Smith of Top Third Marketing was born, raised, and worked on a farm in Will County, Ill. He has a degree in Agriculture Business and was a 20-plus-year veteran trader of the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Working under the direction of world-renowned commodity legend Richard Dennis as a discretionary broker and trader for the first half of his career, Dan experienced firsthand how the great ones trade. Dan is extremely well-versed in many currency and equity markets and is also a registered investment adviser for an independent firm in Illinois.
"I think people learn best in an atmosphere of fun," says Risberg, "so my goal is to be 'hilariously informative.'" Greg is a warm, funny motivational speaker who has addressed over 500,000 people in 48 states, as well as Canada, Great Britain and Australia with his "humor with a message" programs. He helps people learn useful ideas for handling stress better, communicating better, and finding more balance in their lives.
"I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be 'happy.' I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all, to matter; to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all."
