100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers
Dane Maxwell has been an entrepreneur for over 10 years and has started 16 businesses in his career. He’s the Founder of The Foundation, a program designed to teach entrepreneurs how to build a profitable SaaS business, and currently owns a multi-million dollar SaaS business called SwipeMyIdeas.com, as well as PaperlessPipeline.com, MyAgentBase.com, & FearNoFeeling.com
Dane found building a business around a painful problem to be extremely lucrative. He taught people not to follow your passion, but to follow the pain, and become passionate about the process of problem solving.
Nowadays, he has a love hate relationship with teaching entrepreneurship because while building a business that solves other people’s problems is financially rewarding, it’s not always fulfilling. So he has recently had an awakening and has chosen to retire from business to develop himself as a singer/songwriter.
