The world is always in need of exceptional leaders, but for someone who has little experience or says “I’m not a natural leader”, what do they do?Today’s guest, former VP of the Magic Kingdom and renowned keynote speaker Dan Cockerell, shows us that leading others begins with leading yourself. In this new episode, Tom sits down with Dan to discuss how Dan flips the “life’s a marathon” analogy on its head, why Dan refuses to micro-manage anybody, and what Dan does every single day to keep his life full of magic.

Attended the School of Hard Knocks. A former restaurant manager in Oklahoma, Tom always wanted to be self-employed and free from the butt-smooching of the corporate world. He wanted success bad enough that he picked up his family, including two small children and moved to beautiful Maui, Hawaii. Starting from zero, Tom embarked on building a local marketing consulting business. And promptly fell on his face! It seems Hawaiians were lovely people, until you tried to sell them something! But he persevered and learned from his mistakes. Today he's arguably one of the most successful in his niche and expecting to grow over 100% this year alone.
