How To Become A Superhero: Build A Better Business And Help Save The World

We are in the midst of a brutal planetary civil war that threatens our very existence. The world needs superheroes. The world needs you...

There is an ugly truth we are all trying to hide from. The truth that with the creation or consumption of just about every product or service, we are slowly killing ourselves, our fellow human beings, and many of the other species that share this planet with us.

But there is hope. A growing wave of entrepreneurs and business owners are taking responsibility, and working to build better businesses that help address the many challenges we face. These individuals are helping save the world. They are today's Real-Life Superheros.

This book is an invitation to join them, and a guide to show you how.

Create, Automate, Accelerate: A Radical New Blueprint To Building A Business (And Life) That's Exciting, Has Purpose And Gives You The Freedom You Want

'Create, Automate, Accelerate' takes a controversial look at what it takes to build a business. It explores a framework called the 5 P's of Priority. Purpose, Passion, People, Place and Profit. It looks at the need to ask the right questions to get these priorities answered, and the importance of doing so in the right order.

Find clarity, meaning, enjoyment and success in everything you do, starting with your business. As an entrepreneur your business defines very much who you are, so it important to make the right choices.

In the first phase of the book you will find the deeper meaning for your life through your business. It helps you to do so by combining philosophy, simple models and frameworks, as well as real life examples.

The second phase of the book shares methods to automate your business. This is essential if you want your business to provide any type of passive income, be sustainable, reduce risk should anything should happen to you, and increase the potential for an exit strategy, as well as increasing your business's valuation.

The final phase looks at ways to accelerate your business. From simple, easy to implement ways of increasing personal and team productivity, to identifying the areas of biggest leverage and fastest financial growth within your business.

In short it explores and explains the phases of starting, automating and then accelerating your business growth in a very practical manner.

21 Business and Marketing Lessons is inspired by the streets of Pattaya, one of the world’s largest red light districts. People are either fascinated, excited, or repulsed by the thought of prostitution, especially when it comes to extreme places like Pattaya.

Once you get passed any initial judgement or emotional reaction, there is actually a lot to learn. As an international author and speaker on the topic of business, Leon was invited to speak at event held in this notorious red-light area.

Most people are shocked or amazed by this city. As a business man, and a lifetime student of business, Leon however became obsessed by one odd question... 'How does the world's oldest profession compete in the world's most competitive environment?' (Supply way outstrips demand in Pattaya.)

Throughout this book, Leon will take you on a journey that is fascinating, educational, and humorous. Never has learning the principles of business been quite so intriguing.

Pattaya may not at first sight appear like a business university. But ask the right questions, invest the time to listen, and it has a lot to teach anyone willing to learn.

This book not only gives a fresh look at business and marketing in a fun way, but also delivers practical ideas that any business can implement. Each chapter uses stories and examples to give clarity on age old business principles that many business owners ignore.

The girls from Pattaya have learned these strategies and street smarts from the need to survive. As a business, these essentials should be our first priority.

Read this book and benefit from the concise, practical information relevant to every business. Discover how to increase results, without spending a fortune. (Remember, these girls have almost nothing to invest - and you don't need too either.)

Put judgement aside, and explore a hidden world with perhaps the most unique take on the subjects of both prostitution and business.

NB: No actual services were engaged in, nor any immoral or illegal acts where undertaken in researching this book. By reading this book you will be in no way supporting prostitution directly or indirectly. The author suspends any judgement or personal opinion to uncover the lessons to be learned. Take the time to do the same and you will be rewarded...

"This is a fantastic book. Before reading it I had just read Walking the Wild Side, an account of sex tourism in Pattaya Thailand. So I was familiar with the business practices if the bar girls there. But I had not thought about their relevance for the rest of us. This book brilliantly shows how they apply to every business."

Kindle Reader, Amazon Customer Review

"Solid business lessons delivered clearly with cultural insights and good laughs. I learned some valuable insights both about business and Thai culture. Clearly written, easy to understand and very entertaining as well."

Kevin LJ, Amazon Customer Review

"As promised, he does compare the business that prostitutes conduct (in this instance, Thai girls) and those conducting general business. It's a rather apt comparison because independent prostitutes in every part of the world - savvy ones anyway - have an incredible understanding of business and their customers' needs. They need to in order to survive. Likewise, businesses need to understand their customers in order to survive and thrive.This book is not for those who harbor a judgmental attitude toward prostitutes, whether it's disapproval in general or an incorrect notion that such a business is all trafficking. If such a person reads this, they won't learn the BUSINESS lessons that this book teaches. Which would be a waste of the readers' time and money.On the other hand, if you're open to new ways of learning, then this will certainly open your eyes. You're not likely to forget either the lesson or the comparison that makes the lesson so clear."

D Kendra Francesco, Amazon Customer Review

"A Great Read, it's Funny has a great twist on marketing and is very relevant thoroughly enjoyed it, still chuckling. I really enjoyed this book, it is not only funny but delivers great content. Its real entertaining and it's not just the gimmicky prostitute angle the messages and information inside is top notch. Thoroughly Recommended."

"I've read at least 10, if not more, books on Mastermind Groups. This book was similar to many of them. But, there were many ideas and insights that I hadn't seen anywhere else. The author really thought this topic through and presented it well. I recommend this book if you are thinking of starting a mastermind group. I also liked that he didn't limit his presentation to just business mastermind groups. His ideas and advice were equally applicable to other types of groups, such as personal development, health & fitness, creative arts, etc."

Ms. Albatross, Amazon Customer Review

"Great Read on Masterminds! I have read a few books on masterminds as I prepare to start my own. This book would be the first I would read if I were to do over again. It's short enough to read, yet complete enough to get you started. There are some inspiring stories that will encourage you to get your own group started ASAP."

Buddy Rathmell, Amazon Customer Review
