I have, 3 times. Have you actually tried doing what he says? His writing is compelling, and his ideas have merit. But having taken his advice and spent thousands trying to kick off a half dozen of my own businesses, using his very methods, I can't say it's as easy as he makes it appear to be int he book.

Without turning this into a Ferris convo, I'll just say that he had a business set up a running for years before he virtualized it... and even according to him, you have to blood/sweat/tears the thing before you get there... it's VERY tough to just jump into a totally virtual, turn-key, business requiring nothing more than a couple of hours to run, in a couple of weeks or months.

Looking back on it, I should have just bought a boat. At least I'd be on the water now.
