Presented by Rob Slee

Rob Slee, probably the world's leading expert on creating value, has written this new book. Time Really Is Money tells owners of their time how to work smarter. Specifically, it shows such owners how to create value—personal or business—by spending hours on value-added activities. In this book the author proves yet another old maxim: time really is money. The goal of the book is to show owners how to work for $5,000 per hour, thereby creating a great lifestyle and a valuable business.

For this book, time is the medium we use to create value. Money is a commodity, time is not. Time is our greatest asset. Value is also a loaded word. Many confuse it with earnings. Creating personal value means adding to your net worth. Creating business value means adding to its market value (what the open market will pay for your business). Wealth is realized value, meaning a liquidity event takes place along the way. Live this book’s philosophy, and you’ll have all the earnings you need, plus substantially increased value. A premise of this book is that until you work for at least $500 per hour, you have no chance to create value. And the fun really starts at $5,000 per hour. Yet, 80% of the people who own their time earn and create value of less than $100 per hour.
