I read a book last summer really opened my eyes. It was written by a late 20s Internet entrepreneur who calls himself a “drug dealer,” but actually just sells natural brain and body supplements. The book is called The 4-Hour Work Week Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich. Instead of being a small business owner in order to “buy yourself a job” you should strive to be the owner in a hands off business that creates passive income (Robert Kiyosaki-ish). Unlike Kyosaki this guy is really living and didn’t make his fortune in telling others how to make theirs through books. You can Order 4-Hour Workweek at Amazon.com.
