what people say about david

  • Since knowing David, a few words pop into mind immediately. Authentic, Passionate, and Leader! When I had the opportunity to see him speak, it was evident that he was truly excited and passionate about helping others succeed and sharing his expertise. His energy is contagious on his weekly radio show "Auto Dealer Live." If you haven't had the opportunity to work with or meet David yet, then you should!
