Dane Maxwell has been an entrepreneur for over 10 years and has started 16 business in his career.. He’s  the Founder of The Foundation, a program designed to teach entrepreneurs how to build a profitable SaaS business, and currently owns a multi-million dollar SaaS business called SwipeMyIdeas.com, as well as PaperlessPipeline.com, ‍MyAgentBase.com, & ‍FearNoFeeling.com 

 

Dane found building a business around a painful problem to be extremely lucrative. He taught people not to follow your passion, but to follow the pain, and become passionate about the process of problem solving. 

 

Nowadays, he has a love hate relationship with teaching entrepreneurship because while building a business that solves other people’s problems is financially rewarding, it’s not always fulfilling. So he has  recently had an awakening and has chosen to retire from business to develop himself as a singer/songwriter.

Ep.439 ~ From Juggling on the Streets to $16 Million ~ Daniel Rosen

Ep.439 ~ From Juggling on the Streets to $16 Million ~ Daniel Rosen

February 5, 2020

After leaving home at age 13 to make a living juggling on street corners he ended up in a 25+ year career on TV. The longest gig was the announcer of The Price Is Right. Yea, he was the one who said: "Come on down!" 

 

For him life took an unexpected turn when a bank error devastated his credit, leaving him on the verge of bankruptcy. There weren't any solutions out there to help with the process and while fixing his own problem, he thought of a way to help others by bootstrapping the world's first credit repair software.

 

Credit Repair Cloud was born and now powers the credit repair industry and has helped thousands of entrepreneurs to become “Credit Heroes” by changing millions of lives and 25 of them have become millionaires by leveraging the software to start their own credit repair business.

 

Now, with more than $16M in revenues, Credit Repair Cloud is the industry leader and Daniel Rosen is known as one of the most innovative SaaS CEOs out there.
