A lot of us dream of being the next big thing online.
Neil Patel has lived that dream — more than once. And he’s still not satisfied.
Like many young entrepreneurs, his path to entrepreneurship was a little wild. There was that brief period in high school reselling black boxes (profitably, we might add, though he realized the error of his ways and moved on quickly). Later, a stint cleaning toilets at Knott’s Berry Farm — Neil’s one and only “corporate” experience.
After realizing consulting — specifically, in the age of the .com boom, Internet marketing consulting — was where the real money was, Neil started landing major consulting contracts in college, eventually using some of the cash to start his first software company, Crazy Egg.
Time flies: By the time he was just 21 years old, Neil was named one of the top influencers on the Web by Wall Street Journal AND one of the top entrepreneurs in the nation by Entrepreneur mag.
He parlayed some of that success into KISSmetrics, a booming business analytics company — which he hopes to turn into the $100M startup of his dreams.
A digital marketing genius, Neil’s played a major role helping some very BIG brands grow, like Amazon and AOL. Most notably, he helped grow TechCrunch’s traffic 30 percent in — wait for it — 6 months.
But the real reason we wanted to talk to Neil is simple: he wants to talk to you.
Over the next few years my number 1 goal is to share what I have learned with you so that you can have a better life than me. — Neil Patel
We’re not sure what he means by “better,” but hey, we’ll take it. (Bear in mind this is the same serial entrepreneur who, in his down time, received Congressional Recognition from the U.S. House of Representatives for his work in the nonprofit sector.)
This Thursday, November 8 is your don’t-miss opportunity to talk with one of the smartest, savviest digital marketers on the planet — who also happens to be one of the most successful serial entrepreneurs we know.
