Prior to X42 Ventures John worked with a multi-billion wholesale distributor of precious metals building a platform that grew to 75% of transactions in just four years. Building businesses at the intersection of business and technology is where John has excelled at creating the most business value. In 2012, John created a client acquisition strategy for services companies called Connect for Life (www.connectforlife.com). This methodology, supported by a soon to be published book of the same name and software called TouchPoints, assists technical individuals in building their personal brands in the marketplace. In 2003, John co-founded Pariveda Solutions, and in just 9 years, grew the company to 300 consultants in 10 offices without a direct sales force leveraging his Networking for Life methodology. John sold his interest and left Pariveda in 2012.
