More About the Author

Carl Taylor, 24, started out as an introverted shy individual who would do anything he could to not stand out in a crowd.

After investing over $100,000 into learning from great mentors, reading countless books and regularly attending workshops on wealth, business, finance, goal setting and personal development, his life has transformed and he is now an inspiration to many.

Carl got started in business when he became a sole trader at the age of 15, launching ZainyFX a web design and web hosting company that he ran from home, while still juggling being a school student and working part time as the youngest assistant manager of a Pizza shop. Carl's confidence continued to develop while co-writing and singing in the band Shopping For Trolleys, which involved a battle of the bands performance - his first taste at being in front of a crowd.

Since those early years of business and performance, he has gone on to be involved in numerous different businesses in a variety of industries. While running these businesses he has made plenty of mistakes that have at times cost a lot of money but its from these mistakes that some of Carl's best learning experiences have come from.

After a round the world trip in late 2006, where he had a stop in Las Vegas to spend 3 days at Entrepreneurs Masterclass, he then returned to found Entrepreneur Success Club which is an inspirational and educational company for Entrepreneurs who are passionate about learning business and life skills.

In early 2007, Carl purchased another business in a completely different industry to what he was used to with the end goal of selling it for more than he bought it for. 18 months later he sold it again as a much more systemised business and at more than he bought it for.

Carl has coached and continues to personally mentor a select number of business owners and individuals.

Carl lives true to his purpose, to be the best he can possibly be and help others be the very best that they can be. This can be seen through his continually helping nature and from the achievements he continues to make.

Red Means Go!, Carl's first book was written in 5 days while holidaying between Christmas Day and New Years Eve 2009.

Carl has spoken at a number of events including Tomorrow's Youth, NSW Young Entrepreneur Stepping Up Program, Warringah Chamber of Commerce and has served as the chapter president of his local Business Networking Group on Sydney's Northern Beaches, Australia.

Format: Paperback
Self Help books come and go with great regularity, many of them falling on to the 'to be completed' shelf of the library after a few pages because the message is always the same. Enter Carl Taylor, a supersonic passionate enthusiast whose writing style could not fail to capture even the most critical of judges. What he offers in this terse but poignant book is a sense of actually caring about us as the reader: this is one of the most sincere guides to improving life as we live it out there on the choices of books to read while searching for meaning.

Based on the Japanese word 'Kaizen' which is translated as 'continuous improvement' and has been a philosophical torch for thousands of years in Japanese culture, Taylor pushes that concept a little further and instead defines Kaizen as continuous self-improvement. He hastens to remind us that 'continuous self-improvement' is "actually unachievable because you will never get to a point where you say 'I've achieved continuous self-improvement', because at that point, it would no longer be continuous." He stays with this lighthearted conversational approach throughout his book, using the example of our lives as cars! 'Look Under the Hood' delves into an examination of how the brain works, or, how we learn. 'Learning the Controls' studies how we think: 'The one great thing to also realize is that there is only one thing in the world that you have 100% complete unequivocal control over. And that, my friend, is the way you THINK.

A great introduction to the basics of moving forward in life. Very accessible for young people, those new to the personal development arena or anyone wanting to reconnect with core life improvement concepts.

Carl takes a lot of big ideas and breaks them down into easy-to-read and easy-to-understand sections. Kaizen (The author's definition is 'continuous self improvement') is really a philosophy each motivated individual can apply to their lives.

The book gives a framework to understand our own thinking, the impact of thought and others in our lives and then looks forwards to what we want and the potential blocks we may come across and some strategies to overcome these.

Overall, Red Means Go! is a fabulous compact read that can change your life if you take action around the suggested steps. It may be a little simplistic for those further along their personal development journey, but should be a must read for anyone wanting to start living a more effective and purposeful life.

By HappyKMC on June 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
At first, I was really curious about the title of the book and was honestly expecting of a common eBook that I normally read. But when I read the first chapter, everything has changed. I never thought that I will be so excited and eager to move on to the next chapter. As I was reading every word on each chapter, I am reviewing my life, how I make decisions and how I deal with people. I suddenly realized that everything has its pattern and to be able to live life fully, you should make sure that you will have a definite destination and path to be where you want to be.

What amazes me is the fact that the book makes me realize everything. I know these things but I never know that there's a way to look at it in a better view. My work has given me a lot of stress and my point of view is to enjoy things after work. I don't care about sleeping late, not eating on time and things like that. I love the fact that it changes some of my perceptions in just a snap. It's more like an eye opener, some kind of a realization book. I have read some books like this before but I was never affected like this.

Every word has its meaning and is vital. There's no fluff and fillers. Everything can be digested and can affect one's life. As I was reading Chapter two and Three, I am really excited to finish the book to find out more. It was like reading a suspense book that you want to know who the killer is. The facts are presented in a way that can encourage people.

This is not just an ordinary book. It is a Take Action book that everyone should read. From start to end, you will definitely enjoy reading it. Though I want to point out some negative things about it, I can't think of any.
