Book Mark - 4-Hour Work Week

The 4-Hour Work Week? Really?

Did you know the average American work week is 34.4 hours per week? According to this study, while the average hours worked vary according to gender, age, marital status, race, ethnicity location, type of job, and education level, generally speaking those between the ages of 25 and 54 worked 40.5 hours per week. How would you like to work just four hours a week and reap the same benefits?

In his book, The 4-Hour Work Week, Tim Ferriss offers a guide to optimizing your professional life, setting it on autopilot, getting back more of your own time – and making a bunch of money at the same time.  Our Director of Operations Mike says, “Tim is a human guinea pig that has dedicated much of his life to experimentation and optimizing his personal and professional life. Don’t let the title fool you, it is a great read. You probably will end up working more than 4 hours a week but you will certainly get more of your time back and work on the things that matter after finishing this great read.”

A Journey to Personal Financial Independence
At Morgan Franklin Fellowship (MFF), we support the concept of financial freedom – by teaching participants how to save by paying themselves first, invest for their future and grow their net worth.

Learning how money works and how to talk about money with others are the first steps towards recognizing an individual’s lifelong financial goals. Our online courses and on-demand learning events are designed to help individuals learn the concepts, rules and vocabulary of money, finance and investing.

Becoming an MFF Fellow  
Our Standards of Financial Literacy program is engaging, full of interesting information, and easy to navigate. Adapted from the National Standards for Financial Literacy developed by the Council for Economic Education (CEE), this robust curriculum features six short lessons on such important topics as earning income, understanding the value of saving and using credit.

When completed, this program lays the foundation for becoming an MFF Fellow. Becoming an MFF Fellow is the ticket to access additional MFF programs and opportunities for mentoring, networking, internships and real-world opportunities. These are the opportunities which allow MFF Fellows to continue their journey towards personal financial independence.
