Not all entrepreneurs start as someone who was successful in academics or social skills. Eric Siu found his success starting as a serious eSports and poker player then converting his experience into the world of digital marketing. Eric is the CEO of ClickFlow, a content intelligence software that helps grow SEO traffic.

He is also an investor and an advisor to many who look to bring their businesses to the next level. He’s worked with companies such as Amazon, Uber, and Salesforce as a digital marketing advisor and now shares his expertise through two podcasts and his new book, Leveling Up.

I’m looking forward to getting into today’s episode and learning more about mastering the game of life from the master himself.
