About the Author

Brad Gosse is a serial entrepreneur with online marketing experience dating back to 1997. Brad got his start in the lucrative adult entertainment business and learned how to run an online business in this highly competitive space. After achieving many milestones including holding the #1 position for the keyword "porn" he moved into a more mainstream focused business. Today Brad's company sells over 300 "intangibles" as Brad describes them and employs people around the globe.

More 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. He worked in the online adult entertainment industry for over 10 years and was on the cutting edge of many of the technologies that we now take for granted such as streaming video and online chat. He held the number two Google search engine result position for the word "porn" for 18 months straight.

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.

He started his speaking career in 2010 and has since addressed crowds at WordCamp Toronto, conferences in the adult entertainment industry such as XBIZ LA, the adult entertainment industry's leading digital media trade event and The Underground Online Seminar, an internet marketing conference held yearly in Washington D.C.

Brad's home is on 10 acres of land in Ontario, Canada, which he shares with his vegan cookbook author wife Claire and their four dogs and three cats. Brad, a practicing vegan and animal lover, enjoys all the "manly" pursuits: sports cars, video games, weed and the occasional manicure and pedicure.

This was an entertaining book as he did give some colorful descriptions of what an entrepreneur is not.He even gave a good advice on who to keep in your inner circle and getting paid upfront which was also good advice. But,rants on the faster approach to Wealth comes faster from the school of hard knocks and the screw school section was a dull diatribe backed up by some rehash from other blog posts I've read elsewhere. This book reminded me of Larry Winget books I've read in the EXACT same style.

I've always run my business in a manner that makes it fun for me. After all, if you're not having fun, you may as well be working for someone else. Brad Gosse and I seem to share a lot of business philosophies.

Warning: If you're uptight and narrow-minded, you may be turned off by the numerous references to the porn industry and marijuana smoking. If so, you'll miss out on some great business principles. After all, you don't have to get high to be successful, but you should style your business in such a way that you can enjoy it.

One takeaway from this book: "If you suffer from a lack of focus in business, you aren't hungry enough." So true, and I've seen so many fail because they didn't have this. In fact, all of Chapter 20 is well worth the price of entry. The rest of the book just makes this a book you'll want to read and then return to repeatedly.

First off, I like the way the book was written and the style but the content
left a lot to be desired in the way of meaty actionable content for someone
who's been in internet marketing(IM) for awhile.

However, if you become a student of the way he does his marketing, then
you'll learn not only learn something valuable, you'll see a master of marketing
at work, it's just that I hate reading between the lines.

I did put it down about 3/4 of the way through it and felt like I was getting
nowhere with it but maybe I missed the big crescendo at the end?

It's worth previewing if you can and if you like what you see, then it's for you.
Yes, it's worth the dollars but dig deep into the thought process for meat.

If you have read any other books of this type, give this a pass. There is no new information at all here. Just not a lot of detail or how-to's to be truly practical. Has the occasional little nugget but overall it's mostly self aggrandizing babble. Thankfully it's also very short and a quick read.

Don't dismiss the value of this book because the author smokes weed, used to be in the porn biz and likes to curse. 'Chronic Marketer' presents readers with a frank, eye opening look at how Brad Gosse leveraged success in building/developing his former adult porn businesses into success as a highly paid internet marketer, and gives solid advice (based on his failures & successes) on being an entrepreneur in internet marketing today.

Getting to know Brad through his book has been a lot of fun which would normally be fine for most people who are looking for a super easy to read book. However, this isn't how I have used Chronic Marketer to help gain clarity on an incredibly complex business sector rife with some of the scummiest people in the world. Brad has an in your face manner that can be easily mistaken for gloating and he certainly has earned his stripes along the way. From his "Bluntly" honest title to his decision to stay away from digital sales of his work, (for a long period) Brad is intent on living on his terms and seems very comfortable in his own skin. I'd say don't judge a book by it's cover but then again...maybe you should! Either way, a very good read that's stuffed full of helpful info for the newb and veteran alike.

Keep "Rollin" Brad!

Great read for even an experienced marketer. Its quick and lots of little tid bits of info you can harvest from this book. Must read if you are an online marketer. Huge plus if you like to smoke weed, but it doesn't really matter if you like to puff puff give.

The Chronic Marketer, is merely a collection of retro information that anyone could find on the internet for FREE, as well as a hyped up product.
