The Scarboroughs: Their Life Together
Currently, David and Mary split their time between their two homes in Arizona and western North Carolina. They follow the warm weather spending their winters in AZ and their summers in their cool mountain retreat in the North Carolina. They feel fortunate that they’ve succeeded in developing a thriving business which allows them to do what they love – share their passion for marketing with their readers, seminar students, conference audiences, and others – and still enjoy their individual and collective hobbies and make time for each other, their children, grandchildren, extended family members and friends.
