    For the New Rich, wealth means luxury in the here and now.

    So you’re working 40 hours a week. Maybe you’re working even more than that. You’re constantly exhausted. You’re constantly stressed. You’d give anything to extract yourself from the daily grind – but it feels like you just can’t. You’re stuck in your job. You need your job.

    Well, there is a recipe for escaping the nine-to-five. There is a formula. And that’s exactly what we’ll be exploring in these blinks. But, before we get to the formula, let’s talk about where you’re escaping to, and how the author got there.

    The goal is to become a member of the New Rich. The New Rich is a subculture characterized by mobility and financial freedom. They’re tied down by nothing. They decide where they go. They decide what they do. They’ve realized that the right moment to live your dreams, to really live you life, is now

    But how do you do this? How do you live your dreams, how do you live your life to the fullest, right now? Well, here’s something else the New Rich have realized. Basically, you only need two things to accomplish this: you need more freedom and more free time.

    See, what most people associate with millionaires – extensive travels, extravagant hobbies, maybe a butler – essentially add up to two things: more freedom and more free time. And you can have those things without having millions of dollars in your bank account. 

    So that’s the goal: get more freedom, get more free time, and join the New Rich.

    The author got both of these things sort of by accident. Back in 2004, he was in a situation that, maybe, is similar to yours. He was overworked. He was exhausted. He was actually so overworked and exhausted that he suffered a burnout and had to take a break. But this break turned out to be a blessing. During his time off, he traveled around the world and realized that he could run a profitable business from wherever he was. And that he could do it with minimal effort. And, just like that, he joined the ranks of the New Rich.

    Sounds like magic – but it’s not. Remember, if you want to live a life of luxury, all you need are two: more freedom and more free time. They are the prerequisites for the ability to do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it, and from wherever you want to do it – and neither can be achieved by working a standard 40-hour week.

    So let’s get to that formula – the formula that’ll give you all the freedom and free time that you could ever wish for.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
