We were “all in” on a very innovative Beacon based, Proximity Marketing System, until Google “nixed” Nearby from Android.

We hired local talent form the Colleges in Surigao City, some of which ended up working with us for more than 10 years. We did do some very interesting telephony automation for one of our clients, which ended up being the starting point for more focused automation and innovation with Automated Marketing System.

AUGUST 2001 — MARCH 2007


Online Retail - Portland, Oregon / Las Vegas, Nevada

Owner / Operator – Enrichment Unlimited was one of the largest disturbers of Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad, Poor Dad educational material, and his Cashflow 101, 202 and Cashflow for Kids board games. We also sold the full Nightingale-Conant and Anthony Robbins product lines. This all went well when the dominant media was either Cassettes or CDs, but sales started to plummet when downloadable media took over. In addition, Robert Kiyosaki’s organization decided to handle all sales and distribution themselves, and discontinued their resale distributor’s program. This lead me back into the tech world, and developing websites for people I knew.
