Ep.183 ~ Dissecting a 7-Figure Business ~ Mike O’Donnell

On today’s episode, we welcome Mike O’Donnell the founder of CaveTools to the show. Mike and I dig into his story growing CaveTools into a 7-figure business. What is great about this episode is Mike really opened up to describe is process on creating effective SOP’s, using the 80/20 Method for marketing, a new thought on content.  Towards the end of the podcast, Mike shares his thoughts on the difference between the 5-figure, 6-figure, and 7-figure mentalities. He also offers his thoughts on what it would take for him to reach 8-figures in his business.

“Five-figures, your strategy is the quickest way to money. Six-figures, is more about delegation, starting to build the team around you and letting go of control. To grow from six-figures to seven-figures it’s more about breaking down yourself.” Mike O’Donnell
