Dan Gallo's Blog

I started my 1st company in January 1985, and other than selling a successor company and running it for a multi-billion dollar enterprise for ~2 years, I’ve been self-employed. I sold my last business, Mentor Communications Group, in 2004 and started The Allasso Group after I left in April 2006.

My primary focus is Business & Sales Strategy, Marketing Communications and Social Media program design and deployment.
