Podcast 534: Daniel Gefen: How the Greatest Opportunities Come From Desperation
Today’s guest joining us on the Join Up Dots Steve Jobs inspired podcast contacted me and said “Hey I Think I Should Be A Guest On The Show”
And so of course I said, “Ok, then, do you have some interesting back-story that will make the show amazing!”
Two seconds later he hit me with:
1. Started out on 6 figure salary at age 23
2. Went broke and got evicted onto the streets with wife and first child
3. Started business from scratch.
4. Went broke again
5. Outsourced my business to a competitor
6. Ran my company out of a hotel lobby for a year
7. Grew it and semi retired on passive earnings at age 31
8. Started a podcast, digital agency and investment fund
Which is quite a good list I’m sure you agree, oh and then he also told me ” ok, lets talk about how I almost died, I haven’t mentioned that one”
So with this lot to cover this could be episode one of a ten part serial, but we will see what we cover in the show.
But its clear to see that this guy has hustle muscle by the bucket load, has the ability to overcome setbacks and keep going for the big picture, and of course loves what he is doing?
So, the question is would he have got to where he is today without succumbing to the huge ups and downs that life has thrown at him?
And knowing what he knows now would he have done things differently or still followed the course to where he is today?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Daniel Gefen.
During the show we discussed such weighty subjects with Daniel Gefen such as:
How he looks over his life and sometimes thinks it’s a complete dream, and it actually happened to somebody else.
Why he feels that all the wealth and success that is around in life is not worth anything if he ever was to lose the freedom
How he knows that its time to do something different, and the methods that he takes to get the different results that he wanted.
How he remembers sitting on his bed, crying about the condition of his business, until he achieved a life changing epiphany
Why it is so important to find yourself a mentor or a business coach to provide you with the inside knowledge to success.
