The Unusual Success Story Behind Daniel Dayette (#6)

I think every entrepreneur needs to learn sales skills. It’s the most important part of your job in the early days and it’s the one thing you can’t outsource until you’ve grown past a certain threshold.”   Daniel Dayette

Daniel Dayette has an incredibly inspiring story about going from sleeping behind a 7-Eleven to running 3 successful businesses! 

Early in Daniel’s life, he was told he had speech disabilities, learning disabilities and signs of schizophrenia. In many ways, the odds were stacked against him and the opportunities for success would be limited.

Incredibly, Daniel found ways to grind through finding a job, taking on more responsibility and eventually found himself in very successful positions.

Mike and Daniel discuss this journey including the low points, the high points and how to climb over the hurdles that get you from one point to the next.
