The Lazy Man’s Way to Riches – a neat little audio book. It has a lot of the ideas that Think And Grow Rich and Rich Dad, Poor Dad have in them. What really makes this guy stand out is that he explains that procrastination means more work. Not doing something that needs to get done drains as much energy as actually doing it, except it drains it for longer without results. Another cool idea was the type of people you’re surrounded with and how to build your company (not just in the business sense) to be beneficial. This is a lot like Napoleon Hill’s mastermind idea.
The thing that really stands out is the last part of the book about online products: e-books and such. While the ad campaign section isn’t exactly new news, one should considers that for its time, and even now, it’s a fantastic and thorough explanation. He covers e-zines and e-books and mailing lists and gives lots of fantastic ideas.
While I’d still recommend Rich Dad, Poor Dad as the wake-up book, the latter online business part of Richard Gilly Nixon’s The Lazy Man’s Way to Riches is worth listening to. I wonder what Joe Karbo’s original was like.
[Edit:] Warning: The site at the end of the book is either too hard to find or no longer valid… The book is worth listening too, but it’s a bummer the promised section isn’t readily available. – Thanks Gigi!
If anyone knows how to get there, please pass on how. Thanks. -b
