Dan Daragan, Co-Founder and CEO of My Branding System
Dan has over 30 years of experience in business management, brand marketing, sales/training, and capital investments. He was born in Charleston, West Virginia, raised in New York City, and later moved to South Florida where he attended an all-boys prep school and Miami’s Biscayne College. He currently lives in Florida with his wife and children. Dan’s entrepreneurial drive and business savvy were shaped by the loss of his father during his college years and his decision to marry and start a family of his own shortly thereafter. Dan cut his teeth in business in the hospitality industry by managing franchises, training leaders/teams and turning profits for the McDonalds Corporation. This experience led to the purchase of his first restaurant at age 24. Dan and his wife successfully owned and operated the London Ben’s Fish & Chips restaurant chain in Florida, Maine and Mexico for 17 years. Dan then transferred his management and marketing skills to the real estate industry, and was immediately named Rookie-of-the-year by the Coldwell Banker Real Estate. As a licensed realtor in the state of Florida, Dan sold millions of dollars in residential and commercial real estate properties for Coldwell Banker, Remax, and The Keyes Company, for a combined 17 years. Dan then advanced from broker to independent investor and advisor and still works as a consultant to developers in South Florida.
Dan saw the writing on the wall within the real estate industry and before the bubble burst, he began exploring and creating a powerful online presence and business through affiliate and direct sales. In just two years time, Dan developed a team of 25,000 entrepreneurs with another network marketing company and generated millions in net worth for his team . Dan’s foresight has helped him recognize the power of digital and social media in outpost marketing. Despite the popularity of social networking, Dan believes people still do not know how these tools can help build business success. It is for these entrepreneurs that MBS created the My Branding SYSTEM. Through his proven leadership and marketing expertise, Dan is driving MBS toward becoming a successful corporate brand and helping thousands of individuals generate the incomes they always dreamed of.
