From doing garage sales at 10 years old to starting and growing an event, marketing and management business to a multimillion dollar company before he was 25 years old, Daniel Priestley has always been an entrepreneur.

But unlike many entrepreneurs, he takes a unique approach to what it takes to have a successful business.
