Today’s guest is someone that Dan and Ian have known for over 8 years, in fact they hired David Hehenberger as a TMBA intern back in 2010. Using the skills he honed during that apprenticeship, David left to become an SEO consultant, and ultimately started his own successful productized business called FatCat Apps.
David joins us on this week’s show to talk about three specific life scripts that are uniquely tailored for entrepreneurs.
If you’re seeking your own path, they can help you create the kind of financial independence that this podcast is a champion of.
