5.0 out of 5 stars Excelllent - Buy it! 12 Oct. 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nearly never bought this but so glad I did.
I mark all the best bits of business books with pencil and nearly every page of this has pencil on it!
Love his no nonsense approach and his GOWI (Get On With It)
Have to agree with previous reviewers - the best business book I've read and why
isn't this compulsory reading for any parent involved in sending their kids off to Uni?
It should be...Well done Simon:-)

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy! 16 Feb. 2011
Finally a book that is relatable and easy to understand! Other books paint a 'fluffy' picture that when starting your own business there are no tough times, and it was great that Simon was so honest on what barriers he hit and how he overcame them in order to make him as successful as he is today. He really makes it clear that the best business tactics aren't necessarily the most fancy (and don't involve the background knowledge of a degree!). Drive, determination and a clear business vision, this book includes all the motivation and tips needed to starting a business. Definitely a must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every teenager must read this book! 25 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most young people are brainwashed into thinking that a degree will open up all the doors they need in their life. It won't. As every graduate unemployment survey will testify - a degree isn't the passport it used to be.

Why, asks Simon? Because 99% of businesses in the UK are small and medium sized enteprises (SMEs) and they don't need people with "graduate skills", they need people with initiative who can improve their businesses.

Simon's advice in this book is truly inspirational! Learn to sell, he says and you will never be out of work. Then once you've learned the ropes in a job - you should set up your own business.

Simon removes all the mystique and alchemy when he explains how to start up your own business. It's straight-forward. It's not like the media portray it on Dragon's Den, or some magic jiggery-pokery, anyone can do it. He explains all the pitfalls, how you can scale up the business from the early days and how to market your services at minimal cost.

If every teenager were to read this book, the UK economy would be in a much better position and we would all be much wealthier.

I first found out about Simon Dolan from his motorsport adventures. So it was obvious he had been successful. I followed him on Twitter @simondolan so when he announced he was writing a book I pre-ordered it.

It's a very clear guide to starting and growing a business. Simon talks about problems he had and how he overcame them. Then talks about how he grew his accountancy firm to become one of the most profitable in the UK.

I always judge books on how useful they are and whether I learn something new from them. I'm already an entrepreneur but always learning and I definitely learnt well from Simon. One of the key lessons is how he grew from a single site to covering the whole of the UK. It's also great to read that a successful guy has worked his socks off to get where he is today.

There's a lot of so called "entrepreneurs" who make money from selling books and seminars on how to make millions. These people are not good mentors or "idols" as they haven't done it in the real world. Simon has, so it's worth reading what he has to say.

Well worth a read and I feel it should be compulsory reading for any 16yr old who isn't sure what to do next. University isn't always the best option!!

I personally love reading true life stories about successful entrepreneurs and this book is probably the best that I have read (out of Duncan Bannatyne, Richard Branson, Felix Dennis).

What Simon manages to achieve is brilliant, A lot of similar books like to get too wrapped up in philisophy in my opinion however Simon manages to keep it simple, informatative, entertaining and REAL.

It is very well structured and easy to read (couldnt put it down and read it in 3 days) and if he had another book out I would probably buy that one too.

He details examples of other entrepreneurs who have done good, what they did and how they did it... it is all very simple in fact as long as you undertake the "easy hard work" as he puts it, which is enjoying what you do despite it being hard work and almost forgetting it is hard work because you enjoy it so much.

He started off with a simple £10 advert in the paper so it gives all us hope!

So GOWI (get on with it) and buy this book, guarentee you wont regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dragon of Twitter 15 Feb. 2011
I have read all the Dragon's books now and have to say this book is a great read drawing on a few interesting back stories and shows a few people that the author Simon looks to for inspiration himself.

This book makes you realise that to get on you have to work hard, don't need that big idea just the big vision.

If you're looking for something that is a great quick read, that you will pick up time and again when you need that extra encouragement / push, then buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy and motivating read... 6 July 2012
By Dubbie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What can I say about this book? Well I had negatives in mind such as the almost disdain this has for Uni grads or the intellectuals who see entrepreneurs as almost delinquent in how they think. Or how he almost brags about his fast cars etc..
But there was no way I couldn't give the book full marks. This guy speaks to you like a brother who talks common sense when starting out in your business. For instance he tells you not to set up a big office with all the latest mod-cons even if you have some money, its a waste. Start by getting customers and starting small even if that means working from a bedroom etc and then grow. But don't stay small for too long unless it's what you want..
This guy deserves everything he has and it shows in his writing..
