VP Marketing

Chuck Hanson

I've had an amazing journey and my goal at this stage is to help as many people as I can live the kind of life that I've had. NO BOSS (except my wife & Rocky my dog!). I owned an advertising business for 16 years that I built from the ground up. I decided to sell that business in 1987 because I was exposed to NETWORK MARKETING. I have had the great fortune to live a dream life through my success all over the world.

In mid 2020 I was introduced to HELIUM and the HELIUM HOTSPOT. After spending a few days looking at what I thought could be something that I had been looking for the past 50 years I asked my good friend Rick Cotton that I've known for 20+ years to take a look. He came back with the same conclusion - we've got to take this to all the people in the world we know!! So the journey begins. I know that I can eclipse what I've done in the past 33 years in the next 3-4 years because we not only have the perfect product we have the perfect opportunity and I look forward to serving as many people as I can in iHub.
