Everybody thinks that an innovator is the same thing as an entrepreneur when nothing could be farther from the truth. Innovation is making your inspiration into reality. Entrepreneurship is taking an innovation and effectively monetizing it. In order to make the distinction between the two, Dave Meltzer shared the lessons and efficiencies he learned as an entrepreneur from his successful investments to the “dummy tax” he’s paid through making mistakes. Dave inspired innovators and entrepreneurs alike by sharing his journey through business. Dave is the CEO of Sports 1 Marketing, a Forbes “Top 10 Keynote Speaker”, award-winning humanitarian, and a two-time national best-selling author, with 25 years of experience as an entrepreneur and executive in the legal, technology, sports, and entertainment fields. With expertise across many industry verticals, he is uniquely positioned as a world-renowned thought leader, business strategist and leading humanitarian.

Dave has created a platform that allows him to communicate with everyone from college students to c-suite executives by using his principles for business and life: gratitude, empathy, accountability, and effective communication. Utilizing these four principles every day allows Dave to live by his mission, “make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun.”
