Today we’d like to introduce you to Donnie Boivin.
Hi Donnie, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I was a sales guy with 20 years of experience that got tired of making everyone else wealthy. I started my business and ran it straight into the ground. I had no clue how to be a business owner. Then I found podcasting and it taught me a lot of things. We turned the company Success Champion around, and into a multi-business operation that serves thousands of business owners.
The Success Champion family of companies includes: The Badass Business Summit, coming September 23rd – 25th 2021, Success Champion Networking, Champions Table Masterminds, Success Champions Consulting group, Growth Mode Podcast, and Events with an Edge.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I had to learn to be a business owner and then a CEO. When I started out, instead of building a company, I built a really crappy job for myself. I was doing everything except running the business. Once I learned that to grow and scale requires personal growth and a team life started to be a lot more fun and the business started to grow faster.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
All of our companies have a focus of helping business owners scale. No one sets out to create a job for themselves. We started a company to achieve to business freedom.
I am most excited about the Badass Business Summit. 17 speakers are flying in from all over the US teaching everything from Sales, Social Selling, Mindset, Business Growth, How to Get Your Book Done, and more! And there will be a ton of networking! BadassBusinessSummit.com
In addition to that, we launched Success Champion Networking in March of 2020 to fix all the things people hate about traditional networking. We have grown to 42 chapters across the US and are adding more weekly.
Here’s what our members love about Success Champion Networking:
1. All meetings are virtual. No commutes and lost hours staring at a windshield. You can join a meeting from wherever you are.
2. Each meeting is different. No same boring-ass meeting each week.
3. Not everyone with a heartbeat can be a member; you must be voted in. This is not a contest about how many members we can get. It’s about getting the right people in the room.
4. No MLM, network marketing, or direct marketing organizations.
5. 80% of each chapter must be B2B in nature. Some of our chapters are 100% B2B.
6. We focus on helping businesses scale and grow. Each meeting has a focus on training and education and all training workshops we offer are included with membership.
7. We focus on growing your network globally. Each Thursday, all the members of SCN come together via Zoom to learn and network.
8. No longer do you have to sit in one solitary group and not be a part of your community. Members interact with other members from around the world on a daily basis.
We plan to take Success Champions Networking Global and are in discussions to do so now. When you put a group of rockstar people together that understand business development you’re not giving to gain, you’re giving because it’s the right thing to do. And everything changes. Our chapters are for the people who are tired of being in a room listening to boring presentations, stupid jingles, and forced referrals.
Most networking is focused on the rookie that doesn’t know how to network. We want the rockstars going big with their businesses.
