21 Mar Daniel Thomas Hind: How his burnout from growing two startups forced him to focus on what matters
Episode 74: Daniel Thomas Hind
This week on the show, Daniel Thomas Hind joined me for the second time. He was one of the first guests I interviewed on the show. Last time, we talked primarily about nutrition, health, and fitness. Since then, Daniel has been in this rollercoaster of a journey both in life and as an entrepreneur.
This time, we dived in a deep, open, and intense conversation on his experiences as an entrepreneur and the truths behind it.
Daniel and I discuss:
- Daniel’s insane year running two start-up businesses simultaneously (EvolutionEat and The Vanguard) and partnering with LA Weekly, the second biggest media outlet in Los Angeles.
- How Daniel grew his team dramatically from 2 part-time employees and a handful service providers to nearly 50 employees, providers, partners, and crew members in just 6 months.
- How running two businesses, building an entire 6-month digital course for EvolutionEat, enrolling in two high-end masterminds, traveling throughout the country to attend events, graduating from a year-long intensive ICF-accredited coaching program, eventually led to burnout.
- How he failed and ended up sharing shares back to his partners and how said incident caused him to experience burnout, depression, and embarrassment.
- Major takeaways he learned and what it really means to be a CEO.
- On doing the things that truly matters and how he learned things the hard way.
