Mike Dillard is a prolific entrepreneur, marketer, and podcaster. Previously known for The Elevation Group and Magnetic Sponsoring, he has done some amazing things throughout his career. Now he runs his training platform and podcast at MikeDillard.com (previously known as Self Made Man).
Over the past 12 years, he has started three companies from scratch, in three different industries, and grew each of them to more than 8-figures in revenue. Mike has also built an email list of more than 1 million subscribers and grown a podcast to more than 5 Million downloads all from the comfort of his home.
He discusses how he has dealt with anxiety, depression and how building monster companies takes a toll on your body and mind. Mike really opens up and goes down the rabbit hole about how he’s had to change his life. We all have our own struggles and with technology constantly being on, it’s something we can all relate to.
You’ll also hear about Mike’s other ventures that have not been as successful and how entrepreneurship has certainly had its ups and downs. Listen in as he comes full circle and discusses what his vision is for the future and how he can best assist not only those just starting out but others in the trenches as well. When you are done, be sure to check out our other episodes with Marx Acosta-Rubio and John Assaraf who have also dropped some golden nuggets on successful business practices while maintaining both physical health and mental clarity.
“I found that all of my most successful business are inspired by my biggest personal problems, and if I have a problem then I’m motivated to solve it, and if I have a problem there’s a very good chance that others have it as well.” – Mike Dillard
