Toronto native Dan Catto got his start in the network marketing industry in the spring of 1988. Starting with his first networking marketing business, Dan was able to earn monthly what he used to earn annually in his best years in the corporate world. While working for a company that marketed personal care and nutrition products, Dan developed a new group of more than 50,000 distributors in a little over 5 years. The founders of NHT Global then approached Dan with a unique business model that would be launched as a sister company to the one he was currently leading. For the past eight years, Dan has developed a team of over 700,000 distributors around the world. There are now more than 30 millionaires within the NHT Global group, plus nine that have gone over $100,000 a week in income. The opportunity put Dan into million dollar homes in two countries, but he says his greatest reward is the opportunity to give back and the countless lives that he has been able to help over his nearly 20 years in the industry. In the last 20 years, Dan has spoken to and trained over a million people in over 50 countries and has helped launch and develop markets throughout much of the world.
