"I suffered a pretty heavy burnout...anti-depressents, the whole thing. On the outside it probably looked like I was on top of the world, but deep down I was working 16 hours a day, living on coffee, wasn't working out, wasn't eating well..I ended up hiring eight people..to remove myself from the business." Chris Ducker is a serial entrepreneur who moved from London to the Philippines seventeen years ago and now owns and operates three businesses employing 450 people including a recruitment consultancy, call centre and co-workign space to support local startups. He managed to remove himself from the day to day running of these businesses and now helps entrepreneurs like you and rebuild successful businesses around their personal brand. He's worked with well-known entrepreneurs such as Pat Flynn, Gary Vaynerchuk, John Lee Dumas and John Jantsch.
I'm also joined by John Auckland who is the founder of Tribe First, a crowdfunding support agency that works with startups both nationally and internationally, helping businesses meet their crowdfunding targets and gain funding. After crowdfunding the biggest ever sports crowdfunding campaign with David Brabham, former triple Formula 1 champions, for over £300k, he knew he was on to something. John started his own business with a Virgin StartUp loan, and he's gone on to become Virgin StartUp ambassador.
