MEET David

David has the ability to turn even the most discerning individuals into raving fans. His clients have routinely praised his results oriented coaching style as original, dynamic, genuine and funny. Whether it’s from his days as a college student selling books door-to-door, to his time motivating his fitness clients to get healthy, or to training professionals in skills like Speed Reading or Memory Training. David’s passionate approach to life and relationships allows him to connect with his clients in powerful ways to get maximum results. He strives to live his life by the motto shared by one of his mentors, Zig Ziglar: “You can have everything you want out of life if you help enough other people get what they want.” Although he may not possess superpowers, you can still call David a superhero. His face is the model on which several comic book characters are based, such as Superman and Bruce Wayne. And, if comic books aren't your thing, catch David Shoup on reruns of One Life to Live and All My Children.

You can have everything you want out of life if you help enough other people get what they want
