What Dave Thinks?

pressmicsI had this idea for a blog entry over at “Tex’s Quixtar Blog”; and I figure what’s good for Tex is good for Dave.

Consider this entry a press conference or an “open-line” talk show.

Is there something you want to know about Dave? An opinion?

Ask your question in the comments; and I’ll try to answer. It can be Quixtar or Amway related. MLM-related. Comedy. It can be about anything, but let’s keep the real personal stuff to a minimum–I can always choose to answer, “No Comment”.

press-cameraman-conference-public-media-press-camerasJust questions. And hold off on follow-ups. Let’s see how the first round plays out first.

Okay first question–that person in the second row…..

    Yessir Dave. No, over here in the third row. I had my hand up first!

    On the bottom, below your visitor counter it says Ventrioquist-ring. Are you a ventriloquist? Do you have any of your work posted anywhere? I’m kind of on a little ventiloquist kick my self, though it does take a little brain power to remember how to spell the silly title!

    I’ll sit down now. 🙂

  2. I’m sorry, I didn’t see you there.

    Yes, I’m a ventriloquist. Started at the age of 10. I was a pretty big deal with the local media growing up. I even published a book on ventriloquism when I was 16years old.

    Check out the Newsy Vents link in my side bar. That’s the guy that taught me ventriloquism. More about my ventriloquism and comedy on “Dave’s Space”.

    I’ve done a few posts about ventriloquism, they should be tagged. My dummy Skyler has his own blog.

    I have ten Dave!

    Rocket, Washington Post….

    1. What is your favorite drink?

    2. What is your favorite food?

    3. What is your favorite beer?

    4. Where’s the best place on earth you’ve ever been?

    5. Ever sky dive? Wanted To?

    6. steak or seafood?

    7. briefs or boxers?

    8. wrestling or UFC?

    9. Favorite restaurant?

    10. Favorite year of your life? Why?

    I may have more, but I just wanted to throw some stuff at you that would give me a better idea of what turns your crank.

    And I’m a bit hungry right now….

  4. Mr. Rocket, damn, this was a press conference not an Entertainment Tonight interview, but since you asked.

    Favorite drink–non-alcoholic–Cold, no ice, sweetened tea. Alcoholic–Beer

    Favorite food–grilled grouper

    Favorite beer–Budweiser, used to be Michelob

    Best place on earth I’ve been–I loved being in Prague, and any beach is great; but the most memorable trip was stopping at night on a train in the Sierra Nevadas.

    No skydiving for me…I’m afraid of falling/heights.

    Seafood over steak.

    Ummm, Question 7 is delicate, but my answer should cure that hunger you had, Rocket…the answer is neither. Lose your appetite?

    Old 60s wrestling, watching with my Dad.

    All-time favorite restaraunt is “Old Hickory” in my old hometown. A steak house. But so much more.

    Favorite year of my life? The cliche’ answer would be, it hasn’t happened yet–but so far it would have to be somewhere around age 18 or 19. Why? I was spreading my wings and taking some scary chances.

    And there wasn’t a single damn “No Comment” in the lot.

  5. Okay, next question…this person here.

  6. Joecool says:

    How do you currently feel about the quixtar opportunity and what do you think about dimends quitting quixtar taking their groups to a new MLM?

  7. JoeCool,

    I feel the Quixtar Opportunity is and will be in transition for probably another 2 years.

    It’s still viable, if built based on retailing and sponsoring responsibly.

    As far as diamonds leaving the business, I say good riddance to the lot that has left so far.

  8. Joecool says:

    Thanks Dave, good idea to post a blog thread like this.

  9. Dreamer says:


    How do you feel about the way some IBOs are pushing Perfect Water?

    Do you feel Quixtar could have stepped in earlier and stopped all the outlandish claims IBOs were making?

    Do you think Quixtar was at least partially responsible for having the tip test on the Perfect Water website?


  10. Dreamer,

    Personally, I believe that there are more credible products in the Quixtar/Amway line to sell. Perfect Water is not a product I believe in. I think it’s a “me too” product.

    Ultimately, Quixtar is ALWAYS responsible for the methods and claims made by its IBOs and should have researched and sanctioned any claims.
