What is success to you?

David CharlestonSuccess is defined differently between people. Join us for this engaging presentation from former teacher and current entrepreneur David Charleston.  David will walk through five areas it takes to successfully accomplish any business goal. You'll love the life stories and practical application to your current situation- no matter if you're an owner, employee, or aspiring entrepreneur.

After graduating from college with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and Masters in counseling, David first began his career in the National Guard.  He went on to become a well liked and influential high school teacher and basketball coach.  All of these experiences helped shape the necessary skills and talents he needed to effectively start and operate a successful fitness and educational facility- The Orange Planet (TOP) Athletic Club located in Pleasant HIll, IA. 

David also serves as a director of Hope2Offer, a non-profit student and family services ministry, and Promise Academy, a 6-12 grade school which blends online and entrepreneurial education. As part of Hope2Offer, he was former host of a weekly radio program entitled Unmasked; a 30-minute program with special guests discussing a wide range of topics. Upon the show ending, David began a blog under the name Unmasked with David Charleston.
