026: How to Control Your Brainwaves to Create a Peak State of Mind On Command (Using Music) – Dan Clark

Daniel Clark is a serial entrepreneur and the CEO, Brain.fm, an innovative technology company that helps users be more productive through the use of functional music created by composers and artificial intelligence.

Daniel has been in love with technology- and its potential to positively impact the world- for as long as he can remember. From building websites when he was 13, starting a design and advertising business at 18 and driving $2MM in revenue for multinational brands as a director for a boutique ad agency, he has truly been at the forefront of how technology can exponentially grow successful businesses.

One of Brain.fm’s first users, he called the company 12 times before they agreed to bring him in for an interview. When he did receive an offer, he jumped at it (even working for free for the first few weeks). He eventually moved up to Head of Technology, and is now the CEO. As CEO, Daniel is constantly striving to build a company that can not only change the world through music, but also be one of the best companies for people to work for and grow with.
