Michael Parrish Dudell, Author, entrepreneur, consultant

One of my favorite shows on TV has got to be Shark Tank. It’s one of the four or five shows I DVR…That, along with Girls, Downtown Abbey, Modern Family and Real Housewives of BH.

What were we talking about?

Oh. Shark Tank. Well I’m stoked to say that I have on the show Michael Parrish Dudell, the bestselling author of the show’s official book – Shark Tank Jump Start Your Business – that teaches how to successfully launch and grow a business from concept to cash.

Michael is a recognized Millennial expert and business pundit who has been featured in numerous media outlets, including CNBC, Bloomberg TV, CNN, The New York Times, Business Insider, Yahoo, and FORBES, where he is a regular contributor.

As a consultant and advisor, he has worked with an array of global organizations, including American Express, Kraft, Ogilvy, Visa, Disney and many more.

Three takeaways from this interview:

– How to keep overhead low so you can build a more financially sound business.

– The keys to Michael’s 798 credit score. That’s pretty much perfect.

– Not letting your imperfect background to keep you from becoming a successful entrepreneur.
