Tim Meuchel is the bestselling author and podcast host of The 10 Factor: From Struggling to Thriving Business in 10 Months. Like many successful entrepreneurs, Tim failed his way to success. He gave up $334,200 in 2008 after resigning from a twelve-year corporate management career to pursue his side business full-time. The business quickly grew 8X and within four months Tim's wife quit her job as well. Several years later a bad business deal left Tim's company almost bankrupt. Tapping into emergency funds, he fought back and restructured the business; resulting in a new profit producing model requiring less than 40% effort. Seeing an opportunity to give back and help other struggling entrepreneurs Tim reverse engineered his process, validated it with top entrepreneurs, and created a ten-month roadmap - The 10 Factor.
