After collapsing with exhaustion, and landing at the bottom of an escalator at Kings Cross station; Simon decided that his life needed to change. Now in his early 30s, he'd worked his way up the corporate ladder, but felt burnt out. In that moment, he decided to take a different path, focus on his passion, and start a new life plan.
In this book you will learn how Simon Coulson became a serial Internet business success story, and how you too could do the same. You will learn how he:
As someone who just started to market on the internet, I found it interesting to hear about the businesses Simon Coulson started and the business models he suggested to others.
His personal history was interesting and well told in his British accent.
He mentions websites to do business with him and his students. Not at all unexpected in a free e-book! But it wasn't intrusive and didn't get in the way of enjoying the story.
As an avid audible member who listens to a minimum of three audiobooks per month (plus multiple podcasts and video training), I was excited to see this new book by respected industry expert Simon Coulson.
I always like to learn from those who are walking their talk and this doesn't fail to deliver. If you want to get insider ideas combined with a winners mindset this is well worth the price of a drink.
Have also just bought a physical copy as an Xmas present for a friend who has been talking about leaving his day job for over two years but is yet to act..... hopefully this book will help him move to the next level.

I have listened more than once and now purchased a hard copy. Hope to attend Simon's training school shortly. I met Simon at his presentation, he is genuine and gave so much advice and information on setting up yourself.
I was interested in hearing his story, which was a little interesting but was spoilt by the constant selling of his seminars and courses throughout the book. And the "so called" testimonials sounded like a commercial from Barry Scott.
I really don't know how he has the nerve to charge for a book that just sells to you the whole time.
What a real shame as I believe his story could have been inspirational to many.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
It's sometimes difficult to find a 'real' person that's made a success of their life - there are so many books around that are full of hype - so I'd recommend this one as it's down to earth.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favourite bits were reading about why not to buy a Ferrari or a Porsche - and how Simon's not had his head turned by his success - and preferred a hot dog to a posh dinner!
What about Simon Coulson and Rosko Lewis ’s performance did you like?
Nicely done, and easy on the ear.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Work hard, follow someone else's success pattern (ie Simon's), keep at it and build your own business online.
Any additional comments?
THere's a lot of self help and I got rich books around but this one is the most down to earth. I thorougly enjoyed listening to it. I also have the paperback as I wanted to write notes in the margins.
