Nick Ponte

A graduate of the University of Adversity (with Honors)!

Born and raised on Maui, Nick was employed as an automobile mechanic before founding his own local marketing agency. Nick naturally wrestled with the change from tradesman to marketer (not an easy transition) but, like Tom, he wouldn't give up.

Through years of commitment, Nick has grown to be a highly skilled web developer and marketing expert with a specialized skill-sets in a variety of fields. He has developed many high-traffic, high-quality websites that incorporate the best practices for today's digital marketing.

Today, Nick eagerly shares his experience and knowledge by helping others in cultivating their business.

Tom Gaddis

Tom Gaddis

Attended the School of Hard Knocks.

A former restaurant manager in Oklahoma, Tom always wanted to be self-employed and free from the butt-smooching of the corporate world. He wanted success bad enough that he picked up his family, including two small children and moved to beautiful Maui, Hawaii.

Starting from zero, Tom embarked on building a local marketing consulting business. And promptly fell on his face! It seems Hawaiians were lovely people, until you tried to sell them something! But he persevered and learned from his mistakes.

Today hes arguably one of the most successful in his niche and expecting to grow over 100% this year alone.

"I have been following Nick & Tom's training step by step. Since I have joined a month ago, I have closed $3780 worth of residual client services. I cant say enough good things about NIck, Tom, & the support in these groups of Offline Sharks & the Shark Alliance. Thank you all very much.
