Tim Ferriss: Best-Selling Author of The Four Hour Work Week, Best of iTunes Podcaster, and Tech Investor

Play
Read more
Tim Ferriss discusses being an online influencer, a multiple best-selling author of The Four Hour Work Week and four other books, depression, and why physical exercise is so important to him.

People sometimes refer to him as the Oprah of Audio because his podcast has been downloaded more than 500 million times.

He’s also got the angel investor golden touch with stakes in Uber, Facebook, Shopify, Duolingo, and Alibaba.

But this episode isn’t completely feel good, pixie dust, and unicorns. We delve into heavy topics such as depression and suicide. He also explains the role of physical exercise in his wellbeing, why he doesn’t use social media anymore, and how to grow a podcast.

We did geek out about John McPhee after we discovered our mutual admiration for his work. I know this is off-topic, but after you listen to this episode, do yourself a favor and read any of John McPhee’s books.

This episode is brought to you by reMarkable, the paper tablet. It's my favorite way to take notes, sign contracts, and save all the instruction manuals to all the gadgets I buy. Learn more at remarkable.com

A Play-by-Play Breakdown of How Tim Ferriss Launches a Book

Play
Read more

Tim Ferriss needs no introduction. He not only hosts one of the world's most successful podcasts and maintains one of the world's most successful blogs but he was also an early investor in companies like Uber and Shopify and is the author of five #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers, including The 4-Hour Workweek and Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers

Since there's no one alive who's better at launching books, I decided to do something new for this episode: break down exactly what he does and how he does it. His tactics include reading 50 different books on his book's topic before he even starts writing, offering spectacular launch bonuses for those who buy his books in bulk, attending conferences in order to chat with bloggers and influencers and way too many others to list in this post—so many that you'll soon learn why this required its own episode.

If you like this sort of episode, I'd be excited to do more on other people who are brilliant at launching books but would be hard to land on the show. It's fun to research and talk about how someone like Ferriss manages to do what he does (spoiler alert: it doesn't involve just getting lucky). Please let me know in the form of an Itunes review if you want me to do more of these. In the meantime, enjoy this breakdown!

About Your Host Jim Harshaw

My name is Jim Harshaw. And I know where you’re at. You’re working hard and qualified for what you do but you aren’t getting what you want. You have plans on getting to the C-suite or launching a business but ultimate success seems as far away today as ever. You’re in the right place because you can get there from here.

And I can help.

Who I Am

I’m a speaker, coach, and former Division I All-American wrestler that helps motivated former athletes to reach their full potential by getting clarity on what they really want and taking aggressive action to lead their ideal life not just despite their prior failures but because of them.

I’m a husband and father of four. And I’m a serial entrepreneur. I’ve launched multiple successful businesses as well as the obligatory failed one. I’ve been the executive director of a non-profit and have raised millions of dollars. I’ve worked in sales. I’ve even been a Division I head coach. While I was born in a blue-collar home I have spent my life surrounded by Olympians, CEO’s and millionaires.

Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

I’ve been lucky.

I’ve learned the habits of successful people and guess what. You’re just like them. I know because I know your type. You’re programmed for hard work, which is a prerequisite for success, but you’ve never been shown how to use what you know to create the life you want with the tools you have.

I will show you how.

Why You Are Here

You've worked hard to achieve greatness. You’ve set goals and maybe even set records. You’ve definitely failed and you’ve at some point found yourself questioning if you were on the right track.

You need to understand this: You are far more prepared to succeed than those who’ve not tried, competed, struggled and overcome like you have. That’s the value of your education as someone who aims high. You are prepared to be as successful as your wildest dreams will allow.

Here I will teach you, with the help of brilliant minds that have been shaped by failure, struggle, and adversity, to be who you want to be. I sense that you want this because you have read this far.
