Everything You Think You Know About Success Is Wrong
Ultimately, success is not about what you do. It’s about how you think. How you approach problems, how you fundamentally see the world determines your outcome.

Creating an Internal Culture of Success
Driving outrageous performance is less about the tools you use and the training you offer than the environment you create to inspire super-human performance.

The hard truth about business performance is that most of our training efforts are a waste of time and have almost no impact at all on long-term growth. Leaders teach new skills but fail to cultivate an environment where employees develop the will to apply what they learn and exceed expectations.

Since birth Dan Waldschmidt has been refusing to accept business as usual.

Sure, he had a lawn mowing business at 12, but he turned his into a money-making machine (though he opted not to tell his mom about his increased profits).

He ran track like plenty of other kids, but he pushed himself to break his high school’s mile record. He got the usual entry-level job right out of college, but then he changed the sales process, earned millions of dollars for the company, and became CEO by the time he was 25.

These days, Dan is a business strategist. A popular speaker. And an ultra-runner.

Dan and his team help companies all over the world arrive at business-changing breakthrough ideas by moving past outdated conventional wisdom, social peer pressure, and the selfish behaviors that stop them from being high performers.

The Wall Street Journal calls his blog, Edgy Conversations, one of the Top 7 sales blogs anywhere on the internet. He’s been profiled in Business Week, INC Magazine, Business Insider, and on dozens of radio programs. Hundreds of his articles on unconventional business strategy have been published.
