Dan has spent thousands of hours studying more than 1,000 unlikely high performers.

The stories he will share with you will leave you spellbound — and motivated to create an outrageous success story of your own.

Using powerful examples of real world triumph, Dan will share the defining qualities that drive ordinary people to achieve outrageous success regardless of the odds stacked against them — extreme behavior, disciplined activity, a giving mindset, and a human strategy.

You'll walk away from this experience with the exact same strategies that Dan uses to empower billion dollar companies to beat their competitors at the game of business. He calls it EDGY. You might just call it "being awesome."


Since birth Dan Waldschmidt has been refusing to accept business as usual.

Sure, he had a lawn mowing business at 12, but he turned his into a money-making machine (though he opted not to tell his mom about his increased profits).

He ran track like plenty of other kids, but he pushed himself to break his high school's mile record. He got the usual entry-level job right out of college, but then he changed the sales process, earned millions of dollars for the company, and became CEO by the time he was 25.

These days, Dan is a business strategist. A popular speaker. And an ultra-runner.

Dan and his team help companies all over the world arrive at business-changing breakthrough ideas by moving past outdated conventional wisdom, social peer pressure, and the selfish behaviors that stop them from being high performers.

The Wall Street Journal calls his blog, Edgy Conversations, one of the Top 7 sales blogs anywhere on the internet. He's been profiled in Business Week, INC Magazine, Business Insider, and on dozens of radio programs. Hundreds of his articles on unconventional business strategy have been published.

If you want to catch up with Dan, you'll probably need to lace up some running shoes and hit the road. He's the crazy dude running against traffic. In the meanwhile, read his blog, send him an email, ask him for help.

Whatever you do, don't just do nothing.

Dan Waldschmidt book


That is my own personal battle cry. It is the common theme in everything I do (and trust me – it is a lot).
What is EDGY? Four letters. Four timeless attitudes for breakthrough business growth. Extreme behavior. Disciplined activity. Giving mindset. Y(h)uman strategy. Regardless of your business, your goals, your industry, or the specific challenges in your way, EDGY is your key to turning things around. It's your roadmap. Your ideology. Your war plan.
Whether you are just dipping your toe into EDGY or you have already done a full on cannonball to embrace it, there are many corners of the EDGY universe to explore. Check out all the different areas you can play in below. From the book to my consulting practice, you can explore the EDGY mantra from several different angles.
Remember, be awesome.

Edgy Conversations – The Book

EDGY Conversations is a gut-wrenchingly honest, no-holds-barred discussion about confronting and fixing the beliefs and behaviors that limit your ability to be amazing. It tackles head-on the uncomfortable yet powerful truth that pain, fear and love – yes, love – have a huge impact on success. EDGY is how ordinary people become extraordinary.
EDGY is how a master chef, a World War II veteran, a 15-year-old girl, a homeless retired paramedic, an Australian potato farmer and a shoe executive became amazing, did the unthinkable and forever changed their corner of the world.
And EDGY is how you can achieve outrageous success, regardless of who or where you are in life right now. You don't need another book on success. You just need to be more EDGY. Order a copy now!
