Hello and welcome to SimonMills.com. This is the site that brings all the Mills pieces together.
Dr Simon Mills D.B.A is a skilled and successful entrepreneur with over twenty years of business experience. Born in Perth Western Australia in 1967 Mr. Mills studied at the Consevatorium of Music in New South Wales and went on to become a piano tuner – restorer and to host a radio program that became nationally syndicated. Mills founded London Music Group (“LMG”) in 1990 and grew that company to the number one commercial music house in the country winning award after award and culminating in the world’s best jingle award in 2003. In 2006, with several successful startups completed, Simon moved from Australia to New York City. Over the next 5 years Simon grew LMG digitalMedia to attract customers as significant as Hyatt, AIG, BBDO, Starbucks, Pepsi, The Economist and many more. In 2008 Simon formed a business relationship with CBS Television and developed a technology platform that would change the way real estate is marketed in New York. This innovation led to multiple media partnerships which include some of the worlds most significant media entities. Simon’s latest venture, Locate Real Estate, is poised to deploy in partnership with the media leaders of America and change the face of real estate buyer acquisition and online media monetization in the USA and beyond. Simon is also an internationally published author and public speaker. He now lives permanently in Manhattan with his wife Molley and his 3 children. Simon was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) by the City University of Los Angeles in September 2014.

Sunday the 5th of October 2014 I had the great privilege of joining the City University of Los Angeles alumni when I was conferred by Dr Henry Anderson Ed.D., Ph.D. Dr Anderson is the Chancellor of CULA, a lifelong friend of the great Martin Luther King Jr (among many other legends). Dr Andy as I […]
Harlem Shambles is our local butcher shop here in the hood. dry aged, grass fed and absolutely amazing. We obviously like the place because we now have an account and our own button on the cash register that says Mills. Watching these guys at their craft is quite an experience and strikingly theatrical so Dekko […]
We hit the American Australian Association Ball / G’day USA in January for Australia Day at Cipriani on Wall Street. Pictured here sporting magnificent wife Molley and my very best James Gandolfini smile. You know when you have been gone from Australia a long time when you don’t recognize a single Australian headliner. Or maybe they just […]
Last night, I was programming my lights to turn on and off via email when I accidentally created an app to email me every instagram posted in my zip code. Kind of a neighborhood watch hack. When it got to 600 photos in my inbox overnight I turned it off and put a selection of […]
Planet Mills was honored to assist in the launch of the Jon Mayor’s Shogun Rising project by hosting a little soiree. What better way to celebrate a launch of a new creative venture than 40 magnificent people, cases of fabulous wine, a margarita machine (The Margarator) and of course grilling on the terrace at the […]
After 4 years of consistent development work Distributed Real Estate has finally arrived at the start line. Funding has been approved and we are finally preparing for launch, buying other companies, positioning partners and staff and generally ramping up. Its a great feeling to finally be pulling this monster together. Many have doubted it would […]
Yes after 20 years of mariage I have achieved the seemingly impossible. I have monetized my wife. I mean there is the old way to monetize your wife but it never ends well. Recently on a train trip back from Atlantic City I mentioned that Molley should write about parenting because she is always getting […]
For some time it has confused me as to why people still do this. With almost every device you could imagine there comes the technology to tell me when a person calls yet at least half of my messages start with “Hey Simon, Its about 4.12 PM on Tuesday”. Really? You are going to take […]
