Who the hell is JOHN LAMERTON?

John Lamerton, Bestselling AuthorJOHN LAMERTON is a lazy entrepreneur and investor. He balances running an ambitious lifestyle business with raising two young children.

A former “hustler”, he now earns more money “working” 20 to 25 hours a week than he used to pulling all nighters and “grinding” for 100+ hours per week.

He now mentors fellow ambitious lifestyle business owners, teaching them how to design their business around their lifestyle.

Not your “average” business book…

Former civil servant John Lamerton has run more than 60 small businesses, making millions of pounds, and thousands of mistakes along the way. 

Have you read business biographies of the poster boys (Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Alan Sugar, Elon Musk, Steve Jobs etc), only to feel a sense of overwhelm, and a complete disconnect between what they achieved, and where you are right now?

Big Ideas… for Small Businesses could be the antidote you’re looking for – written in a down-to-earth style, by a “normal bloke” who’s done alright for himself, and who’s happy to share how he did it (and many of the mistakes he made along the way).

This is a superb business book. I took it away for my summer holiday and enjoyed every page. Plenty of good stories that’ll resonate with many business owners, some great advice and a few moments of humour too.
