In the third episode of The School of Greatness I interview a hero for most entrepreneurs, Tim Ferriss.
It was five years ago when I was introduced to Tim’s international bestselling book The 4-Hour Work Week. My brother gave it to me for a Christmas present while I was recovering from surgery due to a career ending football injury, and my life hasn’t been the same since.
The ideas in his book literally opened my mind to what was possible with building an online business (without trading time for dollars) and I can attribute millions of dollars in sales made in the last few years from the ideas in his book.
