This is what this book brings you: you support climate protection, quickly receive compact information and checklists from experts (overview and press comments in the book preview) as well as advice that has been tested in practice, which also leads to success step by step thanks to AddOn.
Because even if luxury is something different for everyone: who does not have the dream of carefree living out their own freedom? Unfortunately, the reality looks different: Many people spin day in and day out on the hamster wheel and wish for nothing more than to be able to realize their dreams. The solution to this problem is called passive income. But unfortunately, very few people are really familiar with the topic of investing money, and opinions about proper financial planning are as many as there are experts. So if you want to earn money by investing properly, you would do well not to lose track in the jungle of financial products between stock trading with individual stocks, ETF and index funds, gold, real estate and so on. Therefore, it makes sense to deal with one's own asset planning in more detail, after all, savings and thus retirement provisions, which are important for retirement, are only destroyed by inflation.
We give you the best possible help on the topics of career, finance, management, personnel work and life assistance. For this purpose, we gather in each book the best experts in their field as authors - detailed biographies in the book - , who give a comprehensive overview of the topic and additionally offer you success planner workbooks in printed form.
Our guidebooks are aimed primarily at beginners. Readers who are looking for more in-depth information can get it for free as an add-on with individual content in German and English as desired. This concept is made possible by a particularly efficient, innovative digital process and Deep Learning, AI systems that use neural networks in translation.
Moreover, we give at least 5 percent of our proceeds from book sales to social and sustainable projects. For example, we endow scholarships or support innovative ideas as well as climate protection initiatives and in some cases also receive government funding for this. With our translations from German into English we improve the quality of neural machine learning and thus contribute to international understanding. You can find out more on the website of our Berufebilder Yourweb Institute.
Publisher Simone Janson is also a bestselling author and was one of the 20 most important German bloggers as well as columnist and author of renowned media such as WELT, Wirtschaftswoche or ZEIT - more about her in Wikipedia.

Self-determined life: Lifestyle design // By Sebastian Kühn

At least since the success of the “4-Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferriss, the term lifestyle design has gained a clear meaning and received a lot of attention.

Looking for self-determination

Ever since, more and more people are looking for alternative forms of work and self-realization. Lifestyle designers want to create their own lives instead of following what society has planned for them.

As a lifestyle designer you decide what your life should look like in the future. You break with old assumptions and expectations of your environment to write your own rules from now on. That is exactly what I mean by self-determined life.

Decide on dependencies yourself

In the broader sense, self-determination is the independence of other people, of an environment, a social system, an employer and unwanted obligations that bring you no value. I do not want to say that dependencies always have to be negative. However, I would like to have the freedom to decide these dependencies myself. This includes

when and where I work,

with whom I spend my time,

in which way I assure myself,

as I care for my age,

in which country I live and pay taxes and

what conventions I follow.


The society in which we live is based on conventions. Without these unwritten rules and norms, living together peacefully would be difficult. But these conventions can limit us at the same time in our freedom of action.

The biggest hurdle towards self-determined life is for most of us mental. We ourselves are our biggest problem because we sabotage, question and dramatize where we can. To be critical of something new, we were brought up.


In order to live self-determined, you have to dismiss your skepticism about changes and instead question the status quo. You must not follow the majority, but trust your own feelings.

Maybe it's because of low self-esteem or social pressure - far too often we prefer to meet the expectations of others, rather than make ourselves right. At a young age we were taught that it is rude to say no.

Adults are responsible for their thoughts and actions

Always nod friendly and say thank you was the motto. In adulthood, we are responsible for our actions and consequences. That's why you always have the right to shake your head.

A good educational qualification, a house in the countryside and a career in a decent company are just some of the desirable goals that parents, teachers and acquaintances give us along the way.

Change begins in the head

All these stories that are told to you are conventions. You have the right to question what is being told. Follow the stories you want to follow and say no to everyone else.

The first step to more independence in your life definitely starts in your head. Without throwing deadlocked thinking barriers overboard and letting new ideas in, all further steps make little sense. As you strive for more freedom, you must also be willing to take more responsibility for yourself.

The dependence on others

Real freedom begins when you take responsibility for aspects of your life that were previously external. Because, as Spider-Man says: “With great power comes great responsibility.”

Whenever you let someone else - friends, employers or government - decide for you, you become dependent. This makes it easier to blame others for the consequences of this decision, but it certainly does not lead to greater freedoms.

All the areas of your life where you are not satisfied, you have to control yourself. If you do not, then someone else does it for you and you should not complain about the result.

As an entrepreneur you can decide for yourself

As an entrepreneur, you can make the course of your future career much more flexible. By leaving social security you can decide for yourself if and how you want to protect yourself. As an alternative to studying, you can put together your own curriculum on the Internet and determine the content of your education yourself. The list is endless.

You should think about which systems and institutions you want to make you dependent on and which ones you want to remove from your life in order to consciously control them yourself in the future.

Ready for more responsibility?

The “disadvantage” of a self-determined life is that only you are solely responsible for your decisions and the resulting consequences. You can't blame anyone anymore. Not your parents, not your employer, and not even any government. You alone are responsible for everything that goes well, but also goes badly. The reward is independence.

To the point it has Hal Elrod with the following statement:

"The degree to which you accept responsibility for everything in your life is precisely the degree of personal power you have to change or create anything in your life."

The more responsibility you are willing to take, the more control you have over your life. Are you ready to take on more responsibility?

To put it right

I admit that an uncertain future can be scary. Especially if you are not only responsible for yourself, but also for other people.

Fears arise whenever you move to new terrain. When you do something for the first time. Always then doubts arise and the fear of failure inhibits you in your plans.

To rationalize fears

By rationalizing your fears, you make concrete things out of the phantasy that you can face. This is especially the case when you become self-employed, go to an unknown country for a long time, or end a long relationship. These emerging doubts are partly justified, but partly subjective.

To handle your fears and doubts correctly, you must separate the useful self-doubt from blocking thinking. Personally, when dealing with doubts, it helped greatly to change my definition of failure. If something does not work, then I do not see it as a failure, but as a learning process.

Failure as a learning process

I analyze what went wrong for me, and I'll do better next time. When you are at a point where your self-doubts devour you, do not always ask yourself what would be if it does not work, but instead ask yourself: what if I do not try? What if I could do it? What is the best case?

Do not think about the security you have to give up, but think of the independence you gain. Anticipation instead of fear of loss, that should be your motto in the future! Your open attitude to change will alone cause you to see opportunities instead of risks.

Working freely and independently: work and travel - 7 tips // By Katja Andes

Working 4.0 is on everyone's lips and therefore also the subject of New Work. But what does it really look like if you really want to work in a location-independent way and what concrete steps are necessary? These 7 tips lead to success.

The planning

In the first article of this small series, you have learned more about the benefits of our increasing independence in the workplace. The adaptation of the place of work to the type of work makes us more creative, more focused and brings us new inspiration and perspectives.

If you would like to take advantage of location-independent work, but are still unsure how to implement your “work vacation” in a relaxed manner, I would like to share six essential tips below that would have helped me when I changed my job abroad.

Please organize well!

For: organization is half the rent. After all, it is not only necessary to look for an accommodation, but also to rent it at home (under), insurance must also be clarified, accessibility must be ensured, and a place with good infrastructure must be found.
