Ailbaba and 40 opportunities- Day 42

I just finished reading Entrepreneur: Jack Ma, Alibaba and the 40 Thieves of Success written by a guy called Winson Ng whose personal story is quite impressive. An engineer by education and an acid attack victim transformed his life by writing books by the dozen and creating a publication which goes by the name Think Maverick. They have published close to 500 books so far, according to their website.

This is quite impressive for a couple. This got me thinking, if I can write for 42 days straight (even if I don’t feel like), maybe I can write a book and publish it on Amazon for minimal cost? I might have 0 sales, but hey I’d never know unless I try.

Jack Ma is an interesting personality and Entrepreneur: Jack Ma, Alibaba and the 40 Thieves of Success revolves around his life and principles that he considers to be his secrets for success. However, he dares us to try things beyond these rules even if he doesn’t agree with them and prove him wrong. After all, even he is a human being. From what I have read, Jack  is portrayed to be a very humble human who is aware of his roots.

Overall, this book a good mid afternoon light read. It barely has 100 pages, so you can glide past them effortlessly.

Meanwhile, I think even I should start writing a book.
