Episode Summary

Today I am joined by Dave Ruel, a former competitive physique athletic turned serial entrepreneur, author, international speaker, and leadership mentor. He founded and grew a multi-million dollar string of online companies in the fields of health, fitness, and sports nutrition for nearly a decade. But this is just where his story really began, as he saw the dark side of entrepreneurship gradually rob him of his freedom, leaving him burned out and unfulfilled.

A family guy at heart, this has led him to creating sustainable systems for his life and business to reclaim his freedom without sacrificing the growth of his companies. He shares his learnings and insights in refusing to conform to a broken business culture that promotes workaholism and non-stop hustle with his wonderful book, “Done By Noon”.

Episode Note

Many times, entrepreneurs lose control of their time and energy, making burnout inevitable. This often results in many missed opportunities in the business or focusing on the wrong things, and you just come to this point where you realize you’re on a totally different path from the original vision you intended in the first place. Today I am joined by Dave Ruel, a former competitive physique athlete turned serial entrepreneur, author, international speaker, and leadership mentor, to share his learnings and insights in refusing to conform to a broken business culture that promotes workaholism and non-stop hustle with his book, “Done By Noon”. Let’s welcome the CEO of Effic, Dave Ruel, everybody!
