About Today’s Guest, Brian Deegan:

Brian DeeganIt is hard to pigeonhole today’s guest, Brian Deegan. On one hand he is an incredibly talented action sports star who really put the sport of Motocross on the map. On the other hand, he is an extremely successful entrepreneur with his brand Metal Mulisha which has grown to over 30 million in sales.

Here is a little more about Brian:

He is a Motocross legend, off-road racer, Metal Mulisha team owner, 2010 Lucas Oil Rider of the Year, and businessman. Known as “The General”, Brian Deegan is now taking on the world of NASCAR. At the age of 17, outfitted with only a credit card, dirt bike, and an old truck, Brian left his hometown of Omaha for Southern California with dreams of becoming the next big name in Motocross. His company, Metal Mulisha, has since grown from a 3 million dollar company to a 30 million dollar company.

In this special interview (from a racetrack nonetheless), I pick Brian’s brain on his journey so far. It is jammed full of life, sports, and business lessons.

Enjoy!

  • LISTEN TO THIS INTERVIEW!

    I have to be honest, when I first saw the headline I almost clicked away and discounted it. I mean what can someone who rides dirt bikes teach me about business???

    The answer, A GOOD BIT!

    David and Brian sum up my big take away from this interview near the end.

    When you are passionate about something, DO IT! The money will follow.

    Thanks again for bringing a great interview, David. As I mentioned on FB the other day, I LOVE the variety of interviews you bring. It keeps me coming back over, and over, and over…
