Diary of a Fortune Hunter by Lyndon Wood


Diary of a Fortune Hunter by Lyndon Wood

Diary of a Fortune Hunter is as quirky and unconvential as I am, but this approach has not done me any harm and will help you. The book is broken down as a 52-week diary planner, covering topics as diverse as getting the most out of social media, to dealing with time thieves - those people who constantly want to steal your time and divert you from your true purpose. There is advice on everything from dealing with advisors, to employees, to the thorny issue of scaling up your business fast. I have further sub-divided it into Seasons, to reflect the journey of an entrepreneur through the various stages of the process, from starting the business (Spring), building it up (Summer), dealing with any problems (Autumn), and then selling up and realing your fortune (Winter). If my experience can help another Fortune Hunter in any small way, I will be delighted. Lyndon Wood.

About the Author

At 14-years-old, Lyndon Wood walked out of the school gates and never really went back. At 19-years-old, Lyndon found himself living in sin, owning a tiny house and working in a commission-only job selling insurance. But then one day, he had a light-bulb moment. Why couldn't he do it for himself? So he gave up his job and started selling insurance himself. He had no qualifications and no real experience. To cap it all off, the year was 1990, and the UK was at the start of a recession. At first he started off earning just GBP100 a week. Now he had realised his dream. He has founded and owns Moorhouse Group,, Moorlife and L & S Investments, and currently employs more than 140 people with a turn over in excess of GBP35m in insurance premiums. He has a porfolio of property rentals, has accumulated a total net worth of GBP16m plus, has a collection of great cars, plus houses in Wales and Spain. In his new book, he shows how you can become a Fortune Hunter too!
