A lazy investor’s way: How to hack investing, your time, and use it with intention

I am now officially a self-published author! If you can recall or if you follow this column, I wrote last January 30 of this year that I was in the process of writing my very first book. And now it is finally out there in the world!

To recap, this was a journey which took 10 years, when I decided at that time to publish a book! I am a content creator for that long already, oh how time flies. It was a messy path I took, with not sure what to write until I figured to start with this topic of “Lazy Investing”.

By the way, the title of my book is called: “A Lazy Investor’s Way: How to Hack Investing, Your Time, and Use it with Intention.”

Why be a Lazy Investor?

Because we don’t like friction in our lives. We also can’t predict the direction of the market. No one can. Simplicity, it’s what we all want to achieve in every area of our life.

"A Lazy Investor's Way" is for anyone who wants to use time & money well. And to focus on what matters most in life.

I share perspectives and experiences through 27 bite-sized chapters … helping you to:

Identify and start changing self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want.
Act-on self-awareness, perspective, patience to help you create the life you want. And create it NOW.
Realize your potential and purpose while building your own path to personal and financial success.

Anything else? Oh, this could also be the key to your future and maybe your happiness!

Total Spend:

Believe it or not, it doesn’t take a lot of money to self-publish a book with the power of the internet!
Through Amazon, I spent zero on ISBN for the paperback version of the book.
Zero spend also for ebook publishing and distribution.
For the hard cover, that required another ISBN from another publisher which cost me: US$ 18.99
Cost of ‘Proof’ copy printing plus shipping: Php 2,016.08

And that’s about it for now. I have not yet decided if I should buy my own copies at cost to give away to my friends for free. I have not also spent any distribution expenses such as Amazon or Facebook advertising. But this could still change later though. For now, I ‘ll utilize all the free distribution tools and the like marketing at my disposal.

Special mentions and thanks to the following for helping me out on this.
