Testimonial | Mentoring

"Honestly, working with Dave has been the most impactful training that I could have received to build my business. I feel his leadership and business building coaching has had a huge impact on the growth and organization of how my revenue and expansion of my company was going. 

Dave has an uncanny ability to understand my business needs and identify ways to guide me through the maze of issues that being an entrepreneur presents. Dave’s passion for teaching and guiding me has allowed my learning curve to speed up by light years. Without his bird’s eye view of where I was coming from, and what I needed to do for my business to grow at a faster more organized manner I would not be where I am today.

and community members. Our mission with that publication was capturing and sharing positive stories and success habits from people doing awesome things. David was the consummate interviewee. From that conversation on, a friendship and mentorship between David and [myself] started. 

David is a dedicated family man and charismatic, innovative businessman. Over the years I've watched him consistently reinvent himself and his businesses to adapt to new technologies and ideas. Most impressively, he's done this while staying true to his core values. That last point, I believe, is a testament to his great character. 

If you have an opportunity and the capacity to hire David as a speaker or entrepreneurial coach, it's worth it. At minimum, buy his books. They're packed with his lessons for young adults and creating an outstanding company culture. Life lessons and business insights David's shared with me over the years have had a major impact on my life and career."

Ben DeGeorge"I asked Dave five years ago, "What's one thing would you recommend a young professional right out of college with a stable job do now?" Dave said "Figure out a way to buy a rental property as quickly as possible and move into it so that you don't have to pay rent anymore!" 

Five years later I have built my real estate business to 210 apartments and over 60,000 square feet of office space. If he had not encouraged me to buy that first rental property five years ago, I may have waited years to make the first investment.
