BTTTF_BOOK_resized_front_CoverWe are in a time like no other. Those who play the game by the new rules understand that seven highly disruptive new technologies are changing the rules of work.

Those who understand the rules of money and finance also know that we are sitting on a debt trap that is proving increasingly hard to finance. They are preparing now. So can you.

We are also living in a time when technology is replacing jobs at a fast rate. Your career may be next. If you own a business, you need to prepare too.

So how do we thrive in such unique times?

Those who do not understand the new rules of finance, technology and money will lose out.

This book explains the rules, how you can use them to overcome the problems you will face, and how you can prosper, during and after the massive change ahead.
