His business successes have been featured in Time, Newsweek, BusinessWeek, USA Today, and many more publications, as well as on the Today show and Good Morning America.

As a college freshman, he started CertificateSwap.com, an online marketplace for gift cards, which was a runaway success and for which he was offered $10 million in venture capital. He lives in Blacksburg, Virginia.

For those who are familiar reading self help books, will find the lessons quaint, and more like reminders of what we already know, but in a simplified version with stories to exemplify them.
The book however did serve its purpose, and that was to inspire us again. This would be highly recommended for those young kids, in their teens. they would most benefit from. But for others similar to Johnsons age group will find themselves asking "why didn't i do what he did and make money, so i'd be better off".
It's time to get busy!
While an advertising executive for a major firm, I've always had something going on the side. Spent many years in multi-level marketing (learned a ton, but never made much), have run an online bookstore, and have a vending company today. While I've done so-so in my ventures, Cameron has been able to think "outside the box" and turn several of his ideas into ventures that would take care of most families for years and years to come! What's helped him take things to the next level while so many (like myself) have done not so. Part of it is his age and his ability to take risks without having to worry about a family to feed. Another is his ability to see opportunity where others can't. Finally, his willingness to find people who's abilities complement his own.
Though 41, I can't wait to look back of this next year and see how far I've come because of Cameron's mentoring words in this book! A MUST READ for all entrepreneur's, those who hope to be, or those who's kids have the desire to start their own businesses. Who's the next Cameron going to be?!!
I particularly like his story about Japan as well as most of his experiences.
Good book for a fresh thinking kind of guy. Reminds me a lot of the guy (Tim Ferris) who wrote the 4 hour work week. He just THINKS and sees the world DIFFERENT from the rest of us. Good to learn from, even if you don't think it's pertaining to you. It does when you think about it some.
Worth the read, even more so at the Kindle version price.
