You Have Got the Power

"Move over Tim Ferriss, there's a refreshed approach to unshackling yourself from the grueling busy-work of the grind. 
Having taken many steps to minimize the impact of wasted time, I came ready to hear what your approach would be. I found the basis in mental energy to be right on target--the minute anyone puts themselves in a position to want change, the first challenge is always overcoming their own psychological barriers. Affirmations tied to habits tied to've covered critical ground to make positive change.
Once I made it through, I found myself itching to do the actions. I couldn't wait to hit the street!"

Leave the Grind Behind tackles this problem head-on, giving you the tools to massively reduce risk and jump into a life characterized by big money, more control of your time, and working toward your goals and passions. It is about intelligently transitioning from the W2 world to a world you control. 

Leave the Grind Behind quickly became a smash hit, reaching #1 Best Seller status in numerous categories on Amazon, including business, career, and success topics. It also ranked #1 in multiple countries and received a "Book of the Month" award from Amazon.

About the Author

Justin Gesso ImageMy name is Justin Gesso, and just about a decade ago I was in your shoes. I had an MBA and a good run in the corporate world. I was comfortable, but I wanted out of the grind. I wanted more time, more money, and to live life on my terms. With the principles from this book, I've been able to:

  • 2x+ my 6-figure corporate income within 1.5 years of leaving the grind
  • 2x+ my net worth within 2 years of leaving the grind
  • Build an $850,000 real estate portfolio

And much more, all while working fewer hours and being in charge of my time.

And it’s only getting better. I have more flexibility than I’ve ever had. get to work on what excites me. Instead of building a life to suit my job, I have built money-markers that suit my life. And you can do it too!
