Daniel Marcus

CEO at Living Your Brand - Partner at Magnetic


Currently resides in: Western Cape, South Africa

Born in Cape Town South Africa

Hi, my name is Daniel Marcus, a serial entrepreneur with a passion to grow the industries I focus on, and give young aspiring entrepreneurs & startups knowledge from my past and present experiences.

Having founded my first company when I was 19, I have since founded a number of small startups over the past 11 years. As most entrepreneurs experience, I have had my fair share of failures over the years but more recently I have founded and manage two SME’s namely Living Your Brand and Magnetic Software.

Having guidance from my father and a couple of successful acquaintances since I began my journey as an Entrepreneur has proven extremely valuable for me. Having this input and support has made a huge difference in my life and I would like to pass on some of my experiences to help guide you in your current and future ventures.

Being someone that is still growing in business myself, I endeavour to not only pass on my own experiences but will call on my network for guest bloggers and interviews to further add to the experiences from other entrepreneurs.
