Welcome to the Unsubscribe From The Cubicle Podcast LAUNCH episode! I’m so happy you decided to share your time with me today, and if you like what you hear, I’d love for you to come back for more because we have some exciting episodes on deck.
This show exists for a specific reason. The plan and purpose of this show is to connect with you, the person sitting in their cube day in and day out, not wanting to be there. The person driving home in rush hour traffic on their long commute wishing they could spend more time with their family. And the person that simply wants to wake up every day and spend their time doing what they love. I want to give you an opportunity to learn simple steps to make that happen, as well as hear stories from fellow trail blazers that have made the leap themselves. Will you come along the journey and unsubscribe from your cubicle? I sure hope so!

So first of all…..Who am I?
-There are 2 things that only I am uniquely qualified for:
-A husband to my lovely wife Katie of 7 years
-And Dad to 2 adorable little boys, Caleb who’s 4 and Jackson who’s 1
-Also from Minneapolis Minnesota
Let me give you a quick snapshot of my background
Sales & Recruiting
-MANY MANY J-O-B’s…Many cubicles….
-I’ve been all over the place: Electronics, Major League Baseball, Telecommunications, Real Estate, Recruiting…
-Trust me friend, I know what it feels like to feel trapped. I know what it’s like to not get to spend time doing something you love, or time with your family. I know what it’s like to drive in bumper to bumper traffic all the way across the city. But most importantly, I know what it’s like to have that gut wrenching feeling knowing that day in and day out that you’re not fulfilling your purpose. What you were BORN to do.
-BUT I know what to do to get out, and more importantly HOW to do it.
-And even better than that, it’s not just me. We are going on a journey together as we interview and learn from other exciting entrepreneurs that have left the cubicle world to start and grow their own businesses.
-In our first couple episodes alone we’ve got a couple of OUTSTANDING and EXCITING people from the world of social media that are going to spend time with us including…Kate Erickson with Entrepreneur On Fire, Melonie Dodaro with Top Dog Social Media, Matt Wolfe with Multiply Authority, Trevor Turnbull with Linked Into Leads, Jenn Herman with Jenn’s Trends, Mandy McEwen with Mod Girl Marketing…and the list goes on. I promise you are going to get filled up with fantastic ideas and strategies from these folks that will help you to take the steps necessary to be a business owner yourself. I’m so excited to be a part of your journey!
Let me share quickly about my business Direct Link Consulting– You can check it out at: www.directlinkconsulting.com,
I do 3 things:
I teach sales people how to build and optimize their LinkedIn Profiles.
I train those sales people how to use LinkedIn to find qualified leads/prospects
I plan and execute a strategy to make connections with those prospects in order increase their sales.
That’s it. That’s my business. And it’s allowed me the opportunity to get out of the cubicle, spend more time with my family, and wake up every day doing things I love. I tell you that only to show it’s very realistic and very very doable. My goal for you is to start you on your OWN path. I want to quick pause and share one of my 2 FREE bonuses to give away on this Launch episode. For my business I created a killer LinkedIn Checklist that will help you navigate the LinkedIn waters. It’s something I normally only give away to my paid clients. But I want you to have access to you. Just text “MyChecklist” to the number 44222.
