Living Outside the Box (Todd Brown)

  • Episode #24

Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it. 

Todd Brown is the founder and CEO of Marketing Funnel Automation, a marketing consulting company that helps entrepreneurs create marketing campaigns to acquire buyers predictably and consistently. A self-described shy, reserved kid and below-average student, Todd found his way from misfit to highly successful entrepreneur by carving his own unique pathway to self-confidence and freedom. 

In this episode of Making It, Todd reminds us, through his own inspiring journey, that if we want to be successful and have an extraordinary life, we have to be willing to be bold, take risks and step out into an existence unknown to the average person. By following an average path, we can expect to have an average life. To make it, we must separate from the herd and do something different.

“You follow the herd and you get what the herd gets; you do what the average [person] does and you get what the average [person] gets, period.” ”

“To me, making it really just means being able to live life on your own terms, whatever that may be, whatever that means.”
