Who Is David DeMarco?
Born in Philly, I was raised in a relatively small, New Jersey suburban town of Woodbury Heights. I move to Pennsylvania for 20 years, meet my wife, and now we’re back in New Jersey, in the house I grew up in for a short while, which is pretty cool.
After discovering my passion for video while in high school, and upon graduating from college with a degree in television production, I set out to conquer the world. First were the years of building a successful deejay entertainment company that was voted the best in South Jersey 3 years in a row. Then it was time to turn my attention to video production, and begin my career, in earnest, in broadcast television.
After working for myself for several years, I join a NBC Sports affiliate network in Philly in 2000 and six years later, in 2006, won my first two Emmy Awards, followed by winning my third Emmy in 2009. And most recently was recognize, along with the rest of the network’s crew, for contributing to the network winning the coveted Station Excellence Emmy Award.
Now, winning those Emmys was super cool, but there was only one problem: I was working in the corporate world. If you have a job, you know what I’m talking about, right? If you’re sick and tired of the lack of freedom in your life and living in the rat race, then we have a lot in common. I’m pretty sure you feel exactly how I feel…
- You hate driving in crazy long rush hour traffic to and from work… fun times right?
- You’re really sick and tired of your 9 to 5 (or later) job and 40 hour+ work week…
- You have to cram in everything you want to do on the weekends, like food shopping with the masses, house work, etc. And if you have kids… umm, yea…
- You’re tired of having way more month left than money in your bank account (and pay check) with no spare cash (or freedom) to do the cool, fun things in life you really want to do…
- You want to leave a legacy for your family, for your kids, and secure your family’s financial future…
- You want to live life on your own terms, not your boss’s…
These were my feelings back in 2006. I had had enough and was sick of the corporate world… of being told when to take vacation… of not having enough time with my wife and family… of not having enough money… of not being able to do all those things on my bucket list. Maybe right now you feel the same way, knowing it is time for a change.
So, while still working at the TV network, I took Action and did two things. First was my investment in real estate training, and taking the plunge into the Philly real estate market. Unfortunately, we got in just before the bottom fell out in 2008 and that put us in a pretty bad financial mess (almost $300,000 in debt). In fact, that was a start of a series of “disasters” that occurred from 2007 to 2012 that left my self confidence in shambles and my self-worth took a dive dive. I still had my ‘job’, but my mind was left wondering what to do next.
The second thing, after starting to invest in real estate, was attending a network marketing presentation that I was invited to. That presentation made my excitement level go through the roof and, for the first time, I saw my freedom from the rat race.
Now, those series of ‘disasters’ happen during this time that made it very difficult to move forward with building a network marketing business. Things you may have experienced like deaths of loved ones, sick parents, trees falling on the house, a house flood, plus on-going debt from the 2008 real estate crash. But I never lost the vision I saw that day at that presentation.
During this time, I have connected with people and individuals that have had a massive positive impact in my life. I mentored with some of the most successful leaders in this industry and invested in myself and learn so much about online marketing. I have done video work for some of the biggest names in the industry and I’m well known online as the Emmy Dude. And we were able to pay off our entire debt and are now debt-free!
For me, the secret has been to never give up no matter what and to always take action. Even during to most difficult times when I couldn’t even build my business, I was still taking action by investing in myself, either by reading a book or watching a video. Plus, there was my vision which kept me from giving up.

What is the vision that you have for your life? That drives you? What is the person you want to be? To you wife or husband? To your kids? Those around you? I suggest you write it down and read it when you wake up in the morning and before you go to bed. Do that every day. And remember that each one of us has value to give to people that can change their lives. Yes, you have value. More than you think.
I’m still on my journey. After working with some top industry leaders with their video needs, I’m now building my own network marketing business and my own brand, teaching people how to create awesome, engaging videos that build their brand and their network marketing company, gets them more leads and makes them more sales.
I know you have a vision and I hope you too will take the journey in seeing it fulfilled. Believe in yourself. Know that there is greatness inside each and every person who reads these words and know that you CAN be great and be an inspiration to others no matter what. I believe in you.
I look forward to connecting with you, either here, on social media or at an event as well as helping you get to where you want to go.
