Dane Atkinson is a tech entrepreneur who started his first company at 17 and has run almost a dozen more since. He's so friendly that he manages to sound cheerful while explaining the art of hiring workers for as little money possible.
"I have on many occasions paid the exact same skill set wildly different fees because I was able to negotiate with one person better than another," he says.
