It’s easy to forget sometimes that these real entrepreneurial stories, or “scripts” as we sometimes call them, are rare to come by. These journeys don’t always go exactly as we anticipate either, with a lot of left turns and unexpected roadblocks.
In this episode, you’ll hear about many of those struggles, why he left those businesses, and how long it took Dan to replace his income from his previous job.
If you are struggling with your own entrepreneurial journey, we hope this episode can serve as an inspiration for you.
