Muse Submission Form
Have you built a successful business or “muse” after reading
The 4-Hour Workweek
If so, I’d love to hear your story!
Any information you enter into this form (excluding contact information, of course) may be reprinted in a book, blog post, or elsewhere. That's the whole point of this form! By clicking "Submit" at the end, you are agreeing to give me (Tim Ferriss) permission to use it gratis.
Of course, one goal is to drive additional traffic and revenue to you. This is a good thing :)
please leave detailed and specific responses
. We can't use submissions that are too general. People should learn something to do, something to avoid, or something amusing in every one of your text answers. Things should be useful (ideally non-obvious), funny, or both.
Again, thanks for sharing!
