EPISODE 001

David Meltzer

David Meltzer is the Co-Founder and CEO of Sports 1 Marketing and S1Media House. He's a two-time #1 best-selling author and has been named a Top 10 Keynote Speaker by Forbes and Entrepreneur.

With John Henry of Cofound Harlem, and Harlem Capital Partners

In this podcast, David shares how financial hardship in his family inspired an entrepreneurial spirit in his childhood. By his early 20s, David had risen to the top of his game in the business world, becoming a millionaire. He lectured around the globe and saw rapid success in every business project he touched.

In his 30s as a multimillionaire, he went on a rapid downward spiral that ended in bankruptcy. It was only then that David realized, in order to revive and thrive, he needed to systematize what had made him successful in the first place. He has since emerged to realize even more rewarding heights of success in business and life.

He shares with us his sales lessons, negotiations stories, and the golden rule of entrepreneurship which people need to stay in business. Today, he invests in companies and in people by executive producing and hosting Entrepreneur’s original show, Elevator Pitch, with nearly 40 million views.

David has created a platform that uses four overarching principles that have allowed him to communicate and mentor everyone from college students to c-suite executives. These four principles allow David to live by his mission to “make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun.”

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How David’s childhood impacted his career success
  • David’s first entrepreneurial experience as a child
  • The show Elevator Pitch and important sales lessons
  • The universal law of three no’s to close deals
  • The best lesson that anyone could ever learn about money
  • A business model to generate revenue
