Guiness World Record Attempt: Most Miles Run in 24 Hours (personal)


In April of 2012, Me and my crew set out to test the limits of running and raising money for charity. We didn't end up breaking the record (which is just at 180 miles), but we raised thousands of dollars for To Write Love On Her Arms. I'm going to break the record some day. It just didn't happen on April 14th...

Manfred Gollent, CEO | Edgy Conversations

There are a few times in life when you meet someone that just blows you away (in a positive sense!). Dan is one of those people for me. A well educated, bold thinker with turbocharged energy and no fear of being undiplomatic, Dan will call things by their names in a relentless pursuit of excellence. Compromising on results is not a part of his philosophy and when he engages in something he does so without compromise, too. If you ever have a chance to see Dan speak - and he does that quite regularly - seize the opportunity as you will be in for an extraordinary treat!
