Daniel Stone


Since coming aboard with GKIC, Daniel says he is doing what he loves most: leveraging his experience to help other entrepreneurs, information marketers, and small businesses to become successful and achieve their life’s dreams and passions.

He grew up in an entrepreneurial household and, at a very young age, found himself working after school and summers at his dad’s insurance agency in Chicago. Thanks to that experience, Daniel has been attracted to the entrepreneurial spirit and mindset, following his dream and helping others to follow theirs.

For the last 30 years he has pursued that passion, working with startups across a wide variety of industries, and what a list it is: Running a family-owned Midas muffler franchise with his brother; working as a futures trader at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange; helping to launch a health services startup operating two brick and mortar massage therapy practices (The Ultimate Backrub); partnering in an information marketing business teaching ¬technical recruiting strategies to headhunters (Technology Explained); partnering in a manufacturing startup that made ultra-light aircraft called powered parachutes (AirSled); and, for the last 10 years, helping to start and grow an online IT Services company from zero to over 3 million dollars per year in recurring revenue (01.com, Inc.).

At 01.com, Daniel worked with the son of a Chicago direct marketing entrepreneur with a powerful family heritage in direct response – through this connection he uncovered the brilliant direct-response marketing strategies of GKIC. All Daniel can say is, “I wish I had found them 20 years earlier!”
