Uncomfortable with Jeffrey Gabriel

Uncomfortable with Jeffrey Gabriel

The Uncomfortable Podcast Nobody ever succeeded by coasting in their comfort zone. Hosted by Jeffrey Gabriel, Founder & CEO of Saw.com, the Uncomfortable Podcast has a the simple mission - encouraging more professionals to take a step out of their comfort zone so they can thrive (not just survive!) in the modern working world. Through open and, insightful conversations with business owners, industry experts and thought leaders, the podcast will shares stories, tips secrets and strategies from people who’ve been there, done it and got the t-shirt when it comes to achieving the extraordinary results. Always unscripted. Always unfiltered. Always Uncomfortable. About your host, Jeffrey Gabriel: Jeffrey Gabriel is one of the world’s leading domain brokers, contributing over $500m in domain sales and previously holding the Guinness World Record for highest domain sale of a .com (sex for $13m) and a .org (poker for $1m) as well as Ai.com in a multi-million dollar deal. He wholeheartedly believes that in order to succeed in business, you need to take a permanent step outside of your comfort zone. And that’s exactly what he did in 2019 when he left a well-paying dream job in the Cayman Islands as VP of Sales at Uniregistry to start his own company, Saw.com. Since then, he’s seen plenty of success, but also his fair share of failure. He’s won clients. He’s lost clients. He’s closed deals. He’s missed deals. He’s hired people. He’s fired people. He’s been liked. He’s been disliked. But, throughout his life, he’s always made a conscious effort to keep trying new things that make him ‘uncomfortable’.
