The 4 Hour Work Week

The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New RichThis is one of my all time favorite books. I have read  The 4 Hour Work Week three times and its a regular “go to” on my night stand. Those of you who know me, already know I will probably never retire, but if I was like most Americans, and followed the “retirement age” logic (whatever that is) to have the life experiences one usually dreams about when they retire, I would be doomed to repeat the mistakes made by most people.  There are many things I want to do with my life that involve two things – money and the most difficult thing to find – time.

Last Fall, my husband and I went on vacation and I saw the Grand Canyon for the very first time. It was awe-inspiring, spiritual and something I wish I hadn’t waited so long to experience.

In addition to the amazing views – what I saw were LOTS of people my age and older on canes and in wheelchairs seeing one of the wonders of the world for the very first time. It may or may not be true – but my perception was that these people did what 90% of Americans do – they work like dogs to barely survive for the best years of their lives waiting for “retirement” when they can try to do all the things they have always wanted to do during the failing years of their life. How sad and how backwards.

Read this book. It will make you think about your priorities and help you have a better quality of life. Isn’t it time you thought about YOU?

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career.

    Sherri Balzer is an excellent job recruiter. I had been working with her for more than 3 months where I had multiple job interviews with different companies. She is always very detailed, caring, patient, and most of all very professional. I turned down multiple job offers because they were not a good fit for me and Sherri understood my reasons. Instead of losing hope in me she kept working hard looking for other companies that suited my skill set and knowledge. We found the perfect company and I got the best job offer available. I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career. Respectfully,

    Andrew Figueroa

  • Working with Jillian and Patrice & Associates Hospitality Recruitment was an amazing experience.  First of all, the work Jillian did on my resume before presenting me to the client was outstanding.  I really feel that it presented me in the best light for the client (and it worked because I got the job!).  I’ve worked with a lot of recruiting firms before and the level of service provided by Jillian was far and above the rest of the industry.  Jillian was always available to talk any time of the day and really made me feel like she wasn’t just concerned with placing a candidate - she also cared about my happiness and well-being throughout the process.
