BOOM.


As a small business owner Brad has suffered all of the worries, challenges and indignities of launching a business (in massive personal debt and having to deliver pizzas in the early days).

Brad knows what it's like and tells it how it is.

Not as thick as he looks, Brad was told "It'll never work" and has answered his critics in the best possible way - by proving them wrong and spearheading the fastest growing business breakfast network, 4Networking, who run over 5,000 joined up networking events across the UK each year! Oh yea and they now have groups opening in Australia.

Next stop, all around the world.

He's generally regarded as the UK's #1 Motivational Business Speaker and is the author of three books so far, all of which are "self help/biz books for people who don't like self help/biz books", his unique approach to business, life is also found in his writing, his books are written with a raw honesty, the likes of which most authors would be unwilling to share.

Life. Business. Just Got Easier [2013] Is his latest.

A book which he believes will help the reader change their Life, Business, Direction, Thinking... All four? Maybe.


Get Off Your Arse [2009] - is Brad's must-read inspirational story of how he went from his boxroom to the boardroom as MD of 4Networking. With over 200 rave reviews on Amazon, averaging 4.7 out of 5, this was the publishing sensation of the year.

Get Off Your Arse Too [2011] - Brad Burton is back, sharing his unique and raw look at life/business and how everything happens for a reason, even the s**tty stuff... GOYA2, repeated the success of the first book.

When I first met Brad I thought he was a builder but after reading his book he is more like a northern Anthony Robbins! Theo Paphitis - Dragons' Den star --http://www.getoffyourarse.biz

About the Author

As a small business owner himself, who has suffered all of the worries, challenges and indignities of launching a business (in massive personal debt and having to deliver pizzas in the early days), Brad knows what it's like and tells it how it is. Not as thick as he looks, Brad was told: It'll never work. He has answered his critics in the best possible way - by proving them wrong and spearheading the fastest growing business breakfast network in the world, 4Networking, with over 200 groups across the UK and now groups opening around the world. Brad is the author of two books so far, both of which are self help/biz books for people who don't like self help/biz books: Get Off Your Arse - this is Brad's must-read inspirational story of he went from his boxroom to the boardroom as MD of 4Networking. With over 190 rave reviews on Amazon, averaging 4.9 out of 5, this was the publishing sensation of 2009. Get Off Your Arse Too - Brad Burton is back, sharing his unique and raw look at life/business and how everything happens for a reason, even the s**tty stuff... GOYA2, published in 2011, is set to repeat and exceed the success of the first book.

It's a quick, easy read - I managed to finish it in a day and I'm normally a slow-ish reader. It's worth the 99p to get a couple of tips but I felt it was mainly used to promote his networking business. He bulks it up with plenty testimonials which can be interesting, but I'm not sure if he's just helping mates out by giving them a mention. Can't blame him for that, but the actual substance to the book could probably be summarized in a short web article.
The style of writing makes it feel like your getting a pep talk from someone at the pub. So imagine someone after a few beers, they tell you their life story with anecdotes and plenty of metaphors, then they start repeating themselves, and towards the end they're a little emotional which turns it into a long awkward goodbye.
For me, this book didn't do anything and I was frustrated by the amount of self promotion. For other people it's clearly got them excited about something, so for the price and ease of reading you've got nothing to lose!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thinking of taking the jump? 24 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book if you are teetering at the edge of the career cliff considering jumping off into self-employment. Brad is a cocky, ballsy, no-holds-barred, no nonsense motivational speaker. If, like me, you prefer straight punching advice over wafty positive-cosmos self help books then this is for you. I would recommend this book over GOYA. Now off to read his third.....

5.0 out of 5 stars entertaining and do things differently 15 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book will only give you ideas if the ideas are already there and you just want a bit of inspiration

Brad cannot change you but he can bring out what is already in you

If you have a creative brain and get a buzz from other peoples energy and experiences, this is the book for you.

It's not going to put money in your bank account but it will make you question the norm. Like brad says about 4n - it's not about benchmarking competition, it's about re thinking the industry and re branding yourselves a industry leaders

Like Brad himself the title of this book may seem on the face of it to be brash and abrasive, but the considered wisdom within it is anything but. Because of the conversational style you may not realise until the end of the book that you have just been given some of the best business advice you have ever received. When you figure that out, go back and read it again. The messages are clear, the advice is sound, business is all about people.

5.0 out of 5 stars New business bible...? 17 Sep 2011
By Rob
Format:Kindle Edition
Goya 2 is a refreshing book that,well, tells you just how simple it is for you to get off your arse!!! It has a more gritty feel than his first book goya. It encourages all readers to take a look at all the little decisions that life has whilst suggesting that business isnt as complicated as some people have you believe. An easy paced read, i defy anyone to not be impressed with his philosophy!
