    Good video. I think reality is inbetween, about 10-12 hour work day or the 70 hour work week. :)

    A lot of people get excited reading the Four Hour Work Week (I did), thinking that it’s incredibly easy to generate revenue for yourself from a product that you outsource. It’s a lot of work before you even get to reap the rewards, which most of the time aren’t that much.

    I found a lot of value in this, however, they failed to understand the point of the 4-hour work week. The author did work very hard to get his business to a point that it could be automated and he could scale his time back. I don’t think some of the panelists even read the book.

    Also, the panelists are involved in multi-million dollar companies. Tim’s book is targeted for people that simply want to replace their full-time income by finding a niche. Or for busy owners and executives of established businesses who want to scale back their workload and delegate more effectively.
