just so happened that she was already a demonstrator with a
large, home-based stamping company.
Thanks to his extensive experience with direct-sales
and home-based businesses, John was able to help her put
together a plan of action to turn her love of stamping into
a thriving business.
As she became more successful, she began spreading
the word to her colleagues.
As a result, John began working with more and more
people, both one-on-one and in groups, who wanted to make
stamping their business. Because coaching is done over the phone, John is able to work
with stamping professionals nationwide.
As a way to reach an even wider audience, John
wrote and self-published the book, “Stamping Is My
Business!,” in 2003.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Currently, the majority of
John’s clients are stamping professionals.
In addition to one-on-one and group Coaching over the
phone, John also travels around the country to conduct
informative and motivational workshops and seminars and to
meet them face-to-face.
