169 – From Nothing to Overflow with Jeff Hall

169 – From Nothing to Overflow with Jeff Hall

Jeff Hall never had a choice but to become an entrepreneur.    At age 7 he sold candy because money meant escaping his life of poverty and neglect.    At age 13, he acquired a reputation as a computer nerd at school quite by accident and began working on his school’s computers.  At the age of fifteen, Jeff started his business in order to save his family from being evicted, and at age 17 was lying about his age to get the commercial lease for his first office.    23 years later built up Overflow café helping small businesses become popular online.

It was fantastic to chat with Jeff and learn about his journey.  Bottom line is Jeff loves to help people, and give back!  Jeff dives deep into what it was like as born in South Africa very poor with dirt floors and no electricity then moving to Canada at age 4, seeing snow for the first time, a television and crosswalks.

In this interview we give you the inside scoop from direct experience so you can avoid the obvious potholes we stepped into.  I’ve coached many of my clients through the process of scaling their businesses for growth and how to avoid common mistakes that I went through it myself.

In this Episode you’ll discover:

  • Jeff shares details on investing in over 200 Kickstarter programs and the very best on being a pen that creates 3D objects
  • He shares the importance of Just say NO, and how it has helped him increase revenue
  • Jeff explains his biggest risk dropping out of school to support his family
  • This time next year he will diversify his investment portfolio with lower risk and have 9 or 10 detached houses rented
  • Jeff shares his rituals on minimalistic mindset
  • Why the book Never Broken written by singer/songwriter Jewel has been so inspirational that he buys it to give to people
