Every teenager must read this book!
on 25 August 2012
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.
