Danny Iny is the founder and CEO of Mirasee and best-selling author of nine published books, including his newest book: Leveraged Learning. He is the host of the Business Reimagined Podcast and is also the creator of the acclaimed Course Builder’s Laboratory training program, which provides all the instruction, coaching, and support that entrepreneurs need to build and launch a profitable online course.  All of this grew out of humble beginnings; Danny dropped out of high school at age 15 because he was bored. And while he made several wrong turns, he’s fond of saying that failure isn’t the end of the story—it’s a “plot twist.”  Back in 2011, Danny started Firepole Marketing with less than nothing; he had no traffic, no subscribers, no relationships with any influencers in the industry, and over a quarter million dollars in personal debt, left over from his last failed startup.    In just a few short years, he transformed Firepole Marketing into Mirasee and grew the business to multiple-seven figures in revenue.
Marie Appel is the Manager of Analytics at The Commit Partnership which has become the largest educational community-based collective impact organization in the U.S. as measured by either staff, by budget, or by total students supported (790,000+ ages 0 thru 22).  After growing up in a small town of 300 to becoming the first in her family to go to college (she went to Harvard on a scholarship), Marie Appel is a true believer in the power of good education.  She also learned from her own experience that in far too many communities around the U.S. there are few resources and little support for economically disadvantaged students.   Today Marie has taken her passion for learning and helping others realize their potential through education to the next level -- teaching herself analytics by watching Youtube videos and taking additional coursework after she graduated from college.  In this episode, Marie talks about how young people can break into the field of education, beyond working as teachers or educators and what skills and life experiences are most useful to those with a passion for helping improve the field of education.
Marie Appel grew up in a town of 300 in a lower, middle class family.  She was the first in her family to go to college and scored a scholarship that allowed her to go to Harvard for only $8,000 for her entire four year education.  While she was at Harvard, Marie earned extra money during various breaks by cleaning the dorms, specifically the showers, using a credit card to scrape off the soap scum on the walls.  But she also participated in amazing experiences at Harvard, like the sailing team, which she believes helped her develop resilience, organization and teamwork -- life skills.
