MOTM #016: Dr. Danny Matta – Candy, Pornography, and How to Make Your First $100k as a Cash-Based Clinic

Monday, May 28th, 2018

“Beware building your house on someone else's foundation.” Hands down one of my favorite episodes to date. You don't have to hate your job. You don't have to dread going to work. You don't have to spend your days working for someone else and pouring your sweat into their dreams.

Brought Dr. Danny Matta on to provide a tangible starting point for those of you out their considering the cash-based route, but unsure of what the heck to actually do. I know I always say that happiness is there for the making…so here's me giving you a way to make it. Show notes on my website have the link to Danny's Gym PT Blueprint, and the show itself is jam-packed with free advice, business basics…and a scandalous story about porn that you definitely want to hear.

If you've ever wanted more out of life, if you've ever even had an inkling of a thought about the cash-based model, or if you're just wanting some company for the next hour, give this episode a listen. And after that, share it with someone who could use some business help. Oh, and I apologize in advance for my microphone. I have no idea what the hell happened.
