Unleash Your Entrepreneurial Potential and Achieve Effortless Success

How To Buy Back Your Time To Stop Discounting Your Potential To Be A $10,000,000 Company

Episode 21 w/ Dan Martell

Is the way you run your business ruining your relationships? Do you feel like the quality of life you want — no matter how much money you make—  seems more out of reach, the harder you try? 

Meet our featured guest, Dan Martell. Dan Martell is an entrepreneur, angel investor, thought leader, and highly sought-after coach in the SaaS (Software as a Service) industry. He’s also the author of Buy Back Your Time: Get Unstuck, Reclaim Your Freedom, and Build Your Empire.

In 2012, Dan was named Canada’s top angel investor, having invested in more than 50 start-ups,  including Intercom, Udemy, and Unbounce. In 2016,  he founded the SaaS Academy and grew it to become one of the largest coaching companies in the world. He’s also an Ironman athlete, philanthropist, husband, and father of two incredible boys.

All this to say, Dan knows a thing or two about being highly successful and productive in business without sacrificing your passions, hobbies, free time, and relationships with people in your life. But it wasn’t always this way. 

In this interview, Dan shares how his lack of work and life balance led him to call off his wedding seven weeks before the date. This was the catalyst for him to change his approach to business and life integration so that he’d never have to choose between work and the important people and milestones in his life.

Since then, Dan has worked on sustainable ways to help other entrepreneurs “buy back their time” while still being productive and successful. If you feel you don’t have the freedom to invest your time into the highest callings of life, this is an episode you won’t want to miss
