Hi! I’m Eric David Greenspan. I’m a dad and an entrepreneur. I spend a lot of my time at the keyboard and in the kitchen. I have over 10,000 hours at each.
In my early years, I could be found on the municipal golf course in Palm Springs, California picking from plentiful lemon trees and selling lemonade on the second hole. Little did I know that this would be the start of my entrepreneurial career. I have spent my entire adult lifetime building companies. My greatest skill is identifying unique marketing opportunities and driving customer acquisition. My latest company accumulated over 50,000 customers and most importantly, over 44,000 unique customer testimonials.
I’m currently building a new company. You can learn more about it here.
