I'm so excited to welcome Dan Martell to the show, an entrepreneur, angel investor, thought leader, and highly sought after coach in the SaaS or software as a service industry. Dan impressively founded, scaled and successfully exited three technology companies within a 10 year period. In 2012, he was named Canada's top angel investor, having invested in more than 50 startups. In 2016 he founded the SaaS Academy and grew it to become one of the largest coaching companies in the entire world. 

Today, we discuss his first book, Buy Back Your Time, where he teaches entrepreneurs at every level the secrets to work less and play more while building an empire. Dan shares his inspiring story from a juvenile jail cell, struggling with alcoholism, to building sustainable habits that support a healthy lifestyle and thriving relationships. 

This one is jam-packed with value – you’re going to learn practical systems and creative ideas for offloading things you don’t love from your plate and finding ways to create the life you desire in this episode.
