Anthony left GE Capital ITS and then returned after working with Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) as a project engineer helping to design and support DECs’ “Video-On-Demand” (VOD) solution at the VOD trail for US West TeleChoice in Omaha.
Early in Anthony’s career, he co-founded and severed as president for D-TECH Security Systems. Anthony found D-TECH with a seed capital investment from Irvin Joel then President of Hat Brands, Inc. and the Stetson Hat Company. D-TECH specialized in security, telephony and networking products for residential and commercial customers.
Anthony began his technology career with Compu-Add Corporation as a corporate account manager and then severed as Sales Manager. Compu-Add was a national clone manufacture and marketed computer products against IBM in the early 1990’s.
Anthony married his High School sweetheart Cheryl in 1997. They have three children in addition to Anthony’s older son from a previous marriage. Once he had a family of his own, Anthony was driven to provide a stable income to support them.
While continuing to be successful in the corporate world, he decided to try to figure out a way to earn an ongoing residual income that he could pass down to his children.
Anthony first tried building a residual income in 1986 at the age of 19 with one of the world’s largest direct marketing businesses. Unsuccessful, he tried again in 1994 with the same company and was mildly successful while being mentored by a wonderful husband and wife team who taught him as much about becoming a good husband and father as being an honest businessman. Anthony is still associated with that business today.
Anthony spent the next few years focused on his corporate job and the then booming High-speed Internet Broadband business. He went on to build a multi-million-dollar Broadband integration business for a large systems integration company in Atlanta.
Anthony then worked with venture capitalists and private equity firms to raise over $9MM in support of an employee buyout of the division Anthony and his team had built. But as fate would have it the “dot-com bubble” would burst in March of 2001 and the $9MM in VC funding along with more than $3.76MM in annual sales would all but disappear. Anthony was forced to find gainful employment for himself and his team in an all but hysterical technology marketplace.
Anthony survived and even thrived during the next few years. Corporations were overvalued and going under and companies that did survive like Cisco Systems saw their stock drop by as much as 86%. Anthony with his tenacity for self-survival was able to succeed during the chaos of the coming years.
Not wanting to give up on his dream of building a monthly residual income Anthony would try again to build several more network marketing companies with only marginal success.
Success Creating and Promoting his own Products
Anthony did not see any real success until he created his websites and promoted his products. Anthony, speaking of the first launch of one of his products, said “Watching my PayPal account go up and up was like playing the slot machines in Vegas except every spin was a winner.”
This success cemented Anthony’s longstanding belief that you could indeed build a successful business on the Internet part-time. Anthony went on to create several more products, video training programs, a podcast and wrote several books that he published on Amazon’s Kindle store.
Anthony finally saw success in his part-time businesses. That success, however, did come with an unexpected need to continuously support the customers of those products at all hours of the day and night. Additionally, he learned that with each new successful product that he would immediately be dealing with hackers, spammers, and copycats stealing his products and or promoting them as their own.
Meanwhile, the Broadband market was beginning to slow, and some of Anthony’s key customers either merged, were bought out or closed down.
Out of necessity, Anthony began applying his Internet Marketing techniques to his Corporate Sales efforts with huge success. Anthony said, “My Corporate Colleagues and Executive Board considered my radical marketing techniques as almost Voodoo.” They did not understand why it worked they just knew it did and praised Anthony for thinking outside of the box, Anthony then responded: “What Box?”.
