About the Author: Simon Dolan

Twitter Dragon Simon Dolan's business empire encompasses aviation, motor racing, publishing, recruitment, and lifestyle products. There is also a branch of his accountancy firm, SJD Accountancy, in every major UK town and city. His fortune was recently placed at £100 million.

Dolan gained his first entrepreneurial experience at the age of 13, buying and selling scratch cards in the school playground.

He took an early morning paper round, before gaining a part time job at his local market on the cheese and egg stall. There, the young entrepreneur learned that running your own business takes hard work and dedication, but that the rewards are there for the taking.

His inquisitive and questioning nature led to clashes with authority figures at school and Simon was asked to leave at the age of 16. There followed a period spent trying to break into the music business, before eventually joining a firm of accountants.

After leaving this role, Dolan spent several years trying out different jobs, until he found himself aged 23, unemployed and living off credit cards.

When the money and credit ran out, he was racking his brains for ways to make money and spent his last £10 placing an advert in the local newspaper offering to complete people's end of year accounts. Three weeks passed before he received a call and SJD Accountancy was born.

Away from the office, Simon Dolan is a former kickboxing title holder and current motor racing champion with his team Aston Martin Jota Sport.

Quotes from the Book

"Luck is preparation multiplied by opportunity"

"..there's a good reason millionaires don't detail their rise from thousands to millions. It's because the story is boring. Businesses grow little by little, year by year...most millionaires grow their fortune bit by bit."
