63: Dan Clark on Brain.fm, Entrepreneurship, and Productivity

How should businesses be responding to global pandemic? Daniel Clark says his company’s #1 priority is offering genuine help in this time of crisis. He’s also listening to his customers and figuring out how to adapt his products to better suit their new working from home needs.

In this episode of Social PR Secrets, host Lisa Buyer sat down with entrepreneur Danial Clark. When Dan started making websites at the age of 13, he fell in love with the concept of using technology to help people. He worked as a developer for years while traveling the world. Then, he found Brain.fm. After using it for the first time, he called the company a dozen times and offered to work there for free because he believed in the product so much. Two years later, he became the CEO. This year, he was featured in Forbes 30 Under 30.

Lisa and Dan discuss the groundbreaking technology behind Brain.fm and its roots in neuroscience. Dan shares how his company is responding to the current crisis, including creating communications on how to best utilize the technology for work from home and hosting guided group focus sessions on YouTube Live. He reveals how listening to customers’ struggles in this moment is helping them develop new, even more useful products.  Dan lets us in on some of the upcoming product launches from Brain.fm — such as wearables and new apps. Then, Dan reveals some of his own digital detox secrets. He divulges about his journaling technique and how and why he’s utilizing exercise and meditation now more than ever. He also gives a few book recommendations and explains his preference for physical books.

Dan says Brain.fm is like a good knife: It’s most powerful when you know how to use it well. Want to learn about the Pomodoro method? Or hear how to find your own passions? Tune in to the episode to get all these nuggets and more!
