I found that a journey as an entrepreneur is never in a straight line…or a path to success.  Twists and turns…lots of litter or failed attempts as we continue to strive for success.

My guest today is no stranger to those struggles.  In fact, it’s those struggles that have led him to a successful business and as important, to a passion of helping others.

Today at the Café I’m excited to have Dave Daley, Monster Motivator to discuss the lessons learned on his journey as a serial entrepreneur and the road that led him to his passion and motivation for the work he does today.
