About the Author
Armed with nothing but a couple MacBooks, degrees in Marketing and Education, and an insatiable drive to make their lives matter and do work they love…
Chris and Dave offer a pretty unique perspective. They've lived in multiple states and countries and have backpacked through different parts of the world. They have worked dozens of jobs and even founded multiple early-stage companies.
They are absolutely passionate about inspiring people to define what they want out of life and grow into the best version of themselves. Unfortunately, there is a growing disconnect between what people want from their lives and what they ultimately get.
That is why this book had to be written.

Then it takes you through some of their lovely experiences both their crashes and their soaring flights as well as action thoughts/steps/iniatives as to what works, how it works and why it works.
One of the most important aspects is easily breezed through but don't: "What is your mind thinking day in and day out about who you are?" Discipline here is absolutely essential and he gives a lovely story of how and why.
What could have been done better was focus on one aspect and talk about it in detail and really give value to readers.
Some parts are standard self help book stuff (like mindset), but the best part about each section of this book is that it gives real life examples AND most importantly exact action steps to take to move yourself forward in each area.
This is a really well written book and I love the 3 chapters at the end that give you actual advice on travel hacking, outsourcing your life and creating a Kickstarter campaign. The only thing missing were the hard core action steps for successful outsourcing and Kickstarter. The rest of the book had specific steps but these two parts didn't. I would like to see that in an updated version.
Overall, a fab book with realistic and doable action steps no matter whether you are lost, and entrepreneur finding their feet or your know you want to have your own business but don't know where to start... This is a great place!
As they point out, "When we live through empowering beliefs, we are more likely to reach the end goal." And that's why this short book is so valuable. The authors not only inspire, but they urge you on to take action steps to actually think empowering thoughts, to actually have the courage to follow your dreams. These guys really care about their readers and it shows. Personally, this book has given me lots of things to think about and lots of ways that I can improve my mentality, my networking and my purpose.
If you're thinking about whether or not to buy it, do it. You won't regret it. Your future self will thank you for it.
Maybe an updated version would be awesome Dave?

We always focus on being realistic, but never focus on what is truly possible. This book will help change that.
