Flee 9-5, was born out of trip Ben took to New York in 2012 that saw him come face-to-face with Hurricane Sandy. He says, “I was stuck in a natural disaster on the half of Manhattan that was plunged into darkness. It almost wiped out my business back home in Australia. The business was too reliant on me. I had to reinvent it within a matter of days before the hurricane hit and I went off the grid.”

Ben defines Agents of Influence as everyday individuals and entrepreneurs who are sick of making peanuts by sharing their knowledge and expertise with their employers who make millions from it. They are stepping up and turning the most valuable asset known to the world today, knowledge and expertise into profits themselves. They’ve mastered the new ‘automated economy’ and are leveraging their time, the internet and social media to make money on auto-pilot, so they can live and work from anywhere in the world.

Ben says, famous Agents of Influence include the likes of Anthony Robbins, Tim Ferris and Bethenny Frankel.

Ben is Australia’s top personal branding and influence specialist with an international following of 40,000, however just one year ago he was working 12 hour days and helping others make millions. “I was part of the ‘living dead’ working long hours, feeling numb and not being rewarded for it.” He says, getting stuck overseas forced him to rethink his life so he had more freedom and income.

The total transformation took less than six months and included selling digital products worth more than $100,000, paying off $50,000 in debt his business had accrued due to poor management, taking back full control and landing a cameo role on upcoming series of The Real Housewives of Melbourne.

Flee 9-5 reveals how everyday individuals can follow simple step-by-step strategies to extract their knowledge and expertise and create a life they can live on their own terms using what they already know.

This game-changing book will put bosses on notice, redesign lives around their passions and show people how to profit from their knowledge in simple and easy steps.
