More than five years ago I started following Trevor′s ideas, which is remarkable because I live in Boston and he is in Melbourne. Both Trevor and I built thriving international businesses as micro mavens. What we do doesn′t feel like work we have a blast and make a good living too. This book reveals everything you need to know to build your own successful business outside the corporate walls. I only wish Trevor had written microDOMINATION when I was getting going!
