Dan Rogers never expected to go from rolling burritos to becoming the CEO of his own company, Point to Point Transportation. In defying the odds and always looking to challenge the status quo, he helped to grow a quick-serve restaurant chain, tripled annual sales for an existing book of business, and pivoted his own company to navigate tremendous growth; the 2008 recession; and being listed for seven consecutive years of Inc 5000 listings.
In this episode, Dan talks about why you should copy off the smartest kid in the class. He gets into how he was able to fire 70% of his customers and found more happiness, and he also gets into why you just have to sign up for learning. Check it out!
