Already a seven-figure marketing specialist at 32, he now focuses on training the new guard of digital entrepreneurs.
In a crowded field of tech-startup wannabes, Dylan Ogline is fomenting a quiet revolution. While others in his early-thirties cohort jostle to come up with the “next big thing,” Ogline has carved out a comfortable niche within the tried-and-true.
He built his company, Ogline Digital, into a seven-figure powerhouse with under 20 clients. He did this by doing one thing and doing it very well — direct-response digital marketing.
In doing so, he represents a new breed of entrepreneur. Possessed by no burning desire to expand his service portfolio, destroy his competitors, or dominate his market, Ogline puts abundance first. His lean business covers his financial needs and then some, leaving him free to pursue passions like travel, hockey, and charity work.
But that doesn’t mean Ogline is resting by the pool 12 hours a day. His next venture — giving back. He’s not trying to crowd others out of his field, but invite people in.
To that end, Ogline founded Agency 2.0, an educational program designed to teach others to follow his example and build “lifestyle” businesses like his — lean, mean, and scrappy. Entrepreneurs helping other entrepreneurs, a rising tide that lifts as many boats as possible.
A high school dropout and self-described “unemployable entrepreneur,” Ogline founded his first business at 14.
If Ogline has his way, America will soon see many more entrepreneurs just like him — consummate hustlers who work smarter, not harder, leveraging the 80/20 rule to provide even more value to the marketplace than they extract in the form of monetary reward.
Those who drop out of the traditional “workforce,” leaving corporate ladders and expensive degrees behind in favor of higher-leverage, higher-satisfaction pursuits that create not only wealth but also a renewed sense of personal freedom. The freedom to work where they want, when they want, pursue passion projects, take risks, and build their own destiny.
If the American workforce is lucky, many more careers will begin to resemble the globetrotting trajectory of Dylan Ogline — perhaps with the help of Agency 2.0. For the time being, he is one of the top young entrepreneurs to watch in 2022.
