It’s hard to imagine how a person who failed at university would receive an invitation to teach at that very same university that flunked him. But that’s what happened for serial entrepreneur Ethan Donati.
“In 2012, my teacher enumerated a list of students he claimed would without-a-doubt become successful in life, and I wasn’t one of them,” recalls Ethan. “Every day I would wake up anxious for the day before it started. I dreaded being in any social setting — God forbid getting called on by a teacher and having to speak in front of the class.” Life in school was indeed a struggle for Ethan, but today there are no remnants of that anxious college student who felt scared for his future life.
All his life, Ethan struggled with anxiety. He would even get kicked out of his kindergarten for being “too shy.” Up to his teenage years, teachers would conclude that Ethan would not become very successful. But what would break most would become a driving force for Ethan. He started building online businesses to avoid having to talk to people, but after experiencing success after success, he would soon receive invitations to speak before crowds.
Today, Ethan Donati leads two companies called My Million Dollar Funnels and Sold Out Seminars. He is also a distinguished TEDx speaker most well-known for his uncanny and excellent approach to marketing. The entrepreneur is best known for his work around neuromarketing, a new approach to business marketing that merges neuroscience and marketing to come up with more targeted and scientifically accurate strategies that drive better results for a business. Ethan also works in human behavior change and digital marketing implementation, two practices that his company My Million Dollar Funnels excels at.
My Million Dollar Funnels is a digital marketing agency that helps brands stay relevant through the newest techniques that work best in today’s evolving marketing strata. The company exists to change their client’s lives by driving more results to grow their business, influence, and revenue. To Ethan Donati and his company, excitement comes from receiving an email from a client saying that they disrupted their thinking and changed their life. Today, My Million Dollar Funnels serves a multitude of clients from five different continents in the world.
Ethan also runs the company Sold Out Seminars, an events company that creates seminars. The company’s main offerings include a done for you marketing system in which Ethan & his team can create almost any entrepreneur into a modern day speaker, hosting their own Sold Out Seminars anywhere in the world online or offline. Through his events, Ethan has impacted the lives of thousands of people.
Ethan Donati also teaches neuromarketing at the University of Melbourne. A true believer of the craft, Ethan advocates the neuroscientific approach to business as if the world depended on it. “It is the only way to accurately predict with scientific backing how well your campaign will go before it is released,” shares Ethan. “These are vital to not only your marketing campaigns but also to your presentations as well.” And the neuromarketing expert practices what he preaches. He has built up his agency and his events business using the same principles he teaches to clients from all over the world.
