I’m so glad that I was introduced to the founder and CEO of Disruptive Advertising, Jacob Baadsgaard. I was pulled to interview him instantly when I saw the powerful link between his income and generosity level. Believing that tithing supports an abundance mindset he’s also incorporated those beliefs into his business too, but creating a company charity committee.
In addition to the above, Jacob created Disruptive Advertising to help other businesses get the most out of their Facebook and Google ad dollars by getting their data in order and creating the right website experience. With clients spending millions per month in ads, it’s obvious Jacob and his team know what they’re doing. In this episode, he shares a few key tips that contributed to his success in hopes that it may help you turn around the performance of yours. I hope our conversation inspires you to do and give more, too!
