How an Entrepreneur Turned Rejection into a Multi-Million Dollar Business – with David Ciccarelli [059]

How an Entrepreneur Turned Rejection into a Multi-Million Dollar Business - with David Ciccarelli

If you've ever watched the TV show Shark Tank you can probably empathize with me. We see aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their business to a panel of ‘shark' investors and most get rejected. Today's guest auditioned for Dragon's Den, the Canadian version of Shark Tank. But he was rejected before he even got on the show. The ‘dragons' told him that he didn't have a ‘real business'. He took that rejection and turned it into a multi-million dollar business.

David Ciccarelli is the co-founder and CEO of Voices.com, an online marketplace that connects business people with professional voice over talent. The company was founded in 2005 and its customers range from small business to Fortune 500 including NBC, Comcast and Cisco. David bootstrapped the company and grew it from nothing into a multi-million dollar business.
