I don't think I've ever said this about a book before, but I wish I'd read this 10 years ago.

See, I did Unscripted sort of backwards. I've lived "unscripted" enough for the past couple of decades that when I started to tell my daughter something from the book and started out, "I'm reading this book called 'Unscripted'," she snorted and made a comment about redundancy.

For many years, I've lived more or less like I am retired. I was able to support myself and my daughter comfortably working 15-25 hours/week, and pretty much on whatever schedule I chose. I never really had much interest in passive income, for two reasons. First, I liked my work and it didn't really interfere with our lives at all. Second, everyone I was seeing talk about passive income was babbling some infomercial BS, and I really wasn't interested in rigging up a "money funnel" that didn't add value for anyone.

In 2012/2013, I learned my lesson--but it was the wrong one. I got seriously ill out of nowhere. I spent October of 2012 driving all over the east coast visiting old friends, showing my daughter Plimouth and Niagara Falls and Coney Island, visiting galleries along the Cape without a care in the world, and by the end of November I was sleeping on a mattress on my living room floor because I couldn't walk up and down the stairs and trying to figure out who I wanted to finish raising my daughter if I didn't make it.

I burned through my savings and emerged the following July with about $20,000 in debt. I got back to work, paid it off in less than a year, and resolved never to make that mistake again. Except, in my mind, the change I needed to make was that I needed a bigger buffer.

I never started thinking about passive income at all until my daughter joined me in my business and I started thinking about retiring and wanting to keep the business viable for her to continue without me. I made a plan for that, but it wasn't a high priority and kept getting back-burnered. I STILL didn't connect passive income with the issue I faced in 2012/13 and how it could have been avoided until I read Unscripted. It's pretty obvious, I know, but my whole perspective on passive income had been formed around the sort of fly-by-night schemes I'd seen being pimped (remember those emails that used to go around that said MULTIPLE STREAMS OF INCOME over and over while talking about how effortless it was?), and I'd never really thought about it as something substantive and reliable. The dumbest part is that I've known for at least a few years exactly what I want to do and how to do it.

Last sip of coffee.
Last page read.
I'm finally done, team.
Time to buy AB and SO shares.
Also, it would be neat to have The Millionaire package of both books in one released in gold and silver like the Star Wars remasters VHS from the late 90's.

Just finished it today and loved every bit of it. I feel like half of it resonated strongly with how I already think about wealth, the other half was eye opening and inspiring. Fantastic read.

Just finished listening to this book on Audible (great narrator!) and (among other takeaways) I've become a lot more conscious about how I spend my time. Looking forward to re-listening to both this an millionaire fastlane during some upcoming holiday travel.

Read it almost completely (still reading the final chapters) and it is a great book with all the details on how to be as an UNSCRIPTED person. Also loved the suggested read The One Thing (got the audiobook) and will be pouring through the other suggestions thereafter.
Thanks so much for your insight and work to build a framework to build a business to go UNSCRIPTED!

I've listened to it 3 times already and am ordering the book as well to highlight the most important parts. Am taking what I learned and doing the brainstorming now!

Read UNSCRIPTED! As I read this book before TMF, it really changed the way I view the world:
- Critical thinking: thinking past the agenda pushed; thinking like a producer
- Being content with differing views with others: mediocre people and mediocre thoughts produce mediocre lives
- The existence of the fastlane: I was never one to consider entrepreneurship seriously, as no one had educated me about it - until I discovered MJ's works and read on myself to discover more.
