A Quantum Leap Advantage in Business & Life

Dan Peña is one of the most talked about guests we’ve had on the show, – he’s controversial and holds no punches in telling people to “just fucking do it* in business and life. Dwelling in the 550-year-old Guthrie Castle in Scotland, Dan was originally known for turning $820 into $450 million in the oil business in the 1980s with Great Western Resources. Since then he has taken a break from the business world to focus on mentoring elite executives through his Quantum Leap Advantage Seminar and boasts a net worth creation of $50 billion.

But one thing that cannot be denied is his charisma: a tantalizing combination of Sigmund Freud, General George S. Patton, and the former Chairman of General Electric Jack Welsh.

Dan gets straight to the point with his hard-hitting talk. No minced words and no cry babies allowed. And if you think what you see is opinionated, try having a chat with him off-camera! He definitely gave me a piece of his mind.

Just F*cking Do It

For anyone looking to improve their lives, Dan gives some hard-hitting advice. He’s of the “just f*cking do it” school and believes that most of us are living with our emergency brakes on. He wants us to release this brake and just go for our dreams. From affirmations to living like you are already successful, Dan’s advice is extremely useful but may be hard to hear at times.

I guarantee you will either love or hate Dan Peña, but regardless of what you think Dan has accomplished insane things in his life, and there is some life-changing advice he gives that will help you.
