Succeed By Surrendering with Dan Waldschmidt

The Why And The Buy

Surrender. It's a word that might evoke thoughts of defeat, or giving up. But today's guest will explain how surrendering yourself is freeing, and can inspire you to push yourself to new levels of performance.  Dan Waldschmidt is someone very familiar with pushing himself. Ultra-marathoner, business strategist and owner of Edgy Conversations joins Jeff and Christie to discuss the philosophy of the book, The Surrender Experiment. Instead of fighting life, you can release control and surrender to whatever life brings your way, which decreases fear and anxiety over the things you can't change.  But Dan reminds us that you have to push yourself to do all that you can, in order to let go and accept the results that follow. Don't miss this fascinating conversation that can change every facet of your life.  PLUS!

Dan Waldschmidt: A Turnaround Specialist Living on the EDGE

The Alpha Human Podcast

Dan Waldschmidt runs EDGY Inc., a SiliconValley-based consulting firm that specializes in business turnarounds, he is also the force behind one of the most read sales blogs in the world, Edgy Conversations, which The Wall Street Journal calls one of the most influential sites on the internet and which The Dow Jones has ranked as the 7th most visited sales blog. Dan is also an ultra-marathon runner who competes in 100 mile plus races and is only the 10th person to ever run the Mount Everest challenge. Dan's book, EDGY Conversations: How Ordinary People Can Achieve Outrageous Success, is an international bestseller and tells the inspirational stories of average people who went on to accomplish the incredible! Dan's story, much like those that can be found in his book, is an inspiration in its own right, it's the extraordinary tale of a kid who paid his way through college with the money he saved since he was 12 years old mowing lawns, who went on to support himself with roles selling everything from air conditioning, to cemetery plots and life insurance before finally landing a position as a sales rep for a law technology company, a startup that was just taking off in what would become an extremely hot space. Once there, Dan would evolve from a journeyman sales professional generating hundreds of thousands in sales, to a highly prolific dealmaker closing millions upon millions in revenue, his rise culminating in his appointment as the company's chief executive, a role that would see him lead the company to a highly lucrative acquisition.Now Dan turns around mid-market companies that are not growing by helping them see the world in which they operate in a different way. In doing so he brings a world of unique sales knowledge, strategy, and tactics to a game that is too often stuck in the repetition of systems and processes that often become stale, and leaders that often become stuck in working process merely for the sake of process as the world changes around them. Dan has always been an iconoclast and a maverick and is always seeking to break things and do it differently, his blog is full of content on those who took a unique, new or different path to success. Dan himself embodies that maverick spirit and stories of his approach to sales are legendary. The way he prospects for new clients alone is so unique and outlandish that it is no surprise he is able to land meetings and reach the leaders, founders and CEOs of companies that most assume are unreachable.-Links:www.alphahuman.orgThe Alpha Human Podcast on YouTube: https://youtu.be/LXooYow_Qh4Dan Waldschmidt - https://danwaldschmidt.com/Edgy Conversations - https://amzn.to/2Ui4yoDEDGY Inc. - https://edgy.bz/125 Miles For Hope Documentary - https://bit.ly/2BjS88QDan Runs Everest Challenge - https://bit.ly/2Xn0PYB

EDGY Insights for a Resilient Life - The RAS Project 060 w/ Dan Waldschmidt & Jill Stelfox

The RAS Project

On this episode of The RAS Project, I sat down with two of the most amazing individuals I've had the pleasure to interview during the 6-year tenure of this podcast. Dan Waldschidt doesn’t just talk about leveling up. He’s obsessed with it. He's set records as an ultra-runner and been the personal strategist for the leading business leaders of our time. He wrote a book, called EDGY Conversations that accidentally became a worldwide bestseller and continues to share his insights from the stage as a keynote speaker and on his blog and podcast. Most days, you'll find Dan heads-down, working on breakthrough strategies for his clients at EDGY Inc, a highly-focused, invite-only, business strategy execution company based out of Silicon Valley. Jill Stelfox knows what it takes to win at the highest levels of business. She’s driven to lead teams that make an impact on the world. Whether it’s creating a new category of wireless technology to protect teachers in schools or driving international expansion for one of the world’s largest consulting companies, she refuses to accept mediocrity. Jill has a knack for looking at a business and being able to match their product with a market and create value, both in terms of revenue growth and shareholder growth. She’s very competitive and loves crafting the process of winning… not just the win itself. Along the way, she’s raised over $50 million for her own start-ups, and returned over $1 billion to investors by selling her companies. Let's just say that there's not enough space in this description to list out the extensive bios and accomplishments of both of these rockstars. The RAS Project is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and iHeartRadio. You can also watch in video on my YouTube channel and Facebook Watch.
