Follow Me On
Raised in sunny Southern California, I learned to love all kinds of sports, the outdoors, and picked up the love for travel from my Father. Snow skiing became my passion, having started at a very early age. I have skied on three continents and at many beautiful places around the world. Now, I am able to give back to people less fortunate than me by guiding and teaching with Disabled Sports USA once a month at Mammoth Mountain ski resort in California.
Working with children and adults with Autism, prosthetic limbs, blindness spinal cord injuries, as well as amputees, and other disabilities is incredibly rewarding, but most of all fun. Seeing the smiles on their faces when they do something for the first time, or feel the cool wind in their faces, or make it down a challenging run that they were not sure they could conquer is one of my greatest pleasures. Our group motto is “If I can do this, I can do anything”.
I am also a certified advanced scuba diver and have been certified in sky diving. I surf, snowboard, bungee jump, water ski, golf, fish with my Dad, Brother-in-Law and Nephews, play competitive softball and play with my amazing dog, Drew. Yes, I keep pretty busy and try to get in some international travel as often as possible. I am competitive by nature and typically a ‘take charge’ kind of guy.
Over 23 years of working for a sales promotions company selling promotional products has offered me a very good opportunity to travel, and make a good living. I made Presidents Club 18 of those years, putting me at the top 6-8% in the nation, industry wide, but being a 100% commission salesman made it difficult to leave for any long period of time. In the last three years of selling promotional products, I felt as though I was constantly rebuilding my business. With corporate buyouts, mergers and companies relocating, it became increasingly difficult, especially during the recent and current recession. It seemed like a week didn’t go by without me learning of another client that had been laid off or another customer’s budget had been cut. Times got tough and my business had dropped by about 40%.
I knew I had to make a change, because if I kept doing the same thing, I was probably going to get the same results and that wasn’t going to work for me. A while back I decided to start a diligent search online to find a home business opportunity that I believed in and offered training, a very good product, great support, involved leadership, the opportunity to make significant income in a relatively short period of time and build residual income. After watching many video presentations, reading hundreds of pages of information, looking at and researching dozens of companies and opportunities and taking a lot of notes, one company clearly stood above the rest, Carbon Copy Pro.
It was then time to take action and I started my new career with my own home based Internet Marketing business. I have found the training, ongoing support, leadership, products and income potential with Carbon Copy Pro to be amazing all the way around. Every day I am reassured that my research paid off and I made the right choice. I felt that I was finally doing what I had been meant to do, running my own business.
You see, from the time I was a small boy selling Christmas cards door to door, (Sometimes even the used cards my parents had taken off display after the holidays and thrown in the trash), having my own paper route, shinning shoes at the local car wash, mowing neighbors lawns, selling Cutco Cutlery, etc., etc., I was always looking for better ways to make money and destined to have my own business. I had tried Multi-Level Marketing before with four different companies. Those experiences let me know that I never wanted to slyly get my family and friends to an “Opportunity meeting” and that I simply was not a networker.
I had known for sometime that the internet was where the money was going to be, but had no idea of how I would or could profit from it. The down turn in my 23 year career was the kick in the pants that got me to finally dive in and it landed me in the wonderful family called Carbon Copy Pro. It does feel like a family and they are the most giving family of any business I have ever heard of or experienced. To put it simply, I finally knew what I had thought for years, the magic is in the Internet and in the leverage that it offers. Nearly all the big bucks in product marketing today are found on the world wide web. Period!
Well, needless to say that setting up my first real home office was both a little scary and a huge motivation and joy. Knowing that my goals and dreams are closer now than ever before is an amazing feeling. The realization that I will be able to do all the things I have wanted to do and go all the places I have wanted to see, is a constant source of inspiration and drive to achieve more and to help others achieve their goals and dreams as well.
Now, instead of worrying which client had lost their job or what customer had cut their budgets or been purchased by a different company, I wake up with a smile on my face, knowing I have the world at my fingertips on the internet to grow my business, learn new things, meet new people and take steps towards my goals and dreams.
