[Ep 117] How Dan Norris Created a Successful Startup in 7 Days

[Ep 117] How Dan Norris Created a Successful Startup in 7 Days

Do you ever feel like…

Your business is a bit of a struggle?

Or worse yet, an outright failure?


We know first hand- it can be very easy to get deterred when starting your own business.

You can quickly wind up more of a wantrepreneur, than an entrepreneur.

And that determination- what if it has actually become delusion?

Because let’s face it: not every idea we have is going to work.

And that sucks.

But we’ve gotta learn to see our ‘failures’ as positive learning curves.

Or, as Dan Norris likes to call them, ‘experiments with results’.

After 8 years of failed business ideas, he knows a thing or two about how (and how not!) to make a business succeed!

Because for the longest time, everything he touched was a failure.

And now?

Now he is multi-business entrepreneur, author, content king, public speaker and general all-round business badass.

And there’s more- this success comes from following his (zero-bullshit!) 7 day plan.

So, what’s his secret?

Dan learned the hard way how to refine his ideas and distill his core offering down to something that really solved a problem.

Aaaaaaand (here’s the biggie) he learned how to differentiate himself and his businesses in a way that really resonated for people.

So he’s here with us today, breakin’ down how you can do the same.
