.

    Now a few years on from the trip have moved forward with my Muse but it really is not as this is my dream change the world project.

    But took all your teachings and training and just launched v2 of our WordPress plugin and shattered some personal records for downloads. Already 2 CEO’s have contacted me.

    Love to tell you more but got to run…

  4. My partner and I started an online saddlery buisness after being inspired from 4HWW. Appx $8500 turn over in first two weeks followed by $17,000 the next month. Amazing, thought we had made it. Unfortunately our supplier let us down big time and late deliverys meant refunds (bugger). Still turned over $109,000 in our first year. Learnt a lot, particularly on testing suppliers! Currently working on getting orders on time which is possible, but difficult. Have also massively improved our marketing system, built a 1000+ person database who we also sell horse jumps to. Sent a special out last year and sold $4500 worth of product in two days. Not bad. Havent had a 9-5 job in a year. Wouldnt say im financially free yet, but getting there.


  5. I learned about the 4 Hour Work Week from an employee who successfully lied his way to a far off remote office and stole many clients. Fortunately, I finished the book before he could “Fire” his boss… you should have seen the look on his face lol. I then fired all employees, sold, and bankrupted the businesses and created a risidual income automated system without me involved. I now live one week with my kids then the next week doing whatever the hell I want. Thanks Tim!!!


  6. While building my first business I considered giving up because I was having difficulty scaling. A couple of friends suggested that I switch the format of my product from finished / turn-key to a kit format. I was utterly convinced that this product would not sell and didn’t want to develop something I didn’t think would work. Fortunately one of the friends had read the 4 hour work week. He suggested that I test viability of the idea by creating a “fake” product online and offering it for sale (we didn’t actually sell any non-existent products), an idea he had pulled from your book. To my absolute amazement, people tried to buy. Based on this confirmation I developed real products. The business took off, I quit my day job, and I’m now living the good life. I must admit, I have not read the entire book, but definitely acquired it after the test product idea worked.
