Unleash your full potential. Take control of your financial future.

At twenty years of age, Samuel Leach was studying at university. He appeared to be a typical student, but there was something different about him. Whilst his classmates were engrossed in their studies, as well as their burgeoning social lives, Samuel was adding another facet to his education. He was teaching himself the science and art of trading. With nothing more than a boxer's heart and drive, Samuel turned £2k into £178k in his first year, and a few short years later, he rose to global renown by building his new enterprise to become a multi-million-pound trading business. From delivering an acclaimed TedTalk to running webinars, events, conferences, and training over 2,000 people from over 90 countries, Samuel's list of achievements continues to grow.

The obvious question is how did he accomplish so much in such a short period of time? Samuel Leach's secret to success is understanding the patterns and algorithms of the financial system. These same principles can be applied to life skills and general business skills alike. The Formula for Success will show you how. This insightful book will show you how analysing patterns, mapping behaviours and seeing the potential in your unique talents can lead to success. Learning practical lessons drawn from Samuel's first-hand experiences, you will discover how to apply his formula to your life. This inspiring, valuable book will help you:
* Apply the principles of algorithms and pattern-recognition to any and all areas of your personal and financial life
* Join the scores of teachers, postal workers, firefighters and many other hard-working members of society who have found prosperity and success with Samuel's help
* Understand the fundamental principles of algorithms without complex maths and confusing theory
* Learn how to identify and strengthen the attributes that are vital for success

The Formula for Success: How to Win at Life Using Your Own Personal Algorithm is the first step toward personal, professional and financial achievement.
