24 Questions with Joe Layne

Joe Layne is the Founder of Dash Now and the boy who fell down 100 times but got back up 101.

As a young boy growing up in the inner city of Las Vegas without a dad, I had no choice but to fight to survive. Watching my mother get kicked around by life while trying to put food on the table for myself and 3 siblings planted a deep desire inside my soul to help my mother. It was this desire to show the world who was in charge that would ultimately be the fuel for my success.

I started my first business just out of high school building websites for friends and after 16 long hard years of grinding and killing myself I sold it for 8 figures and changed the course of my families future forever. No longer will life kick us around.

If a poor boy like myself can find the inner strength to change my life, I believe anyone can. It is now my life mission to help millions of other people become financially free and experience life without limits.
