Building a $360m+ Business While Beating Cancer with Dave Woodward

Dave Woodward is a world-class marketing expert, the CEO of Clickfunnels, and a stage 4 brain cancer survivor. Earlier this year, Dave was told he had a month to live—yet he's on the podcast today, cancer-free and on his way to a full recovery. Thanks to his neverending optimism, world-class doctors, and a strict health regimen Dave was able to beat cancer in just three months and get back to running one of the most successful funnel builders in the world.

In this episode, Nick and Dave discuss Dave's history with cancer—from diagnosis to becoming cancer free—and how it has affected his outlook on life. Dave explains some of the health tricks he used to help his body overcome cancer and how they can also help people in their everyday lives. Nick and Dave then get into business talk, discussing some of the new features coming to Clickfunnels, what is and isn't working in digital marketing right now, and how to build meaningful relationships with your customers through the right communication channels.

Russell and Todd felt immediate kinship to Dave and invited him to come onboard. Dave became a vital part of the team and for Dave, it’s never about the ‘title’ of CEO...it’s about RESULTS.
