ARLINGTON, TEXAS – January 31. 2008 – Sandra Lee, owner of Advance Associates Inc, in Arlington, is one of a growing group of entrepreneurs nationwide selected to participate in the Duct Tape Marketing Authorized Coach program.  

“The selection process was quite involved,” says John Jantsch, award-winning small business expert and creator of the Duct Tape Marketing system. “To ensure the program’s success, I limited the scope of the initial offering to business owners who excel in their particular industries but who want to expand their own marketing efforts and share their newfound expertise with others.”  

“To say that I’m honored to be chosen as a licensee is an understatement,” says Lee. “I realize that the competition for these spots is fierce, so I’m thrilled to be one of the coaches chosen. Now the pressure will be on me to implement the marketing strategies and tactics I learn in taking my business to the next level – as well as my client’s businesses.  Having served as a small business consultant and coach since 1987, I see the Duct Tape Marketing System as a wonderful addition to my coaching and consulting practice.”
