In this episode, we talk to Dennis about how other people helped make him successful.  It’s a theme that started in college when he became a presidential scholar at SMU.  He didn’t think that he deserved it, but says that his friends vouched for him.  

From there he paired up with people who were good at building websites.  They were so good that they actually rebuilt SMUs website.  From there it just escalated until they were building websites for billion-dollar corporations.  

But his success didn’t end there…

Some topics we covered during our conversation:

  • How Dennis has leveraged other people’s talents to make himself successful.
  • The hack he’s discovered that keeps him from being overworked. 
  • Why having the right people in the room is more important than being the smartest person in the room.
  • The best way to get your time back if your business is taking over your life.
  • How to leverage goodwill into more leads for your business.
  • The reason you should look for the silver lining in every situation, and why even the COIVD situation has its own silver lining.
  • How you can get a video course from Dennis for free.
