About The Author
Brad Gosse is a self-taught marketer with 15 years of online marketing experience. After dropping out of high school, he started on his path to success launching his first website, an adult entertainment website, in 1997. In 2007, he made the switch to more "mainstream" marketing and now sells over 300 intangible marketing products which are all run by employees and automated systems, leaving him time to pursue new business ventures and develop new products.

Confessions Of A Half-Baked (But Highly Paid) Internet Marketer
Brad Gosse shares his story about how he found fame and fortune as an Internet marketer.

Mr. Gosse offers the following advice to Internet marketers;
  • Forget your fears and flaws.
  • Gain the confidence to be yourself in every situation.
  • Change the rules.
  • Train people to treat you with respect.
  • Master the art of outsourcing.
  • Get paid for everything.
  • Be a social media MASTER.
The author believes that one of the obstacles that many people face when trying to build a business is a lack of focus. "If you suffer from a lack of focus in business you aren't hungry enough...if you can't focus, it's because you are too comfortable. You need to become uncomfortable FAST".

My Thoughts
I have to say that the picture of a young man smoking pot on the cover of this book is a great hook. Yes, I was very curious to read about a pot-smoking Internet marketer.

This book is an entertaining read and it offers some sound advice for making it in business and life. Mr. Gosse is very honest and straight-forward about his past work in the porn industry and how he still uses techniques and strategies that he learned in the early years of his Internet marketing career. He has learned many lessons from the hard knocks of life and he shares them in this book.

This book is not for everyone. The author occasionally uses profanity to make his points and he admits to being a regular pot smoker. You will not find detailed information about how to set up web sites, write digital products or engage in social media. You will find some wise advice for moving forward with your Internet business and how to deal with many of the problems that you will encounter.

One of the chapters in the book is "Dealing With Assholes." Need I say more?
Great read for all who are open-minded and seeking sound advice and inspiration for running an Internet marketing business.
