Jon Acuff

New York Times Bestselling author of Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking

“The two greatest financial levers imaginable are selling knowledge and creating residual income. If you understand those you will bypass the millions of hardworking people who are on what Graham refers to as the forty-year, nine-to-five grind. This book is the blueprint for what surely is the eighth wonder of the world.”

Dan Miller

New York Times Bestselling author of 48 Days to the Work You Love

“Brilliant, and much needed, this book can dramatically enhance your life and help you build a business and build a LIFE that is a lot more fun, a lot less stressful, and a lot more profitable…all while bringing immense value to those you serve. And what could be better than that!"

Bob Burg

Coauthor of The Go-Giver and Go-Giver book series

“Graham has massively over delivered value in this book. How to Get Paid for What You Know is worth at least 10 times what you'll pay for it. But not only is it valuable, it is delivered in an empathetic, life-giving way. If you're exhausted by many of the snake oil salesmen of the ‘online business’ world, you will find Graham's style refreshing. I wholeheartedly endorse this book from Graham Cochrane—the #1 person I trust when it comes to monetizing knowledge.”
