Hi, my name is Dan Henry and I'd like to share my story with you of going from a broke college dropout that delivered pizza to survive, to a $10 million online business.
I grew up in a small town in rural Florida called Spring Hill. Pretty much no one from this town ever got out, let alone achieve anything great. And it was my goal to be the exception to the rule, but I just never knew how.
I remember when $500 a week was fantastic for me, which isn't bad when you deliver pizza, but one day I landed a sales job offering $50,000 a year face. It was a job I literally responded to on craigslist of all places.
The owner of this company was named Jeff and Jeff was a billionaire. Which I thought was kind of odd for a job you would find on craigslist, but I flew up to New Jersey and met him and sure enough, this guy was the real deal.
If you've ever seen anyone demonstrating a product in a Sam's club, that guy owns the parent company.
Anyway, I'm working as a pitchman, selling pots and pans for about a year. During this time, I start to learn and read books on web design, online marketing and search engine optimization.
Eventually I decided to quit my job and begin selling my services as an agency. Wouldn't you know it? One of my first clients became Jeff. He invested in a print company and needed some online marketing done.
This was also where I found out there was a whole new level of wealthy. Jeff invited me to stay at his home for a few days while we talked business and so he could explain to me what he wanted done with his website.
He was an old school type and guy, and liked to "get to know" everyone he hired.
As I'm staying in this man's home, I'm looking around noticing all these paintings on the wall in a 17 bedroom house, two doors down from Oprah's beach home. I asked him about the paintings and he tells me that he hired a famous artist to come in, stay at his house for a month and paint all these original paintings that I saw on the wall. For this, he paid this artist $1 million! That's when I realized there was a whole new level of wealth I had no idea about it.
While I was there, I asked Jeff every possible question I could about entrepreneurship and learned that what most people think, how they react, how they process information about how to become wealthy is completely different than people who are actually wealthy. It was at that moment that I made it my life's mission to create a profitable business of my own that would get me to a level where I would never have to worry about money again.
After having mediocre success in the world of running an SEO agency, everything changed with Google and it was extremely difficult to rank websites. So that entire business fell apart for me. I took what money I had and opened a local bar back in my hometown.
I remodeled it and opened it, but to my dismay, there was no customers. It was that at that moment I decided to learn how to run paid advertisements on social media.
Over the next few months, I tested, experimented and refined placing ads on social media to get customers for my bar. In the course of just 14 months, I was able to take a bar from virtually being unheard of to the hottest spot in town and was able to flip that bar for a six figure profit.
Unfortunately, I made a terrible decision with my money and made an investment that didn't pan out. I was back to being dead broke. In fact, I was so broke that my wife at the time and I tried to sell water bottles on the side of the road to pay the bill.
But then something incredible happened. My wife says to me, "Didn't you do social media ads for your bar? Why don't you just do that for other businesses and charge for that service?"
I was blown away by such a good idea. On top of that, a friend from college had mentioned that very same week that he started a "paid advertising agency", and was doing very well.
I thought to myself, ok let's do this. So I opened up an agency once again, but instead of selling content marketing and SEO, I sold Facebook ads to local businesses.
What happened next was insane. Over the course of 30 days, I landed six clients and made over $10,000 in revenue. I was back on my feet. I continued this business for several months and grew to over $25,000 a month extremely quickly.
After months of consistently doing well with this business, the natural order of things happened. Everyone started asking me how I did it. Friends, colleagues, friends of friends. And so I began offering coaching services to teach them how to do this business. Almost everyone I worked with was a total beginner, so at first I didn't even charge.
However, to my surprise, everyone made money almost immediately. And that's when I knew I was onto something even bigger. So I decided to create an online course that anyone could consume at any time and learn how to do this business.
Within 5 months, I hit a million dollars in sales with nothing more than my laptop and a single employee. I was blessed to not only receive the "2 Comma Club" Award from Click Funnels, but to break the record for winning it the fastest.
Over the next 3 years, we grew to 10 Million in revenue. In February of 2019, we had our best month ever and did $1 Million in a single month.
The reason we grew so fast was not just because we knew how to do paid advertising, but it was because we had a great product, a product that worked and actually got people results. This is very rare in the "make money online" world, but I knew if we made a great product, it would out do everyone that was okay with mediocrity.
After several years of getting consistent results, selling online digital programs and coaching, I decided to take it one step higher. After selling millions in online courses and coaching (a business most people struggle with), everyone started coming to me asking how to sell online courses, how to sell coaching and how to sell masterminds.
That's where Sold Out Courses was born. I created a program that taught people how to sell their knowledge online. This program was launched and within a few months students got even better results than my first program.
Instead of having students hit $10,000 per month right away, we had students hit $25,000, $50,0000 and $100,000 per month like clockwork.
So we've grown this program and to the most comprehensive Digital Course and coaching program for anyone that wants to sell their knowledge online.
I am proud that we have created program that has created thousands of 6 figure earners that were total beginners.
We also have a program that takes experts and teaches them how to create a 6-7 figure business utilizing their knowledge as a product.
Finally, we now have our Elite Mastermind. This is for people that are already at 6-7 Figures and want to scale to 7 or multi 7 figures. Our meeting are in my office in Downtown St Pete, FL and happen 3X per year, along with a intimate group call with me personally every week.
I can say that I am truly blessed. I can tell you that as someone who's come from humble beginnings, who thought they would never amount to anything but hoped they would....
As someone that always wanted more and never thought to stop reaching for the stars.... This is totally possible.
I know because it happened to me.
If after reading this, you believe my company can help you grow a business, and replicate what my students and I have done....
Consider looking at one of our programs. We strive to have the best products out there and we won't stop until there is no argument that the GetClients.com Team is where you go when you want to grow a super successful online business.
