Dealer Dan, pictured here with WWE Superstar Mick Foley, has been in internet marketing since 1996. He likes hugs, long walks on the beach, and making money while wearing his jammy jams. For more information, you can read all about Dealer Dan.

This is my blog, where I usually write in a more light hearted tone. I have regular featured articles here like "T_IM" where instead of Thanking God It's Monday, I thank whatever is motivating me that week and we do a Monday motivational post!

I'll also write other articles here which I feel are a more "casual" style of writing as opposed to professional. However you'll find a lot of informative tidbits within these!
