Eben Pagan – Opportunity – How To Find, Create And Thrive From Opportunities In Your Life
Eben Pagan is an American entrepreneur, author, and speaker known for his expertise on business management, growth and personal development, particularly through internet marketing.
Back in the 2000s he discovered this business almost by accident, with his massively successful Double Your Dating ebook (which I bought) using the pen name David DeAngelo.
As this business grew he started teaching people in the information marketing businesses, how to build online products.
Today he travels the world six months a year, runs all of his businesses virtually (with no office), and have been chosen by Tony Robbins as one of his “New Money Masters.”
