Having gone from rags to riches to rags to riches, all before celebrating his 50th birthday, Dave Meltzer, who is also known as the entrepreneur’s entrepreneur, has enjoyed careers spanning technology, sports marketing, media and entertainment, and publishing.
After losing it all in 2008, Dave determined that the missing ingredient in his prior success was gratitude.
Today, as the CEO of Sports 1 Marketing, the firm he co-founded with Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon, his weekly all-hands staff meetings focus on four key traits: empathy, accountability, effective communication, and gratitude.
In his first best-seller, Connected To Goodness, 2014, Dave reveals his proven principles for success that will bring his readers the same peace and balance he now enjoys in both business and in life.
His newest release, Compassionate Capitalism: A Journey to the Soul of Business, in 2016, which he co-authored with Blaine Bartlett, delves into the flaws of traditional capitalism. Not only do the authors point out the flaws and successes of the world’s main economic driver, they suggest a new way to conduct business. Compassionate Capitalism will change the way you look at business, so the things you look at change!
