I’ve known Dan Lok for over ten years. We both got our start as online entrepreneurs around the same time, and we both did well, but then it felt like he disappeared for a while…

I’d see his name pop up every now and then, but I really didn’t know what he was up to. I didn’t see him at any events, and then two years ago… BOOM…

Dan is everywhere.

He’s giving TED talks, his ads are all over the internet, and he’s suddenly become one of the most prominent figures in the entrepreneur space.

So I had to find out what had changed… Where did this new Dan Lok come from, and how was he doing it.

Well it turns out that the foundation to this new level in his career, was his YouTube Channel.

Three years ago, Dan started uploading videos to his YouTube channel on a consistent basis. Growth was slow at first… it took him about two years to hit 100,000 subscribers on his channel.

But then it started to go exponential, and within 6 months he hit 500,000 subscribers.

Today he’s approaching 800,000 and will likely hit 1,000,000 within the next 3-4 months.

And he’s not the only one that has figured out how valuable YouTube can be… Tai Lopez, Patrick Bet David, Gary Vee, Stefan James, Grant Cardone… There’s about 10 people in the entrepreneur space who’ve gone all-in on YouTube, and their businesses have skyrocketed as a result.

So what’s really involved… How can you build up a massive audience on YouTube, and what kind of commitment does it really take?

Well today Dan’s going to walk us through his entire evolution as an entrepreneur, and how he’s grown his brand to a multiple 8-figure business using YouTube as his foundation in a way that he’s never shared in any other interview before.
