About Buy Your Own Island
To “buy your own island” is a metaphor and a challenge to take action and take one step forward today on the path to getting the things you really want in life. The passions that REALLY excite you, that you’ve perhaps kept hidden or put away on the shelf. Whatever it is you dream about doing, having, or being, this book was created with the simple intent to help you make it reality.
The book’s author was an overworked and frustrated entrepreneur who was trapped in his own business. Finally he decided enough was enough, and took dramatic actions to reverse course. He gathered his closest friends and confidantes and they challenged each other to dig deep, re-discover their hidden passions, and architect what they needed to do to reinvent their lives.
Whatever your biggest lifelong dream is, whether its to purchase your own island, travel the world for a year, or set up a profitable business from home, it can be practical and achievable with the right mindset, tools and plan. This book is based on conversations, interviews, research, and decades of combined experience from people doing the most extraordinary things around the globe. These people are no smarter than you are. They have no particular advantages, no special talents, connections, or resources. They simply made a decision one day to do what they wanted, and followed a plan to make it happen.
