|My name is Dave Strayer. I have lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for the last 20 years. I was born just up the road in Dayton, graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Civil (Environmental) Engineering and, except for a couple of brief stints in Nashville and Memphis, have been in Cincinnati ever since.
I have been in the network marketing industry since 1995 and have worked with both MLM and Direct Sales companies. I am a trained personal and business coach and have been coaching other network marketers to success since 1998.
Along the way, I have seen the technological revolution that replaced mailing audio tapes and fax-on-demand with the advantages of the Internet. I have also watched too many network marketers “hide” behind the Internet rather than develop the personal skills and attributes that it takes to become a real success in this industry.
I have combined the best of high-tech with the best of high-touch, resulting in a program which has the speed and efficiency of internet marketing with the lasting relationships (and corresponding retention rates) that only come from adding the personal touch to (and through) technology.
I started this blog to be able to share my experience with those new to network marketing in the hopes of shortening their learning curve and helping them avoid the wasted time, effort, and expense of marketing and recruiting systems that are inherently self-limiting. I also work with frustrated networkers who have found that working at either end of the spectrum hasn't given them the results they wanted.
I hope you find the information on my blog useful. Please feel free to participate by commenting on the posts.
If I can be of help in any other way, please let me know.
