12 Laws of the Jungle

Dan Cleland

Your must-have machete for the jungle of entrepreneurship.

One month after Daniel Cleland scales his startup to seven figures, solidifying its rank in the top three ayahuasca healing centers in the world, COVID-19 obliterates the company’s revenues. He now has sixty days to find hundreds of thousands of dollars in survival funds or face extinction.

Racing against time, Cleland hacks his way through the proverbial (and sometimes literal) jungle one perilous step at a time. Walking the tightrope of zero revenues. Connecting to other high-profile entrepreneurs like Patrick Bet-David and Aubrey Marcus. Applying unorthodox tactics to prevent employee AWOLs. Staving off agonizing betrayals.

In his former debut, Pulse of the Jungle, Cleland described how the Peruvian jungle awakened him, expanding his mind with new insights into entrepreneurship. This time, unprecedented global lockdowns test him to the limit, revealing the twelve primal laws of entrepreneurial survival that kept him alive and thriving in an unforgiving market.

I've advised Daniel and his company, Soltara, for the past few years and have always been able to count on their integrity in business. Daniel impressively navigated his company through the COVID crisis and has consistently been able to serve the community even in times of difficulty. Daniel and Soltara show what this world needs now-heart-centered, effective leaders who, in success, don't lose sight of their core mission: to improve the world we live in.
