    This Interview Will Transform Your Life | 1 Hour With Ed Mylett

    ▸▸ Supercharge your life with my NEW book: http://www.buybackyourtime.com

    I just got back from an incredible interview with Ed Mylett, and I’m still trying to process our conversation. Ed's story is nothing short of extraordinary - from a place of zero ambition to coaching some of the most successful people in the world, including presidents.
     
    As we sat down in his gorgeous home overlooking the ocean in Laguna Beach, Ed opened up about his journey to success, and I was blown away by the authenticity and vulnerability he brought to the conversation. He shared how, at one point in his life, he was living a dreamless existence, just going through the motions every day without any real purpose or drive.
     
    But he didn't let that define him. Instead, he chose to take control of his life and make intentional choices that led him to where he is today - a highly successful entrepreneur, coach, and mentor with a net worth of $500 million.
     
    Ed's story is a testament to the power of intention and the importance of having a clear vision for your life. He talked about how he had to overcome imposter syndrome and develop unbreakable confidence to pursue his dreams. His insights will leave you feeling empowered and ready to tackle any challenge that comes your way.
     
    I don't want to give too much away, but trust me when I say that this interview will transform your life. If you're feeling stuck or lost, or if you're just looking for some inspiration and motivation to take your life to the next level, you need to watch this.
     
    So, grab a cup of coffee, find a quiet spot, and prepare to be blown away by the million dollar coach himself, Ed Mylett.

    The Driving Force of a Startup's Success with Aydin Mirzaee @ Fellow.app - Escape Velocity Show #50

    The Driving Force of a Startup's Success with Aydin Mirzaee @ Fellow.app - Escape Velocity Show #50

    If you’re trying to build a SaaS, you’re wasting your time.


    You should be building a TEAM.


    A team of talented developers, marketers, customer success agents and salespeople…


    Then that team will build your SaaS.


    It’s a huge paradigm shift, but it’s damn important.


    Elon Musk didn’t hand-build Tesla cars himself, Richard Branson never piloted a Virgin aircraft, and Steve Jobs didn’t assemble the electrical components in the first Apple iPhone.


    No, these entrepreneurs were visionaries and managers.


    Your ability to inspire and MANAGE a team is going to be the driving force of your success.


    So… what are you doing to be a better leader and manager?


    This is SUCH a high point of leverage that I’m proud to introduce my latest guest to the Escape Velocity Podcast, Aydin Mirzaee.


    Aydin is the CEO and co-founder of Fellow.app, a management application for businesses that have raised over $6.5M in capital.


    His software is 100% dedicated to helping managers run more effective teams. He’s an expert at it.


    ...Which is why if you’re ever going to scale your business, you’re going to need to listen to this awesome interview.


    Fellow.app wasn’t Aydin’s first success. His previous company, Fluidware, grew to $10M+ ARR before being successfully acquired by SurveyMonkey for a lucrative exit.


    In this episode, Aydin and I get chatting about:


    - Why “star performers” are always the result of a team


    - The ONLY thing a manager should worry about


    - How to spot a failing manager


    - The Fellow.app freemium pricing model


    - The value of upflowing feedback


    - Why he hires teams... not people


    - How he bootstrapped Fluidware to $10M ARR with zero funding


    Fellow.app is built on concrete management principles that have been proven to work time and time again.


    To build an application like that, Aydin and his team HAVE to know and live these management principles.


    And I hate to say it…


    But so do you.


    The best SaaS idea won’t find success if you don’t have the right team to carry it.


    I’m telling you… this interview is not something to shrug off. It’s LOADED with insights that you should be leveraging to grow and manage a better team throughout 2021.


    Listen to the episode here and drop me a comment with your favourite key insight.


    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Growth Through Publicity (Not Paid Ads) with Adrian Salamunovic @ CanvasPop - Escape Velocity Show #49

    Growth Through Publicity (Not Paid Ads) with Adrian Salamunovic @ CanvasPop - Escape Velocity Show #49

    Paid ads… or publicity?


    Choose.


    For a bootstrapped startup with little-to-no cash in the bank trying to find their first thousand customers, this question should be a no-brainer.


    Publicity.


    PR doesn’t cost. There’s no PPC or ad spend behind good PR.


    Every dollar returned is profit and the only upfront cost is time.


    Yet a good PR campaign can explode in virality and skyrocket your traffic.


    Why? Because instead of paying to get your product featured on valuable marketing channels, publicity means you ARE the valuable marketing channel.


    Publicity means interviews, featured guest posts, public appearances, podcast interviews and more.


    You and your product become the valuable content that others want to consume.


    It means getting attention… for free.


    But you HAVE to have a story that sells your product before you can get that free PR.


    Want to know how to do that?


    Let’s hear from a PR expert, Adrian Salamunovic, entrepreneur and co-author of Free PR.


    Trust me… if you want your SaaS to grow quickly, you don’t want to miss this interview.


    Adrian was the co-founder of CanvasPop and DNA 11, both companies that he grew organically generating millions in revenue through free PR channels.


    But he became a PR expert out of necessity.


    In this kickass interview, we get chatting about:


    - How he did over $1M in revenue in 14 months with zero funding


    - Why any product can be sold through story


    - How marketing channels have multiplied


    - Utilizing multi-channel marketing for startups


    - How to write your brand story


    - Finding your ‘remarkable angle’


    - The keys to good PR


    - Becoming a branded thought-leader in your industry


    The value bombs that Adrian drops in this interview are insane.


    You’re crazy not to listen in.


    Doesn’t matter if your startup is fresh out the gate or if you’re already scaling towards millions...


    Story. Matters.


    Period.


    If you’ve EVER wanted the ultimate SaaS growth hack… this is it: create organic publicity.


    Get your headphones in, and PLEASE don’t miss out on this interview.

    Master Enterprise-Level SaaS Growth with Justin Shimoon @ AffinityClick - Escape Velocity Show #48

    Master Enterprise-Level SaaS Growth with Justin Shimoon @ AffinityClick - Escape Velocity Show #48

    I have an exclusive interview for you...


    No matter how far I looked, I haven’t been able to find ANY other interviews anywhere with my latest Escape Velocity guest, Justin Shimoon.


    He just… doesn’t do them.


    But for me, he generously opened up about the massive success of his company, AffinityClick.


    ...And how he grew them to be one of the biggest players in the enterprise VOIP market.


    Justin is the founder and CEO of AffinityClick and the creator of Hushed, one of the world’s most popular mobile calling apps.


    This is a guy whose software has over 500,000+ monthly active users (MAUs) and makes millions from both B2C and B2B enterprise-level VOIP services.


    He made it possible for anyone to buy new phone numbers and use them alongside your real number.


    To launch AffinityClick, Justin didn’t build new infrastructure.


    Like any great SaaS that scales quickly, his product simply connected the dots between pre-existing technology and services.


    But knowing how to do that? Yeah, that’s the challenge.


    Check out the latest episode below and let’s hear how he grew his VOIP tech empire.


    This is an AWESOME interview. Handling enterprise-level SaaS growth is a whole different ball game, and Justin has mastered it. We’re chatting about:


    - Making a MASSIVE pivot to an entire company


    - The sunk cost fallacy


    - How to create OTT tech that leverages existing tech


    - How AffinityClick almost ran out of money after $900k personal investment


    - Getting to the top of the Apple App Store


    - Creating a Freemium model that converts 65% of users


    - The pains of growth


    - Buying ads to protect your brand


    - Scaling a SaaS with SEO


    Justin is a talented guy.


    He’s been an entrepreneur for over 20 years, which means he’s seen tech revolutions rise and fall countless times.


    Yet he’s still managed to remain successful despite the shifting trends.


    I really believe that’s what makes a great CEO and founder. It’s not your ability to get lucky with one business decision… It’s your ability to play your cards right again and again and again.


    In the end, it’s not luck.


    It’s entrepreneurial wisdom.


    Tune in to the latest episode to hear from Justin Shimoon’s impressive tech knowledge.

Constantly interrupts women

And also mansplains. Super annoying.

Invaluable insights

The insights that Dan brings to bear on the problems we all face is still mind blowing every. Single. Time.

It’s like watching one of these street magicians work. I’ll find myself re-listening to snippets several times over and it’s just as impressive every time. Beyond grateful for the amazing content - thanks for all you do Dan! 🙌
