7- Figure Location-Independent Entrepreneurs 


“Validation is not something that really works for small unfunded businesses.” Dan Norris


Imagine spending seven years as a failed entrepreneur.  Imagine, the strains of selling your product and more money goes out of the bank account each month than comes in. Imagine trying to pay rent, maintaining personal relationships and having a family.  Every time you think about going back to get a job,  you feel sick to your stomach. It is a challenging path and one that many entrepreneurs experience on one level or another.

Today’s guest is Dan Norris, the founder of WP Curve and the 7-Day Startup movement.  Dan went through this exact process as a failed entrepreneur. Then one day, he had an idea for a business that his fellow entrepreneurs thought wasn’t a good idea. He decided to launch the business anyway. Within twenty-three days Dan was profitable. Within two years he hit $1,000,000 in revenue and within three years he sold that business to GoDaddy.  


Dan is now the author of four books and has now opened his own brewery in Australia. Join us for the incredible story of Dan Norris as he goes from failed entrepreneur to building a 7-figure location independent business, selling it, and then starting a location dependent business.
