What is Tim Ferriss Up To?

Remember the 4 Hour Workweek with Tim Ferriss? I remember when that book hit the marketing waves, and every marketer who worked day and night thinking about business, producing products, and marketing other people's products dreamt of doing what they do but in 4 hours per week time!  I can name two people who took off immediately:  Kevin Wilke and John Reese.  They both said goodbye to their normal 6 am to midnight jobs to travel the world and experience what the world could teach them.  I think we all want that to a certain degree.   Like we're going to step foot on a beach one morning and the skies are going to open up and fill our souls with all of life's secrets.  For me, I hunger for balance within structure.  If you haven't read “The 4-Hour Workweek” then get it today!  I love that book..  it reminds me that life is too short to become a financial slave and freedom can be yours once you setup the “residual income” that you need to survive.  (click the image to find out what Tim Ferriss is up to now!)

This morning, I was searching templates for disclaimers and disclosures for my websites (to be FTC compliant) when I stumbled upon Tim Ferriss who is generous enough to let you use his disclaimers! This disclaimer is true for this website so feel free to use it on yours as well…

Tim Ferriss and Website Disclosure

From Tim Ferriss:

This blog is not primarily financially driven. I put it up in 2007 to build a community and learn from all you smart people.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

First, the obvious: I am a tech investor and advisor. Here are some of the start-ups I work with.

Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.

This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules is rules.

To cover my arse and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product Kit Elliott and use, the following all hold true:

Please feel free to use the text and images on this page with proper attribution. There is no reason why each blogger should have to reinvent the wheel.
