  6. John Hooley says:

    I enjoyed listening to you two rap about life and entrepreneurship. There were some great points. I’m familiar with Dan’s work and it was also interesting to finally hear some details about his first endeavor- sounded like textbook 4 Hour stuff. I wonder what value Dan would put on having that SEO skillset was to getting a win and some early traction?
