Michael Ellsberg and Bryan Franklin think you've been fed a lie: that if you save for decades and invest in 401(k)s, IRAs, and a home, these investments will grow steadily over decades, allowing twenty to thirty years of secure, peaceful retirement.
This might have been true at some point in the last century, but it is not true any longer. If you want to get ahead and enjoy a life of prosperity, the authors argue that you must invest in the most powerful source of wealth you'll ever know: your own earning power.
Ellsberg and Franklin reveal how investing in yourself in various ways can guarantee a return much higher than the stock market or real estate.
Boosting your skills, leadership, persuasion ability, and your network enriches the quality and meaning of your life at the same time that it enriches your wallet.
Why wouldn't you bet on yourself?

Have you ever noticed that there are certain people who seem to get ahead just a bit faster than everyone else? You know, the types who always seem to be a bit ahead of the curve, to get noticed a bit more, and to achieve their goals a bit more quickly than the rest of the pack? And have you ever noticed how much this small edge can matter, and the outsized impact it can have on the trajectory of their careers?
Twenty-four year old entrepreneur Brian Wong is one of these people, having graduated from college by age 18, having raised $24 million in venture capital to start his own company before he turned 25, and having grown that company into a global mobile advertising giant in just 4 years. His secret? The Cheat Code.
Wong believes that most people – even creative people – have a tendency to follow a script; to do things the way others do them simply because that way works. But therein lies the secret at the heart of the Cheat Code: anyone can easily shortcut his or her way to success, simply by going slightly off script; by doing things just a little differently from everyone else. Here, Wong unlocks the power of the Cheat Code through 71 bite-sized and virtually effortless short-cuts to get a leg up on the competition, garner attention for ourselves and our ideas, and accelerate our success. For example:
- Cheat #7: Don't Ask – Announce
- Cheat #16: Know Your Superpower!
- Cheat #32: Make Boldness Your Genius
- Cheat #47: Know Who's the Boss
- Cheat #49: Get a Trademark Haircut
- Cheat #51: Use Exclamation Points
- Cheat #55: Focus on What Won't Change
- Cheat #71: Imagine, What If?
No matter where you aspire to go in your life or career, THE CHEAT CODE will help get you there - faster.
