I’m a lifestyle entrepreneur focused on long term financial freedom strategies. I use passive investments & cash flow to fuel my lifestyle.

The best way to get to know a person is by the books they’ve read and the places they’ve traveled.   Most of what I have learned is through life experiences, audiobooks and podcasts.  Here are a collection of media that I found quite influential in my entrepreneurial journey.

The E-Myth Revisited

This is my favorite business book of all time. Michael Gerber is a great storyteller – he explains why most small businesses fail.  He makes one realize that a company success is based on its’ systems and processes – not the hard work of a single individual.  This is a highly recommended read.

The One Thing

Gary Keller simplifies the concept that there’s ONE Thing behind every successful person. By understanding and applying it, you can concurrently do less and have more, get extra-ordinary results and lead an extra-ordinary life.

Willing to Fail

I met Brian Scudamore at a local event and was very intrigued by his entrepreneurial story.  He too is a Vancouver native and founder of 1-800-GOT-JUNK.  Failure is a big part of his success and Brian articulates this well.  He shares his story of how he built a business which now has sales over one million dollars per day.

The 4 Hour Work Week

Tim Ferriss delivers the blueprint on how to define success and live life on your own terms. A paradigm shift in thinking – How can we work to live without making life all about work? Tim shows that the “New Rich” are all about their lifestyle output and not monetary equity.  Very interesting read.

Start with Your Why

A book on todays’ leadership style. Simon states that the ability to inspire those around you and to achieve remarkable things starts with WHY. In essence, any organization can explain what it does; some can explain how they do it; but very few can clearly articulate their “Why”. Those who start with WHY always inspire.

A Bad Case of Capitalism

Shiraz Bolalia is a true entrepreneur with an amazing life story. I have been fortunate to have met him through my family in Bellingham. We’ve been invited to his annual summer parties and got to learn more at each event. His luxury compound (over 100 acres) overlooks Whatcom lake with an amazing view. He is an incredibly generous person with an amazing attitude on life.

Rich Dad Poor Dad

Robert Kiyosaki has had the greatest impact on my view on money and investing. He makes a great comparison using his poor dad and rich dad’s life experiences. His main focus is on financial literacy and understanding what money is. He repeatedly states that one needs to understand money and have open discussions about money in order to achieve financial success.

Who Not How

Traditional entrepreneurs ask the question “How can we do this?” or “How do we achieve this goal?” instead of “Who can help us to achieve this?” or “Who can do this for us?”. Dan Sullivan explains how to work with the right people to expand your vision, resources and personal growth for dramatically better results in business and life.
