Dane Maxwell is a serial entrepreneur and he has taken multiple businesses from mere ideas to seven figure companies within a brief period of 5 years.

He almost didn’t think there was a place for him to belong anywhere, but business saved his life and gave him a sense of purpose and significance. That kind of belonging gave him endless fuel because he had never felt it before.

He specializes in helping underdogs start successful businesses. Dane also has a passion for singing and he is the author of the upcoming book Start From Zero which teaches entrepreneurs a new way to build businesses quickly, without the risk, from scratch.
