Today I am speaking with Daniel Gefen, Father, Entrepreneur, Podcast Host, Business Mentor, Speaker, and Writer.
Daniel grew his first company out of a hotel lobby. He has mastered the art of outsourcing and has since built multiple companies that run on their own. His most recent venture is GetFeatured.Media which gets people featured on targeted podcast shows. Daniel is also the host of the Can I Pick Your Brain? podcast show where he ‘picks the brains’ of successful entrepreneurs. When he’s not spending time with his wife and 4 children he’s playing tennis or coaching other people how to ‘quit’ their business and live the life they want.
