Seth sold his first company when he was 29 for just under $20 million bucks.
– But he was miserable.
The next several years were some of the most confusing and unhappy years of his life.
After losing most of his money from the sale, he got a second chance to do it all over again, and grew another company even bigger ($60M/yr in revenue) that just recently sold.
