MJ, very excited about your new book coming out! Any update on when it will be released?
I started reading the book. I like it. I reminds me of how author of Economics books Gregg Easterbrook wrote the fictional short story The Leading Indicators about a guy in the rat race. Millionaire Fastlane more or less ignored the saving-money ideal that is so important while starting a business. You don't buy a new car until AFTER your business gets successful! Unscripted, however, noted how important that is. And although I was only able to read a few pages of Wealth Exposed, I like how Gary Patel tells the George-Clooney lookalike that the reason he's not rich is because he went into debt for a Corvette and nice house.
One thing: if MJ heard this story in 1995-96, how was Gary Patel able to talk about driving a crappy PT Cruiser? The first PT Cruiser hit the streets in 1999! PT Cruisers were built on the Dodge Neon platform. Surely Gary Patel drove a Dodge Neon? I don't know though, those Indian guys love the old Japanese cars!
Most interesting read, got me thinking about what influences me.Finally!
I just launched a short story on Kindle (FREE if you have Kindle Unlimited)! After several weeks of modifications, I put my short-story up on Kindle. You might be familiar with it -- it is the heavily modified (and extended) version of the argument I overheard as a limousine driver. (This Kindle version is 4 times longer with 4 times the smackdown!)
Here is the synopsis:
Can a short 18-minute conversation I overheard from a millionaire make you a fortune? It did for me. And it can do the same for you. Go back to 1996 and eavesdrop on the tense 18-minute argument I unwittingly heard. An altercation between two friends. One living a dream. The other faking it. Listen in on the powerful conversation that changed the trajectory of my life and ultimately made me a millionaire— many times over. Delivered in a raw narrative form, step into my shoes as a depressed limousine driver and five-time failed entrepreneur. Witness the argument as I did, an argument that exposed wealth’s guiding first-principles. An poignant story of sacrifice, immutable regret, and life-changing insight... a transcendent tale relevant in an year, any economy, or any country.Discover the right questions and you’ll discover the right answers— answers that will set you free.Based on a true story.

Again, it is based on the conversation I overheard while employed as a limousine driver. If you already downloaded the similar story I offered here for FREE, this public version is a bit more elaborate and about 4X the length. After the conclusion of the story (it's about a 20 minute read) there are 25 questions to ponder, questions to help you *THINK* about your life (and business) going forward!
If you have KU, would appreciate some downloads!

On the execution front, I'm hoping this story serves as a bit of an introduction to my work to new readers in the KU eco-system. In the future, it also can serve as what marketers refer to as a "lead magnet". In the back matter, it includes both TMF and Unscripted previews. If the reader does not have KU, the price for the short book is $1.29, the price of a 3 minute song downloaded on iTunes.
PS: Makes GREAT reading while in QUARANTINE!!!!
