The entire story began with product creator Mark starting a business known as Granite Fitness, which comprised of packages with various permutations of self-authored weight loss e-books and physical products. Atanas came on-board as the marketing manager, who was swift and masterful in targeting the market, running the beta testing, acquiring customers and helping them experience weight loss success. The seeds of the partnership were sowed despite Granite Fitness eventually becoming a free fitness blog as a philanthropic pursuit.
With a newfound understanding that they have a similar mindset, the trial partnership between product creator and marketing manager gradually solidified as they quickly realised that they had complementing strengths in areas that could serve them well in the internet business arena. The drive and ambition of the two men then spawned a series of business ideas, some of which resulted in internet-based business operations while others resulted in other “goodwill” operations.
As the number of operations increased, a solution was required in order to streamline and manage all of the individual services, diverse as they might be. It would make strategic sense for some operations to exist more autonomously with their own website and social media presence. The rest, however, can be consolidated into a network, in line with the philosophy that the services provided in one area has the potential to fulfill the need of other areas. Thus, the network was born.

He has tonnes of experience in media and public relations, having had seven years of experience working at the helm of his nation’s premier television broadcast network.
