93. Starting Brands and Selling Businesses

Episode Summary

This week Dawn sits down with a return guest, Ben Leonard to talk about starting brands and selling businesses. Ben is the classic millennial entrepreneur. He built a business on a laptop, in a cupboard, in his spare time. The difference? Ben grew an international 7-figure business and successfully exited after 3 years; the business holy grail.

Ben shares some of the highs and lows of starting brands and all the lessons learned in between. He shares the details about his company, Ecom Brokers, and hints at his newest business ventures. Ben tells us about his new book coming out in October and even has a special gift for our listeners.
