Episode 31: Jacob Baadsgaard

jake baadsgaard podcast

Today for our 31st episode, we will talk with Jacob Baadsgaard, Founder of Disruptive Advertising.

Jake and I had talked previously about our respective businesses, so this was our second time chatting. This time, the introduction came from Andrea Warner, who you may remember from Episode 30 (aka our last guest). It was nice to hear Jake’s story, and I walked away impressed.

I recorded this episode in Arlington, Virginia and when it goes live I will be teaching in Minnesota. Trying to get episodes lined up before a crazy few months ahead with teaching, speaking and our newest course launching in January.

But enough about that, let’s talk about Jake.

Jake is like a textbook case of how to find success in business and a great case study on how to plan for the future. He went to school for an in demand degree, then worked for the hottest technology startup as his first job.

After learning a ton working with hundreds of enterprise clients, he rounded out his experience on the client side. Then he started his own business, which we talk about in detail. It was really a pleasure talking with Jake and I look forward to talking more now that we have made a strong connection.

I hope this conversation impresses you too!
