Praise for Paul Higgins:
"I interview many global entrepreneurs who have made a substantial impact on the world, and I often see a common trait - the ability to take action. Paul Higgins gives solopreneurs a low-risk set of proven actions to achieve success - measured by the lifestyle they want to live. Not everyone is going to build a global unicorn, and that is okay." (Nathan Chan, CEO of Foundr magazine)
"I speak five languages and love helping entrepreneurs to build lasting relationships which open doors they can only dream of opening. But the language of small business was very foreign to me when I escaped my corporate lawyer's role. Paul Higgins helps solopreneurs to understand the language of small business so they can leverage their strengths to impact more people in the world." (Jordan Harbinger, critically acclaimed host of the Jordan Harbinger Show)
"I admire people who speak from actual experience instead of just theory. Paul is one of those rare thought leaders who follows this rule. His corporate background, his eventual departure, and the life he has been able to build, for himself and others since, is a testament to his expertise and heart."? (Ari Meisel, founder of Less Doing)
"Paul shares a great story about his transition from being an Employee to becoming an Entrepreneur. Remarkably, he has achieved all this whilst living with a major health condition. Inspiring stuff. There are many valuable lessons contained in this book." (James Schramko, Author of Work Less, Make More, founder of SuperFastBusiness.com)
