Score: 3.5/5 (I haven’t found the career listed in the book very appealing personally, but some people might)
I learned about the author, Michael Masterson, through a friend. My friend’s original recommendation was for the book “Ready, Fire, Aim”, but I thought to read this book since it’s in the library.
This genre is a bit out of my typical reading path and I first got interested in the book out of curiosity – on how this can be achieved. After reading the book, though I’m not convinced it’s what I want to do, I do think if you really follow the book’s direction you can become pretty healthy financially.
Masterson is a successful entrepreneur himself and wrote the book to help people build wealth quickly. His background in sales and copywriting makes the book a refreshing perspective for me.
The book is mainly a collection of stories of high net worth individuals, and their stories have a recurring pattern:
- They all earned high incomes.
- They all had equity in a business.
- Most of them invested in real estate.
On top of that, I’ve learned that being a copywriter has a lot of leverage. A great copywriter writes a sales copy once, and can have its message replicated digitally for virtually no cost, and each one can generate a handsome profit. Oh the wonders of the internet and nature of information. : )
There are some good tactical advice as well but I won’t list them here. If you’re interesting in the field of copywriting, sales, or just general wealth building, have a quick look at this book.
