Hi, I'm David!
I'm a strategy analyst and former business consultant. I bring clarity to complexity and simplicity to needless complication... (translation: I speak truth to B.S. and fix broken businesses with systems & methods that actually work). I did that for over 25 years (see client logos below and a few select testimonials, too).
Now, I love teaching workshops for people just like you as well as other individuals, small business owners, educators, coaches, consultants, professional practitioners -- and anyone genuinely interested in becoming personally or professionally more productive, profitable, healthy, happy, and prosperous -- using simple action steps and strategies that are both practical and powerful to create the results they truly want, with ease.
What People Are Saying...
“Thank you, David, for working so hard for us by breaking the rules and then coming up with these new systems that actually work — savings us millions of dollars, and by increasing productivity, profitability, and by turning the worst store in the company into the #1 store for sales profits, inventory control, labor management, and productivity… not to mention all your new training programs! All of us at Starbucks are very lucky to have your expertise.”

"One of your strategies quadrupled my internet sales in just 4 weeks! One of the first strategies you developed for me turned an $80 expenditure into $11,000 in just 30 days. After that I kept doubling my internet income every month and now I'm making more from my internet sales than I ever thought possible. I'm glad I've sought your easy-to-understand sales and marketing expertise... you’ve made me tons of money, and have shown me how to reach my customers and retail partners with ease -- and you accomplish it all with little or no cash outlays, spot-on perfect judgment and bullet-proof insight. I highly recommend him to you."

I feel a need to say thank you -- from the world. Apparently you have made manifest that which is in your soul for the world to benefit.
