2: Big Brother Winner Dan Gheesling on Leading Your Audience


Dan Gheesling is known all across the reality TV scene for his insane “performances” on Big Brother US, but I wanted to talk to him about what he’s done with his brand since the show. He’s a speaker, author, coach, YouTube gamer, vloggers. So many passions. So many accomplishments. I knew he would have great advice for living a successful marketing lifestyle. And I was right.

Is the internet a fad?

Don’t be this guy


A First Thing:

Being a good listener. As early as middle school and high school, confidence came more naturally and and Dan surrounded himself with more people who genuinely enjoy helping people.


A Big Thing:

Reality television gave Dan the platform he is able to use today to share his message. Although most people won’t let the image of him go of a reality TV star, he’s able to build a brand that helps people more in the arena of his passions such as coaching and leadership so that he can live the marketing lifestyle for a brand that he actually loves.
