On today’s show we have author Matt Paulson, author of the new book,  40 Rules for Internet Business Success: Escape the 9 to 5, Do Work You Love, and Build a Profitable Online Business.

40 Rules for Internet Business Success

Over 40% of the Chris LoCurto Show listeners are entrepreneurs and another 40% plan on being entrepreneurs in the next year so this is a great topic for our folks to hear.

In this show we cover the first 5 of Matt’s rules in more depth and he shares his reason for writing such a timely book.

    Your response to the “10 minute infomercial” review on iTunes. That was too funny, Chris!

    Seriously, I learned a lot from this episode! I especially loved rule 3 (relationships trump knowledge). That’s what I’ve been learning this past year. Yes, it’s important to have knowledge and skills…but SO much of it all boils down to your relationships.

    I hear it (and say it) all the time but people do business with people they know, like, and trust.

    I bought Matt’s book and he mentioned in the podcast that I can send him the receipt and he would give out a link to the audible version. Does anyone know where to send it too? Thank you!
