Surprising and Unconventional Methods This 3-time College Dropout Used to Become an Inc 500 Entrepreneur

Over 13 years ago, Brian D. Evans was a 3-time college dropout with many limiting beliefs about, believe it or not, being stupid.

Then, he accidentally became an entrepreneur.

Brian realized that the traditional education system didn’t work for him and he discovered a non-traditional method of learning which allowed him to reach his highest potential and achieve massive success.

This week, he sat down with me and shared it all on an episode of the Unleash Yourself podcast:

I have a blast hosting this show because I get to sit down and talk to some of the smartest and most successful entrepreneurs on the planet, ask them absolutely anything I want, and gain massive insights from their mistakes, triumphs, and experiences.

Today, Brian is the founder and CEO of Influencive (and Inc. 500 Entrepreneur)  and he allowed me to ask him absolutely anything I wanted, from how he continuously builds some of the fastest growing businesses online to why he uses his middle initial. He even gave me a behind the scenes look at his morning routine.

Brian shared some personal stories that he’s never shared before so make sure you listen to our entire conversation until the very end:

I absolutely loved this interview because Brian knows what works, what doesn’t, and what all entrepreneur’s should be doing right now if they want to stand out and build a profitable online business.
