To be an entrepreneur you have to be a little bit of a Rebel. You have to do things differently, you have to take risks other people aren't willing to take and you need to be brave enough to take action.

For years Alan Donegan has battled against the traditional plan that the world has for us:

When Alan went for help from the British Government to start a business. They told him to write a business plan; get a load of debt and did more to put him off starting than they did to help.

Alan spent the next 12 years of his life thinking, studying, learning about business and searching for a better way to start-up without debt.

This search enabled him to create his own successful training business and then to take those skills and launch PopUp Business School which now operates in 5 different countries around the world and helps thousands of people a year to build businesses without debt.
The belief that it takes money to make money traps people around the world from ever taking control of their future and making their own money. This is the belief that he wants to fundamentally destroy with this podcast and empower you to get going debt free!

What is the purpose of this podcast?
"This is an effort to put out into the world the support I wish I had when I was starting my business. I want to do what I felt the British Government was never able to do and that is to help people start-up without debt and make money doing something they love.

If you need help with your business, motivation, inspiration and energy then this podcast is for you. Join The Rebellion"

REBEL BUSINESS SCHOOL

I love this podcast. Fascinated to hear the thought process and big ideas that make things happen. Always a number of insights and a call to get up and get going. Absolutely love it. Helping me form the basis of a couple of business experiments . Keep it up! Cheers

Everyone should be a Rebel entrepreneur

I’m a fan of podcasts and I wondered if I had enough interest and space for another one. I am so glad I switched this on today.
I’ve a strong entrepreneurial spirit but never had an idea I was fully committed to which has been frustrating. I work in the supporting small businesses area and have a lot of people and business management skills from leadership roles. But this podcast was still so refreshing and well pitched. I love the celebration of doing it whatever way works for you, not prescriptive, I love the honesty of admitting sometimes things fail but we move on and keep going.
Highly recommend to anyone with an interest in business and an entrepreneurial itch.
Easy to listen to and even had me laughing at points. Well done.

Thank you Alan

I've listened to quite a few of Alan's podcasts, have attended Rebel & Finance business school, I'm no longer just sat on the sofa! Great advice and enthusiasm, spreads like giggles when trying to be serious 😘
