About Alan Donegan
Alan founded PopUp in 2012 with Simon Paine after they thought there must be a better way to start a business, without debt and without formal business plans. Alan decided he wanted to start PopUp to make sure that no one else went through the pain he went through starting up his business! Since then, PopUp has gone on to help over 7000 entrepreneurs in 4 continents to do more of what they love.
Alan’s purpose in life is to smash limiting beliefs like “It takes money to make money” and empower people to make their own progress. He has dedicated the last 12 years to learning how to help himself first and then spread that knowledge for free to other people. Entrepreneurship should not just be for the wealthy and Alan is going to Democratise Entrepreneurship and give away the best training he can for free to anyone.
Outside PopUp, Alan loves the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making pizza and occasionally playing with Lego. He is also a regular speaker for the “Financial Independence, Retire Early” (FIRE) movement, which has given him the freedom to enact lifelong ambitions of writing movie scripts and travelling the world with his wife Katie as part of nomadic lifestyle.
Alan has recently launched his own personal blog (www.AlanDonegan.com) and now speaks around the world teaching the PopUp and FIRE methodologies and will combine the two when “The Rebel Entrepreneur” Podcast launches with ChooseFI in 2020.
