This is something that, while I am on my own journey to financial freedom, is at the heart of what I'm trying to learn and apply. And the best part of this book is the power that can be unlocked by APPLYING what you learn from Vincent. This is one of the most practical, applicable financial books I've ever read.
- I dug in deeper on paying off our family debt, having paid off $17,000 since beginning this book in 2016.
- I optimized my freelance cleaning biz to work 1.5 days for the same income I used to earn at 5, thus moving me from Phase II to Phase III of Vincent's 5 Phases. I am so close to Phase IV right now and enjoying the smallest fruits of freedom!
- I have better health, better relationships, and less stress in my life so I can be more present for my wife and 5 kids.
This book is not meant to be read, rather STUDIED and APPLIED. Here are my favorite parts of the book, hopefully Vincent won't mind the quotes -
"Every day of my life has been today. Not yesterday or tomorrow; not the past or the future. It’s just today. And if you make today better than yesterday, the past will be quickly forgotten and the future will become incredibly bright."
"Lincoln told the group that having an independent livelihood was at the center of the American Dream. That the only reason to work for someone else was to get your feet under you, figure out what people needed, and then go set up shop for yourself. He wanted you to create a life of personal sovereignty, liberty, and unmatched freedom. It was almost insulting to work for
someone else for an extended period of time."
I truly believe this book should and will hit the national best-seller list because it is a unique hybrid of Dave Ramsey's "The Total Money Makeover" and Tim Ferris's "The Four-Hour Work Week". Plus, I love Seth Godin's work and he endorsed this book personally. That was another reason why I wanted to read it so bad!
How many people go through life day by day with no real hope of ever getting out of the rut life has become? Zig Ziglar used to say a “rut is just a grave with the ends kicked out.” The simile is apropos, for so many give up and live that life of “quiet desperation.”
Vincent and his wife found their way out of that desperate lifestyle. Easy? No. Nothing in life of any value is. Doable? Absolutely, and even better than just telling their story of getting out of debt—including their mortgage—in only four years, he tells us how we can do it, too. By each of us becoming a photographer? No. We must discover our own gifts and abilities that have been sublimated to the 40-hour workweek (Is there such a thing anymore?) and then put those gifts and abilities into practice and live lives of discipline. Or as Dave Ramsey so aptly phrases it, “Live like no one else, so that later, you can live like no one else.”
I’m more than familiar with the principles Vincent laid out in this book, but I learned much from him. His storytelling draws you in, and before you know it, you’ve absorbed another lesson, and you have to set the book down and ponder for a bit. If you are looking for a magic solution to debt and a life of ease with no discomfort, don’t bother picking up this book. However, if you really want to find a way to live the life you’ve always dreamed of, you will learn much here.
