In David Riklan’s business, it’s all about self-improvement. But for David, making it is about other people — the impact he has on them. And despite a huge early setback, he held tight to his vision of helping millions of people and has achieved it.
Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it.
David Riklan is an author, coach, speaker, and the founder of SelfGrowth.com, one of the most visited self-improvement websites in the world.
“That was probably the biggest thing for me — to have this impact and constantly help people improve their lives in one way, shape, or form.”
