Dave Valentine: Lead Your Business with Humanity

In this episode of Championship Leadership, we had the privilege to interview Dave Valentine, a CEO, Speaker, Business Coach and Strategist. Dave grew up in a military family that required him to travel around the country and gained experiences that made him adept at handling situations and resilient. At a young age, he already had the entrepreneurial drive that gave rise to his passion for commerce, and he created his first grown business at age 25. From then, he pushed himself to make it work and would often miss spending time with his growing family and become negligent of his health. His life realization came when his doctor told him to slow down due to a heart condition brought by stress. Soon he decided to sell his business and build a new company that does not need much of his time.

Years later, Dave now owns different agencies that offer diverse services and is on the way to changing the world and making it a better place to live.

Important Quotes:

“Championship leader is relentless.”

 “I think that’s one of the things that great leaders do is they give people a safe spot to fail in their development.”

“I found that every time that you come to an obstacle in life or in business it’s not about going around it. It’s about going through it. Everything that you want is on the other side.”

About The Guest:

Changing the grind.

Dave owns 7 businesses that have generated over ONE BILLION dollars collectively for over 1000 clients, including major brands and Fortune 100 companies like Target, Time magazine, and American Express.

At the age of 29, his doctor said, “Are you prepared for your heart attack?” Dave realized he needed to learn how to scale his businesses without being overwhelmed by stress. His life depended on it.

Dave now runs multiple companies from the mountains in a house by a river with three waterfalls.

Merging conscious capitalism with an unconventional marketing approach, Dave has rapidly grown his businesses by investing money in people rather than paid advertising.

After selling his first business, Dave acquired three more companies and has put $3 MILLION into businesses this year. His mission is to employ over 200,000 people and revolutionize the way we reward good talent.

Dave wants to be so big that governments can’t ignore him because his companies take up too much of their GDP. Simply put . . . he wants to buy back the freedom that was stolen by greedy individuals and corporations.
