About Dan

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Dan and his team help companies all over the world arrive at business-changing breakthrough ideas by moving past outdated conventional wisdom, social peer pressure, and the selfish behaviors that stop them from being high performers.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

If you want to catch up with Dan, you’ll probably need to lace up some running shoes and hit the road. He’s the crazy dude running against traffic. In the meanwhile, read his blog, send him an email, ask him for help.

Whatever you do, don’t just do nothing.
