CommissionCrowd's three Founders - Laura McGregor, Ryan Mattock and Alistair Robinson - decided that it was time to move the commission based sales industry out of the dark ages and set out on a challenging mission to save company Principals and independent sales agents time, resources, stress and money by building simple, awesome software dedicated entirely the commission-only sales industry.

Previously, CommissionCrowd's Founders had owned and run the UK branch of a large U.S. based digital Marketing company. Their first interaction with commission only sales agents began when they decided it was time to extend their company's reach in the Marketplace by partnering with self-employed sales agents. That's where the problems started: Where do you start looking for experienced self-employed sales agents, who were these people, did they exist and if so, what did they expect from a company before agreeing to work with them?

It took a few years of trial and error to start growing their team and they lost many wonderful sales agents along the way. It was simply too difficult to find great sales partners and became too time consuming to effectively manage their relationships with their independent sales team. Their sales reps also felt the strain of manually managing a remote working partnership and as a result of too much of their time being taken away from the ability to concentrate on selling, they began to leave. They knew there must be a better way.

You see, sometimes you have to be a part of the problem in order to become a part of the solution. The team knew that they had the resources and experience to set out to create something that would not only solve the problem for both companies and independent sales agents, but to go beyond that and create a revolutionary online service that would change the face of commission-only sales forever.

David Hooper is an author, radio host, and marketing expert who works

with entrepreneurs and brands to build their authority and influence

to increase sales and more effectively spread their messages.

The story starts a few years ago…

I released a book called Six-Figure Musician – How to Sell More Music, Get More People to Your Shows, and Make More Money in the Music Business. As the title suggests, it was written for musicians and the people who work with them — managers, record labels, etc.

I was entrenched in the music business, over the years working with hundreds of acts, from bands just getting started to legendary artists you’ve heard and probably own music by. I’ve seen all aspects of how “celebrity” is created and maintained, from street and media promotion, to live event production, to the behind-the-scenes of film and television.

But after 20 years in the trenches, I was done. I wanted new challenges.

And that’s how I got here.

The same techniques I’ve used to help musicians to grow their fanbases, spread their music, and make money in the music business will work to help authors, bloggers, and podcasters grow their audiences, spread their work, and make money in their businesses.

The music business, more than any other industry, has been changed by technology and how entertainment is now consumed. We were the “pioneers” who had to figure out how to work with illegal downloads, changing distribution methods, and how to get attention for our work in a crowded marketplace of more entertainment choices than ever.

And we did.

As a creative professional, it’s easy to get lost in the crowd. If you need help standing out (and making money while doing it), you’re in the right place.

Geoff’s Story

In late 2000, I suffered from a bout of viral meningitis which was the start of my journey through my own hell, I recovered but within a year I was struck again, this triggered a series of severe stress related conditions that caused me to be bed bound for a year sleeping almost 20 hours a day, followed by a further 4 of being housebound. I struggled with severe depression, anxiety, guilt and many other debilitating mental and physical conditions including severe lethargy, chronic migraines, racking muscular pain, poor concentration and memory.

2006 my life was getting to much for me so I left the house with every intention of ending my life. It was during this dark time that something amazing happened, I heard my eldest sons voice telling me to stop. It was at that moment something triggered a determination that I had never felt before and that was to learn everything I could to understand what makes people tick, what takes them from a state of despair or severe stress to making massive positive changes in their lives.

That question became my mission

Howdy! My name is Frank Salas , I go by the name the “Talented Mr. Salas” . I have been a Serial Entrepreneur since the age of 20 , I have never had a full time job, never gone to a company picnic , nor have I had to play the office politics game. I give myself raises, go on vacation when I want to ; for however long I want to. I have a wheelhouse of companies that I run with the support of an army of virtual assistants all based in the Philippines , where $1 USD = ~$50 Filipino Pesos . I do not hire people in India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan or India — my staff is 100% Filipino and I am the only American on my virtual team. I have aligned myself with the Philippines because of their English skills, growing infrastructure , hospitality and hard work ethic. If you make $30,000 USD or more, you are in the top 1% of wealth in the world and can leverage your currency to scale your business. I help entrepreneurs and businesses scale quickly , service clients at a superior level by focusing time and manpower on each individual client, and maximize their profits by utilizing a global workforce that requires a lower living wage. Henry Ford had the factory worker — I have the Filipino Virtual Workforce.

I have close ties to several top universities in the Philippines where I source young , fresh talent who grew up on Super Mario , Macs and PC’s , Smart Phones, Xbox and Playstation, watch American television shows and movies , Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (and more!) and know all the same brands that most of Western countries have.

Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies have been outsourcing to the Philippines since the 1960s — if it’s good enough for AT&T… it’s good enough for you! I look forward to serving you and your business.

Hey there, I’m Torie Robinson and I work with professionals to enable them to unleash their full potential, achieve their goals and fulfil their ambitions.

I will help you to make a career change / to get promoted and just make the most out of your career. Maybe you are bored. Hate your boss. Fed up of the company/industry. Being made redundant.

Let’s identify what your goals are and enable to you get there.

Hey there, I’m Torie Robinson and I work with professionals to enable them to unleash their full potential, achieve their goals and fulfil their ambitions.

I will help you to make a career change / to get promoted and just make the most out of your career. Maybe you are bored. Hate your boss. Fed up of the company/industry. Being made redundant.

Let’s identify what your goals are and enable to you get there.

Video Player
I specialise in the Finance sector and work with clients on all levels of an organisation – from MDs, Partners, and Lawyers, to PAs and IT consultants. If you’re ready to make a change, I’m ready to work with you.

Why I do Career Consulting

People often ask me why I do what I do, and the simple answer is to make a positive difference to people’s lives. Through my services, I am able to help people unleash their full potential and give them the confidence they need to take the steps they need to enhance their career, reach their goals, and maintain a healthy work-life balance.

So many of us will reach a point in our careers where we become lost and uncertain – but we know we need a change. We want to take that next step, but are unsure of the direction. Should we pursue our existing career path or try something completely new? If you don’t know where you want to go, how can you possibly know how you’re going to get “there”?

Helping my clients to define what they really want from their careers, clearly define their goals and then helping them to achieve these is what drives me. I am passionate about what I do and for me, it’s so much more than a job – I genuinely care about my clients’ success and seeing them achieve this is what gives me career fulfillment.

How I became a Career Consultant

I haven’t always been a Career Consultant. I’ve gained over 7 years’ experience in Finance, Banking, Management, HR and Recruitment, whilst sometimes working in roles that I didn’t enjoy, that were not fulfilling and which put me under immense and intolerable pressure.

I’d been promoted and seconded overseas – I thought that this was going to be my career dream, but for many reasons, it left me unhappy and unchallenged. This wasn’t where I wanted to be – but where did I want to be? I felt lost.

Taking some time off, I used my skills and experience to help some of my friends to get high flying jobs in London; providing recruitment advice, overhauling their CVs and LinkedIn profiles, and preparing them for interviews. And it worked. I realised that this was the next step I had been looking for– to help other professionals find and secure the jobs that they wanted-rather than the jobs they felt they needed.

So here I am – using my knowledge, experience and insight to help others avoid the career-based misery that I endured. And I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else!

In 2008, Brian followed a hunch and left his family’s golf center business, stepping into the unknown. Ever since, inspiration has followed.

Letting intuition be his guide, he began to step out of his comfort zone and unexpected paths and talents started to emerge such as writing, acting, and crafting stories. Tapping into this emerging creativity, Brian began his own hero’s journey of self-realization and growth, which continues to influence his empowering and inspiring books, films, and presentations.


Award-Winning Author

Brian is the award-winning author of Brian’s List – 26 1/2 Easy To Use Ideas on How to Live A Fun, Balanced, and Healthy Life! This book won a Next Generation Indie Book Award in the Self-Help category.

He also wrote Finding Your Voice, which was an award-winning Finalist in both the USA Book News and the Indie Excellence Book Awards.

His first children’s book, Steve The Alien, will be released on November 1st, 2016.


Inspirational Speaker

Brian is an inspiring TEDx motivational speaker whose passion for helping others comes out in his empowering and heartfelt message. His talks focus on trusting intuition, stepping out of our comfort zones, and achieving success.

Brian walks his talk and happily shares his journey and personal stories in hopes of authentically inspiring others. Whether it’s a personalized talk, presentation, discussion of his work, or a workshop, Brian’s goal is to be of service, facilitate growth and share his experiences. Learn more at his Speaker page. Book Brian today!



In addition to writing, speaking, and acting, Brian enjoys creating his own projects that carry inspiring, thought-provoking, and heartfelt messages. His most recent project was the short film Searching for Happiness, which can be watched on this website as well as YouTube. The story focuses on an unhappy man, alone and unloved, who struggles to find meaning in his black and white reality. Over the course of a day, he learns that it is through kindness and our connection to others that we find true happiness.

In 2011, Brian created the award-winning Guitar Man, a movie project that he wrote, produced, and acted in that was filmed in downtown Reno, Nevada. Brian created the movie with the idea of sharing the messages that we all have a lot in common, and that our true gifts reside within ourselves. Guitar Man was well received. It was accepted to 11 movie festivals and was a winner at the Love Unlimited Film and Art Festival.


Reawaken Media

Brian loves to create and share inspiring, positive, and thought-provoking media and recently founded Reawaken Media with this in mind. He will be releasing all of his work under the Reawaken Media brand and establish it as a name to trust in books, film, and video.

Reawaken Media’s mission is to create conscious, inspiring, and thought-provoking content designed to powerfully wake the world up through the written, visual, and spoken word.



In addition to acting in his own productions, Brian has been in numerous TV shows, feature films, and commercials. Brian can be seen this winter in the brand new TV series Sangra Negra starring Erik Estrada, Eric Roberts and Anthony McKay. Brian also had the pleasure of being in Prince EA’s inspiring video I Am Not Black, You Are Not White which has garnered over 100 million views worldwide.




After a knee injury sidelined him in college, Brian used the rehabilitation process to strengthen his body and set a goal to race in a mini-triathlon when his knee healed. After finishing that first race in 1987, Brian was hooked, and he continued to race periodically over the course of the next 20 years. He finished over 50 triathlons including 4 Ironman distance races (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run). A couple of Brian’s favorite races were Ironman Canada in 1989 (his first Ironman) and the 2005 Vineman Ironman race (where his son Michael was able to run across the finish line with him).



Brian wasn’t satisfied with just riding his bike to school as a kid…he had to take it to a whole different level and ride it across the United States! Brian accomplished a life-long goal of riding his bicycle across America when he joined a group of fellow philanthropic bicyclists to raise money for charity and rode from Seattle to Washington D.C. in 1996. The trip was one of the highlights of Brian’s life. Brian has written stories about some of his triathlon and cycling experiences in his blogs and book Finding Your Voice.


Coming Soon

Brian is currently writing an untitled memoir, two scripts with his screenwriting partner Susannah Rose Woods, and his second children’s book. He is also co-producing the upcoming documentary EGO – Edging God Out produced by Inner Motion Films. Brian loves to collaborate with creative and like-minded people. Feel free to contact Brian if you would like to discuss your project.

He started teaching assisted technology in 2011, but when his mother passed away unexpectedly that year he returned home to Montana to be with his family. He started looking for ways to make money online and go onto Craigslist, where he found a Cost Per Action (CPA) opportunity, which paid him to get leads for companies such as Netflix and Audible. He enjoyed it, but felt there was something missing.

In 2014, he started building the foundation of his own brand, and built a tightknit community of interactive followers. This evolved into him coaching others.
