Online Entrepreneur Blueprint: Book Review


I first came across Simon Coulson when I attended a couple of his sessions at the Business Show at the Excel in May. If you missed out, don’t worry, The Business Show will be at the Olympia London in November.

Simon was/is unpretentious, pleasant and offered great practical advice. I was intrigued, so I signed to a full day free workshop and grabbed his book Intrepreneur.

I like to learn from people who have done it rather than people who talk about it and teach, and Simon is one of those who has done it. The story is inspiring. His journey from average bloke working in customer service at BT to internet millionaire appearing on the same stage as Tony Robbins and holidaying at Necker Island with Richard Branson.



The book is straightforward to read and shows that you can make money on the internet with some research, effort and knowledge. Simon is very transparent here and talks about his successes and his failures, including specific cases and numbers, and not just ideas. The content is very practical to start on your own, the overriding message being that success is down to common sense and taking the plunge.

Simon has taught his techniques to thousands around the world. In the book, you can find many of the tips and techniques that any of us can benefit from. I’m being realistic here: a book isn’t going to teach everything about the ‘how-to’ of internet business. It’s not the correct format – but this goes quite a long way.

Overall, reading Intrepreneur reminded me of what Tim Ferris says in The 4-Hour Work Week: “If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is too. So do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself…’ . And the majority of people get paralysed by fear.

You have nothing to fear. Just get the book and see if you can apply some of Simon’s advice. Do you want to be an Intrepreneur? What have you got to lose? It is just a book…
