Featuring small business owners just like you, designing their ambitious, lifestyle business.

Listen (or watch!) now on:


The Ambitious. Lifestyle. Business. Podcast (or ALB Podcast to it’s friends) is a UK small business podcast, hosted by bestselling author John Lamerton and his business partner Jason Brockman.

John and Jason have been running small businesses together in the UK for the last two decades. They’ve been involved in more than sixty small businesses in that time, working at the coal face, and they’ve done pretty well for themselves, so they know what it takes to make a small business in the UK thrive.

Every month, John and Jason interview real small business owners – there’s no “gurus” here doing the circuit, plugging their latest book, seminar or “magic system”. Just real business owners like you, who are creating ambitious, lifestyle businesses.

The ALB Podcast is available wherever you get your podcasts. Don’t forget to subscribe on your favourite platform!

“John and Jason have been there and done it and don’t have an ego about it like many others.

I know I am better organised, better planned and prepared and more likely to succeed sooner, thanks to their wisdom and experience.”

Matt Tricot - 1upsearch

"Two normal blokes from Plymouth" John and Jason have been working together, building businesses for over two decades!

They're the anti-gurus with a strong dislike of psuedo business psycho-babble. Their no-nonsense, straightforward approach with relateable and valuable advice has won them followers from all over the world. They've helped hundreds of business owners improve their businesses and lives.

The King of Can-do and the 'Lazy' Entrepreneur have a mountain of knowledge they're happy to share.

Could you DOUBLE your business 1% at a time?

Could you grow your business by just 1% this week? That doesn’t sound too hard, does it? Well, if you could grow your business by just 1% every week, after 69 weeks, you’d have DOUBLED your business!

These 1% gains are the same techniques used by the British Cycling Team that helped them turn a bunch of “also-rans” into world beaters, notching up forty-two medals in the last four Olympics, as well as winning six of the last seven Tour De France races.

The One Percent Club will show you EXACTLY how to implement these 1% gains into your business, and how they can stack up to REALLY grow your business.

John released his first book “Big Ideas… for Small Businesses” in 2017, and it shot straight to the #1 bestseller list for Small Business and Entrepreneurship on Amazon, outselling books by Richard Branson, Alan Sugar and Duncan Bannatyne combined.

Since then, it’s sold thousands and thousands of copies all over the world, and attracted more than 100 five-star reviews. But more importantly, it’s changed the lives of small business owners all over the world, who now understand that running a lifestyle business isn’t a bad thing.
