Publisher's Summary

Are you tired of just paying bills until you die? Are you wasting your life at a job that doesn't make you fulfilled or financially secure? Then Future Proofing You is for you.

In this life-changing book, celebrated author and entrepreneur Jay Samit, who's worked with such visionaries as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Reid Hoffman, and hundreds of successful entrepreneurs, shares the key understandings and step-by-step process for becoming rich and never needing another job again. To prove the power of his Twelve Truths, Samit also details the journey of how he mentored a broke millennial with these principles and empowered him to go from being on welfare to becoming a self-made millionaire in one year.  

Building upon the principles in his internationally acclaimed book Disrupt You!, Samit explains: how to identify an idea and market to start your business; how to build a virtual company with little or no capital; the latest free software tools for managing your business; ways to get a piece of a trillion-dollar opportunity bigger than mobile; how to harness the three primary fears of others to generate more sales; strategies for finding the right mentors to accelerate your success; and techniques to structure any deal for creating recurring revenue and lasting wealth.

Best book I’ve purchased in years

I buy a lot of books on topics of self help, self improvement, finding purpose, etc. I heard Jay’s interview on the impact theory podcast and immediately bought the book. Jay takes business concepts/entrepreneurship and makes it less complicated to a lay person like me. The metaphors and they way he breaks things down make it so easy to understand. This book has the most usable information and actionable steps I’ve found in any book I’ve bought. Invaluable information!

a MUST read for every entrepreneur

Jay shares his vast knowledge and experience in the book with lots of examples and lessons.

They are all covered succinctly and without fluff.

I had to pause and write down notes multiple times because listening to just one chapter gives you incredible insights.

Highly highly recommend it

C- Ore overall

It's a collection of anecdotal content with rehash of known reference stories from bygone eras as motivation for success. The main interest was the fallible premise wherein his protege already had hundreds of hours of self taught skill in questionable hacks for internet marketing.
the 1st half of book embraces using FEAR as a marketing tool trying to make it seem okay to mislead people but being honest later.
also the vast majority of referred stories are usually men and typically are very dated by the time that the initial story took off. This isn't to dissuade entirely but it's nothing really new that didn't actually tell you anything that you likely read from anyone else other than references to current and dated cultural references of movies and similar.

Incredible!

I heard Jay Samit on a podcast talking about Future Proofing You and his intriguing story about mentoring a kid. So compelled by it, I downloaded the book as soon as the podcast finished.
In the beginning, he suggests reading Disrupt You first. I took his advice and finished both within days. Because of their immeasurable value and practical guidance, I highly recommend both books.

Jay Samit has been there done it & has all the T's

Super keen to devour this book following Jay's first. It really is a great follow up and packed with anedotes, stories and the ultimate case study. I will be listening to this again as I did the first 'Disrupt You'.
