Enterpreneur Lifestyle 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 totally unpretentious, affable 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 just teach and Simon is definitely one of those who has done it. The story is inspiring - his journey from normal 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 very easy 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 not only about his successes but also his failures, including specific cases and numbers and not just ideas. The content is very practical so you can start on your own, overriding message being that success is down to common sense and taking the plunge.

Simon has taught his techniques to thousands around the world and in the book you can find many of the tips and techniques that any of us can benefit from ( being realistic here a book though isn't going to teach everything about the 'how to' of internet business, not the right format - but this goes quite a long way).

Overall, reading Interpreneur  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. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself...'  and that the majority of people get paralysed by fear.

Well, you have nothing to fear just get the book and see if you can apply some of Simon's advice: what have you got to lose? It is just a book....

I am so utterly delighted that my book is now out, available to order both on paperback and on Kindle edition just in time for Business Women's Day - YES!!!!!! :-) 

STOP IT! It's all in your head   is my labour of love and my way to encourage, inspire and empower women to achieve what they want professionally and not be confined by societal, religious, family paradigms of what " women should do/are like" and, most importantly, the restrictions in their head.
If that is being CEO of a Global Company or a stay-at-mum or Director of Paperclip ( whatever grabs your fancy) so be it.

Writing this book was also a personal challenge ( the 30 days thingy) which confirmed to me once and for all that you can really do whatever you set your mind to, if you really want to that is.

Couple of tips for writing a book from me:
  • write about what you are passionate about, you know more than you think.
  • free-write about the parts/chapters in the book you like the most and you are most interested in first - that will give you a great boost at the beginning - you can edit and add the boring bits later - by then most of the book will be almost there
  • keep your own voice - write as you speak so to speak ( people do need to understand you though..)
  • keep an open mind, ideas will flow into you mid-way through the project
  • a deadline and going public is good to beat procrastination ( but if that stresses you out too much don't do it) - the deadline certainly helped me.
You can do it too!!!

The time is getting closer and closer to the release of   STOP IT, It's all in your head   my new book ( 22 September for Business Women's Day - US) .

I have now  received the proof copy of the paperback which looks absolutely fabulous: a couple of things to correct but overall I am super happy with the result.
A lot of marketing to do now between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+ ( which is PS: looking like more work than the actual writing of the book).

The book event/launch/talk is live on Eventbrite and you can buy an Early Bird ticket now:
