Chapter 43 - The hardline strategy.

before reading the book I had the same thoughts of you MJ. Nowadays it’s full of moneychasers in the online world. Better to take a look in the offline world.

I just finished the book last night. It’s bittersweet cause now I have to take action, and it’s a bit scary. I’ve gotta breakthrough my barriers and just get to ideas and execution.
It was a good read. I enjoyed the story With the principles integrated. I do think MJ’s writing has matured, and I liked the unorthodox way of getting the story to combine well with the principles by getting you emotionally involved.
im already starting today to get some ideas that make ’CENTS.’

Demarco.
You are a helluva a writer. I do respect you.
My gut instinct told me, Tim Ferris is your competitor. I follow you because you caught the wave in 1999. I don’t follow any bs gurus anymore. Thanks for your all Work. You have my attention.

##### SUMMARY

UNSCRIPTED - The Great Rat Race Escape : From Wage Slavery to Wealth, How to Start a Purpose Driven Business and Win Financial Freedom for a Lifetime
(Yes, really long but I was able to get to work on the cover!)

By all appearances, Jeff and Samantha Trotman are living the American Dream. But behind the white picket fence, they endure an American Nightmare. With little time for each other, a pile of debt, and Ferrari taste on a Ford budget, the ruse of affluence is killing them. Two respectable jobs and a lovely suburban house paint a pretty picture, but behind the ink is a broken marriage rife with meaningless work and dead dreams. And now, with an unplanned pregnancy, they’re facing a mid-life crisis twenty years early.

With little time and looming bankruptcy, the Trotmans are forced to face the red-pill truth they long denied: They were living, but they weren’t alive. Determined to resurrect their life and their marriage, the Trotmans plot a rat-race escape—only to find themselves more thickly in it.

As tensions rise and hope fades, follow along step-by-step as the Trotmans pivot to a new strategy and a new career: starting a business as entrepreneurs.

While they navigate their journey, you’ll learn 120 wealth-building strategies and principles that your mainstream financial guru won’t dare reveal—actionable concepts that will help you profit your way into the Unscripted 1%, an emerging economic class of entrepreneurs who enjoy a lifetime of freedom emancipated from miserly living and Wall Street's "save, pray, and wait" paradigm. Discover how one family escapes the rat-race grind and wins a lifetime of financial freedom, leaving behind the tyranny of meaningless jobs and mediocre living— and how you can too.

  • The Bad Math Principle: Why most people will never escape the rat-race, much less earn financial freedom.
  • The 1/5/10 Strategy: How this one simple exercise will unearth your ultimate dream life while establishing a decision framework for its reality
  • The Honeypot Principle: Why the financial media's "invest a $100/mo for 40 years in indexed-funds" narrative is part of the same rat-race scheme, just a different side of the same rigged coin.
  • The Dual Change Strategy: The two divergent sides of change and how it can make you a fortune.
  • The Value Skew Strategy: How to find literally 1000s of business ideas and why you never need to "disrupt" or invent anything new or novel.
  • The Millionaire Payday Strategy: How to spot opportunities to hire yourself and earn an instant millionaire-making income.
  • The Cinderella Principle: Why starting a business based on a cultural trend or a fad is a horrible idea.
  • The Perseverance Strategy: Never struggle with motivation again; the four necessary ingredients to tap into unlimited motivation and determination, regardless of the obstacles in your way.
  • The Triangulated Value Strategy: Learn how to never quit three-feet from gold: The 3-pronged strategy in maximizing marketing yields while also illuminating the "quit or continue" decision.
  • and over 110+ more!
Don’t let the rat-race and its co-conspirators proclaim your life as non-essential. Don’t let the rat-race entice you to save your life away for the promise of an elderly retirement. Don’t let the rat-race lull you into a tedious existence medicated by television, video games, and trivial sporting events.

Go Unscripted , escape the rat-race, and win your happily-ever-after.

Excellent book. The story of Jeff and Samantha made it more relatable than prior two books. Only have few hours to complete listening, will be done today. Please make this site mobile friendly as well. Responding/Posting to a thread is difficult.

I'm from Balkans and cards are not used often here, so this was my first ever online purchase on Amazon and I think it is truly the best decision I ever made.

Loved the book so far, especially the part about "bad mathematics" I've had so much pressure from my relatives to start college last year and this year too.


They told me:

Just get that piece of paper.
You're going to need it for a job in the future.

People will think lowly of you, if you don't have a degree.

University isn't that expensive here, circa "2500-3000" Dollars per year, but still, I can't imagine wasting 3 years there and hanging out with losers who just want to hang out in coffee shops and smoke weed all day long.



I'm going to buy this as a gift whenever one of my friends has their birthday!

I'm thinking of Spain.

What business are you in?
It's been a heatwave here in Ireland lately! Though the winters can be depressing though they often don't kick in until Nov/December. I hear Grand Canaria is the place to be as it has loads of tax grants for startups and has both types of climate on the North/South side of the Island.

On Chapter 22 and loving MJ's book so far. Didn't realise we were getting both speakers and I just love the variety, plus in the book version you can skip the story parts when you're re-reading the book. It's definitely given me a kick up the a$$ and is highlighting where I'm going wrong so far i.e. Business System Strategy. I might create a simple 1/5/10 printout to help me as I find writing out a 5 minute simple one pager daily helps reinforce my goals... will share when I do.

... and if I may, I'm also enjoying the sub-text! :cool:

You are a helluva a writer. I do respect you.
My gut instinct told me, Tim Ferris is your competitor.

Thank you! As for the TF reference, I don't see myself as having any competition because I'm not in the business of being a guru. I identify as an author who loves to write. I operate no sales funnels, no courses, no seminars, no coaching, nothing. I'm not a figurehead, a podcaster, or a talk show host, nor do I have any interest in being one.

So jealous! I think i need to wait for translation into my origin language. I am not good enough to read a book in english i think..

Then you will have to wait at least a year. That's how long translations take, and that's assuming I start licensing them now.

Great book. Story of Jeff and Samantha made is so personally relatable as compared to MFL

Thank you, that was my objective -- to put TMF and Unscripted into action so the reader could see exactly how it is done.

Loved the book so far, especially the part about "bad mathematics" I've had so much pressure from my relatives to start college last year and this year too.

Yes, math is the golden cipher.

I am in Korea. I don't have a Korean translation yet, so I'm buying an English book from Amazon and reading it. English is difficult for me. I will do my best to read it. Reading will be long. I respect MJ.

"escaping the rat-race, but the side-plot is how one couple reignites their marriage and deals with past traumas."

This is what I really like in this book of yours! I downloaded the 40 pages and now ready to get the full versions.
Thanks MJ!

It took a couple of days before the accompanying PDF was added at the audible page. Clear visuals, Nice Work!

Listening on my commute and during workouts. About halfway now, really like the fictional part of it. Makes the subjects more relatable, and makes you connect on a more personal level. So definitely more engaging!

Hi, just bought it! Right now in the process of developing a web site of speech therapy. Want to develop and online test to evaluate if your child needs help, what you can do from home, speech therapy leads, etc.

Need some motivation to go on, at the moment no visits at the web etc...

Thanks @MJ DeMarco and all you guys for this awesome community.

With little time and looming bankruptcy, the Trotmans are forced to face the red-pill truth they long denied: They were living, but they weren’t alive. Determined to resurrect their life and their marriage, the Trotmans plot a rat-race escape—only to find themselves more thickly in it.

As tensions rise and hope fades, follow along step-by-step as the Trotmans pivot to a new strategy and a new career: starting a business as entrepreneurs.

While they navigate their journey, you’ll learn 120 wealth-building strategies and principles that your mainstream financial guru won’t dare reveal—actionable concepts that will help you profit your way into the Unscripted 1%, an emerging economic class of entrepreneurs who enjoy a lifetime of freedom emancipated from miserly living and Wall Street's "save, pray, and wait" paradigm. Discover how one family escapes the rat-race grind and wins a lifetime of financial freedom, leaving behind the tyranny of meaningless jobs and mediocre living— and how you can too.

  • The Bad Math Principle: Why most people will never escape the rat-race, much less earn financial freedom.
  • The 1/5/10 Strategy: How this one simple exercise will unearth your ultimate dream life while establishing a decision framework for its reality
  • The Honeypot Principle: Why the financial media's "invest a $100/mo for 40 years in indexed-funds" narrative is part of the same rat-race scheme, just a different side of the same rigged coin.
  • The Dual Change Strategy: The two divergent sides of change and how it can make you a fortune.
  • The Value Skew Strategy: How to find literally 1000s of business ideas and why you never need to "disrupt" or invent anything new or novel.
  • The Millionaire Payday Strategy: How to spot opportunities to hire yourself and earn an instant millionaire-making income.
  • The Cinderella Principle: Why starting a business based on a cultural trend or a fad is a horrible idea.
  • The Perseverance Strategy: Never struggle with motivation again; the four necessary ingredients to tap into unlimited motivation and determination, regardless of the obstacles in your way.
  • The Triangulated Value Strategy: Learn how to never quit three-feet from gold: The 3-pronged strategy in maximizing marketing yields while also illuminating the "quit or continue" decision.
  • and over 110+ more!
Don’t let the rat-race and its co-conspirators proclaim your life as non-essential. Don’t let the rat-race entice you to save your life away for the promise of an elderly retirement. Don’t let the rat-race lull you into a tedious existence medicated by television, video games, and trivial sporting events.

Go Unscripted , escape the rat-race, and win your happily-ever-after.

I like that you got the same narrater for the fiction part, but kept yourself for the other half. It was something that really connected me when I first listened to TMF .

Really enjoying this a lot. Feels a bit like xmas morning.

I will definitely be leaving a review but want to wait till I've finished it and take my time writing one. First time in my life I've wanted to draft a review!

Also.. nice reminder on RAS. I can't stop thinking about it when driving around. Don't think I'll ever look at traffic the same way again lol.

##### SUMMARY

UNSCRIPTED - The Great Rat Race Escape : From Wage Slavery to Wealth, How to Start a Purpose Driven Business and Win Financial Freedom for a Lifetime
(Yes, really long but I was able to get to work on the cover!)

By all appearances, Jeff and Samantha Trotman are living the American Dream. But behind the white picket fence, they endure an American Nightmare. With little time for each other, a pile of debt, and Ferrari taste on a Ford budget, the ruse of affluence is killing them. Two respectable jobs and a lovely suburban house paint a pretty picture, but behind the ink is a broken marriage rife with meaningless work and dead dreams. And now, with an unplanned pregnancy, they’re facing a mid-life crisis twenty years early.

With little time and looming bankruptcy, the Trotmans are forced to face the red-pill truth they long denied: They were living, but they weren’t alive. Determined to resurrect their life and their marriage, the Trotmans plot a rat-race escape—only to find themselves more thickly in it.

As tensions rise and hope fades, follow along step-by-step as the Trotmans pivot to a new strategy and a new career: starting a business as entrepreneurs.

Just finished it on Audible. I hope the fact that you added a story will help me remember the laws, if anything it kept it interesting. But who gives someone 11 minutes to sell their farm MJ .

The audiobook is great. Love the style between the story and MJ's parallel insight.
Also really appreciate it switching between a narrator and MJ himself.

The Trotman sex jokes had me cracking up.
