About Gina Gaudio-Graves
Gina Gaudio-Graves is the founder and CEO of The Abundance Group, LLC, the parent company of Directions University. She is the Dean & Founder of Directions University. (Note that “Directions University” is formerly “The IM University”. The name was changed in July 2009.)
Online, most people know her as “The JV Queen”, a title she earned by organizing some of the most successful product launches on the internet, for some of the internet’s biggest names such as Shawn Casey, Willie Crawford, Russel Brunson, David Garfinkel, Henry Gold, Holly Cotter, and many others.
Gina began her career online in 1996 after a disabling car accident left her unable to continue her career as a litigator. When the accident left her unable to get out of a hospital bed or wheelchair for almost 10 years, she turned to the internet as a way to fill her days and afford her mounting medical bills.
She’s been full time online ever since!
As a JV Broker, Gina often saw millions of dollars being left on the table, over and over again by her clients who refused to listen to her advice … These clients wanted the immediate gratification that a Joint Venture Product Launch could bring, and weren’t interested in doing things the RIGHT way to build a business that would be successful for the long haul if it meant that it would take longer to bring in big dollars.
Gina’s JV’s would bring in millions in a short period of time (often in less than a week!), but a year later, profits from the promotion would be long gone, and Gina’s client would be left wondering where the next dollars were coming from. This usually meant creating yet another new product, and a new product launch.
After having worked long and hard on the first product, most clients just didn’t want to have to create yet another. This not only limited the client’s income, it limited Gina’s as well!
In 2007, Gina’s health had declined to the point that doctors gave her only 12 to 18 months to live. That’s why she hit the road in an RV to see the country before she died. But 6 months later, a massage therapist gaver her a piece of advice that forever changed her life. Not only did it allow her to live, Gina completely recovered!
Gina calls this her “miraculous transformation”. She feels that she has been given a huge gift — a second chance at life! To repay this gift, she is more focused and driven than ever on helping her peers, entrepreneurs, get what they want most: success in their lives and businesses!
