The 1% Club Podcast – Out Monday – Episode 4 – Daniel Priestley

Before I tell you a little about our next guest, let me remind you what this show is all about.

We’re chatting to high achievers, hoping to find out the secrets of their success.

We’ve got a side order on this, which is – do they believe their success is down to hard work or fate?

AND, at a time the world was sinking a little, we wanted to try and lift it, you, and us, back up a bit.

That last part is probably the most important element in our next show.

Daniel Priestley is an impressive guy.

Here’s what his biography says:

He started out as an entrepreneur at 21 and built a multi-million dollar event, marketing and management business before the age of 25.

True, but his very first transaction took place at the age of 10. We know because he told us. Then, in his teens, he started a venture that made thousands from literally nothing. In his teens. When he had a bar job on weekends and delivered pizza during the week.

He went to University to study business and entrepreneurship, but dropped out disillusioned, finding he was the most successful business person there.

And now….? (Back to the bio)

He’s a successful entrepreneur, international speaker and best-selling author. Daniel has built and sold businesses in Australia, Singapore and the UK. Daniel is the founder of Dent, which runs a 9-month growth accelerator programme for small enterprises, working with over 500+ entrepreneurs each year to develop their businesses.

Still not a lie. None of it is.

Like, I say, Daniel is an impressive guy, but not just because of all that.

I’ll be honest, I expected to have a chat and hear about all the great things Daniel’s done in business, how he’d sold this, made that, stuck a few extra zeroes on the end of his bank balance….and instead, by the end of our chat, I was completely astonished and in awe, and I know you will be too.

Remember, you can catch all our episodes to date with Neil Fachie, Dame Evelyn Glennie and Grant Stott, and you can watch them in addition too, or if you’d prefer.

As always on the blog, I like to give you a little heads up before everyone else for the part of the next podcast I think will blow you away. In Daniel’s show, it’s probably the answer to the question left for him by Grant in Episode 3.

Here’s Grant’s question

So look out for Daniel’s answer to that, AND when we ask him about his Toolbox For Success. Was it all down to hard graft, or luck….?

Find out on Monday.

I present radio shows for Global on Smooth Radio, run an audio media company - Mellis Media - and I also work for Aberdeen Football Club and write for a number of local media outlets. But that's work. My life and passions revolve around my wife, Lynne, and our kids, Joshua and Gracie. I’m a dog father to Ernie.
