Chandler Bolt is the CEO of Self-Publishing School & SelfPublishing.com.

He dropped out of college during his Sophomore year because he had the itch to run his own business. By the time his friends were graduating college, his business, Self-Publishing School, was already making a million dollars in annual revenue.

Despite making a lot of money at a young age, Chandler is NOT an overnight success. Self-Publishing School was probably his 3rd or 4th business. He has put in many reps and tried a bunch of things in entrepreneurship before dropping out of college.

In this episode, we talk about dropping out of college and making your first million dollars.

Larry Janesky came from humble beginnings. No one in his family went to college, and he didn’t have the money to go to college, either. So he started his own carpentry business straight out of high school and expanded that business into a multimillion dollar home improvement empire.

Today, his company Contractor Nation fixes people’s homes—but there’s a lot more to it than that. Larry has created an intricate business model and started a product dealer network to have as much control over the supply chain as possible.

Plus, Larry also has a digital marketing agency, over 32 patented products, 1600+ employees, and runs an entrepreneurship school for anyone who wants to learn how to do what he did.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn about how to start a multimillion dollar business WITHOUT going to college, you’ll love this episode.

Robert D. Friedman is most well-known for being the co-founder of Auction.com, one of the largest real estate auction firms in the United States.

Rob is definitely one of those guys that learned more by doing than by studying in a classroom. He started an auto repair shop at the age of 19 making $100k/year, and then he used that as a springboard to start many other business ventures, mostly in the real estate industry.

He has been working with his business partner, Jeffrey Frieden, for over 40 years. And together, they have participated in thousands of real estate transactions, grossing billions in sales.

Rob is also involved in various charitable organizations. One of his proudest achievements is starting a school in Nicaragua called veraschool.org that educates bright, young girls in underserved communities. Go check that out to see how you can help.

If there’s one thing Garrain Jones knows, it’s how to transform your life for the better.

This guy has an epic story. Tough childhood events put his life into a downward trajectory that led him to selling drugs, stripping, going to prison, and becoming over $200,000 in debt. It seemed like every time he took one step forward, he’d take two steps back.

Finally, he had enough and committed to changing his life. He moved to LA, starred in a Beyoncé music video, signed a $500,000 record deal with Ludacris, built a 7-figure business, wrote a best-selling book, helped his mom achieve her dream of going to fashion school, met and married his wife, and now helps others transform their own lives.

In this episode, he shares how shifting your mindset is the first step to breaking unhealthy cycles in your life.
