One of the biggest reasons I love hosting the Unleash Yourself podcast is because I get to chat with some of the best and brightest entrepreneurs on the planet, ask them anything I want, and learn directly from their mistakes, triumphs, and experiences. 

This week I had the honour of speaking with Brian D. Evans; Inc. 500 Entrepreneur and founder and CEO of Influencive.com

I loved this interview because Brian agreed to be an open book and allowed me to ask him absolutely anything I wanted. From why the traditional education system didn't work for him, to why he uses his middle initial, and he even gave me behind the scenes look at his morning routine.
 

"If you can find something you're super passionate about, that you're interested in, there will be other people who are interested in it as well." 


Brian has been building businesses in the online space for over 13 years so he's seen and learned a lot by seeing different industries evolve over time.

Today he knows exactly what works, what doesn't, and what every entrepreneur should be doing right now if they want to stand out from the crowd and build a profitable online business.

He's proven it in the past by turning his marketing and advertising agency BDE Ventures into one of Inc. 500's fastest growing companies in America, and he's proven it again today by founding Influencive and turning it into one of the fastest growing media platforms online (while competing with the Huffington Post, Forbes and Entrepreneur).
 

"It's about creating a group of people that are going to help get your message or post out there because that triggers the algorithm early on. You need a lot of comments and shares early on to click things in place."
 

You're going to love this interview because Brian shares everything he's done to grow from the feeling stupid as a 3-time college dropout to evolving into a guru behind some of the world's most successful online businesses.
