My Story

Things did not start off easy for Dan, but he now knows his misfortune was a blessing in disguise.

Toronto native Dan Catto got his start in the network marketing industry in the spring of 1988. After 10 years in the corporate world and two years in private business, Dan found his calling in the incredible world of network marketing.

The spring of 1988 was a difficult time in Dan’s life. He had just suffered through a corporate take-over, a bankruptcy, a divorce and was hospitalized for several months with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Forced to rely on government assistance, Dan had to move back in with his parents at 32 years of age. 

At what Dan refers to as the “lowest point in my life,” he knew he would have to start all over again. It was at this low time that Dan answered an ad about network marketing from a stranger in another country. The company was new to Canada and he was representing an industry Dan did not understand. Like many others, his first thought was that it was a scam. Dan now calls this initial feeling a blessing in disguise.

Dan Catto had nowhere else to go. He couldn’t afford to go back into business for himself, and he had lost all faith in the corporate world. So with a leap of faith and the help of his father as a co-signer, Dan borrowed a few thousand dollars and went to work.

What inspired Dan most was a young man he met in those early days that was earning, in a month, what the president of his former company was making in a year. The difference in the two that Dan noticed was the president of his former company was nearly 60 years old and even looked a lot older, while the young man in the network marketing company was 25 years old and living a lifestyle of which Dan had only dreamed. And, by no coincidence, it is the lifestyle that Dan lives today.

Dan’s early and ongoing success can be linked to several keys from the very start. First, was the desire to get out of where he was and to go where he had only dreamed. Second, was going to work and paying the price. Finally, being teachable was paramount because it was unlike any other vehicle in which Dan had been. Starting his business, not from a position of strength, but with a huge sense of urgency and fear of loss, Dan built a group of 10,000 distributors throughout North America and Europe in just 5 short years. He was able to earn monthly what he used to earn annually in his best years in the corporate world.

In January of 1993, Dan moved on from that company for personal reasons, and joined another network marketing company based out of Hong Kong involved with consumer electronics and high tech. In just three and a half years he was able to build a group of over 30,000 distributors around the world and earned nearly twice as much in a little over half the time as he did with the previous company.

In August of 1996, due to corporate mismanagement, that company filed for bankruptcy and Dan had to move on. His due diligence associated himself with a company out of Longmont, Colorado. It had been around for a little over three years and was marketing personal care and nutritional products. At the time it lacked leadership and a system in the field which Dan was able to bring. In a little over five years Dan developed a new group that grew to over 50,000 distributors.

Near the end of 2000 the founders of NHT Global came to Dan with a unique business model that would be launched as a sister company to the one he was currently leading. This new model was to be able to provide a product and or service, seamlessly, to everyone around the world, and pay the distributor residual income for life. It had never been done before. However, with 21st century advancements and cutting-edge technology, the revolutionary compensation plan, unique products, and above all their incredible business model, they could do it and they have!

In just over 15 years, Dan has developed a team of well over 1,000,000 distributors in over 50 countries around the world. Dan resides in the winter in his South Florida oceanfront home and the rest of the year at his home in Toronto Canada, as well as the family lake house in the summer months. Dan says his greatest reward is the countless lives that he has been able to help over the 29 years in the industry and the opportunity to give back and serve.

Since 1988, Dan has spoken to and trained over two million people in over 70 countries. In the last 29 years he has helped launch markets throughout South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, the USA and Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Russia, Dubai, the Middle East, and just about all the former Eastern Bloc countries. Dan’s influence can also be found in South Central Europe in Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary. He has helped launch and develop virtually every country in Western Europe including Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, Holland, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, the UK and more. Over the years Dan has also spearheaded the business spreading into the Far East including Japan, Hong Kong, China, South Korea, and Taiwan.

Dan has been written up in countless MLM journals and books such as “Who Stole the American Dream” by Burke Hedges, “A Global Vision” by Raymond Hung, “The Greatest Networkers in the World” by John Milton Fogg. In addition, Dan has been written about in many magazine publications including “Netcoo” Europe’s largest direct sale magazine and on the future of network marketing in “Networking Times”, one of the most respected journals on the industry globally.

Clearly, people around the world have made fortunes using the leadership, training and encouragement of Dan Catto. Dan has countless CD’s, DVD’s, Videos, Tapes and Training Manuals that are marketed around the World. All of these tools are available on his SteamTeam web site.
