I would be happy to volunteer my time in assisting you with getting your network set up. I would be more than happy to help with due diligence, territory coordination, customer sign up, and legal ( I am not an attorney, however, I have reviewed many contracts, etc). I will also check with our group (we have several attorneys) and see if any want to volunteer.
I have a strong talent for being able to see a clear path to success and the unique ability to bring disparate groups and individuals together!
Free Energy Background: I have followed the free energy field since the early 1990s. In 2001 I invented a variation of the Joule Thief circuit which would go COP 2+ at times. I spent about a year trying to get funding to study, understand, and develop the effect. I did presentations to VC firms and angel investors. Got pretty far with some but always ran into the skeptical EE who said it wasnt possible..even with a mountain of data and watching it work. I eventually raised enough capital to file for a provisional patent. Got busy with trying to earn a living and have continue to follow the free energy field. Realized others were a lot further along then I was and decided not to pursue it, but rather help where I could.
Business Background: Spent early working years in the IT field. Worked my way up from a programmer to an executive with a major networking company. Developed a product which allowed media rights holders (NFL, PGA Tour, NBA) to digital store, search, edit, etc video based on video content or search terms. Did major presentations for NFL, PGA Tour, NBA, Real Networks, BBC. Negotiated very large software deals.
Entrepreneurship: In 2002, purchased a small chain of retail candy stores (5) and grew them into a chain of 14 retail stores in 4 states. Business was grossing $4M when sold in 2007. In 2007, started a homecare company, which I still own and operate, specializing in assisting the elderly. Business is very successful and extremely rewarding. Have done every task imaginable in small business. I handle all my own contract negotiations, accounting, and taxes.
Education: BS in Mathematics from the University of Oklahoma, 85% of my MSEE from Oklahoma State University, numerous business, leadership, contracts, and negotiations courses.
