99: Dan Franks: From WWF To The Podcasting World Via An Audit Or Two
Welcome to the Steve Jobs based Join Up Dots Podcast Interview with Mr Dan Franks.
To subscribe to the podcast, please use the links below:
A huge conference bringing together the movers and shakers of the podcasting world.
The legends behind the mic’s.
The names you see scattered across ITunes.
Commencing on the 16th August in Dallas Texas, the size of this thing must have been a hell of an undertaking.
Especially for someone who it seems to me has built up the bulk of his career in the work of Tax returns and balance sheets.
But as Dan Franks says “I am a lifetime serial entrepreneur, and have always been a self starter that takes the proverbial bull by the horns.”
And this passion for the startup, has helped him develop great relationships with clients which allow them to focus in on the value side of the business and leave..lets face it the boring side of the business with our guest.
That is a partnership made in heaven I would have thought.
So how did Dan Franks get together with Jared Easley his co-partner of the Podcast Movement?
Does he actually find doing tax returns interesting? And even if he says he does I wont believe him!
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up the dots of his life with the one and only, Mr Dan Franks
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How he started the Podcast Movement with a crowd funding scheme to test the waters, and how amazing the response was (and unexpectedly so)!
How as a small boy he was a passionate fan of WWF and thought that this was the path that he would be going into…and in a funny way it was!
How Dan Franks believe that the best way for success is to look for the holes in the market and then simply fill them!
How he would consider himself as fearless and believes that living on the edge is the place to be!
How he managed to get the top guys and gals in the Podcast environment to present at his conference even when there wasn’t a conference truly arranged yet!
