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.
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.
“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. The wealth of the wise is their crown, but the folly of fools yields folly.” (Proverbs 14:23-24)
Rule 1: Know Your Why
Rule 2: Excuses are the Fuel of Failure
Rule 3: Relationships Trump Knowledge
Rule 4: Become a Voracious Consumer of Content
Rule 5: Don’t Leave Your Family Behind

Good stuff guys! Definitely checking out the book.
Rule 3 is a great one for me today. I appreciate what you both are doing. Keep it up!
This is the second time I’ve heard Matt on a podcast that I listen to. Great stuff!
Thanks, other matt!
Love this. Very excited to dive into the book. Thanks guys!
Loved it. Great information and right on from my experience so far:)
Thanks again for having me on the show!
I know this doesn’t help Matt’s book sales, but it’s included in the Kindle Unlimited program. I look forward to reading it.
Great info. been looking for eCommerce info. I ordered the book today.
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!
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.
