24 hours in the day and the life of Tim Ferriss, Author of the 4-Hour Workweek and 4-Hour Body books.
Tim Ferriss is hands down one of the most influential people in my life. Tim Ferriss has built a brand that revolves strategically around helping others while letting the universe take care of himself. He takes educated risks in life and makes it look easy. Tim has slaved away as the corporate chimp, and he knows the pain that people go through living a “normal” life. In the 4-Hour Work Week, Tim tells us how to escape or minimize the hardship on ourselves. Tim chose the two hottest ideas in today’s day and age, making money and fitness. He talks about making money in his first best selling book 4-Hour Work Week(4HWW), and then his second book demonstrates just how far this young man’s talents go, as he dives into the world of fitness in his second best seller, The 4-Hour Body (4HB). Tim is now putting the finishing touches on his next best seller, The Four Hour Chef. His third book is set to come out later this year sometime in September 2012. We hear some buzz about the new book the 4-Hour Chef in this short 27 min video as well as Tim’s role as an adviser and being a Venture Capitalist (VC).
So what does this extrodinary individual do in a day? Watch this exclusive video that Morgan Spurlock put together in conjuction with Tim to help us understand.
