What’s actually important when it comes to the Dennis Yu’s pedigree is not what most people would say is important. Dennis says the best measure of his authority is the thousands of successful students and clients who are “killing it” in online business following the Facebook ads strategy he developed.

From national spelling bee competitor to high school dropout, Dennis decided early on he was going to be a successful entrepreneur. He’s done quite a good job of making friends and influencing people in the process, considering one of the clients whose Facebook strategies his team manages is the Golden State Warriors.

In today’s podcast, Joe and Matt dig into the three step Facebook funnel that delivers “magical” results following a simple, proven process. If you’ve ever felt the overwhelm of figuring out how to drive new traffic through the know, like and trust phases of growing a business, this is the episode for you.  If you want more insight into social ad strategies check out this LinkedIn episode with Trevor Turnbull and this Pinterest chat with Stefan Ciancio.

What do you want to be when you grow up the son of a tax attorney who invests business capital with entrepreneurs? This cast of characters that freely pursued their passions, unchained from an office desk was exactly the group Roland Frasier decided to emulate.  

Interestingly enough, Roland’s entrepreneurial path developed into a highly strategic buying, selling and scaling business. He started in real estate, moved on to accounting school and got his law degree all while building his assets. Turning down the opportunity to continue his law degree with a specialization in securities was one of the most prolific decisions he made in pursuit of his non-desk jockey childhood aspiration.

Need proof? Roland is a co-founder or principal of three of Inc. Magazine's current fastest growing companies and he’s responsible for creating, scaling or selling 24 different 7 to 9 figure businesses with adjusted sales ranging from $3 million to $337 million. 

While this episode will definitely result in a “Round 2” follow-up it’s so packed full, listen in as Joe and Matt learn about the growth idea scorecard system Roland and his partners at Digital Marketer use every day to determine the best business opportunities to pursue.

This three-time New York Times best-selling author didn’t take the traditional route to the top of the stock market. In fact, Phil Town actually started his humble career as a portfolio manager and value-investing master as a Grand Canyon tour guide looking to escape the cold autumn nights inside his teepee in Flagstaff.

Phil definitely became a force to be reconned with, and fast. In five years flat, following four simple rules, he turned $1,000 into a cool $1.5 million.

From intern to author, and on to speaker, Phil spent the last decade teaching others the exact principles he uses so they can build their own wealth.
