Rounding out November 2017, friends joined at the Commonwealth Club of SF to hear Tim Ferriss author of Tools of Titans, 4-Hour Work Week, and 4-Hour Body speak with Mike Maples Jr. about becoming an entrepreneur, life lessons on investing, and excerpts from his latest book “Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World.”
In his 2017 book, Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World, Tim profiles everyone from actor Jesse Williams and Craig Newmark of Craigslist to mogul Arianna Huffington and burlesque star Dita Von Teese and shares their secrets for success, happiness and meaning
This book is filled with many thought provoking questions including;
- “In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?”
- “How has a failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success? Do you have a “favorite failure” of yours?”
- “What is one of the best or most worthwhile investements you’ve ever made?”
In the book, Tim’s guests provide answers to these questions that may shock or surprise you, or perhaps REALY inspire you.
Regardless, Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World, is a priceless reference that will likely give you insights you’ve never considered.
