A 5 Day weekend isn’t just about “partying” its about Freedom

As a teenager living in Melbourne, Australia I started giving guitar lessons. It then became a successful part-time business. I built a small group of instructors who worked for me. By the time I graduated from high school I had saved enough to buy a one-way ticket to Hollywood, California and pursue my dream of becoming a rock star. I formed a band and went on tour for almost a decade.
I had a strong desire to create an income stream beyond the band. I worked hard and saved diligently to build cash ow in real estate and other investments. It took me eight years to have enough independent cash ow and to walk away from the band and live a 5 Day Weekend.
Your journey will be different. You may reach your goal of having enough independent cash flow sooner. Or, it may take you longer. It will require lots of study, hard work, and grit. If you choose to take the challenge, a life of freedom awaits you. My passions are extreme adventure travel and creating new global enterprises. How you live your own life of freedom is up to you.
You make the choices. The 5 Day Weekend is about more and better choices.
5 Day Weekend isn’t a specific, duplicable, rigid plan. A 5 Day Weekend is both a mindset and strategy.
Every person’s 5 Day Weekend plan will look different. My goal in this book is not to give you a step-by- step plan. That would be impossible, since everyone has different strengths, interests, and opportunities. Rather, my goal is to give you 1) the underlying principles you need to accelerate your plan, and 2) a wide range of possible options you can pursue.
This book and program shows you the big picture, the concept, the vision. To go in depth on individual strategies would require much more than one book. Starter chapters help you examine an idea or strategy and decide if you want to investigate it more.
If you’re new to entrepreneurship and/or investing, you’ll want to read each section in depth. Look for ideas that spark your interest, that seem viable for you, and that you want to explore further. For more experienced readers, you may be able to skim through some of my suggested opportunities and investments, while focusing on the underlying principles and philosophies that set 5 Day Weekend apart from the traditional mindset.
I’ve invited Garrett Gunderson to join me. He is a New York Times bestselling author, a seasoned investor, and the founder of an Inc. 500 firm, Wealth Factory. You will hear my voice throughout the book. Garrett will also take the stage to share his expertise.
This is not a biography. I’ll give you recommendations based on my experience. But the focus is giving you information that will help you examine how you can live a life of more freedom— to create your own vision—then begin to develop your personal plans to realize your dream.
