This week, you’ll get to listen to the first episode of a two-part series of sessions I did with my good friend and mentor, Daniel Marcos. Daniel is the co-founder and CEO of the Growth Institute and the epitome of someone who knows how to grow and scale businesses. Today, he’ll be giving us a glimpse into his own life and entrepreneurial journey.
If you’re an entrepreneur like I am, you will understand the twists, turns, and hurdles of owning, running, and growing businesses. Listen in as Daniel shares a ton of wisdom from his own experiences in business and offers insight that will help you move the needle forward. You’ll learn what early mistakes Daniel made, the difference between employees and entrepreneurs, and what to keep in mind before scaling your business.
- 1:57 – Daniel’s background and experience.
- 11:20 – Why he decided to become an entrepreneur.
- 14:54 – How he built a company that sold to a large bank at just 24 years old.
