Let me share with you a secret.
Timesby Book Notes
A secret that led me from living in poverty with little hope that things would ever improve.....

....to a life that I could have only dreamt about.

As I grew older I became more and more disenchanted with school, Liverpool and my peers. I became a loner. A social misfit. And a very spotty one at that. The only place that I felt relaxed and comfortable was the local library. There I could escape into other worlds.

Now this newsletter isn't for just anybody. And it wouldn't be unusual for me to decline your attempts to subscribe to it. But if you are serious about creating a better life for yourself then I'll explain further.

Dear Friend,

If you want the rare ability to drastically improve your life no matter your starting point in life, then this newsletter is for you.

Here's the deal:

I created a newsletter called....

Timesby Book Notes.

I started out my life in a council house in Liverpool. Back in the days when the toilets where outside. It was at the start of the 'Militant' labour movement and a national economic downturn.

There was never a lot of money about.....or jobs for that matter. Schools were a joke and life on the streets was mean.

Deep inside me I knew that I didn't belong there and that life had so much more to offer. But I didn't know where to start.

As I grew older I became more and more disenchanted with school, Liverpool and my peers. I became a loner. A social misfit. And a very spotty one at that. The only place that I felt relaxed and comfortable was the local library. There I could escape into other worlds.

At 14 I abandoned school and spent all day and everyday at the library. I created my own curriculum and stumbled across my very first book on Psychology; BF Skinner!



I read a book called 'Release your brakes, and unbeknownst to me it marked the start of an amazing journey from social misfit with no hope whatsoever.....



......to somebody that would start, build and sell businesses , travel the world, write books and create a life of total freedom from the social norms of what is now called the 'rat race'.



But at the core of my philosophy is something that all the great men and women of history have recognised. It's the power of knowledge derived from reading of books.
The secret is this........



.....every single problem that you will ever face has already been successfully solved by somebody else.

More to the point....

They sat down and distilled all of the lessons and experiences into a document that you could probably digest in less than a day if your life depended upon it.

Books.

Once I'd discovered how to read books properly my life changed forever. The single most important reason that I'm able to read every single day from 6am until 10pm is that I have taken all of that wisdom and applied it.

Every time I had a problem in business or life I simply went to the library and tried to find successful people who had dealt with the problem in the past and found a solution.

This isn't rocket science. Why would anybody try to work it all out from scratch.

These people are our virtual mentors! Here are some of the people who have been my virtual mentors over the years; Sir Richard Branson, Felix Dennis, Steve Peters, Buddha, Marcus Aurelius, Nasim Taleb, Mickey Singer, Arnold Schwarzenegger, J.D Rockefeller.

Every single problem I have ever had in my life has likely been experienced by someone far cleverer than I am. Thankfully, some of those people had the forethought and inclination to write about those problems.

This is why I love books so much. Anything I struggle with has a potential solution just sitting on a shelf waiting for me. I am not bright enough to work a lot of this out from scratch.

Once people 'twigged' that I loved books so much, they would send me tweets, texts and emails asking what I was reading. So, I put together an email list so that I could leverage the situation by sharing it with as many people as possible. The list now has close to 10k subscribers.

I want you to have a resource for finding books that may solve problems in your own life.

I read every single day. 6 am till I go to bed. I even get up on the weekend early before my babies wake up and sneak off to read before returning home to spend time with my family. If I find something useful from all that obsessive activity then I share it with my subscribers for FREE!

But as I said at the start this isn't for everyone. I want people on this list that want to put into action what we can learn from books. People who are willing to engage with me and add thoughtful comments.People who actually read what I put out and look forward to the content.



Often I delete people from the list who either don't engage and just lurk.



In return you'll find me very very approachable and willing to support you to the best of my ability.
This is isn't a business for me! It's something I love.



My actual business is in the bricks and mortar of waste management.

But if you're intelligent, curious, easy going etc then I'd love you to join. You can sign up below;
