About the Book

How does one achieve balanced success in all aspects of life: career, business or financial results, family, health, spiritual, social, and personal development?

As a developing business leader in the dynamic referral marketing industry, Simon Thompson explains some of the essential characteristics and qualitied necessary for success in your own business.

With businesses in nine countries, including Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Hong Kong, China, Thailand and India, the author draws on 15 years of experience to relate success principles that can help you position yourself for business growth.

In 21 engaging chapters, peppered with humorous anecdotes, he outlines practical ideas for someone evaluating or pursuing referral marketing as a vehicle to achieve his or her dreams and goals. This is not a book on the theoretical aspects of business, but rather a practical guide on the what's and how-to's of getting to the top.

About the Author

Simon's career started in the Australian Navy as a cadet midshipman. He eventually graduated BE from UNSW after a marathon six years. Having met his future wife Diana at university, his Naval career ended. He worked in the electronics industry for nine years, his last position being with an entrepreneur who ran a successful trading company. This in part fired Simon's aspiration to own his own business. Simon and Diana were on holiday in SE Asia, and observed the "Five Asian Tiger" economies starting to boom. They decided to move to Malaysia for one year, and start their own business. But what business? Just before leaving for Kuala Lumpur in 1992 they were introduced to referral marketing – not for the first time, but the ninth! Simon travels and speaks through parts of Asia developing their business. In addition he enjoys being able to balance his time with Diana, their kids, developing his spiritual life and enjoying water-sports. One of his mottos is "Live Healthy to 100".
