Who: Dan Meredith - Founder of Coffee with Dan
What We Talked About: How to be who you REALLY are and still make money. Dan is a hairy, muscle-bound, foul-mouthed bear of a man who has attracted a tribe of RABID fans who love him and buy from him (to the tune of $500,000 in the last six month.) And he didn’t have to compromise his personality one iota to do it. This is authenticity at its best.
Why I Like Dan: Dan never intended to make money. He started his free Facebook Group in an attempt to find accountability buddies. What he ended up finding is a way to make money by just being himself. He has no website, no “product”, no book, and he doesn’t even have a Facebook PAGE. He just has this free Facebook Group where he is able to be totally himself. Pure simplicity.
Great Line: I think in the now.
