David Schneider is no stranger to the ups and downs of following his own path. A Harvard graduate turned travel blogger, David made the leap to entrepreneurship and never looked back.

“If the project you’re working on is not taking up your full time, you’re probably not attempting something big enough.”

Knowing that his travel blog business was no longer working, David decided to switch gears and focus his time and energy on something more sustainable. Today, he’s in the trenches building NinjaOutreach.com, a blogger outreach SaaS solution which offers a variety of services for bloggers, startups, small businesses, and digital marketers.

(Update – Dave no longer runs NinjaOutreach, but can be found at lesschurn.io and daveschneider.me)

In this week’s episode, I sit down with David to discuss the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and the lessons learned along the way.

If you’re just starting out, or feeling the strain of trying to get your new venture off the ground, David will provide you with some valuable insights that will allow you to bypass the big mistakes that he made.
