Peter Weller
Born in Denver, Colorado in October 1974 around 11:30am, Peter Weller demonstrated at a very young age that he thought differently than others. His mother tells a story of him telling his teachers, he wasn't going to do it again, he already learned that I want something new and challenging. Up until recently, Peter has always struggled to fit in, an awkward boy turned into an awkward Man always asking questions from curiosity and what society would say is borderline has always shown his true heart and character. 

So where does he fit in? As a business coach, he will always ask you the questions that cause you to think. He believes Albert Einstein was right when he said— 'We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them' One of his favorite questions is 'Are there padlocks on the doors?' Well, it's not over yet, let me come take a look and see if we can figure a way out. His heart is genuine, his attitude is contagious, his mindset is abundance and willingness to listen set him apart in the world of Business Coaching.

Gary LaRue
After joining Master Networks as a member and becoming a Success Coach, I was excited to become a Regional Entrepreneurial Partner. In becoming a member, I saw first hand the power of what Master Networks can offer, and how it helped grow our primary business, D&G Credit into a national company! The education that is offered is truly world class, and I am excited to share the power of Master Networks in the hopes that it can do for others what it has done for us!
