This page is all about cool stuff I find interesting. It has blogs about running your own business or being a digital nomad, films that are uber motivational and books that might just change your whole perspective on life.

Books

Here is a list of books that I have read which I find totally inspirational, helpful and thought provoking!

The 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris

Before I read this book I was already questioning what I wanted my life to be, I was questioning the 9-5 lifestyle, societies expectations and trying to work out what I wanted to do. What this book did was totally open my eyes to the possibility of running a business and having a lifestyle you could only dream of.

This blog and everything else I am currently doing essentially has come about after reading this book.

Read It!

Losing My Virginity by Richard Branson

Richard Branson is a business Icon. This book is his auto biography and goes into detail about his business ventures and how he grew his empire from practically nothing.

It is really motivational and shows that having a personality in business goes a long way!

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a book about personal finance which challenges your thinking on what are assets and what are liabilities.

For me the key to living a lifestyle I want is to increase the amount of passive income I receive and this book puts the building blocks in place of how to do it.

This is a book I read frequently to keep reminding myself as once again it goes against the western society norms.

Vagabonding: An Un-common Guide to the Art of Long Term World Travel by Rolf Potts

This book has been around a while and is all about taking time off from your normal life to experience what the world has to offer. It covers how to live a life on the road and how to finance your travels.

Whilst is was written quite a while ago now the principles still hold true and is a must for any long term traveller.

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

This is a really old book which gives you 17 rules to success. It really challenges the mind and uses examples to show you how a positive mind really does make all the difference.

I live my life with this motto:

“If your mind can conceive it, and you believe it, you can achieve it!”

This book has a lot of mind strategies that are really useful for a growing business or lifestyle entrepreneur.

The Suitcase Entrepreneur by Natalie Sisson

This is a useful practical book teaching you how top start a freedom business with just a laptop and a phone. It covers useful tools to increase your efficiency giving you more time to live the life you want to.
