Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Daniel Tieman, Founder of Stealth Media, located in Alsip, IL, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I help everyday people start and launch their own online marketing agency. The same type of agency that I own that does over 1.2M in revenue every year. We also help existing agencies grow and scale.

Tell us about yourself

What motivated me to start a business was knowing nothing was going to be handed to me, and I had to survive from a single-mother household. Now that my agency is over 7 Figures and I have a team in place, I am now starting to help people who are walking in the shoes I used to walk in. What motivates me is knowing how badly I wanted out of my original 9-5 and knowing others want out too.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Helping one of my employees buy her first house.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Managing people and emotions. I have a tough time with people who have a victim mindset; my mindset is if someone has done it once, so can I, just like the 4-minute mile.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Fix your mindset first; business is more mental than anything.
  2. Find people who are doing or have down what you want to do.
  3. Business is not like the movies; it can be really, really, really hard work with ups and downs.

Where can people find you and your business?
