Description

Dan Martell is a Canadian entrepreneur, investor, best-selling author of "Buy Back Your Time," and coach to over 1000+ SaaS founders.


In this episode, Dan shares how a chaotic childhood and bad decisions landed him in prison as a teenager; how a conversation with a guard and a single book changed the course of his life; and how he applies business principles to improve his health and well-being while deepening his relationships with his wife and sons.

He also speaks about:


- Being diagnosed with ADHD at a young age, getting involved with drugs and crime, and ending up in prison twice before the age of 17

- How a respected guard questioned why he was in prison and expressed that he doesn't belong there, which motivated him to make positive changes in his life

- His journey as a self-taught programmer and becoming a millionaire at 30

- Why he hired a business coach for $1500/month before he even had an idea for a company

- How to avoid building a business you come to hate

- Applying business planning and tracking methods to improving your relationship with your family

- How to get your kids to listen to you by becoming someone they want to emulate

- The importance of choosing words carefully when describing children

- The value of auditing your time and energy

- The ‘Buyback Loop’ for hiring people to buy back your time, rather than hiring them solely to grow your business

- Buying a jet (!) as the ultimate "buy back your time" move
