More and more, I like reading books written by entrepreneurs, which have a lot of practical content and a lot of transferable knowledge that is important even if there is no need to start a business.
Today I would like to recommend such an original book. Personally, I think this book is worth reading again and again, if you have ever read the original book I recommend: Rework
After a casual glance through this article, you will download today's recommended book and enjoy reading it, possibly even rereading it a few times.
Naval Ravikant is a well-known Silicon Valley angel investor who has invested in the early days of Twitter, Uber and other well-known technology companies. Naval Ravikant is also a successful entrepreneur who founded AngelList, a world-famous equity-based crowdfunding platform.
There is no doubt that he has a great success in business, which in itself makes many entrepreneurs love and follow him, but the reason why more people love him is that he often shares his personal thoughts.
He posted a series of tweets in 2018, sharing how to succeed without luck through his peculiar tweetstorm habit, which later gained a lot of Internet buzz and retweets.
The article has a lot to do with wealth, and the author has a whole personal logic, such as that we need to pursue wealth rather than money in order to generate lasting passive income, rather than selling our personal time all the time.
It's not easy to achieve this goal, it can take decades, but in fact, along the way, we will be better than before, so start with a few things we can do around us.
For example, I was interested in financial management last year, so I bought a little fund for experiment. This year, I read some financial management books, so I put all my savings on the platform.
At present, I have a good profit, and I know a little bit more about financial management. In fact, many people have known about investment and financial management for a long time, and have made a lot of money, but for me, this is a small progress. They are more willing to save money and start thinking more about how to earn it.
In the Internet era, we should learn to use leverage, which can also be translated into influence. Let alone how to achieve success in economic benefits, we will exercise our ability in the process.
Influence is typically found in the code and media industries, where there is likely to be no marginal cost to the product -- say, if you sell an extra video course, there is no additional production cost.
So I suggest you read this book a few times, don't agree with everything, take Naval's wisdom and make your own choices.
