Mike Dillard started 3 companies from scratch that he took to 8-figures in revenue in a little over a decade...and it almost killed him. Mike doesn't know how to approach business any other way than "all-in" and the stress byproduct of that changed his ability to sleep and changed his life forever.
Mike opens up about his story of triumph and trauma in an interview that is as honest as it is full of strategies for networking, prospecting and starting your own business. That's what Mike is an expert in. He knows what it takes to get noticed and build a company into a revenue generator.
Get ready for a wide-ranging discussion on the allure and drawbacks of network marketing, finding opportunity within your marketplace, the secrets to copywriting and the too-often neglected importance of taking care of yourself.
This episode is brought to you by, The Why and The Buy, hosted by Jeff Bajorek and Christie Walters. They interview entrepreneurs and sales experts to find out the why behind their success. Listen on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
