Danny Iny was a self-described “goodie two shoes” for the first fourteen years of his life.

Until the age of 15, when he suddenly lost interest in school, missed 152 days of classes and then convinced his parents to let him drop out in the middle of ninth-grade so he could start a business.

They let him.

He started that business and climbed aboard the entrepreneurial roller-coaster which was initially filled with some ups but a whole bunch of downs or as he calls them “plot twists” including losing everything in 2011 after his 3-year old startup imploded…

Leaving him down -- but not out.

In 2011, he started Firepole Marketing with less than nothing:

  • No traffic
  • No subscribers
  • No relationships with any influencers in the industry
  • And over $250,000 of personal debt (left over from that last failed startup)

Which he then turned into into a seven-figure business through:

  • Some ingenious marketing efforts (Such as becoming the "Freddy Krueger of Blogging")
  • A strong commitment to teaching people
  • And whole lot of listening to what his customers actually wanted

In essence, he discovered the magic of how to “Teach and Grow Rich” and has since helped thousands of other people do the same.

In this exclusive interview Danny walks us through his journey up until today... from dropping out of high-school -- to serving in the Israeli military -- to his first business “misfires” and...

How he finally lit the match, made things simple and became one of the world leaders in the online education and marketing space.

Some of the big things you'll learn from Danny in this "on fire" interview are:

  • The four kinds of "educator entrepreneurs" that exist... and how to determine which one you are.
  • How Danny convinced his parents to let him drop out of school at 15.... and why he’s completely fine if his own kids choose the same path (starting with first grade).
  • Why stepping into difficult situations (that you’d rather avoid) will ultimately make you better in every way possible... and how he had to do this recently.
  • What the two contradictory and unsustainable business models (that destroy many entrepreneurs) are... and how to "straddle" them both for success.
  • What the "Teach and Grow Rich Opportunity" is... and the super simple steps you need to take to harness it.

We'll cover all of that (and a lot more) in this exclusive interview with Danny Iny in Episode #11!
