"I am so pleased that you guys are my mentors... it's made such a difference already, I wake up everyday wanting to take the bull by horns now as opposed to feeling out of control and frozen with fear :)) from the bottom of my heart A BIG THANK YOU for sharing your knowledge and your thoughts."
"Choosing to be mentored by Brian & Siimon was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The experience I have gained from working with them has been priceless. Both my business and myself have grown in ways I could never imagined. Thanks so much guys. I look forward to working with you into the future."

"You guys have kept me so busy implementing the pointers from just a few of the Lessons that, at this stage I haven’t kept up with them. The value of this course to me has been enormous. I have been able to change my focus from moving on to assessing and using all the experience I have gained in my current business in a plan to completely reshape it to how I would like it to be. Endemic industry problems I have struggled with for the past 2 yrs are steadily, (if slowly because I am still time poor,) being solved. Eventually this will be visible to aware clientelle and I will run the business how I think it should be run.
This is a huge change and I thank The Fortune Institute for making it possible."
"Here I am 7 weeks down the line, I’m almost embarrassed now to think I wrote "so much new knowledge"...I’m addicted every single day soaking it all up, perfecting everything I can, speaking out with confidence and performing with confidence...what was difficult 7 weeks ago..is now absolute fun...the day flies and I’m taking more and more knowledge in.. a very humble thank you."
"I have been to many seminars, webinars, live and online courses, but if I apply my best judgement, there is nothing like The Fortune Institute. I love learning. The trouble is; the more I learn the more I realize how little I know. Maybe I have to invent how to live 500 years... in order to get there. Or maybe I have to listen to you and test my ideas faster... Yet again I am happy... I do live my dream by enjoying the journey.
Thank you Brian, for your help..."
"I just saw Lesson 4. It was sensational! So useful. I was in "overload" by the 4th point. Thank you so much Fortune Institute."
"It wasn’t too long ago I realized that I can actually achieve a lot more with my efforts; but only if I knew what to do half of the times I spent on those business ideas that came and went. I have heard and seen a lot of so called business experts fear-selling their programs and preaching on how they can make you millionaires over night. However, most are mediocre at best when it comes to producing results. All I wanted was something I can apply to my business NOW and not some strategy that had worked for their business 10 or 20 years ago. The Fortune Institute has taught me a lot in the past month compared to what I have learnt in the past year. If I go into details, I feel like this thank you note will turn into an essay. I just want to say that I cannot wait to receive the next tutorial in my inbox."
"It’s invaluable really because I just gained so much it’s enabled me to look at things in a totally different way."
"The accountability from Siimon and his level of expertise was just absolutely paramount to the success of our business relationship.
Siimon has just been fantastic, he really gets us to think outside the square...Siimon comes up with another 10/15 ideas of what we really can do and his knowledge and wisdom has guided us incredibly to a whole new level.
I believe with Siimon’s teaching that I am probably a year and a half ahead already and I know that’s going to compound and the momentum is going to build because we have changed the way we are approaching our business strategy."
"Firstly... I want to thank you for the advice you given me on finding your passion and being resilient!!!Truthfully, you have already begun to change my life by me taking action immediately on all your advice and truly, I am way more fired up and happier by acting on your advice!Again... thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!..."
"It really is a no brainer for anyone in business to be apart of the institute. 1. To be getting a lesson from you each week, its like having you as a personal coach and 2. To have the ability to ask you questions each week. In my book that is worth crazy money. Unfortunately I do not have the funds to pay you as a personal mentor, this is as close as it gets, for now. I love what you teach, I love how you teach. And think you have a great vibe. So the thanks really is to you. I will continue to promote as I believe all serious entrepreneurs should be apart of it."
"At the end of the day there are a lot of business mentors out there but I can tell you Siimon is really special he has something I have never seen in any other mentor."
"Since beginning my lessons with The Fortune Institute I find I have a renewed excitement about building a successful business. I find my mind is once again working a mile a minute, feels stimulated and is more creative. Just this week (only my second week remember!) I have generated enough $$$ In ONE DAY to cover my costs for the entire three year course!! This was directly related to an – aha! moment I had whilst talking personally with Simon during my 1st Q&A session.
So essentially this course has paid for itself in just one day!
Simons presentations are concise, relaxed fun and in-depth. He is completely approachable, honest and I’ve got to say one thing I love about you Simon is you are also very Australian! Thank you for taking this approach with your business to help me and everyone else like me who has the entrepreneurial spirit but just keeps hitting a brick wall. I look forward to learning all I can from you in the next 3 years. I plan on turning myself into a sponge!"

"Much as I loved the intellectual challenge of academic study, I was actually half way through my MBA when I decided that I wanted to stop theorising about other people’s businesses and instead, establish my own. On starting my own business I became painfully aware that business school may have given me the skills to manage someone else’s organisation but it actually gave me very few tools in which to create my own.
When I started the program at the Fortune Institute I was seriously considering going back to being that “manager” in someone else’s firm. The retreats, Q&A sessions, and the work with Andrew has provided me practical tools that I have been able to immediately apply in my own business and I have since abandoned the idea of “getting a job” again.
I just wanted to share with you that I have found the Fortune Institute coursework to be much more valuable than any MBA case study and let you know how grateful I am for all your help."

"Last night we won the Telstra MYOB small business award in Canberra. Holy Dooley!! An awesome accomplishment against some amazing competition.
Very much the ‘logies’ type evening (there’ll be TV and newspaper coverage). And of course a speech and yes there were tears (I definitely have to do a public speaking course! J) We’re up for the National award in Sydney at the end of August – and I actually think we might just nail that too!
So firstly a big thanks – I’ve learnt so much from you and having the opportunity to spend concerted time on our business over the past year has certainly contributed to this achievement. Thankyou and YIPPEEE."

How do I every truly and properly thank you.
Twice I have reached out to you at Siimon's events with 'my challenge' and twice you have given me an instant and organically drawn answer - that's proven to be the answer I needed in that moment and in my life.
Thank you so much. I'll be forever grateful and I'm sure you though nothing of it both times.
You're one very special man and I feel blessed to have met you. I adore you and I adore Siimon too, please keep doing what you're doing - it''s really making a difference in people's lives.
Love and gratitude, Jennie Armato
