David Meltzer: Living an Attitude of Gratitude
7 days ago
My guest today is Dave Meltzer, entrepreneur, speaker, author, and CEO of Sports 1 Marketing. His personal objective in life is to “make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun.” After spending only a few minutes in his company, it is apparent that having “lots of fun” is not difficult for Dave. Dynamic and engaging, Dave was told as a child that he could sell ice to an Eskimo, and his career path indicates that he might have succeeded had he ever been put in that situation. His first job out of law school was selling legal research online for West Publishing, a position intended for individuals with at least four years of litigation experience. Years later, he was made the CEO of Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment, the world’s most notable sports agency, only 48 hours after meeting Leigh Steinberg himself. But while success appears to come naturally to Dave, he admits that his priorities became skewed over time, resulting in financial ruin and an emotional plea from his wife for him to look at who he was and what he wanted to become before he lost his family as well. This moment created a paradigm shift for Dave, leading him to focus on others and how he could best serve their needs instead of his own. Join Dave and I as we discuss happiness, mentors, and how to pursue your potential through an attitude of gratitude. Show Notes & Links: https://whitneyjohnson.com/david-meltzer
