  One Response to “ABC Nightlife: The Spare Room Tycoon”

  1. This is James Chan in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Thomas Hine and I invented the phrase “spare room tycoon” as we used it in our book, Spare Room Tycoon, Succeeding Independently, The 70 Lessons of Sane Self-Employment published in 2000 by Nicholas Brealey Publishing of London, UK. It is good to see the phrase used. I’d be glad to take questions from the “spare room tycoons” of the world. By the way, 2016 is my 33rd anniversary of being the owner of an independent practice, namely, “Asia Marketing and Management” that focuses on export marketing.
