About Me

Dave Vanz
I moved to Florida at the beginning of the second quarter of 2010. I come from Michigan where I made my mark as the first person to launch a social network in the state of Michigan. I've attached myself to projects over the years and less to my name, but after moving to FL, I've decided to launch my personal site - - and begin growing my network here in Central Florida. I found this community through a friend who sent a link. I'm currently looking for companies interested in the benefits of social media and would like someone to manage it, that knows what they're doing. I'm also in the process of launching an online training university for Entrepreneurs. I've partnered with some pretty incredible people to begin seeing this lift off the ground and look forward to sharing Phlier University with people who have Big Ideas and want to make them a reality. I have a passion for start ups and fun atmospheres. I like takings risks and over the years have been learning which ones to jump all into if I want a smile on my face at the end.
