I have been in marketing for 20 years and like every industry there are the “Stars” people that are leaders in their field. Doberman Dan is one of those leaders.

Doberman Dan (he will explain that name) has been a serial entrepreneur for over 30 years. He is a best selling author and A-list copywriter, a gun for hire in the world of sales copy.

He is also a professional musician and composer, and his writing success allows him the time to pursue that passion.

There is a story and a journey here, The idea of a music career started at age seven. However, coming from a poor family and low self-esteem background, goals and planning was not in the mindset.

In his early years, he worked without direction. While the dream was to be a professional musician, the reality was to earn a living. You will hear how he joined the Dayton Police Department; how he explored multi-level marketing and went on for nine years or serial business failure.

He ultimately discovered his success in writing for the Bodybuilding world, and this saw him leave the police departments and become a writer.

In this interview there are revelations. We discuss aspects of his journey that have never been publicly explored.

Our conversation is a business interview, but it is also a discussion about life and finding meaning.  At 40 minutes I came to my last question and we completed the interview.  However, when a guest interview is over there are practical issues to discuss. I am so glad that we were still recording because the conversation that followed went to a new level and Dan gave me permission to include in the publishing.
