Overview

Olvídate del trasnochado concepto de jubilación y deja de aplazar tu vida: no hace falta esperar; existen demasiadas razones para no hacerlo. Si tu sueño es dejar de depender de un sueldo, viajar por el mundo a todo tren, ingresar más de 10.000 euros al mes o, simplemente, vivir más y trabajar menos, este libro es la brújula que necesitas. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering the question. Depending on when you ask this controversial Princeton University guest lecturer, he might answer: “I race motorcycles in Europe.” “I ski in the Andes.” “I scuba dive in Panama.” “I dance tango in Buenos Aires.” He has spent more than five years learning the secrets of the New Rich, a fast-growing subculture who has abandoned the “deferred-life plan” and instead mastered the new currencies—time and mobility—to create luxury lifestyles in the here and now. Whether you are an overworked employee or an entrepreneur trapped in your own business, this book is the compass for a new and revolutionary world. Join Tim Ferriss as he teaches you: • How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want • How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs • How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist • How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and freuent "mini-retirements" • What the crucial difference is between absolute and relative income • How to train your boss to value performance over presence, or kill your job (or company) if it’s beyond repair • What automated cash-flow “muses” are and how to create one in 2 to 4 weeks • How to cultivate selective ignorance—and create time—with a low-information diet • What the management secrets of Remote ControlCEOs are • How to get free housing worldwide and airfare at 50–80% off • How to fill the void and create a meaningful life after removing work and the office You can have it all—really.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ferriss is an entrepreneur, public speaker, and self-proclaimed vagabond who was named one of the Most Innovative Business People by Fast Company in 2007 and Greatest Self-Promoter of All Time by Wired magazine in 2008. He focused on neuroscience and East Asian studies at Princeton and now lectures there on high-tech entrepreneurship. In his best-selling book, Ferriss makes the case for abandoning outdated assumptions about life and work and describes how to become more efficient so that one works less while still enjoying a life of luxury. His recipe for reinvention requires the ability to practice the 80/20 rule to make effective use of time, the knowledge to use technology to generate income while you are sleeping or otherwise enjoying life, and the self-confidence to manage people and resources remotely. The title alone will surely capture any reader's attention, but the life/work balance philosophy and prescription will appeal to the fast-growing Latino entrepreneur community. The information about developing and managing an online business is useful, practical, and much needed by a Latino audience that often does not have access to innovative business approaches. Includes many useful web sites and resources; highly recommended for all public, academic, and special business libraries, as well as bookstores.—Yolanda J.
