He charmed eager-to-please assistants, gaining their trust along with total access to a company’s most valuable information.

Jan Cavelle is the author of Scale for Success and Start for Success, which are books aimed at helping entrepreneurs to grow their businesses

After having micro businesses in the past, things collapsed for Jan and she found herself as a single Mum on social support needing to make a future for her family.  She started off by selling an assortment of goods to get by, which refined itself into to being furniture.  To ensure a steady supply, she went into manufacturing, built the business up to 50 employees and won many awards over the next couple of decades.

But then she lost her passion and the reasons for doing it, coupled with increased problems having made errors in the foundations of the business and she walked away from it all, virtually overnight.

But she soon got bored, she missed writing articles for business publications and decided to start writing books to help entrepreneurs.

This is a story of starting up in business and getting the foundations completely wrong, losing your passion, and then following your childhood dreams to rediscover your passion and to live your life on purpose.

I Ran Firewalk Events for Tony Robbins,
Here Are My Truths

Jeff Smith Talks With Dave Albin

Tony Robbins Firewalk Events

Imagine being interviewed by one of the top podcasting host on earth. Like many things there are those who are good at what they do, some are great at what they do, some are excellent at what they do and less than 2% are absolutely “outstanding” at what they do, and Jeff Smith is in that 2%.

All I can say is if you get the opportunity to be interviewed by the Master himself you better take advantage of it. Having Jeff Smith as your host is a life changing experience. He has a level of compassion, influence and caring unlike any host I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. This is all in addition to his “all in” attitude and mindset, professionalism, and attention to detail.

I hope you like this interview we did together where he asked me questions that no one has ever asked me before, and please join and follow Jeff’s work.
Dave Albin

Episode Release Date Tuesday 13 June, 2023

In today’s episode Jeff Smith, The KPI Guy, is talking with Dave Albin

Dave is the #1 Firewalk Instructor in America. Firewalking is a 1,000 year old rite of passage ritual where you literally walk across hot burning coals.

Dave worked with Tony Robbins for 20 years running his fire walk events, and he and Tony set a World Record in London in 2005 with more than 12,300 people walking barefoot over the burning coals. Then in 2014, Dave started his own business called Fire walk Productions and during his time, he’s fire walked hundreds of thousands of people.

His success has a very dark, scary and violent past. On June 8th, 1988 he put a gun to his head to stop the excruciating pain from both drug and alcohol addiction and 2023 will mark 35 years of sobriety.

If you admire Tony Robbins, his work and his achievements, then this show is for you! Dave Albin is the guy who ran the amazing Fire Walks 🔥 for Tony for 20 years, and he’s sharing his secrets here! In this episode, Dave lays bare his life, before, during and after his time with Tony, and believe me, it’s very dark, very violent and very abusive.

The secrets he shares are life-changing, they’ve changed my life, and they may change your life too.

Ten years later, while studying at Colorado State University, he learned about sales, marketing, and business operations. He made lots of money in college but then spent three times what he earned.

In March of 2005, Matt got married, he was six figures in debt and working at a job he hated as a loan officer. After hitting rock bottom, he then founded a company with the last $100 he had to his name and the company grew to more than $35 million dollars in revenue.

He wrote his first book Become an Award Winning Company in 2011, and his second book called Painted Baby in 2023. He also has a passion to help others who are less fortunate, which is the Matt and Emily Shoup, Spain Study Abroad Scholarship.
