Dan was a heavy weight from DAY 1, making his worldly debut at 10 lb. 11 oz. in the small southern town of Mobile Alabama. This is the place where the famous battle cry, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!” was first bellowed in the waters of Mobile Bay, “Moon Pies” are thrown from Mardi Gras floats (by the way, don’t eat them, they taste awful!) and the film “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” was filmed there (it’s a crazy place, no doubt). Dan did manage to escape and now lives in an even crazier place where the rivers have no water and the land is ruled by gila monsters and wild javelina (Tucson AZ, if you’re curious).
Today, Dan is 13 times the man he used to be according to a cheap bathroom scale he bought on Amazon… and he keeps himself busy helping people sell stuff online. Oh yes he tried other things first, like teaching classical guitar at the University of Illinois, The College of DuPage and in the back alleys of Chicago. Tired of being flat broke, for a while Dan started selling and teaching real estate. He even did a short stint in the flea market business. But like vinyl records, fleas were on a downward spiral.
As luck would have it…
This trifecta was like a Close Encounters of the Third Kind all over again! The die had been cast and like Francisco de Orellana, Dan set sail to discover the great mysteries of the Amazon (some how he missed the hoards of gold and cinnamon and of encounters with tribes led by women resembling the Amazons of Greek mythology – but he’s still looking).
Many people think Dan is one of the top marketers on the planet (ie: earth). There is even a book sold on Amazon where the author tries to validate this “unearthly” claim: Internet Prophets (full disclosure, that is an affiliate link and all the proceeds go to the “Save a Moon Pie Association”). Some people point to the $300 million dollar mega-hit movie/book “The Secret” (save your money – just because it’s linked does not mean you should buy it) that Dan along with a little help from Oprah helped launch some years ago.
Others point to all of the training programs and marketing tools Dan has created – yes, literally hundreds of thousands have learned marketing from Dan and over 20,000 Amazon sellers have attended his coaching programs. Dan has even somehow bamboozled Amazon itself (bamboozled?) to send him clients.
When asked how Dan became so skilled at marketing, copywriting, making videos, photoshop, programming, design, and music… his answer is mind-blowing:
But don’t be fooled! Every day your inbox is filled with very convincing opportunities, wealth building claims, marketing loopholes of the rich & infamous, and irresistible emails from Nigeria. How can you be sure of anything anymore. How can you take your yourself, your product, or your business to the top ranks of success in the shark filled waters of the internet? That’s a great question!
Instead… call Dan Hollings.
Well better yet, just Skype or email Dan, he rarely answers his phone anyways.
